The joy of family is celebrated in this commanding 1.6-acre estate located in one of Bryn Mawr’s most sought-after neighborhoods. Situated in desirable Radnor Township, this historical community boasts award-winning schools and beautifully-maintained parks amid the charming ambiance of a quintessential Main Line town. Major transportation is easily accessible affording a short commute to the vibrant city of Philadelphia.
A rare find along a quiet street of well-established homes, this newer residence was built in 2006 by prominent Main Line Builder Chip Vaughn and features an array of handcrafted millwork, striking custom finishes and luxurious appointments. Comprised of 8,800 square feet, the design provides a warm setting conducive to large-scale entertaining, as well as comfortable everyday living. Casual gatherings will thrive in this open floor plan and center in the oversized family room with its coffered ceiling and gas fireplace, while formal occasions are well hosted in the bright and airy living room or generously sized dining room. Facilitating everyday meals as well as special occasions is the open chef’s kitchen outfitted with top-of-the-line appliances, ample storage, spacious marble island, cheery sun-filled breakfast room, butler’s pantry and catering station.
From the main floor, an impressive wide staircase leads to the lower level, where a glass-enclosed, temperature-controlled wine cellar provides a haven for wine aficionados. Included in this finished basement are a fully equipped fitness center, billiards room, kitchen area and full bath.
Family accommodations consist of four ensuite bedrooms and a lavishly appointed master suite with soaring vaulted ceilings, two full bathrooms and a relaxing deck overlooking the grounds. Ideal for the at-home executive is the study with gas fireplace, handsomely appointed with an abundance of shelving and cabinetry.
Outside, lush landscaping and meticulously manicured grounds seclude the home in privacy and provide a colorful backdrop for summertime parties. Complementing the heated swimming pool are a covered porch, stone walkways and a two-story carriage house strategically designed to serve both as a pool cabana and guest accommodations with a full kitchen, sitting area, bedroom and two-car garage. An additional four-car garage, augmenting the main house, completes this refined family home.
