Gorgeous brick 5 bedroom, 7.2 bath Georgian, designed by Ann Capron. Stone pillared gated entry, circular drive & striking architecture. Expansive landscaped grounds. Soaring 2-story marble foyer, extensive custom moldings, wide arched openings, 6 fireplaces. As you can see in the photos, generously sized rooms highlighted by a phenomenal Hunt Room, Home Theater, and 3200 bottle wine cellar. You will not find many homes built like this one. A fortress. The concrete block walls include steel reinforcing rods. Exterior walls 2 by 6 rather than 2 by 4. The walls are sealed and have plastic vapor barrier. Double dry walls for sound reduction. 9'-12' ceilings for all 3 floors. 20' in Hunt Room. Special Oak floors in Garden Level to eliminate warping. 35 gallons per minute Campbell well, 260' deep with large holding tank. New roof 2019. Chubb conducted a 2020 appraisal and found that the home is actually 12,223 (rather than 11,444) and the cost to construct the home today using materials of like kind and quality would be $5,148,000. This doe snot include driveway, walks, and over $350,000 of gardens by award winning Gale Nurseries. Plus 5.4 acres in the heart of Willistown. If you tour the home, look for the craftsmanship that created the 4 layer custom moldings, the 12' coffered ceiling Sun Room where you will want to sit with your morning coffee any morning you can, the large pergola with climbing roses (with mood lighting) where you will want to sit or dine and view the rose and butterfly garden and watch hummingbirds and cardinals feed, the stone arch in the wine cellar, the 50' by 22' pool and the 6-8 person spa, the volleyball/badminton/croquet area, and the walk up floored attic (9') where 2000+ sq feet of living space could be added. While the top 2 floors are traditional and even semi-formal, the Garden Level is anything but. See the hidden entrance to the "speakeasy", the hand-etched mirrors and glass in the French Cafe, the safe within a safe, the hidden secondary entrance to the "ancient" wine cellar, large mirrored gym, a complete Garden Level kitchen, the 2 under counter wine coolers, the ice holding chest, the overhead brass glass rack, the Chicago professional sized antique Brunswick pool table (ask about Capone story) and the drink ledge around the room, the incredible antiques including the wall phone and phone booth (try them, they work), the 25' granite top bar with brass foot rail, the Sherle Wagner & Villeroy & Boch bathroom fixtures, the incredible antique New Jersey PO complete with BO Boxes with working combination locks, the 2 cleverly hidden work rooms, and the dining area for 4 within Roxy Theater. Near top public and private school, several parks and walking trails, and several country clubs. Walk to the field and Clubhouse of Radnor Hunt, yet just 25 minutes to the airport. The home now, that you seldom have to leave but when the virus is beaten, the home for entertaining 2 to 150 as has been done so many times in the past.
