From the outside you’d think this 91-year-old Tutor never saw any fun. As is the case, amusements are two-fold in this renovated and expanded Main Line home (I so called it from the checkered B/W marble flooring in the reception hall).
To begin, the living room has a beamed ceiling and fireplace with tiled details. The dining room flaunts built-in custom cabinets, deep-silled windows, and hardwood flooring, which, incidentally, can also be found in the family room…
The family den has some of that old-world charm thanks to a stone wall and vaulted ceiling with exposed beams. It also has a wet bar with mini fridge. But, the kitchen might just have the coolest feature: a peek-a-boo window looking into the breakfast room.
Upstairs, the master suite is on the second floor, where perks include built-in closets, en suite luxury bathroom, and a door leading to the roof deck. A laundry room is on this floor too. The third floor has a recreation room with two cedar closets, while a second is on the lower level (that one has a bathroom and second laundry room).
