Welcome to 508 Penllyn Pike in the heart of Lower Gwynedd. This absolutely pristine Victorian Farmhouse is set on 5 gorgeous acres with a pool, 2 story barn and a detached carriage house. Built in 1901, the original structure has been carefully and thoughtfully renovated to preserve all the charm and character one would expect from a home built in the early 1900~s. The subsequent additions to the home have been seamlessly executed under the exquisite eye of architect Warren Claytor. Known for his traditional, timeless design he has flawlessly incorporated old and new. There are custom built-ins throughout crafted from the finest materials right down to the hardware and hinges. Not a detail has been missed in this stunning home. The main house offers 5 bedrooms including a light filled master suite with vaulted ceiling, master bathroom, dressing area and an additional sitting room that could be used as a secluded home office, dressing area or nursery. There are 2 other generously sized bedrooms, a den with fireplace, full bathroom, an incredible laundry room as well as an office or homework space that provides a gorgeous view of the property. The third floor has 2 beautiful bedrooms, a full bath and a den that is the perfect retreat for children or guests. The 2 dens on the 2nd and 3rd floors could also be used as bedrooms if needed. The expansive, gourmet kitchen features professional grade appliances, a massive island with seating for 5, a copper farmhouse sink and both wood and granite counter-tops. Open to the family room with a wood burning fireplace, it~s the perfect spot for enjoying time with your family. Off the kitchen is a breakfast room with a fireplace, a butler~s pantry and the formal dining room, also with a fireplace. This thoughtful layout is ideal for entertaining both large and small groups. There is a front to back formal living room on the other side of the first floor that has 2 intimate gathering spots for relaxing by the fire, reading or conversation. The first floor is completed by a large and functional mudroom and 2 powder rooms. The grounds of the property are just as impressive as the home. Enjoy the outdoor fireplace on the patio, the view from the large front porch or a swim in the pool surrounded by specimen plantings and tasteful landscaping. The second floor of the detached 2 story barn is currently being used as a home gym and game room. There are horse stalls in the barn as well as plenty of storage. At the rear of the property there is a carriage home with a kitchen and full bath. Although it is in need of some tlc it could be the perfect guest home, in-law or au-pair residence or pool house. Elegant yet understated this breathtaking property is truly one of a kind. It has to be seen to be fully appreciated. Enjoy a short walk to Penllyn station for an easy train ride to the city, Blue Ribbon Wissahickon School District, close proximity to prestigious private schools and a short drive to many shops and restaurants including the new Whole Food market.
