Property Description for 968 IDLEWILDE RD, GLADWYNE PA 19035

Stunning, classically styled French Manor home located on an exceptional 2.39 acre parcel on a cul de sac, offering unparalleled amenities including flat lawns, walled terraces, tennis court, pool and pool house outfitted with kitchen, bath and lounge area. Approach the home by a wide paver turning circle to a custom mahogany door. Beyond find a two story Foyer with sweeping staircase and forward views of the Great Room. Marked by soaring ceilings and full stone wall with gas burning fireplace this space radiates light from the over-sized windows and creates the open floor plan desired by today's buyers. Also recognizing the need for more intimate space the formal Living Room located to the left of Foyer is warmed by a gas burning fireplace and Southwestern exposure. The formal Dining Room enjoys the detail of a curved wall from the staircase behind and connects seamlessly to a Butler's Pantry, large walk-in shelved storage and the Kitchen. Outfitted with a tiered cooking and seated granite topped island the Kitchen opens to a wide walled stone terrace and magnificent low care perennial gardens and verdant lawns. High level appliances including two Dacor wall ovens, gas cooktop and side by side sub zero refrigeration and freezer creating a space which is as functional as it is attractive. A wide hall leads to a handsome Billiard Room/Office. With three walls of windows, a sophisticated sound system and the forethought to locate unattractive but needed printers in a nearby equipment room, this space offers all possibilities for both hard work and recreation. Completing the first level is a full Bath, large Laundry/Potting room with plentiful storage and outside exit. Appreciate the second level overlook after ascending the main stairs en route to a deluxe Master Bedroom. Generously proportioned with a tray ceiling the Master offers true end of day retreat with a Dressing Room, his and her outfitted closets, large Bath with under window jetted tub and separate water closet. Two bedrooms offering equal square footage with en-suite baths and large closets. Two additional bedrooms with central bath could also be purposed as a grand Guest Suite located just off the backstairs and adjacent to the home's elevator. Floored Attic provides superior primary storage or could be easily imagined as future finished space. Lower Level is finished with Bath, craft room, recreation area and large unfinished storage and mechanicals.
