Welcome to this captivating, one-of-a-kind 1-1/2 story home set on a serene, beautifully landscaped yard that is truly a hide-away with hidden yard and gardens and a privately set 20, 000 gal in-ground pool w/poolhouse. Meticulously and lovingly maintained inside and out, this home features top of the line and well thought out appointments, updated neutral decor, and many special amenities. The fabulous open floor plan invites gracious entertaining of small and large crowds which easily flow indoors and out. The first floor boasts the spectacular 48' great room with partial cathedral ceiling, spectacular wood-burning stone fireplace and gleaming hardwood floors. The floor to ceiling windows and sliding doors to the wrap -around deck envelope the interior space with light and the natural outdoor beauty. The newly remodeled, eye-popping kitchen was skillfully designed by the serious cook with an abundance of custom cabinetry, granite countertops, architectural glass backsplash, 5-burner gas stove with pot-filler, two 30" wall ovens, additional prep sink, 2 dishwashers, comfort Amtico flooring, and breakfast area that opens to the yard. 3 bedrooms and a gracious full bath with heated floor complete the main level. The awesome staircase to the 2nd floor leads to a balcony overlooking the great room where you'll love the built-in furniture-quality bookshelves and yet more floor to ceiling windows from which to enjoy the views. The master bedroom, also on this level, has an in-suite office/sitting room with sliding doors opening to a deck overlooking the pool. A full bath, a walk-in closet, and wall to wall Masland carpeting complete the 2nd floor. The unfinished basement has plentiful cabinetry and the 2 car garage is quite generous. There's more storage than you can imagine. 3 zone gas heat, 2 zone AC, and public water lines in the street should one choose to tie-in down the road. Walking distance to the Cultural District and with easy access to SEPTA/Trans-Bridge bus to NYC, Rtes 202, 263, and 611 and the PA Turnpike, the location is superb.
