    Description

    Meadow Farm, the storied 1922 estate in Lower Gwynedd is surrounded by 48 acres of protected land and consists of three magnificent homes. One of these homes is now available. The long, tree-lined, lantern-lit entrance lane leads to this all stone remarkable home. There is 5722 sq ft of living space with 5 bedrooms, 4 full baths, and 3 half baths. It sits on 2.1 acres of rolling terrain. It is a masterpiece. As you enter through the oversize front door you are immediately struck by the elegance of the marble foyer which gives way to an architecturally acclaimed floating staircase. Through the hall you can see through one of many French doors that offer beautiful glimpses of the property. Off the foyer is a large formal living room with an oversized original basket weave brick fireplace, hardwood floors, original plaster crown moldings, & double French doors leading to a large flagstone patio. Opposite the living room is the grand dining room which also has an oversized marble fireplace & French windows with deep sills. The large and recently renovated gourmet kitchen features a 4~ long country sink, 2 built-in Thermador refrigerators, separate Thermador freezer, Viking ice maker, wine cooler, double Viking ovens & range, warming drawer, trash masher & custom cabinetry. A granite island houses a microwave drawer. The breakfast dining area features a corner gas fireplace and large, shuttered wraparound windows overlooking a pond & patios. As you step down into the family room, enter into a large, fully stone walled room which features a wooden, cathedral beamed ceiling, a huge woodburning fireplace, hardwood floors, & a long granite bar that sits atop ample custom cabinets. There are large windows through which you can see the beautiful yard, original springhouse, pool, putting green and fantastic nightly sunsets. A home office is off the family room and serves as a cozy library and houses the Sonos sound system. Sunlight streams through the window which overlooks a private courtyard for an amazing work from home space. Two powder rooms complete this floor. The upstairs consists of multi level bedroom suites. The master suite boasts a wood burning fireplace, dressing room with lighted tray ceiling leading to a marble bathroom with double sink vanity, large steam shower, soaking tub, & heated towel rack. The other bedrooms are all remarkable with deep window sills, period moldings, built ins, and window seats. The finished basement has a wine cellar, powder room, & exercise room. There is an oversized, 3 car detached garage with stairs to a second floor. Throughout the house on many of the doors and windows is original refurbished brass and gold-plated hardware. The outdoor space at this lovely home is truly amazing! Enjoy the gorgeous views while dining outdoors with two separate in-ground gas hookups for a grille. The stone surrounding the enormous pool deck continues down curved steps to a private tennis court which is partially enclosed by stone walls. The rolling landscape includes eight raised beds from which to gather fresh flowers & home-grown produce. The pond is beautiful & requires no maintenance. The location of this home is ideal. You are minutes from supermarkets, specialty shops, local restaurants, & cultural activities. This home sits within the top rated Wissahickon school district. There is easy access to the PA turnpike, blue route, Rt 309, Wing~s Field airport , & within walking distance from the train. Meadow Farm was originally built by Albert L. Smith of the Smith Barney investment firm. It was then conveyed to the Lippincott family of publishing fame, who published The Story of the Trapp Family Singers which inspired the beloved Sound of Music. It is said that Maria Von Trapp stayed at this home during the writing of her story. It has the feel of a historic country manor with all the modern conveniences. It truly blends the past with the present. Don~t miss the chance to own a spectacular piece of history.
