We remember when our love affair with this home began. We drove down a bucolic, private lane and into the circular driveway and were greeted by the most wonderful front porch one has ever seen. A swing and rocking chair were at one end and a conversation area with a round table and chairs was at the other end. The view, the privacy, and the tranquility of the setting were mesmerizing. It was love at first sight! Once inside this 5 bedroom, 5.2 bath home we fell even deeper in love. If you like everyday privacy and a home in which you can entertain, then this home is for you. Not only does this custom Manor Home perched beautifully on 1.2 well-manicured acres in Blue Bell offer privacy, but you'll also be pleasantly surprised by the convenience the location offers. Let's step inside and view the well over $350K in improvements the sellers have made over their years of ownership and enjoyment. The recessed stairs in this home create a large foyer entrance flanked by a formal living room and dining room. You better bring your shades because you'll be instantly struck and impressed by the gleaming hardwood floors, recently refreshed paint, wainscoting, and custom millwork. The dramatic light-filled, two-story family room showcases a gorgeous fireplace with a wood mantle, fresh and neutral paint, and palladium windows. The adjacent breakfast room and spacious chef-inspired kitchen feature a gorgeous wood-topped center-island with extra seating, a Sub-Zero refrigerator, Viking Gas Range with 6 burners, a griddle/grill, and 2 ovens, a pot filler, a gorgeous backsplash, granite-topped countertops, and endless storage. The 12 x 12 breakfast room offers quick access to the patio, lush, level yard, and firepit area. Do you work from home? You'll have no trouble working in the handsome study featuring custom built shelves and views of the private, rear yard. The mudroom can be conveniently accessed from a separate, side entrance or the garage and showcases ample storage, cubbies, a sink, and a closet. Ascend to the second floor by either the front or back stairs. It is there that you'll find the master bedroom suite with sitting room, and dressing area featuring a vanity and an impressive, large walk-in closet. The spa-like master bathroom features a dual sink vanity, soaking tub, and stall shower. Three additional bedrooms are also found on this level: an en-suite with bath, and two well-appointed bedrooms with a shared bathroom. A laundry room completes this level of the home. The finished third floor offers endless possibilities as an au-pair or in-law suite, playroom, teenage retreat, or 5th bedroom with private bath. The fully finished expansive lower level may be our favorite of all. It is light-filled and features a jaw-dropping 1000 bottle, temperature-controlled, cedar wine room, a sauna, a home theater, a gym, and a custom bar with a sitting and game area with sliders leading to the back patio area. Top-Ranked Wissahickon Schools, access to the beautiful Whitpain Township area parks, trails, shopping, restaurants, and proximity to rail, Route 309, PA Turnpike, I-76, and I-476 should put this home at the top of your buyer's list!
