Live in a piece of history, a work of art and craftsmanship, on Philadelphia’s Main Line in the Estate section of Devon. Breathtaking 6-7 BD, 4.5 BA stone and clapboard Victorian. A lush lawn with perennial gardens on a flat acre with a wrap-around front porch simply invites you in. The original charm has been restored, while modern touches and all the mechanicals have been updated throughout. New electrical, recessed lights with dimmer switches and gas logs in three of the five fireplaces. The floor plan accommodates gracious entertaining, spaces for home-school and work, and for casual family living. Enter the home from the front or the back through beautiful dutch doors into a spacious foyer with dramatic high ceilings and a welcoming stone fireplace. The original heart-pine flooring is found throughout most of the home. Walking through the main floor, where natural light flows from oversized original windows with true wooden divides, there is a lovely living room and another impressive fireplace with gas logs. Also included on the main floor, is a handsome office/den with hardwood millwork, built-in shelving and a stone fireplace. Pocket doors encase the formal dining room sized for entertaining with a wood-burning fireplace. Next, you will find the spacious kitchen, which boasts the original larger-than-life built-in hutch. The kitchen also features modern cabinetry and a large center island with prep sink and seating. Stainless steel appliances include a six burner Wolf gas cooktop with a pot-filler, double Wolf electric wall ovens, Wolf warming drawer, and Subzero refrigerator. Adjoining the kitchen is a large family room with vaulted ceilings, exposed brick, contrasting dark floors, a full wet bar with a wine/beverage refrigerator and ice maker, plus double French doors leading to the deck. A set of back stairs goes from the kitchen to the 2nd floor laundry room and hallway. The winding, grand staircase leads to the second floor where there are 3 spacious bedrooms with the same heart-pine flooring carried throughout. This includes the main suite, which features large windows drawing in natural light, a cozy fireplace and a 7x13 walk-in outfitted closet. The main suite also has a new elegant ensuite bathroom with a large shower, separate soaking tub and a double vanity. There is an additional full bath for the other 2 bedrooms to complete the second floor. Uncharacteristic of an historic home, closets have been added and enlarged. The third floor includes 3-4 additional spacious bedrooms, one ensuite with a shower/tub, while the others share a full bath with a vintage cast iron tub. The home has high-velocity central A/C on the 2nd and 3rd floors. There is also a Central Vacuum throughout with a kick plate in the kitchen for easy access. The full basement offers great potential. One acre flat lot allows room to add a garage and/or a pool. Beautifully maintained, period charm and a perfect lot are just some of the things that make this home so great. Low taxes and walking distance to local favorites like the historic Devon Horse Show, the Devon Train Station, Whole Foods and the restaurants of Devon Yard (Terrain, Anthropologie and Amis Trattoria). The town of Wayne, King of Prussia Mall, Trader Joes and Wegmans are within a few miles.
