Longview Hill~ was featured in the 2015 edition of Traditional Home and the 2016 edition of Grow. It has been the subject of many horticultural publications and is registered in the Smithsonian Institute Archives of American Gardens. ~Longview Hill~ is a light filled, 5 bedroom 3.5 bath home that sits on a 2/3rd acre year-round garden consisting of four terraces of evergreens, specimen trees, shrubs and perennials that provide color in all four seasons. The tiled center hall leads to a newly updated family room to the left with recessed lighting, gleaming hardwoods, built-in bookshelves and new gas burning fireplace. Further down the hall is an updated powder room, pantry and laundry room, all with tile floors. The 2-car garage has custom built cabinetry and rubber tile floors. On the 2nd level you will find the kitchen, living room, dining room and sunroom. The living and dining rooms have hardwood floors, and the kitchen and sunroom have heated tiles. Recently updated kitchen has granite countertops, top appliances and cherry cabinets. The sunroom extends from the dining area and has a granite countertop seating area, floor-to-ceiling glass and a sliding glass door to outside patio. The 34' by 20' antique brick patio is a relaxing spot for outdoor dining, sits under a large Katsura shade tree. The patio is surrounded by the aroma of perennial flowers, a fountain and singing birds. The 3rd level of home has 4 bedrooms and 2 full baths, both of which are updated and have heated tiles. The entire 3rd level has hardwoods. There is a fourth level of the home with a large master suite with a spacious bedroom, hardwoods, and floor-to-ceiling glass sunroom overlooking the garden (currently used as an office). There is also a bath/dressing room with a custom his-and-her vanity with granite, and his/her closets loaded with storage. Enter the garden through black ornamental wrought iron gates on both sides of home. Landscape lighting is throughout the gardens, which mean the gardens are observed from the home and enjoyed day or night. The entire garden is also equipped with an irrigation system so you do not have to lift a finger during dry summer weeks, and is surrounded by deer fencing. Stonework defines each level and creates many separate garden rooms. The third terrace includes a small fish pond with waterfall and a cedar Japanese style teahouse. The third level was dubbed the ~croquet level~ because of the large grass area. The home was recently converted to natural gas, and a new central AC and high-efficiency tankless hot water system were both installed in 2019. Gulph Mills is conveniently accessible to Wayne, King of Prussia, Interstate Highways, and trains. It is also a short walk to a beautiful neighborhood park, basketball courts, lighted tennis courts, and two hiking trails. All in the lowest taxes in the state.
