70 BARR ROAD
This stunning French colonial home sits quietly on 4+ acres of beautiful blooming gardens in the esteemed Radnor Hunt community. A walled entrance leads to this peaceful and private retreat with sweeping lawns, custom-designed landscaping with gorgeous perennial beds, magnificent rose beds, an expansive flagstone patio, a fenced-in flat backyard with a rock garden and gazebo and a large koi pond with a waterfall; complete with a pump house. This is a home where you can sit and watch the seasons change, immersed in peace, with multiple fireplaces to warm you on cold nights. Or you can host dinner parties and holidays on a small or large scale in the many different areas of the home. A circular driveway and brick stairs lead you to a sun-soaked two-story foyer, flanked by a formal living room and dining room. The living room features tall windows and an elegant fireplace, while the dining room invites in all the natural light and lush front views of the estate. Continuing through the house there is a handsome study/office complete with cherry bookcases, a fireplace and a wet bar, followed by a centralized step-down, 2-story great room featuring a magnificent stone fireplace, vaulted ceilings, skylights, and breathtaking views of the backyard gardens.
