This magnificent brick home, with its distinctive Georgian architecture designed by Ann Capron, welcomes the visitor with its circular drive, gated entry, and beautifully landscaped, 5.4-acre grounds in the heart of Willistown. With 5 bedrooms, 7 full and 2 partial baths, and 6 fireplaces, the fortress-like features include concrete walls and double dry walls for sound reduction, 9- to 12-foot ceilings throughout, and oak floors on the Garden Level. The stunning Hunt Room, private home theater, gorgeous outdoor pool, and 3,200-bottle wine cellar are just a few of its overflowing amenities. With more than 12,000 square footage and building materials that in todays dollars would exceed $5 million, 853 Providence Road is truly one of a kind. A soaring, two-story foyer welcomes you into expansive living spaces with graceful touches including 4-layer custom moldings, arched doorways, and beautiful fireplaces. The first level features a formal living room and dining room, chefs quality kitchen with an adjoining morning room, sunroom with 12-foot coffered ceilings for enjoying morning coffee, and a truly unique hunt room with 20-foot beamed ceilings. The first floor also has a main suite with library/large home office, two lovely powder rooms, and spacious laundry/mud room. On the second level, there is an in-law/guest suite above the garage, as well as a unique loft, three generously sized bedrooms, each with their own en-suite bath. A walk-up, floored attic provides an additional 2,000+ square feet, convertible to living space. With two floors of formal, traditional rooms, the Garden Level offers true, eye-catching flair, with oak flooring, hand-etched mirrors and glass in the French-style café, and hidden second entrance to the ancient wine cellar. This level has a second full kitchen for easy entertaining (the level leads directly to the patio and pool). You will find a billiards room, complete with Chicago, professional-sized antique pool table, a 25-foot granite-top bar with brass foot rail, and a host of special antiques, including a phone booth with working phone and a New Jersey Post Office counter (the post office boxes have working combinations). The Roxy home cinema seats 12 in its plush-red seats. A private mirrored gym encourages a healthy lifestyle, even with such lavish attractions! With matching changing rooms and baths (with Sherle Wagner and Villeroy & Boch fixtures), the Garden Level leads to the incredible exterior, with its 50 x 22-foot pool (and attached spa accommodating 6-8), beautiful brick patios with landscaping designed by the award-winning Gale Nurseries, and dedicated volleyball/badminton/croquet area. A beautiful pergola with climbing roses and mood lighting is the perfect location for viewing the rose and butterfly garden; sit and dine here and watch the cardinals and hummingbirds on lazy summer evenings. The gorgeous landscaping makes this a perfect home for large gatherings or intimate cocktail parties by the pool—in the past, this home has welcomed from 2 to 150; with recent, positive developments, now is the perfect time for family and friends to gather. This is a unique chance to own a peerless home in Radnor Hunts beautiful countryside. While the property itself is so special and has the feel of a gracious estate, it is also close to top schools, several parks and walking trails, golf courses and country clubs, and downtown Malvern with its library, boutique shops, restaurants, and train station with easy access to Center City. For those rare times you may want to get away, you can get to the airport in just 25 minutes.
