This Villanova home is truly unique: designed by Walter K. Durham, the premier 20th-century architect in the area, it is sun-graced and elegant. Of this renowned architect, the Lower Merion Conservancy states: Durhams revival-style houses are highly recognizable. Whether executed in stone, brick, or stucco, Durhams designs defy simple classification and convey a quality of timelessness. Tasteful renovation has preserved the original touches, with its European Colonial feel and beautiful, columned front porch. Located in the highly desirable Lower Merion School District, the 6 bedrooms and 4 full baths lend ample opportunity for personal spaces. The Villanova Estate area is a beautiful, secluded section of Villanova, which is close to so much. The Blue Route is minutes away, as is Villanova University. The stunning gardens of Stoneleigh are close by, as are the numerous restaurants and shops of Bryn Mawr, Rosemont, and Villanova. Enter the home via the lovely walkway and covered porch leading to the front door and interior brick-floored foyer. The living room features crown molding, floor-to-ceiling windows for ample sunlight, fireplace with attractive mantel, and a built-in bookcase with cabinet. The dining room, also with crown molding, has a triple window, twin China cabinets, and plank French doors leading to the outdoor patio. The eat-in kitchen is beautifully planned, with granite countertops, a center island with bar seating, and abundant cabinet space. The kitchen also has high-quality, stainless steel appliances, including a GE five-burner cooktop and microwave, Whirlpool double oven, and GE refrigerator, as well as a Maytag dishwasher. It opens to the family room on the finished lower level, where there is also a utility room, powder room, and laundry closet. All mechanicals are on this level, as well as access to the attached, two-car garage and outdoor patio. A few stairs lead to the second level and its wonderful guest suite. In addition to the bedroom with en-suite bath, there are two additional bedrooms on this level (easily convertible to home offices), as well as a full hall bath with pedestal sink, marble tile, and Kohler bath/tub combination. The third level is devoted to the main suite, with a generously sized bedroom and a sitting/dressing room opening to the en-suite bath with skylights. Luxurious and stunning, it features a cathedral ceiling, marble tile, Kohler jetted soaking tub, and stall shower. The fourth level, also sunny and cheerful, has two additional carpeted bedrooms with skylights and a hall bath with tub/shower combination (as well as access to attic storage). The beauty of this home extends to the rear yard, which is level, spacious, and fenced. The side patio is perfect for entertaining. Make this beautiful home your own, with its lush, verdant surroundings. Enjoy its peaceful setting, just a short drive from shopping at Haverford Square and attractions including Ludington Library, Bryn Mawr Film Institute, and numerous restaurants, gardens, secondary schools, and universities. Create new memories within these stately walls.
