Property Description for 247 WINDING WAY, MERION STATION PA 19066

A Main Line rarity that breaks the mold of classic tradition, this indescribably beautiful French Normandy stone home in the prestigious Estate section of Merion Station was built in the 1920s & modeled after French provincial country manors. A dream home for the discerning, its magnificent presence on stunning landscaped grounds is distinguished by a touch of Tudor style & an impressive turret housing the 2-story entry foyer with a graceful winding staircase. Photographed in such prominent publications as Main Line Today, The Philadelphia Inquirer & Philadelphia Home, this French-inspired fantasy home with 5 BRs & 4.5 baths has been enhanced by its prominent interior designer-owner. Original features abound including Moravian pottery tiled floor by renowned Bucks County craftsman Henry Chapman Mercer, random-width hardwood peg floors, arched doorways & leaded stained glass windows throughout. The entertainer's living room takes your breath away with large bay windows with seating, a fireplace & French picket ceiling with wooden beams. Share meals in the dining room overlooking picturesque views, with a built-in wine cabinet with intricate iron grill door & fireplace adorned with carved wooden lions & scrollwork. Very special is the eat-in kitchen graced by white brick walls, cedar barn wood siding beams & cabinetry, a Dutch door, 2 sinks, generous counter & prep space. Intimate gatherings or movie watching can be enjoyed in the oak wood-paneled library/den with a stone fireplace & full bar that leads out to the patio & pool oasis. The main level also houses a sunny home office with patio doors & convenient powder room. Up the sculptural stairs awaits an arched doorway introducing 5 BRs & 4 full baths. The master retreat indulges with a sitting room, dressing room w/fireplace, walk-in closet & oak-paneled spa bathroom w/Jacuzzi. There is also a 2nd en-suite BR & the opportunity to section off 2 more BRs with full baths for au pair or in-law suite with private stairs to the kitchen. Enter the lower level via a door with a carved ship wheel into a spacious nautical-themed room. Many architecturally significant elements are showcased like the original architect's rendering of the ship room, original themed paintings by classical Pennsylvanian artist Maurice Molarsky integrated into the moldings, a wet bar, carved wood seating & fireplace. As idyllic is the location in the award-winning Lower Merion school district, near all amenities & Center City.
