Description
With repose befitting a proper English country house, Cricket Heath, situated on 26 acres of land is set back a long tree-lined drive. Designed as a replica of Mount Pleasant in Philadelphias Fairmount Park, considered one of the greatest historical American houses, this c. 1935 residence is itself in a park-like setting. It showcases classic Georgian colonial design with Palladian windows and detailed pediments and pilasters on both its front and rear facades. Its interior is stunning in its architectural detail, yet it manages to serve as a comfortable, livable home with manageable scale, flowing floor plan and fully updated finishes and amenities. Its main entrance hall replicates the one at Mount Pleasant. Front and back doors are capped by fanlights; door surrounds are carved in the William and Mary style; intricate crown moldings finish this space. To the right is a formal dining room with corner fireplace and a study now used as a music room; both have outstanding millwork and moldings. To the left is the main stairwell, a powder room and a family/living room lined in built-ins designed to perfectly fit the rooms original millwork. Like the other fireplaces in the house, this one features a carved wood surround that ensures it is the focal point of the space. A sizable cherry kitchen with large breakfast area and fireplace completes the first floor. Private quarters include a large main bedroom suite with fireplace, balcony, walk-in closet and custom, updated bath and four additional bedrooms and two additional baths. As a bonus, the lower level is finished as recreation space. For summer entertaining, the rear flagstone terrace, shaded by mature trees, and lawn flanked by award winning perennial gardens beckon. Just beyond is a seventy-five foot heated lap pool served by a cabana with full bath, sauna and fitness studio. Elsewhere on the grounds, a two-acre spring-fed pond to fish, kayak or ice skate, clapboard boathouse and a pony stable add to the array of recreational activities that the young?and the young at heart?can pursue here. Completing the property are a 2 bedroom caretaker house with separate driveway, attached three-car garage and a detached one-car garage with potting shed. A very special residence with one of Montgomery Counties most coveted addresses. Recently placed in Act 319 with low taxes, however sub-division is feasible.
