Property Description for 1429 ASHBOURNE RD, ELKINS PARK PA 19027

Designed as Philadelphia real-estate magnate Joseph J. Greenberg's private residence, "Sylvan Edge" is the definition of old world elegance and charm. This extremely rare and elegant Georgian Revival Estate home is filled with ornate detailing and craftsmanship unavailable in today's modern estate homes. The current owner has revived this estate to its former glory and this profound labor of love must be seen to be appreciated. As you pass the high-gated entrance with a full cobblestone Belgian block driveway and walled courtyard, you enter a home that was designed for the most sophisticated and worldly owner. Enter through the gracious central entrance hall with marble floors, curved stairway and gallery connecting you to a grand formal living room and dining room, each with full-wall salon paneling, hand-carved marble fireplaces, French Empire style chandeliers, and 4 French doors boasting views of the pool and magnificent grounds. The fabulous gourmet kitchen features new cabinets and appliances, restored original range hood over a Viking 8 burner range, new center island with white statuary quartz counter top, Italian farmhouse sink, new butcher block countertop in the butler's pantry and an adjacent breakfast room.

Five French doors open to the pool and outdoor dining areas with relaxing views of the pond and grounds. This masterpiece of design was made for entertaining and parties in all four seasons!
