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.

House Porn on the Main Line: Sprawling Six-Bedroom Manse for $3.9M

lca4f3144-m8o

This is a two-story house with finished basement, but from the outside it reads like a long, low ranch house. The house was built in the 1950s but has recently undergone a complete renovation.

The center hall has inlaid wood floors, and a chair rail separates the white woodwork from the peach-colored walls. The kitchen ceiling is wood-paneled with glossy paint that reflects light. The cabinets are cream-colored, and there’s an extra sink in the stone-topped center island. The first-floor master suite has two bathrooms, which sounds like a good investment in the long-term health of any relationship.

Most Unusual: Vintage Soda Fountain. Masks and Marilyn. Kings, Queens and Rooks. And One Sad Gorilla in Wayne

most-unusual-radnor

This extravagant three-bedroom house has a lot of the “unexpected,” as the listing puts it–but that’s primarily true of the decor rather than the inherent qualities of the home itself. From a bedroom with two different animal prints and contrasting floral patterns to a living room with an elephant painting and a large wooden giraffe statue, this is not a home that shies away from upended juxtapositions.

The freestanding bathtub looks like it came straight out of Waterworks, while another bathroom’s blurry sliding doors look like they were airlifted from Grandma’s row house. A Murano chandelier hangs in the entryway not far from a faux Warhol portrait of Marilyn Monroe. A candelabra in il vento.

Best of all, though, is the basement, which is fitted out to please the most curious child– or, perhaps, simply a curiously childish adult.

A River Runs Through It: Newly Listed $1M Wayne Property Traversed By Creek and Waterfall

wayne real estate

The listing calls this property magical, and to all appearances, for those who like it lush and green, that’s no overblown listings poetry. The entry path is surrounded by trees and the house itself is hidden by bushes. The land also has a manicured lawn, but best of all Julip Run Creek traverses the land, including the little waterfall pictured here. Imagine listening to the sound of that water after a stressful day (and perhaps after the commuter traffic); a balm to the senses, for sure.

For a quiet afternoon of reading, there’s a flagstone terrace and a deck off the master suite. And for evenings with guests, a pebble terrace with a fire pit will give kids special evenings of marshmallow toasting. The children’s rooms, by the way, are particularly lovely, so the house is well suited to family life.
