Take advantage of a rare opportunity to own a beautiful Main Line mansion. Elegantly situated in prestigious Wynnewood. Enter the driveway from Wister Road and wind past the front door to a circular parking area in front of the detached two-story garage Come in through the white-washed vestibule to a grand center hall with doors to the terrace at the end. The formal living room with attached study and solarium is to the right each with a wood-burning fireplace; the formal dining room with another fireplace is on the left. A hallway with closets and a half bath leads from the entrance to the butler’s pantry, kitchen, family room and mudroom/laundry. All on one floor! These working rooms are filled with cabinets, closets, and a full butlers’ pantry with glass cabinets to show off your china. The custom Italian themed kitchen has beautiful backsplash tile, rustic stained wood and a large granite center island for casual meals or prep work, a six-burner Wolf stove, an enormous built-in Sub-Zero refrigerator, a Dacor wall oven and microwave, along with two sinks, and a dishwasher. There is a large amount of counter space and cabinets. There is another dishwasher and sink in the pantry. Across from the kitchen is a cozy family room with fireplace and French doors that open to the expansive terrace. Set in over an acre there is plentiful outdoor space with areas for gardens, play and entertaining, and room to add a pool. The flagstone terrace runs along the entire back of the home with double steps over a fountain down to the extensive lawn. Each public room in this home is spacious, elegant and sunny. It’s perfect for entertaining and has hosted many glorious parties. Every room flows graciously into another allowing for intimate soirees as well as great celebrations. The dining room can seat up to 20 people; the hall can be set for dining up to 30 people. The terrace opens directly from the hall with ample space for al fresco dining, grilling and relaxing. The best element that sets this Spanish Hollywood style home apart from other homes is the ideal two-story layout (see floorplan). The main stairway is set to the left of the front entrance and turns once on a landing. On the second floor are six large bedrooms and four baths – all on the same floor. The expansive main suite is set in a separate wing and reached through an airy sitting room with French doors opening to a roof patio – perfect for morning coffee. The main bath is original and needs complete renovation. There are loads of closets – most fitted out with closet organizers. The sixth bedroom and bath were originally servant’s quarters but have been opened up to create a larger room. The bathroom is functional; however, this area is unfinished construction. Back stairs lead down to the pantry. With a little work this could be a fabulous playroom, au pair suite, or in-law suite. Full open stairs lead to an attic where renovations are incomplete. In addition to the above, there is a full unfinished basement for storage with a plumbing for a half-bath, a wine cellar, and outdoor access. Muddy kids, dogs can clean up before heading upstairs! There is also a detached two-car garage with a loft area that, with work, would be perfect for a studio, office, au pair suite, etc. There is a whole house emergency generator as well. This home was joyously lived in by the same family for sixty years. It saw celebrations and family dinners, welcomed friends and kids and dogs and cats. It’s ready for a new family to make it their wonderful home. The house is located one and a half blocks from Lower Merion High School, less than a mile from the wonderful Suburban Square retail center, less than a mile from the Wynnewood train station, and public transportation to center city is at the corner via the 44 bus.
