Dreaming of a sunny Mediterranean style home on this side of the pond? This unique Elkins Park home invokes the wonderful era of elegance, graceful details, spacious rooms and perfect scale that we often see on sunny European hills. Custom built in 1920, for a prominent Philadelphia area banking family, this spacious 3381 sq ft property is a beautiful canvas for your personal touches. Whether its your unique collection of art, sculpture, music or just easy day to day living, this home can become a showcase for your personal lifestyle. And if you’re dreaming of entertaining again, the flow throughout this home and the connection to the outdoor spaces is ideally suited for events – large or small, casual or formal. The splendor of the home lies in the design throughout all the rooms and details of the house created by the harmony of line, color and scale. Light and bright, there are so many possibilities – numerous spaces for home offices, play areas, private spots and open spaces, yoga, indoor/outdoor living, terraces off the second floor bedrooms to enjoy a coffee, an afternoon tea or a peaceful nightcap. Rhododendrons line the pathway up to the front door. Step inside the first entry to a walk in coat closet on one side and a discreetly located powder room on the other. Open a French door to a large foyer – an ideal spot to welcome guests, showcase artwork or collections. The large living room off the foyer is an ideal space to set up various living areas – perhaps a grand piano or instruments for the music lover, a games table, or couches to curl up in front of the wood burning fireplace. Be sure to see the storage cabinet perfectly concealed in the rich paneled fireplace wall with matching stone accent. French doors open up to one of several outdoor living spaces – a large stone patio with a classic old world feel – a perfect extension of living room entertainment. The stunning heated solarium features a wood burning fireplace, a gorgeous stone floor, is surrounded by outdoor views framed by expansive arched French windows, and doors opening up to an intimate outdoor patio area. A large arched doorway in the living room connects to a light filled dining room with the most perfectly arched bay window. Spacious and bright, this room also features French doors leading out to another stone patio – perfect spot for an after-dinner dessert. The kitchen showcases a unique large fan running the length of the island, making a great focal point. Windows along one side and extra high ceilings give this space endless possibilities for a creative and unique custom kitchen with space for all our modern day amenities. Just off the kitchen is a pretty room which would make a beautiful light and bright laundry/mud room. Coming up to the second floor is a large landing with 4 delightful rooms – featuring built-ins, French windows and doors and terraces off of 2 of the bedrooms. All 4 bedrooms connect to a Jack and Jill bathroom. Terraces are found off 2 of the bedrooms. This could be an ideal master suite floor – with an office, bathroom, terrace, workout room. Up another set of the extra wide steps and you will come to the third floor. A bathroom, a bedroom and lots of living space make this floor space with its unique lines an ideal suite onto itself. Outside, a large 2 car garage and a private side yard all located in a cul de sac on a beautiful street offers additional outdoor space and privacy. The slate roof has been meticulously maintained. This is an ideal home for the discerning buyer looking for a unique canvas for a personal living space! Please note that several rooms are virtually staged.
