Once in a great while, a magnificent property like this, comes on the market. A very special residence with one of Montgomery Counties most coveted addresses sits this magnificently private home on 14+ acres of land, adorned with mature trees, award winning perennial gardens and woodlands. Set back a long tree-lined drive it is ideally positioned to take advantage of the breath taking views and natural features the property has to offer. Designed as a replica of Mount Pleasant in Philadelphia's Fairmount park, it showcases classic Georgian colonial design with Palladian windows, detailed pediments and pilasters on both its front and rear facades. Its interior is stunning in its architectural detail, yet it manages to serve as a comfortable, livable home with manageable scale, flowing and fully updated finishes and amenities. The home has been thoughfully and carefully renovated. Its main entrance hall has front to rear glass doors showcasing the grounds. To the right is a formal dining room with corner fireplace and a cozy study; both are full of natural light with outstanding millwork and moldings. To the left is the main stairwell, a formal powder room and a family/living room lined in built-ins designed to perfectly fit the room's original millwork. A sizable updated modern cherry kitchen with marble quartz counters, large breakfast area and fireplace completes the first floor. Private quarters include a large main bedroom suite with fireplace, balcony, walk-in closet and custom, updated bath and four additional bedrooms and two additional baths. As a bonus, the lower level is above ground and finished as recreation space. For three season entertaining, the rear flagstone terrace spans the the width of the back of the house, shaded by mature trees, and lush lawn flanked by award winning perennial gardens beckon. Just beyond is a seventy-five foot heated lap pool served by a cabana with full bath, sauna and fitness studio. Elsewhere on the grounds is an attached 3 car garage, an additional detached one car garage and potting shed and a pony stable add to the array of recreational activities that the young?and the young at heart?can pursue here. The property is under a conservation easement protecting the rare natural resources and allowing for EXTREMELY LOW property taxes. A rare opportunity to acquire a legacy property. Minutes to Germantown Academy, Blue Rte, and PA Turnpike.
