Magnificent Victorian Carriage House with over 3,600 interior square feet walking distance to train, schools and town. Crafted of stone and slate and set back on 1.89 park-like acres, this truly one-of-a-kind property is located in Philadelphia's historic Main Line and maintains much of its original architecture. Mature landscaping and lovely gardens surround the home, along with a large pond with arched bridge off the back patio, all creating the most idyllic and private environment. Enter the property via a long, private driveway and you are greeted with a wide front porch with impressive stone columns and two large pews to sit and enjoy the view. The home's first floor is quite expansive, with an open Living Room and Dining Room flooded with light from ceiling height doors and windows, and featuring gardens on all sides. On one end of this large space is the Kitchen, Mud Room, Laundry and Powder Room; at the other is a Den and/or playroom plus another incredible room with sunny views of the huge property that can be used as a home office with a private entrance. Also from this end of the home are back stairs with additional access to the upper level. Upstairs you will find a total of four bedrooms and two baths, one of which is the current Master Bedroom with access to both wings of the house. In addition to the existing 4 bedrooms, the original and unfinished 36x16' hayloft with pitched, beamed ceiling could be finished for a spectacular Master Bedroom with a cupola skylight (see rendering included in photos). This one of a kind home backs up to the green space of the Merion Tribute House, is located in the blue ribbon/nationally-ranked Lower Merion School District and it is just a 1 block walk to Merion Elementary or 1 block to the Septa Merion Station which is just a 15 minute ride to Center City. It is also a 10 minute walk on sidewalks to the quaint town of Narberth with all of its shops and restaurants. It is unusual to find such a private country-like retreat so close to town and walking distance to so many amenities. The potential of the property is extraordinary. This is truly a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for the buyer who demands a very special location, a unique home and has the vision to create a masterpiece for their lifestyle.
