Refined elegance, an English Country house in Northside Villanova. Gracefully situated on a pillared, manicured 1.8-acre property at the end of a quaint, private lane in Northside Villanova awaits this prominent, custom built English Country house. Designed by renowned architect Fred J. Bissinger, the impressive two-story facade was built of cut stone, curved Limestone and features copper and wrought iron appointments which when combined extend an impressive entree across deep slate steps indoors to a gracious formal foyer, featuring soaring 10-foot ceilings throughout, finely detailed English millwork and welcoming arched cased openings. While there is a distinct feel of a gracious Main Line manse across its 3 levels, and 9500+ SF, the modern, open flowing floor plan is transformative. Gracious, tall windows combined with high ceilings and a North facing front provides a glorious flow of natural sunlight throughout the home and notably in the master suite. The true gourmet kitchen, resplendent with recently replaced marble tops, boasts a lovely island with integral prep sink and comfortable seating for 4 5. The kitchen appliances are as to be expected, including dual built-in Subzero refrigerators with freezer drawers below, a six burner stainless stainless steel Viking cooktop and dual built-in wall ovens. The popular breakfast room has two outside entrances, one directly to the slate patio and the other to the backyard. Walking inside through the three-car garage, there is delightful space that nicely transitions the back staircase, mudroom, powder room and convenient built-in closets back into the kitchen. A beamed fireside family room with 3 sets of French doors overlooks the lovely, private backyard, and through the center hallway is the formal powder room, a private paneled study with gas fireplace, a formal living room with piano nook and fireplace and a lovely formal dining room. There is a wet bar/butlers pantry off the dining room to the kitchen that completes the first floor.The extraordinary, walk-out finished lower level expertly combines luxurious appointments with convenient living space, including a mirrored exercise pavilion, a stunning wet bar and requisite temperature controlled wine cellar and a comfortable screening area with adjacent powder room. With nine foot ceilings and hardwood floors, the lower level includes walk-out french doors at grade level and a ~kid-friendly~ wing that has made an ideal art studio. The sun-filled master suite occupies the western end of the second floor of the home. The bedroom and sitting room have vaulted ceilings and marble bath is luxurious with whirpool tub, his and her vanities and walk-in closets. There are three additional large family bedrooms and bathrooms, a neat study ~nook~ and a substantial guest suite off the back staircase. Nine foot ceilings or more throughout the second floor provide an even larger feel to every space. A walkup third level could be finished into an additional bedroom, bath and family room with minimal expense, as it was prepared for finishing. Outside, with cobblestone inlays and curbing, the circular driveway winds gracefully into the three car garage and is ideal when hiring a valet service for large gatherings. Extreme privacy is present with mature evergreen and holly throughout and lush landscaping and lawn.
