Property Description

We’ve all given the word HOME a lot of thought over the past two years, and with good reason. It’s the place where one lives, works, and spends a lot of time as a household. If your definition of household has been stretched (along with your patience) then this custom built, thoughtfully designed home might be what you’ve been searching for. The floor plan offers an open concept with an optimal use of space, a lot of space! This home boasts 5100 SQ FT on the first two floors, and an additional 2200+ SQ FT of living space which can be enjoyed in the AMAZING finished basement, so you’ll have plenty of room to find your own freedom when needed. This home’s gracious foyer has recessed stairs with both Living and Dining Rooms flanked on either side. It won’t be long before you’re contemplating who will be invited to your first dinner party in the elegant Dining Room with its’ stylish crown molding and glass paneled doors. On those days that you’re not feeling so fancy, you can simply dine in the expansive, light-filled Kitchen. You’ll have the option of dining in the spacious Breakfast Room, or you can saddle up to the granite-topped, center island for those quick meals-on-the-go. 42” cabinets, a home management station and pantry offer plenty of storage possibilities. The welcoming Great Room with vaulted 18’ ceiling is open to the Kitchen, and offers a cozy, floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace and skylights for natural light all year long. If al-fresco dining is your vibe, the sliding glass doors leading to the 1200 SQ FT Trex Deck with its outdoor speakers will easily prepare you to host the next block party. Don’t like bugs in the summer? No problem, this house has a screened-in porch too. As we’ve learned, no home is complete without an office, and this one won’t disappoint. Gleaming hardwood floors, and shiny glass-paneled doors will ward off any intruder during your Conference, Zoom or Margin calls. You’ll whistle while you work, delighting in the views of the magnificent backyard and… the generator. Yep, a 20kW whole-house generator, so you’ll never miss a day’s work! The efficient T-stair design gives you more options to ascend to the second floor to retreat in the Owner’s Suite. The architect knew who was paying the bill when she designed this space. The suite features a large walk-in closet, bedroom, office, sitting room and bath with separate vanities, soaking tub, and stall shower. The spacious en-suite bedroom hosts a full bath with tub-shower and, two additional bedrooms opposite the grand foyer, share the hall bathroom with dual vanity and tub-shower. It’s hard to imagine needing more space, but this pandemic-proof basement has it all! 2500 SQ FT includes 8’ ceiling height, both Media and Lounge areas complete with a wet bar, and (my favorite) a temperature-controlled, 1800 bottle wine cellar, so you’ll have roughly 5 years before you run out of wine. Additional space has been allocated for a home gym, but it can be closed off for a playroom or even accommodate an overnight guest. Whatever your option, you’ll appreciate having an extra full bathroom available as well as a separate HVAC Zone for cooling and heating the dry basement with the help of two sump pumps. Level rear yard has access to the neighborhood walking trails, and the almost 1-acre lot offers plenty of options for a pool if so desired. Top-Ranked Wissahickon Schools, access to beautiful Lower Gwynedd parks and trails, Shopping, Restaurants and proximity to rail, Route 309, PA Turnpike and I-476 should put this home at the top of your buyer's list! Want to see more? I’d love to take you for a private tour!
