Property Description for 11 COOPERTOWN RD, HAVERFORD PA 19041

Tucked down a long winding private drive, Craig Hall is both formal yet livable at the same time. An exceptional residence with historic significance, it has been lovingly maintained and modernized over the years to become a one-of-a-kind home for family living and entertaining. This stately red brick English Georgian estate designed with stone exterior wall construction and graced with brick exterior walls, terracotta block interior walls and Samuel Yellen ironwork in both interior and exterior was created by renowned local architect Horace Trumbauer, who built for Philadelphia's most elite families as well as The Phila Museum of Art. Craig Hall was commissioned in 1924 by Katherine Craig Wright Muckle, the granddaughter of merchant Hugh Craig and her husband John Seiser Muckle, son of longtime manager of the Public Ledger newspaper. Its timeless Georgian style is complemented by striking neoclassical touches such as limestone detailing, while steel joists and concrete construction attest to an unquestionable level of quality. The breathtaking grounds offer gardens & lawn areas for play, along with a swimming pool and pool house (both added in 2007) with a kitchenette, bath and laundry faculty for entertaining convenience. The current owners have thoroughly enjoyed the setting for all occasions, whether hosting parties for 120, gatherings, or formal dinners in one of many private areas. No expense was spared in restoring this testament of architectural integrity to its original splendor. Upon entering you are instantly impressed by the caliber of elegance, voluminous ceilings and light-filled ambience. The main level welcomes you with a marble entrance hall. All major first-floor rooms were restored to their original design with modifications made to facilitate a contemporary lifestyle. A magnificent Yellen-designed white marble staircase with ironwork railing curves gracefully up to the completely new 2nd floor that beautifully adheres to period tradition, with early 20th-century details including wainscoting, door and window casings and quarter sawn white oak throughout, all custom milled. New BRs and baths include a blissful master suite. The lower level renovation retained the original form of the billiards and pub/card rooms. A 1,100-bottle wine cellar, au-pair suite, gym, home theater with surround sound and mudroom were added to optimize the allure.
