Property Description

This beautiful 1950s stone colonial is situated on a corner lot in the heart of Old Laverock. The foliage that surrounds this full-thickness stone property is home to a variety of mature Cedar and Japanese Maple trees creating a serene sense of privacy that can be enjoyed at your leisure. Additional exterior space features two koi ponds (487gal. & 128gal.) an 18 zone sprinkler system, a wonderful assortment of large rock landscaping, and a beautiful Flagstone patio perfect for entertaining family and friends alike. As you enter the southern front facing facade you’ll begin your journey through this 4,140sqft magnificent home in a traditional style foyer complete with a customized tile half bathroom and grand staircase leading to the family quarters. Pride of ownership is evident in this home; over 100+ hours have been spent throughout this home carefully stripping paint from windows, window sills, baseboards, mantels, and most impressively the centralized fireplace situated in the family room just off the traditional foyer. The delicate work that went into stripping paint from this home has been marveled and complemented by several professional painters and has been deemed “some of the best work we’ve ever seen” and “this is what we aspire to achieve when we remove paint”, these comments are just the baseline description of how well this home has been cared for by the current owners and their attention and thoughtfulness for original features. As you continue through the first floor of this traditional layout you’ll encounter a study/library that can easily be converted into a main floor bedroom, a traditional dining room with an absolute astonishing bay window that has been intricately restored using top-of-the-line Fine Paints of Europe, a vast eat-in kitchen with breakfast nook, stainless steel appliances, double oven combination, granite countertops, downdraft five-burner gas cooktop with prep-sink and butlers pantry; this home has it all. To further complete the first floor is another updated powder room off the kitchen, several closets with plenty of storage and a secondary staircase that leads into your second floor great room. The final piece to the main floor level is an elegant, bright and airy sunroom that features an exquisite custom painted cathedral ceiling which makes for the perfect place to spend your mornings relaxing in the overflow of natural light that enters this room. The upper level for this home is a continuation of impressment because of its space and ability to accommodate a growing family with four large bedrooms and recently painted full-bathroom. The primary bedroom, which faces due-east, features two closets, its own ensuite bathroom and a lofted, private, dressing room with an additional updated bathroom complete with marvel hex tile and modern-edge freestanding tub. The upper level is established by a large due-west facing great room which boasts a gorgeous oversized arch window that perfectly frames the foliage along the west side of the property. This is truly a home for anyone who can appreciate original details and is looking to put the finishing touches on an already magnificent stone colonial. Additional features include a security system, a semi-finished basement with workbench and additional working fireplace, a two car garage with additional loft space for additional storage, a gas-to-electric generator which allows you to switch from private/peco power source, deep window sills and wood windows throughout. This home is the quintessential definition of detail and the while the photos showcase this home in an amazing way this is a property you absolutely must see in person. This home is perfect for any family looking to spread their wings in the desirable Cheltenham School District so schedule your private tour today!
