Property Description

North Haverford treasure. Gracious stone estate perched on 1.5 lush acres on highly sought after Cheswold Lane. Idyllic neighborhood street in short walking distance to Merion Cricket Club, Haverford Town center, Haverford train station, shops, restaurants and the Haverford College Nature trail. A rare flat open yard is made utterly private by surrounding mature trees and finished with an elegant heated pool, positioned on the edge of a hilltop, overlooking the private wooded setting. Finished with slate roof and wrapped with flagstone patio and covered stone porches, this home offers wonderful opportunities for indoor/outdoor living. Large oversized windows embrace the pristine setting and bring glorious light throughout the home. Inside the timeless architectural detail, molding and fine materials have been elevated to modern day standards. A step down living room with soaring ceiling height is finished with fireplace, custom built-ins, oversized deep-silled windows and doors to the covered porch. The formal dining room with another bay window and beautiful molding also steps out to the covered porch. A large updated kitchen with center island overlooks the private backyard and is finished with a charming breakfast nook with beautiful french doors to the front terrace. The kitchen opens to a cozy den with fireplace and custom builtins. Upstairs, the primary suite walks out onto a large balcony overlooking the grounds and is finished with a sizable primary bathroom with tile shower, soaking tub and double vanity. A charming office overlooks the front yard and could incorporate nicely into the primary should one desire. This home boasts a very practical second floor floor plan with all five bedrooms and a laundry suite on the second floor. Step down the hallway from the primary and the first two additional bedrooms are sizable with large ensuite baths. Further down the hall two smaller bedrooms share a hall bath and can be closed off to form a private suite. A generous laundry room completes this floor. A large finished basement adds any needed extra living space including a large recreation room with fireplace, full bathroom, games room and space enough for a gym. Attached three car garage. Commuter's dream, convenient to major roadways for easy access to Center City, Philadelphia Airport, NYC and beyond. Also walkable or very short drive to Ardmore town center for trains to NYC or shopping at Suburban Square. Award winning Lower Merion School District.
