Enjoy Bryn Mawr at its best in a quiet, premium location. Sprawling & grand, this is the most exceptional of any home in the Hermitage community. The elegant interior was custom built by the original owner & completely renovated by the current one. Among the enhancements is all new lighting, custom cabinetry & flooring, window filters to protect furnishings from sun damage, high-quality marble work, a custom master bath, inside access to the 2-car garage w/catering kitchen featuring a wine cooler & double Thermador wall ovens, 3-zone HVAC, tons of closet space & a backup generator powering part of the home. A lovely brick terrace & wraparound deck provide outdoor enjoyment. The grounds are lush with trees, plantings & generous lawn. The Reception Hall likens a fine hotel, graced by marble flooring w/decorative insets, a double domed up-lit ceiling, crown dentil moldings & architecturally-significant arched openings to the living & dining rooms. The expansive living room with a tray ceiling spills through sliding glass doors on 2 exposures to the wraparound deck for indoor-outdoor entertaining. Gather around the fireplace with a granite surround flanked by a custom display cabinet. The dining room provides a sophisticated backdrop w/a medallion tray ceiling, marble flooring, stately columns & 4 arched openings that maximize flow. Siding doors of glass open to the wonderful brick terrace. Seamless living continues with an open-concept kitchen/breakfast area/family room. Cherry floors, furniture-style cabinets, tumbled marble backsplash & granite counters complement a stainless steel Dacor 6-burner propane gas range w/hood, Sub-Zero refrigerator/freezer & Miele dishwasher. A huge center island w/seating is prime real estate for the cook & family, as is the adjacent breakfast area brightened by 3 greenhouse-type windows. Beyond sits a family room w/exposed stone accent wall & built-in entertainment center. A BR suite, now an office/den, offers built-ins, a workstation desk, full bath, closet & terrace doors. Stairs rise to BR suite 2, currently an exercise room w/2 skylights & full bath. A staircase & elevator transport you to the garden level that houses the master suite exclusively. A large BR behind double doors has a wall of windows & lass sliders to the pool area. Custom cabinetry, a gas fireplace, his/hers fitted walk-in closets & bathrooms plus a laundry room accommodate upscale living.
