This home has it all – but would we expect anything less from Villanova?

Sat in Harriton Farm, a development featuring 30 residences, this property has visual appeal both inside and out. Enter inside into what the listing agent refers to as the ‘Reception Hall’ (but we’d probably just call a foyer) and enjoy views of the formal living room to your right and dining room to your left. French doors in the living room lead into a library with built-in bookcases and a gas fireplace, and the dining room boasts a butler’s pantry with white cabinetry and a granite countertop.

The kitchen, breakfast room and family room area is our favorite. The trio blend elegance with coziness, and who doesn’t want that in the place they call home? Highlights of the kitchen include a center island, marble backsplash, a walk-in pantry, and stainless steel appliances. The breakfast room opens to the multi-tiered deck, which features a hot tub (woo!). The family room is a step down from the kitchen and features coffered ceilings and a floor-to-ceiling stone gas fireplace. A mudroom rounds out the main level and leads to a powder room, closet, and the three-car garage.

The second level is home to all five bedrooms, each of which is a decent size. The master suite has a double-door entrance, a praiseworthy dressing area with two walk-in closets, and a gorgeous bathroom with his and her vanities, heated floors, a Jacuzzi tub and a rain shower. Two of the other bedrooms also have bathrooms, and the remaining two bedrooms share a bathroom.

The basement is the perfect entertaining space for guests and boasts an exercise room, a game room, a wet bar, a billiards area, a home theater, a bonus room, and a powder room. Whew, we almost ran out of breath for a second.

If the description we just gave you isn’t clear enough as to how awesome this home is, check out the images below. This place is a vision and should not be taken for granted.

This home in Devon’s Arbordeau condominium community just misses the cutoff for our “First-Time Find” feature, but it’s definitely within reach of many buyers today, and you get a lot for your money here — including, if you wish, an opportunity to take a mid-1970s home with strong bones into the here and now.

Given that the kitchen and bathrooms in this home were recently updated, all that may be required is the right furniture, for this home’s stylish contemporary bones are solid. The living room has a handsome brick-arched fireplace and striking floating staircase as main design elements and is flooded with light from the sliding glass door that leads out onto the patio, one of two attached to this home. There are also two balconies on the upper level, giving it plenty of private outdoor space. Read more »

It’s no difficult task to imagine that a house with a full-width, five-columned, two-story front porch is going to be pretty impressive. But what makes this Bryn Mawr home a surprise is that this was the carriage house for a much larger estate. Built in 1915, this home is situated on 1.25 acres of land and boasts 5,000 square feet of interior space. And that’s just the start of its awesomeness.

Let’s begin with the main level. The open floor plan layout features all the rooms you would typically find in a house – a living room, family room, dining room, and kitchen. And then, there are some extras – a breakfast room, sunroom, playroom, guest bedroom, and laundry room. Read more »

This is certainly not your average home, folks. We’re starting to think that’s why we like it so much.

This contemporary-style residence presents typical household amenities in an atypical fashion. The main level is actually the upper level, and features a living room, dining room, expansive master bedroom suite (seriously, this thing is huge), and a powder room. The lower level features a large family room, three additional bedrooms, two bathrooms, an office, a laundry room, and room for storage.

Our favorite parts of the house are the variety of oversized windows throughout, particularly in the living room, which open the already airy space up even more and showcase the natural landscape outside. Can you imagine how relaxing it would be to watch Saturday morning cartoons next to a view like that? We can, and in our opinion, it would be pretty awesome.

The property’s exterior boasts a detached garage, a spacious driveway, several decks, and a sloped backyard with a wooden path down to a stream.

This quirky and cool home is ready for the right family to take it to the next level. Composed of more than 4,300 square feet and situated on nearly an acre of land, the potential is all there. Head down to Haverford and check out this Main Line marvel. We don’t think you’ll be disappointed.

This home’s got it all – a great location, gorgeous stone construction, a spacious backyard, and new interior updates.

Our favorite part is the charming front porch, which looks like it belongs on a movie set and would be a great spot to sit and read with a glass of wine in hand (are we getting ahead of ourselves?). From the front porch, enter into the center hall where you will be surrounded by both the living and dining rooms on either side. Beyond these rooms is a renovated kitchen and breakfast area. Read more »

Main Line Monday: A “Tree House” in Berwyn for $675K

One of the best parts about the Philadelphia suburbs is their ability to make you feel isolated from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, without actually being isolated from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Who doesn’t love to come home to a little peace and quiet at the end of the day?

Take this home in Berwyn, for example. Sat on a quiet cul-de-sac and surrounded by nature, it is the epitome of a secluded oasis.

A large, second-level deck envelops the front of the house, where homeowners can enjoy their morning coffee while listening to the sounds of the nearby creek. Read more »
