About 1380 GILBERT ROAD
For a breathtaking, magazine-worthy residence, look no further than this nearly 5,000-square-foot Meadowbrook home. From its manicured 1.3-acre grounds with Koi ponds, specimen trees and shrubs, outdoor fireplace and private spaces for entertaining and relaxation, to its exquisite interiors, this c. 1927, stone and shingle, center-hall Colonial designed by architect Wayne Herkness is a stunner. The homeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s best features have been preserved and renewed with great respect for the original plan. Gorgeous hardwood floors, extensive millwork and moldings, bay windows, French doors and fireplaces galore create a timeless backdrop for both modern and traditional furnishings. A formal living room connects to a gracious family room with a wet bar and lined in arched windows. French doors open to a veranda that overlooks a formal lawn just waiting for a game of croquet. The kitchen is finished in all neutral tones and has radiant-heated floors, Wolf and Sub-Zero appliances, a wet bar with wine chiller (full wine cellar is on the lower level) and an island with bar seating. Adjacent is a very sunny breakfast room with a wall of French doors that open to a large patio that is totally fine-tuned for outdoor dining, grilling and chillaxing. For more formal entertaining, the dining room handles a crowd comfortably and has a fireplace and bay window. The main level also has a wood-paneled study, perfect as a home office or library. Private quarters are on the second and third floors, accessible via a main and rear staircase. On the second level, the sumptuous main bedroom suite features a private balcony, cathedral ceiling, gas fireplace, radiant-heated floors and a bath with furniture-finish double vanity, jetted soaking tub and oversized stall shower with handheld and rainfall shower heads plus body sprays. A generous sized walk-in closet with custom organizers completes the ownerÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s quarters. There are two additional bedrooms, each with plenty of closet space and natural light, plus an updated Jack & Jill bath. A smaller room can serve as a den/study area or even gaming/media space. On the third floor are the fourth and fifth bedrooms, each expansive, and hall bath that is updated but also has a clawfoot tub because, well, there simply is no better soaker. Mechanically, the systems in the home include multiple zones of air conditioning, efficient heating system, updated plumbing and electric, an irrigation system and exterior lighting. Walkable to the train station yet a world of its own with such beautiful grounds, this is one of MeadowbrookÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s best offerings. Seller is a PA Licensed Realtor.
