Property Details

European, old-world elegance abounds in this custom-built Tudor-style home, situated along the 8th hole of Whitemarsh Valley Country Club. It features a turret, a circular driveway, an exquisite backyard with an in-ground pool, two staircases, an abundance of storage, and a myriad of unique architectural characteristics. Upon entering through impressive antique Cathedral double doors, you are welcomed into the turret - a grand foyer filled with natural light. Your eye is immediately drawn to the 27ft ceiling –bordered with intricately hand-crafted inlaid wood. The focal point is the curved wrought-iron-railed staircase, ascending to the second level. From the foyer, step down into the formal living room, boasting a soaring trestle wood ceiling. The original teak hardwood floors in a herringbone pattern are in pristine condition. The centerpiece of this room is the magnificent wood-burning fireplace. Reminiscent of a medieval castle, the massive hearth is encased with an elaborately sculpted 8ft tall stone mantle, complete with a Coat of Arms. The teak herringbone-patterned floors continue into the formal dining room, illuminated by a wall of windows. The spacious eat-in kitchen flows from the dining room and has a brick wood-burning fireplace, custom cabinets, and a splendid view of the backyard. A hallway connected to the kitchen contains the back stairs leading to the second level and is flanked by a good-sized laundry room, a full bath, and storage closets. Access to the garage is located off this hallway. Adjacent to the kitchen is a capacious bi-level family room with a wet bar, gas fireplace, and backlit stained-glass inlays above the bar. Step outside through the sliding doors into a secluded haven. The in-ground pool is surrounded by a flagstone patio and is hedged with a distinctive stone wall with a built-in water fountain. A few steps up from the pool area sits a sweeping manicured lawn, overlooking the golf course. The second level highlights four bedrooms, three full baths, and two cedar closets. The primary en-suite is striking, with a wood-burning fireplace, a separate walk-in dressing room, and a 4-piece tiled bath which includes a jetted tub. The second bedroom has a tiled, 4-piece private bath. The third and fourth bedrooms are large with plenty of closet space and share a hall bath. A walk-up attic is located on the third floor, yielding a wealth of storage. The immense basement is a blank canvas, with outside access. It contains a powder room and a plethora of storage space. This enchanting property leaves an indelible impression and yearns for your personal touch with some TLC. Conveniently located to shopping, restaurants, center city Philadelphia, and all major highways. Schedule a tour today. Don’t miss an opportunity to make this house your ultimate dream home!
