    Description

    The best of both worlds! Beautifully restored English Tudor that has been updated for modern living while lovingly maintaining the character of the period. ~Red Bud Manor~ was given as a wedding gift to a member of the prominent Ashbridge family in 1899 and is said to be inspired by the Shakespeare Globe Theatre in Stratford-upon-Avon. A major renovation created a large gourmet kitchen area that features a radiant heated graphic cement tile floor, glass front storage, top of the line appliances and expansive eat-in kitchen area. The kitchen is anchored by a large marble island with a commercial Blue Star range, a separate prep area, as well as a massive reconfigured pantry area for storage. Other parts of the renovation included multiple bathrooms and a second-floor in-law/au pair suite with full kitchen. Two-200 Amp service panels were installed along with five-zoned forced air heating and air conditioning. The main level has 10+ foot ceilings, original quarter sawn oak paneling and millwork and an open flow to allow for large gatherings. The living room and dining areas can be closed off to provide privacy when desired. Each room features a fireplace as well as rich hardwood flooring. Upstairs, there are six bedrooms with original yellow pine flooring, and includes a live-in suite with a gourmet chef's kitchen and renovated bathroom. Walk out to a 4000 square foot deck that wraps around the length of the back of the house. Railings inspired by one of the custom designed exterior doors, built-in seating, and decking are constructed from Brazilian Ipe, a gold standard among decking materials. The deck overlooks a huge, tiered backyard that has raised planting beds, a potting shed, and perimeter plantings. Coupling that with the exquisite Flemish bond brick pattern of the home and copper gutters, it feels very much like the English countryside. A large unfinished basement with brick arches can accommodate a future wine cellar, and the enormous walk up open floor attic can be converted into another 1500 square feet of customized living space. A wealth of future possibilities exist. The home is well situated on the Main Line, within walking distance of the Rosemont Septa, Ashbridge Memorial Park and all that Bryn Mawr shopping and dining has to offer. This is truly a one of a kind estate home.
