This meticulously updated Colonial Revival gem originally built in the late 18th century and expanded in 1927 by renowned architect R. Brognard Okie is set on a breathtaking 2.5-acre private lot with a terraced lawn and endless views of Gulph Creek and beyond. Formerly the manor house of Woodstock, the Van Pelt estate at Radnor, it offers over 8000 square feet of living space above grade, complete with the original features installed by Okie, plaster on stone construction, eighteen-inch-thick stone walls, solid wood shutters, root cellar, spring house, and a recently built oversized 4-car garage. With over 100 feet of linear southern exposure, the home boasts gracious sun-filled rooms that flow seamlessly into one another, perfect for entertaining, each space offering large deep-set windows, with two sets of French doors and four additional 16-lite doors leading to multiple terraces and extensive views. High ceilings, beautifully restored original random width pegged floors, incredible millwork, 11 dramatic fireplaces, solid wood interior doors, wrought iron hardware, stunning craftsmanship including Okie designed built-ins and customized expanded spaces throughout the residence hint at the grandeur of yesteryear but perfectly suit today’s lifestyles. Recent improvements by the current owners include updated systems, plumbing, HVAC and electric. On the ground floor, you will find an entry suitable for welcoming guests in the style of a by-gone era, a cavernous view of the handcrafted three-story staircase, a powder room, generously sized game room, dining hall with formal lounge, and a fabulously renovated gourmet kitchen with enormous walk-in pantry and service staircase. From the formal entry, ascend the main staircase to a landing area complete with French doors to the library and four separate custom suites. The primary suite occupies the west wing and offers privacy from the remaining rooms, with a newly renovated luxuriously appointed bath and walk-in dressing room, both with custom built-ins. The east wing of the 2nd floor offers a junior suite and two additional bedrooms, each with a fireplace, ample storage and updated bath. The third floor has an additional five bedrooms, two full bathrooms and bonus laundry facility. The primary laundry room is located in the walk-out lower level which is partially finished, clean, dry and easily expandable into 2500 square feet of additional space. Enjoy this private retreat while being just minutes away from renowned schools, trains, the airport, shopping, restaurants, endless recreational facilities and more. A real one-of-a-kind treasure!
