    Description

    A Unique Opportunity - places like this don't come around often...This Georgian- Colonial style home is located close to the heart of Newtown Square and set upon 3.07 peaceful acres. A remarkable turn of the century home provides the convenience of nearby shopping, public transportation, public library, athletic fields, restaurants and corporate business parks. Yet, once you enter the long driveway off of Bishop Hollow Rd and turn into the front drive, the location transforms to a sprawling wooded and level lot abounding in privacy and charm. A circular drive sits affront an expansive full length front porch with 10 ft ceiling. Enter the home at the center of the Porch through an ornate, carved oak dutch door with cast iron hardware, door knocker and large window on the upper half of the door. Open to Center Hall Grandeur with a large open foyer, floor to ceiling brick with stone hearth fireplace and a beautiful oak, open 2 story staircase and handrail. Pine plank wood flooring below all current finishes on first and second floor. On the left, a living room featuring the 2nd of 4 unique masonry fireplaces. To the right, a formal dining room with 3rd stunning fireplace set at the corner of the room that features a leaded glass and oak hutch above the mantel plus a full wall of curved windows and custom oak settle bench below to match. The dining room and center hall include 6" chair rail that extends to foyer wainscoting and up the main staircase. Crown molding continues throughout the first and 2nd floors. From the dining room a 4 foot oak door has original double direction hinges that lead to the pantry with wood and glass built-ins and sunlit filled laundry room. Follow through the pantry to the kitchen containing a brick face wall in breakfast area and original walnut color cabinets with upper glass doors hutch area on opposite end. From the breakfast area there is a back exit to deck and stairs to unfinished basement. Off of the left side of center hall are 2 rooms - a den and a study with the 4th custom fireplace. To the back right near the kitchen is a separate stairway to 2nd and 3rd floor. As you ascend the main staircase to the 2nd floor, check out the expansive back yard and greenery through 3 separate large windows displaying a different view with each step. The 2nd floor hall has an extra high ceiling and large loft to enjoy the view. Custom cedar built-ins in adorn several areas of the hallways. The 2nd floor contains 4 bedrooms, and 2 full baths. Additionally, a family room and a small galley kitchen could easily serve as in-law or au pair suite. The 3rd floor attic space has been finished with another 3 bedrooms, full bath, kitchen, and a living area featuring skylights and a large picture window. An a/c heat pump was added to this floor in 2005-2006. This home needs renovation/updates and is being sold as-is.
