    Description

    An important European manor home constructed for the Bright Family just after the turn of the century offers glimpses of the home's rich history through remarkable interior detailing, including expansive leaded glass windows, impressive millwork and seven fireplaces with Mercer tile surrounds and carved mantles found on the homes three finished levels. While the formal rooms exude a refinement and elegance with deep base board moldings and ten-foot ceilings, the informal areas are equally impressive. Expanded and renovated with respect for the home's character and original elements, find a Chef's Kitchen and adjacent outfitted Butler's Pantry styled to exceed the demands of today's family with Sub-Zero refrigeration and freezing, six burner plus griddle commercial quality gas oven and cooktop, two dishwashers and an "in kitchen" pizza oven. Generous stone topped prep and seated island area allow for effortless event preparation and everyday use. Unusual for a home of this era, the large, adjacent family room adds warmth and focus with a wood burning fireplace and three exposures of light with French door access to the rear and side yards. A carved newel post and wide front stair lead to the second floor. The spacious Master suite offers two exposures of light, angled fireplace and features an exceptional updated marble bath with double wash-stand height vanities, deep shower, under window tub and large walk-in outfitted closet. Three additional large family bedrooms, each with en-suite baths and unique architectural detail are found on the second level. Once purposed as a third floor gaming room, as evident by the cards suits on the fireplace surround, now presents as a beautiful bedroom with recently updated bath, large closet, charming dormered ceiling and original pine floors. An additional western facing bedroom, servant's accommodations, rear stairs and an elevator, now disabled, complete this floor. Walking distance to Bryn Mawr train station. The flat rear yard with gardens were photographed in the early 19th century and are now archived in the library of congress! Truly a landmark property.
