Immerse yourself in historical elegance and luxury at this 8,000+ square foot masterpiece, originally part of the esteemed Armentrout Estate. Nestled within 106 acres of meticulously preserved woodlands and scenic trails, this 8 bedroom, 5 full and 2 half bath Italianate residence underwent a comprehensive restoration in 2009 by the current owners and renowned architect R. A. Hoffman, and was restored with impeccable attention to detail. The estate boasts an array of original features that exude grandeur and craftsmanship, including ornate moldings, multiple marble fireplaces, hand-carved woodwork, and exquisite millwork. An impressive wrap-around porch provides relaxing spaces in which to enjoy the views, punctuated by birdsong. The grandeur continues inside, where the original double front doors open into a stately center hall, flanked by a grand yet comfortable space designed for both entertaining and refined living. Spectacular floor-to-ceiling Jefferson windows bathe the interiors in natural light, enhancing the breathtaking vistas of the estate. To the left, the formal living room with fireplace seamlessly connects through pocket doors to the elegant dining room, adorned with pretty corner built-ins and access to the large wrap-around porch. The expansive gourmet kitchen is a culinary enthusiast's dream, featuring bespoke cabinetry, large marble island, professional-grade 6-burner Wolf stove with double ovens, Sub-Zero refrigerator, and a well-appointed butler's pantry that includes a rear staircase, powder room, and a versatile mudroom/family entrance. The residence also hosts a delightful wet bar area set against an exposed stone wall, offering direct access to the outdoors. The upper floors are equally impressive, with the primary suite showcasing another marble fireplace and oversized windows that flood the space with light. The luxurious white marble bathroom is complete with a fireplace, soaking tub, walk-in shower, double vanity, and a custom-designed walk-in closet with extensive shelving and storage solutions. Additional bedroom suites and a laundry room with ample storage complete the second floor. Four more bedrooms, a family room with vaulted ceilings, exposed beams and stone walls, and a sunlit office overlooking the grounds and pool, finish off the third floor. The third floor houses more bedrooms, additional storage areas, and a cedar closet. Descend to the basement to discover a spectacular Italian villa-inspired wine cellar and tasting rooms, featuring slate floors, brick arches, and stone walls-perfect for hosting wine tastings and intimate dinner parties. A climate-controlled wine storage room ensures the preservation of valuable collections, and a spacious room with a wet bar, dishwasher, and beverage fridge offers ample space for hosting. The estate's grounds are a sanctuary, featuring multiple gardens, mature trees, an historic icehouse, picturesque stone walls, sitting areas, and a tranquil pool with bluestone patio and pool house. Surrounded by the Camp Woods and Armentrout Preserves, the estate offers easy access to major roads, vibrant shopping and dining, Wings Field, and the train station, ensuring a convenient commute to Center City Philadelphia or New York City. This property is not just a home, but a legacy of luxury and history ready to be cherished by its new stewards.
