You come to expect a certain level of amenities at the $1 million-plus price point. The gourmet kitchen is standard, of course. As is the lush landscaping and pool. The master suite will always be magnificent. But then there is this kaleidoscopic Chester Springs gem.
The home was built in 2001, when artisans from around the country were hired to craft the metal- and woodwork throughout the home. The living room features 30-foot ceilings, which have obviously made for excellent opportunities to show off an art collection. There are two – two – gourmet kitchens and radiant heated floors. The master suite (one of five bedrooms) includes a bath with hand-crafted tile work and a shower with steam and “rain forest spray” settings. The estate sits on a nearly nine-acre lot which includes a private crab apple grove and a passel of river birch trees. Out back, the house transforms into an entertainment dream with an infinity pool adjoined by a cabana-like outdoor living room.
At first a 3,500-bottle capacity wine cellar might seem a bit excessive. But compared with the rest of this sprawling Chester Springs estate, the cellar seems like it might be the most pedestrian detail.
