    Description

    Virtual tours are available! No in-person tours until the shelter in place order is lifted. Please contact the Listing Agent for more details. Grandness exudes from this palatial Main Line Georgian estate nestled on 5.8 magnificent lush acres in exclusive Northside Bryn Mawr. A private pillared entry culminating with a circular drive reveals an impeccably conceived brick Colonial built in 1929 by renowned Philadelphia architect Bunting & Shrigley. The iconic ~In Fields~ boasts a breathtaking setting with stunning hardscaping & landscaping, and thoughtful renovations made to the magazine-quality interiors over the years. With 19 rooms, 9 beds & 14 baths, here awaits a sophisticated showplace for living & entertaining beyond compare. Splendid nature vistas are enjoyed from all vantage points of the home as well as from serene outdoor patios & the rear in-ground gunite pool oasis. A stately covered front entrance revels incredible architectural beauty pouring throughout the house. Meticulously-restored original & classic details including rich oak flooring, beautiful millwork, moldings, woodwork, ceiling beams, built-ins, 4 wood-burning fireplaces & other refined elements intermingle with high-end modern amenities & systems for the most discerning. Open archways & ceilings up to 11~ optimize of airiness, while generous oversized windows & glass French doors bathe gracious rooms in natural light. The consummate host is afforded the ultimate layout with a large formal living room, regal dining room that can accommodate a crowd, and premium chef~s kitchen with custom cabinetry & moldings, granite counters, center island, decorative backsplash, commercial-grade stainless steel appliances & a butler~s pantry. The sun-drenched breakfast room with vaulted ceiling opens to the outdoors and the comfortable family room for relaxing around the fire. Sip cocktails or read in the charming study and wood-clad cherry library with coffered ceiling & wall of built-ins. The sleeping quarters indulge you with a luxurious master suite featuring a sitting area plus his/her dressing rooms & spa baths. Also upstairs are 7 more en-suite bedrooms, a huge lodge-like media/billiards/game room with built-in entertainment center & full bar, gym, and 3rd floor vaulted bonus room/office/studio. Recreation continues on the amazing lower level complete with a media/multipurpose room & unique 19-seat art deco theater with Wethuge media, bar & kitchen and chic art deco powder room. A 3-car garage and superior location minutes from shopping, dining, the train, top schools, Center City & the airport heighten the allure of this rare one-of-a-kind jewel.
