The thing we love most about this beautiful Glenside estate is that it has been restored to its 1830s heyday but there are still opportunities for new owners to personalize the property. With only four previous owners, the estate has retained original elements like pocket doors and pocket shutters as well as original pinewood flooring. While the property has been renovated meticulously, new owners will still have the chance to devise any use they like for two very cool spaces: a cupola and a restored barn.

The main living areas of the home include a library with the double whammy of built-in bookshleves and window seats. A formal living room features a fireplace with Mercer tile (you’ll also find that in the bathrooms and in one of the other three fireplaces). The kitchen has been fully renovated and includes radiant heat flooring, an eight-burner, two-oven Wolf stove, a Sub Zero refrigerator and a separate wine cooler. The first-floor dining room could accommodate more than 150 guests at a cocktail party.

A sun room porch entrance is just the tip of the iceberg of this Glenside home. Inside, the house has seen significant refurbishments: restored original woodwork in the grand foyer and former kitchen cabinets repurposed as book shelves in the study.

Other features of note include built-in bookshelves in the living room and a full bar/saloon area made entirely of wood in the finished basement. Upstairs, a claw-foot bathtub can be found in the marble-floored master bathroom.
