Majestically set on a gently rising, superior 1.5 acre lot on a coveted street in the Villanova Estate area, this classic French Country residence was originally designed by the renowned Architect Walter K. Durham. The architectural goal of recent expansions was to preserve and enhance the original dramatic "Durham" design elements, such as floor to ceiling windows and to produce a home that is perfect for family living and entertaining. An "open" plan, coming from the entrance courtyard is now synchronized, visually, through the home to the rear pool area walled courtyard, creating a melding of interior and exterior spaces. Similarly, a "chefs' dream" Gourmet Kitchen now opens up to a spacious Family Room with breathtaking views of the glorious grounds, pool, spa, terraces and Pool House. The new executive retreat now features approximately 9000 square feet of exquisite living space. Gracious room sizes with high ceilings, expansive bright windows and a wonderful open flow. The home features 5 en-suite bedrooms, 6 full and 2 half custom baths and a fully finished daylight Lower Level. The entire landscape was designed by an award winning Landscape Architect. A European gravel entrance circular auto court, rear walled courtyard, an Alee' of "tree form" white hydrangeas, magical English Oak Pyramid street trees, Blue Princess Holly detailing, extensive Belgian block borders and Pennsylvania Blue-stone capped walls. Vermont slate roof, copper down spouts and gutters, extensive exterior molding detail, one of a kind custom crystal and brass detailed railings, and much more.
