Rocky Crest is a grand dame of the Main Line, a very privately situated, c. 1908 estate on 15+ acres (5.9 are preserved for perpetuity). Its design reflects classic, timeless principles of scale, proportion and detail. Winding your way down the private lane feels like youve arrived at a proper English country house, from the fancy wrought-iron gateway to the imposing, columned, and pedimented front facade. Its setting, designed by landscape architect Thomas W. Sears, consists of formal gardens and terraced lawns rolling out to sun-dappled expanses dotted by mature trees. Inside, a grand reception foyer runs front to back. Throughout the home French doors provide access to terraces able to comfortably host a large soiree. While Rocky Crests formal rooms are magnificent, with exquisite millwork and moldings, fireplaces, soaring ceilings and oversized sash windows, its everyday spaces are eminently livable. The fully updated, custom kitchen features top-grade fixtures, finishes and appliances. The large dining area also accesses an informal dining/family room and sunroom beyond. These rooms and a richly paneled study are the heart of the home. They access a veranda where al fresco dining is on order throughout the summer. Private quarters (13 BR/9.3BA) are located on the second and third floors, accessible via a grand staircase, elevator or rear staircase. To one side is a series of five guest en-suite bedrooms. The main bedroom suite comprises an entire wing and has its own sitting room with fireplace, an office/nursery, well-designed dressing rooms, and his and her baths, all updated. There are five bedrooms and two full baths on the third floor, plus generous storage. Notably, each bedroom has lovely views of the grounds. A wet bar on the first floor hides a stairwell down to a space finished in the Rathskeller tradition with fireplace and plenty of space for table games or fitness area. A nearly Olympic-sized pool, complete with pool house, and tennis court provide more recreational opportunities. Separated from the main residence is a carriage house/garage with two one-bedroom apartments above and stables converted to a fun wine-tasting room with climate-controlled cellar able to hold 1,000 bottles. Rocky Crest, so magnificent in its repose, will rise to any occasion, whether used as a family house or a place to entertain ? a must-have estate home for the buyer who wants the quality of old-world craftsmanship along with important modern updates.
