This elegant stone historic home designed by Philadelphia architect Lewis Rust was built in 1925 for a professor of Romance Literature at Bryn Mawr College. After being lovingly maintained and updated by the same family for twenty five years it is now available to be enjoyed by another. A formal living room and dining room flank the foyer which features a graceful curved spindled staircase. Four sets of French doors in the living room open to the rear walled garden and a front columned veranda. The uniquely crafted pocket doors, moldings, raised paneled wainscoting, fireplace mantels, six sets of French doors with original hardware and richly grained plank flooring complement the gourmet island eat in kitchen with a window seat overlooking the walled garden and fountain. A new addition, open to the kitchen, houses a vaulted ceiling family room and a powder room. En' suite bedrooms feature ample closet space and window seat storage. The master suite includes a generous bedroom with a carved fireplace mantel and space for a sitting area. The spacious dressing room with fitted closets can accomodate a home office. Modern conveniences of zoned heating and air conditioning, new double pained windows and a detached two car garage with potting shed make this piece of Main Line history perfect for today's lifestyle.
