Following the tradition of a classic English manor house, this Herkness built stone Colonial sits atop an impressive 1.10 acres in prestigious Rydal. Graciously built with the quality architectural details and materials that have allowed these homes to endure since the early 1900's, this grand home has been restored and updated by the current owners. The characteristic impressive center hall and staircase set the stage for a spacious home that feels remarkably manageable and cozy. The large living room is anchored by a wood burning fireplace, deep window sills, high ceilings and French doors to the enclosed sun-porch spanning the width of the house. The sun-porch brings the outdoors inside with incredible windows, light and views of the back yard. This sun-porch is large enough to house a family room, gaming room and more. The gourmet kitchen was just updated with fresh paint, granite counters, stainless appliances and new lighting. Covered side entrance leads directly to the two car garage for easy access. Enjoy the convenience of a pantry and walk-in laundry room directly off the kitchen. An entertainer's dream with all central 1st floor rooms open to the center hall and rear sun-porch. Head up the staircase to the 2nd floor that was redesigned for today's Buyer. The master suite is spectacular with addition of a walk-in custom closet and remodeled master bath with soaking tub, walk-in shower and radiant floor heat. The second floor has three additional spacious bedrooms. The 2nd & 3rd floor hall baths were completely restored with new fixtures and tile work. Head down to the remodeled basement with custom in-home theater, Mahogany bar and work-out room. There is a 'rough-in' for the addition of a basement bathroom and bar sink. Backyard flagstone patio is covered with a pergola for 3 season outdoor entertaining. A/C on all three floors. Seconds to the Rydal train station, Whole foods, Trader Joes & Abington Hospital. The circular driveway eases access to Washington Lane. The impressive back yard and majority of the acreage faces Lindsay Lane...Do not miss this beautifully appointed great family home and superb value!
