    Introducing Hopeland Manor! This classic 1912 Colonial Revival estate was designed by Horace Trumbauer for Sidney Tyler, who made his fortunes in the banking industry and is most notable for his children! His son, George Tyler married Stella Elkins (grand-daughter of William Lukens Elkins), the traction car magnate. George & Stella hired Trumbauer to design their primary residence on the grounds of the Elkins estate (Georgian Terrace) that was gifted to Temple University in 1939 to create the Tyler School of Art. Mr. Tyler's daughter, Charlotte Hope Binney married Robert L. Montgomery who was the founder of Janney Montgomery Scott and most famous for the 800 acre estate in Radnor Township called Ardrossan (also designed by Trumbauer). Mr. Tyler constructed Hopeland Manor as a summer cottage to be near his son & daughter-in-law who lived next door on the Elkins estate. Completely & thoroughly restored by the current owners over the past 16 years, every system in the residence has been updated & upgraded while respecting the amazing details of the original design. A few of the hidden enhancements includes a complete re-wiring of the house, upgraded to 600 AMP service. The entire house was completely re-plumbed and all bathrooms were renovated. The main gas line into the house was replaced with a high-velocity line to ensure ample supply for the 6 gas fireplaces, 5 new HVA/C systems, 3 H/W heaters, the pool heater, all the various cooking appliances & 2 BBQ lines. All cabling & wires were re-routed to the house underground including the electrical main, CAT-5 cabling, cable & telephone. Some of the visible enhancements include the addition of a 62' heated sunroom across the entire rear of the main floor that connects the dining, family & living rooms. This single room has 4 separate radiant floor zones. The renovated kitchen is amazing with four distinct rooms. The butler's pantry incorporates 2 beverage fridges, a warming drawer, 2 freezer drawers and a dishwasher. The primary kitchen has a 6-burner Viking gas cooktop, 2 Fisher & Paykel dishwasher drawers, a SubZero side by side 48' fridge, a convection microwave, a Miele steam oven and the most unique double island. The chef's pantry has 2 Miele wall ovens, a heated towel rack & an abundance of additional storage cabinets. The breakfast room has 1 original cabinet & a perfectly recreated, matching 2nd cabinet that was crafted from parts of the original butler's pantry. The call buttons remain on the wall as a reminder of when this house still had full time staff. One (of 3) of the powder rooms is located just inside the rear porch. I wanted to highlight just a few more of the amazing elements, from the beautiful built-in bookcases in the library to the floating staircase to the massive walk-in fireplace & original structural beams in the living room. All of the 6 bedrooms and 4 full bathrooms are located on the 2nd floor. Four of the bedrooms have functioning fireplaces (3 gas, 1 electric). The Owner's suite has 3 walk-in closets (one lined in cedar) and an en-suite bath with a large corner shower, 2 vanities, 2 heated towel racks and a robe warming drawer! Connected to the primary bedroom is the 2nd bedroom that is currently used as a spacious office with a wall of built-ins, another walk-in closet and a private en-suite bath. The 3rd & 4th bedrooms share the 3rd hall bath. There is even a walk-in linen closet in the main hall. Down the side hall, the final 2 bedrooms are quite large and share a hall bath while the upstairs washer & dryer is tucked into the former mop closet. The 3rd floor was completely finished & conditioned (was previously just storage) which provides 3 distinct rooms that would make a great upstairs family room and office. A wine cellar & workshop and the original laundry are in the full basement. The detached 2+ car carriage house previously had a fully functioning apartment above.
