Surrounded by lush greenery on an expansive 1.62 acre lot, this home captivates all with its remote privacy and impeccable details throughout. Located in the prestigious Highland Lane neighborhood, this five-bedroom, four-full and two-half-bathroom custom built 10,000+ sq ft country home is sure to impress.
Upon entry, you are greeted to the property by iron gates that encapsulate the rolling hills of pristine green grass, finely manicured landscaping, a sweeping circular driveway, and a delightful carriage house equipped with mature ivy and a picturesque courtyard. The grand 10,000+ sq ft main country home was originally designed by Peabody and Stearns in 1919, and is adorned with classic 15-16th century Italian architectural elements. While undergoing a few remodels throughout the years, the integrity of the original idyllic features have been kept true.
Enter the home through an elegant double door entry to find unparalleled details in the formal foyer, including rich mahogany millwork, imported Italian stone flooring, discerning coffered ceilings, an expertly contoured ascending staircase, an anchoring fireplace, and tall Palladian doorways that create a scenic view leading to the outdoor terrace. Crafted perfectly for hosting and entertaining esteemed guests inside and out, the west end of the main level features a polished library with the finest architectural finishes and a custom pocket door that leads to intricate and spacious living areas with illustrious beamed ceilings, an outdoor loggia boasting imported stone-carved accents on the walls, and a serene outdoor flagstone patio that overlooks the grounds. The refined east wing of the manor hosts an elegant formal dining room, a bright and airy sunroom, and a gourmet chef’s kitchen with soaring ceilings and stunning views is patiently waiting to be fashioned to the buyer's taste.
Climb the carefully crafted winding staircase or conveniently ascend by way of elevator to the upper level to find all five considerable bedrooms, including two intimate suites on each wing of the home, each equipped with marvelous ensuite baths and direct access to their own private terrace that enjoys breathtaking views of the countryside. Rounding out the upper level is an immense rear terrace detailed with fresco painting on the ceiling of the covered section, timeless light fixtures that illuminate the space in the evening hours, and a staircase that provides access to the voluminous rear yard. This property is completed by guest quarters that features a private entrance from the main home, a tremendous living room, a formal dining room, a kitchenette, two sizable bedrooms, and a masterfully tiled full bath.
Owning this unprecedented estate that highlights exquisite living spaces and exceptional detail is truly a one in a lifetime opportunity. Located in Bryn Mawr and steps from Highland Farm Park, the property boasts unparalleled privacy, yet enjoys easy access to local attractions and some of the region’s most desirable outdoor areas.
