Come visit this magical Main Line farmhouse estate and you'll never want to leave! This oasis will afford your family a unique, irresistible mix of privacy and exclusivity, with easy access to shopping, restaurants, schools and Center City. It's hard not to fall in love with the dramatic setting on enchanting Wister Road, a hidden-away street with only two houses and virtually no car traffic. Peace and serenity are yours on 2.2 acres of lovely landscaped grounds with a creek running through; yet you're just a half mile from Suburban Square and everything else you need. What a rare offering! Down a tranquil rhododendron-lined meandering driveway awaits a stunning stone home with lots of history and love put into it. Built in 1909 and extensively updated by the current owners of 20+ years, is both an architectural gem and a comfortable place to live. Numerous updates were thoughtfully completed over the years. On the exterior, these include architectural roof shingles; a repaved driveway with new stone pillars, lighting and stone apron; and a redesign/rebuild of the rear outdoor patio with new stone wall, stairs and lighting, blending original brick of the house and new flagstone. Inside is as impressive, with extensive renovations done in the kitchen, pantry, library, bathrooms, laundry room and basement; the addition of a first floor sky-lit hall, mudroom and powder room; radiant heat flooring in several areas; updated electrical with new panels; and central air. As importantly, the residence has beautiful bones, structure and flow, with all the modern comforts you want. There's no better house to entertain in, with wonderful nooks for private conversations and grand spaces for large crowds to convene. Relax or host guests in the formal dining room, living room, glorious sunroom with heat, faux painted walls and new carpeting, and elegant library/TV room with wood paneling brought in from a 1740s Connecticut farmhouse. The butler's pantry with original built-in cabinetry and well-appointed chef's kitchen feature striking wide-plank pine floors relocated from an early 1900s whiskey bar in Maryland. Even the sun-filled kitchen, hall, mudroom and first floor powder room have radiant heat to warm your feet! In summer, hang-out on the fabulous back patio overlooking the sprawling yard where you can cook/gather with friends and family. When it's time to unwind, take either of two staircases to the sleeping quarters. The second floor offers four generous bedrooms (including the enormous en-suite master with three different window views), three baths and laundry room, and the third floor presents another four bedrooms (two now used as offices) and a full bath. Enhancing the lifestyle is a partial-finished full basement with new carpet and a powder room, and a detached two-car garage with an apartment that can be renovated above. From the exquisite details and irresistible charm to the contemporary finishes and convenient locale, this home is truly one of a kind.
