Description
LOWER GWYNEDD TOWNSHIP: On a private lane of just five homes set around acres of preserved pastureland, this 9,000+ square foot estate is an amazing custom built retreat. The center hall design defines symmetry, with rooms radiating off a beautiful entry with handcrafted staircase, intricate millwork and hardwood floors. There is a stately library paneled in mahogany/cherry with gas fireplace and a large bay ideal for looking out on the 2.7 acre estate, a formal living room with fireplace, a formal dining room with another fireplace and dentil moulding, a tile-floored solarium/office and a music room. Two gorgeous sun rooms, one a breakfast room, the other featuring a 500 gal. salt-water spa, both with radiant heated floors, flank the two story Great Room. This space is the entertaining heart of the compound; elegant millwork and a wet bar serving area sit beneath skylights and a second floor balcony while a fieldstone wood-burning fireplace centers the room.The updated oak and granite kitchen features Sub Zero and GE appliances, random-width oak floors, with ample room for casual gatherings or family meals, and leads to the adjacent laundry space and mud room, as well as back stairs. If your lifestyle includes domestic help there is a separate bedroom and bathroom here. At the top of the central staircase are five distinct bedroom suites. The main bedroom features vault ceiling, a dramatic bath and two walk-in closets, as well as a sitting room with gas fireplace. the other bedrooms are generously sized with large closets and an additional bathroom at each end of the center hallway. Enjoy sharing a beverage on the upstairs balcony, ideally located for views of the lower patio and expansive yard.Finally, the lower level has been converted into an entertaining and gaming universe complete with full bar. Additional basement rooms include a workshop and the mechanical room, housing the 13 zone heater. A walk-up attic includes two of the A/C air handlers. A separate guest apartment and oversize, heated two-car garage complete this home. The house is protected by a hardwired fire alarm and a security camera system. Outside, view the terraced landscaping with two blue flagstone patios, a 240 square-foot pergola and adjacent rose garden. A half-acre of yard is enclosed by a six foot commercial grade powder-coated black aluminum fence, with outdoor landscape lighting through the grounds.Situated in the heart of Gywnedd Valley in Montgomery County, the grand brick estate home is ideal and rarely available.
