It boasts panoramic views directly into Ashbridge Park. Topping it off, the location is fabulous! Walk to downtown Bryn Mawr with its five-star dining, walk to a park with tennis courts and playground & walk to Rosemont train. As you enter the ample foyer you are greeted by soaring vaulted ceilings as high as seventeen feet and floor to ceiling glass windows in the five hundred square foot skylighted Great room. The far stone wall features large, commissioned lead glass windows that transmit full spectrum light. The desire to reconvene with nature greatly influenced the mid-century movement and gave birth to the open first floor concept with incorporation of natural materials to create a timeless aesthetic. You will marvel at the stunning stone interior walls in the Foyer, Great Room, Dining Room, Library, Kitchen, and lower-level walk-out to pool Family Room. The central Great Room and Library Wraparound Fireplace is constructed of 560,000 pounds of local sourced quarry stone that would be cost prohibitive to replicate today. Walnut railings, true wood walnut paneling and interior exposed beams create an inviting living space with a cool vibe. This home includes two guest suites which provide room enough for family and visitors. A ten-ton geothermal closed loop HVAC system significantly reduces energy costs to heat and cool the home.

Uninterrupted views of 28.8-acre Ashbridge Park, with its long scenic walking paths, are seen through the large expanses of extra thick glass windows in every room at the back of the home. Outside, the rear of the home features two spacious stone walled slate floored patios. The upper patio extending off the Great Room has a resort sized chess board sparking the imagination for a fun outdoor tournament. The lower patio extending off the Family Room provides a gorgeous setting for outdoor dining and lounging in front of the pool & the flat professionally landscaped soccer field sized grass back yard. Extensive outdoor lighting illuminates the gorgeous setting as the day wains. In the front of the home a broad circular driveway lined with Belgian blocks is accented by a sundial medallion. The home features a partially heated second drive down to the spectacularly outfitted garage.
