Some people like to visit castles on European vacations. Others like to read about them or obsessively follow premium cable programming about them. Then there are people on the Main Line who live in them. This is one such estate.
The home combines the architectural design elements of the medieval era (lots of timbered arches, leaded windows, original stained glass and castle details) with the modern luxury one would expect from a Villanova estate. The immaculte eat-in kitchen is new and includes its own wood-fired oven. The first floor also features a renovated family room and recreation wing. Outside is a flat 3.4 acre lot that has been professionally designed and landscaped. The grounds include a reflecting pond with fountain as well as a pool and several flagstone patios.
Of course the estate also includes a separate carriage house with its own finished upstairs apartment. Because every estate worth its salt has separate guest quarters. The property also includes a separately deeded one-acre lot.
