650 DODDS LN, GLADWYNE, PA 19035 (MLS # 1000342556)
The legendary Main Line estate, Rocky Crest, has returned to the market. Built circa 1901, this elegant home was classically designed and showcases superior workmanship, stunning architectural details and picturesque natural views. Even recently added amenities and improvements blend seamlessly. This breathtaking residence sits privately on over 15 acres, some of which are preserved in perpetuity, and include a gorgeous in-ground pool, tennis court, carriage house with two 1-bedroom apartments inside, as well as a wine-tasting room with an enormous and temperature-controlled 1,000-bottle cellar. A circular drive at the main entrance leads to the grand reception hall flooded with light and rich detail. This grand hall leads to the heart of the house, the main Drawing Room/Living Room, with an oversized fireplace and custom millwork. Surrounding all this outside are the most exquisite formal and terraced gardens originally designed by world-famous landscape architect Thomas Sears. The main house is split into various wings: the home's many bedrooms and their individual bathrooms are scattered tastefully throughout, while the East wing contains the incomparable master suite with large sitting rooms, one with fireplace and balcony, an office/nursery, two private baths, and much more. And all of the bedrooms look out to the expansive grounds and are accessible via the elevator, the grand staircase, and the back staircase. French doors open gracefully into the various terraces. Seven fireplaces cast their warmth. The custom kitchen features all high-end finishes and appliances including a newer Wolf range. The media room, located on the main floor, is simply nonpareil - from the warmth of the paneling, beautiful built-in bookcases and the intimate feel of the space. Even the acoustics in the home are to be appreciated. The stairwell within the Wet Bar hides the charming Rathskeller and leads to an inviting gaming room with massive fireplace. Each of the many rooms of this glorious estate home has a feel, a warmth and a nuance about it which together makes it difficult to describe. To find such an estate so exquisitely designed, so privately situated on the Main Line is almost unheard of. To be part of its future is incalculable.
