This impeccably renovated and maintained estate home sits on a beautiful, quiet, sought after cul-de-sac street. This is truly a coveted prime Northside Lower Merion location making this home incomparable in every way. The original home was built in the Tudor Style circa 1935 by Frank Wilson, a prominent Main Line Builder known for his expertise in structural engineering, truly the glory days of home building. This home features fine craftsmanship, attention to detail, superior materials, exceptional scale, millwork and stonework very rarely seen in contemporary building trades. Peter Zimmerman Architects worked closely with the owners to renovate and substantially expand this home to accommodate a growing family while enhancing the past glory of this beautiful home. A delightful stream meanders across the front of the property, and the siting of this home allows for truly lovely views of the steam and the expansive grounds from many of the rooms. A long private drive brings you to an impressive entrance courtyard where you will notice that the addition in this section and courtyard were angled away from the main house to follow the path of the stream and create and expansive approach. The owner worked very closely with the architect to ensure preservation of the original details and integrate award winning details, materials, proportions and layout so finely that only a well-trained architectural historian can tell them apart. The clay roof tiles were custom made by Ludowici, the same company that manufactured the original tiles, to ensure a perfect match. The original steel windows were restored, and new ones were reproduced to match, while the extraordinary decorative brickwork and stonework, half timbering, wood and stone details inside and out make it nearly impossible to find the intersection between the original and new construction. The transition on the inside and out is seamless. Beech Road, Bryn Mawr is a truly coveted location enjoying a very quiet cul-de-sac but extremely convenient to Philadelphia, King of Prussia, Rt. 76, Rt. 476 and beyond. It is a very quick walk to Ashbridge Park for family play time, tennis or a workout, as well as a very easy walk to the train station. A leisurely stroll into Bryn Mawr allows you to enjoy the Film Institute, fantastic dinner options, shopping, the Bryn Mawr Farmers Market, Ludington Library, Mom's Market and yet return to your private oasis within minutes. This property offers a rare ownership opportunity in Bryn Mawr offering privacy but easy access to all the attractions, conveniences, and beauty of the Main Line. As you can see from these photos this home is glorious in any season!
