At the end of a private cul de sac is an 8682 square foot treasure. This gracious stone Colonial was designed by Lyman Perry of Nantucket and the Main Line and built by Mark Hallowell. The home was custom-built in 1991 for a family of six plus one set of in-laws and sited on the premier lot in Sydbury Glen. They chose Sydbury because of its privacy and proximity to schools, hospitals, shops, restaurants and transportation to both Center City & NYC. The two-story marble floored Entrance Hall draws you in to the impressive Living Room with nine and a half foot ceilings and oak floors. On the far wall there is a gas fireplace with a lovely slate surround and classic mantle piece. A wall of windows and French doors lead to a spacious outdoor deck with a view of the private fenced back yard and surrounding conservation area. It's a perfect spot for pre-dinner socializing with friends and family. The deck also showcases another set of French Doors, which lead into a grand Family Room. A gas fireplace also graces one wall with oversized windows allowing light to flood the room. Additionally, a small kitchen with cherry wood cabinets is available for snacks. No one needs to go far, or interrupt that heated game of pool or charades for something to eat! Across the foyer is an elegant Dining Room with French doors that accesses a small patio that overlooks the park-like setting with a custom-designed swimming pool. All first-floor doors have transom lights allowing natural light to fill every room throughout the year. In 2018, all of the more than 100 windows and French doors were replaced with Marvin Ultrix windows. The roof was replaced in 2017. The primary Kitchen space is divided into three areas all open to each other. Granite counters, rich cherry cabinets and newer commercial appliances create a work space to be coveted by both experienced and aspiring cooks. A cozy Family space for relaxation and a Breakfast area all combine to make it easy for a family to participate and share in the fun of mealtime. The Pantry, Powder Room, and large coat closet are steps away. The Back entry/Mud Room is perfectly located between the Kitchen and four car detached garage. A gracious main entrance is complemented by an additional front entrance providing direct access to a separate In-law Suite with a large bedroom and private bath. This area is close to the Family Room's petite kitchen and, as needed, may become a desirable first floor Guest Suite or private Home Office. A formal stairway in the front hall and an additional back stair lead to a full Second Floor. A luxurious Master retreat is composed of a Sleeping Room, Dressing Room and Sitting Area. Large windows, skylights, and a vaulted ceiling create the impression of living in a tree house and bring a Wow! from all who see it. Of course, a large Bathroom with skylight, double sinks, Jacuzzi, and Stall shower are essential parts of this Suite. Five additional large Bedrooms are served by three full Bathrooms along the second-floor hallway. Conveniently there is also a full Laundry Room and a large storage closet. Pull-down stairs access a full attic. Need more storage space? A full basement boasts a large finished room, a utility room and two unfinished rooms, one with a work bench and potential second laundry. The powder room could accommodate a tub or shower to convert to a full bathroom. These large lower level spaces provide ample room for a wine cellar, movie theater, workout studio or dry storage. Whatever you may choose to do, you will enjoy this most special home in its desirable & walkable neighborhood. Just like the current owners, you and your family will love living in Sydbury Glen.
