This home is your everything- a refuge, a family center, a workplace, an entertaining mecca. It is a walking neighborhood & walkable to stores & public transportation. Located on a quiet cul-de-sac, this lovely 6,100+ square foot, stone & stucco custom home was a complete architectural re-build in 2001. It is sited on just under a 1-acre lot with mature plantings, a patio, and a wonderful garden with bricked path. These features provide perfect spaces for quiet respite and entertaining. As you enter the multi-generational, handicapped-suited front entrance into the enclosed two-story, porcelain marble floored foyer, you will be captured by the tiled solarium which houses an endless exercise pool offering year-round use, maximum cleanliness, with minimum maintenance. The pool is surrounded by the adjacent library/office’s floor-to-ceiling windows. To the right is access to the oversized, 2-car garage with pool machinery room and a built-in shed room with both interior access as well as double door access to the outside. The solarium’s pool, with a full bath changing room, is for fun and exercise and its huge, windowed wall looks out to the beautiful, professionally landscaped, arboretum-quality gardens and grounds. The first floor & second floor both feature window-scaping with 3, 4, & 5-bank oversized Pella groupings to maximize the views from every room in the house. The amazingly comfortable living room includes a furnace-rated gas fireplace (adding heating capacity). Just beyond is the door to the powder room. Beyond the living room is the dining room with exceptional views to the enclosed garden & glass French doors to the solarium and pool. Next to the dining room is a wonderful chef’s kitchen with granite countertops, gas cooktop, subzero refrigerator, breakfast bar, door to the outside patio, & more. There is a large eating area within the kitchen and immediately next to that, a cozy gathering area for TV and relaxing between courses. The floors have been finished with beautiful and easy-to-clean Brazilian cherry ceramic tiles. There is an expansive butler’s kitchen for more kitchen storage which includes an extra double sink, refrigerator, oven, & dishwasher. Off the kitchen is a hall that houses the first-floor master bedroom or guest suite with great views, a large walk-in closet, and an updated, ample-sized tile bathroom with wheelchair accessible shower and jacuzzi tub. The 2nd floor has 3 to 4 bedrooms, all sharing a wonderful gathering area with fireplace. The oversized second master bedroom overlooking the property has space for a sitting area & office. It has an amazing tile bathroom with his/her water closets, a shower, a large jacuzzi tub, 2 large walk-in closets, and upstairs laundry room. The other two bedrooms share a hall bathroom. The fourth bedroom is now used as an Art/Exercise/Office and has its own powder room. It has a raised ceiling with 2 skylights, a bank of stainless-steel sinks, & walk-in closet. There are backstairs down to the atrium pool room & egress to the outside. The house is always cozy because heat delivery to the entire 1st and 2nd floors are accomplished via floored radiant heat in 7 separate zones. During power outages, heat and cooling is maintained via a whole-house generator backup system with automatic transfer. 4 expansive skylights have been added to the upstairs. The roof has 45-year rated shingles. Also, the house comes with a whole-house water filter system and interior automatic whole-house fire suppression system. The basement has separate outside access. This property is located along the I-95 & I-476 corridors with a short drive to Philadelphia & the airport. It is only a short distance from public transportation, award-winning Wallingford-Swarthmore schools, library, local shops, and fabulous restaurants. This is truly a must-see!
