Zoë’s Opens Four More Suburban Philadelphia Locations

zoes kitchenZoë’s Kitchen — the Mediterranean-inspired chain restaurant where most of the food is grilled — already had three local spots (Collegeville, Marlton and Newtown) when it opened yet another outpost in the Greater Philadelphia market in May of this year in Bryn Mawr. That must have worked out because there are now four more to come: Malvern, Willow Grove, Cherry Hill and Wayne. It seems people like grilled food — especially when someone else is manning the grill.

French Design Meets Man Cave in Bryn Mawr

feat

The patterns in this French Chateau will knock your socks off. The formal spaces in the enormous, 10,000 square-foot-plus estate are covered in interchanging stripes, florals, paisleys, checks and toile. You  might say the right rugs are really what pull the space together.

More amazing than the eye that can combine so many patterns so well is that the downstairs level at the estate has been converted into an independently decorated space dedicated to drinking, playing video games and working out. The wet bar and arcade-style gym are clearly the where the owners get to let their hair down.

preteenroom

This $2 million estate in Bryn Mawr has much to recommend it: The main house has four bedrooms, each with an en suite bath, and on the 1.5 acres of land–lush with centennial plantings–there’s a pool and a guest house. But what’s certainly the highlight of the photo gallery is the wonderfully iconic example of The Preteen Bedroom. Somewhere, the non-twerking ghost of Hannah Montana is smiling.

SOLD: “Million Dollar Listing” Star Michael Lorber’s Main Line Crush House

house

Michael Lorber, onetime co-star of Bravo’s reality show Million Dollar Listing New York–and son of real estate magnate Howard Lorber–came to Philly last year to scope out real estate, perhaps thinking he might do better on the Main Line than in NYC. Rumor had it he was especially impressed by an eight-bedroom, almost 12,000-square-foot Walter K. Durham house in Bryn Mawr.

Now comes word that the house has sold for $4.6 million—a terrific price, and down just a skosh from the November 2012 asking price of $4.995 million. The buyer has not yet been named; could it be Lorber? Hey, Michael, give us a call.

New to Market: Larry Brown’s $7.85 Million Main Line Estate

IS1nutdsamvjm20000000000

It’s called Linden Hall. All grand estates belonging to great men must have a name, and Larry Brown, former coach of the 76ers, is a great man (Allen Iverson would agree). The seven-bedroom Colonial residence was expanded recently, and it’s now a rather capacious 11,000 square feet or so, thank you very much. Of course it has all that it should, being a luxury estate. But then, it also has some serious surprises.
