Opening Today: Tired Hands Fermentaria

tired-hands-fermentaria-hands

Tired Hands, but welcoming hands in Ardmore.

Today marks the official opening of Tired Hands Brewing Co.’s Fermentaria. Located just down the street from the original Tired Hands brew cafe, the new space will immediately more than double Tired Hands brewing capacity, with future expansion room allowing for around seven times the volume. The Fermentaria also means more room for patrons looking for a beer, a bite, and a growler fill to go. The new spot at 35 Cricket Terrace has room for 180 seated.

Tired Hands Fermentaria also has its own menu featuring tacos, ceviches and bigger plates. Chef Bill Braun, who is also the head guy at the brew cafe is in charge here as well, though with the help of Kyle Yates. Highlights of the menu, which is taco focused but not necessarily Mexican, include:

  • brisket taco with Swiss cheese, caraway slaw, pickled mustard, 
 tarragon crema
  • patatas bravas taco with chorizo-style bulgar, goat cheese, salsa rojo

Set on a single acre property near Radnor Township, this Semerjian Builders-crafted home is marked with several notable features, the first of which we must mention is the two-story center hall. It’s a gorgeous room, boasting a wood barrel coffer ceiling, Herringbone floors made of Brazilian Cherry wood and an inlayed floor medallion.

And that’s only the beginning. As the listing notes, the impressive European manor-inspired residence offers over 10,000 square feet of space and has a whole-house sound system. “Intricate” crown moldings and ceiling medallions are throughout, while high-end light fixtures are at every turn. Entertainment amenities can be found both indoors and outdoors, the latter consisting of the nearby Radnor Township Walking Trail and downtown Wayne.

Would you classify this Lower Merion residence as a mid-century modern? It certainly has that airy, light-generous roominess those types of buildings are known to have. No kidding, the home, built sometime in the 1950s, offers over 4,100 square feet and has high ceilings and a plethora of windows, which to us seems like the perfect place to host large gatherings.

Outdoor features include a back covered porch, a swimming pool one can see from the wall of windows in the lower level, and a pergola-covered terrace off the dining room and kitchen, where a breakfast area has bonus sitting room thanks to the 16-foot granite and stainless steel island. Kitchen amenities consist of a SubZero fridge, three sinks, a wine cooler, and a 6 burner Garland commercial range. A loft area can be found upstairs, while the family room, exercise area, and additional rooms are on the lower level.

Main Line Monday: “Mistwood”

Sound a bit like it’s the next tween obsession, doesn’t it? Fortunately in this case, Mistwood is more of an all-ages real estate infatuation than a 13-year-old’s fantasy fixation.

Situated on eleven acres of Radnor Hunt, the property claims an Ann Capron-designed stone & stucco colonial with 4-car heated garage (no chilly walks to the car!), a separate two-bedroom caretaker’s apartment, and a detached 3-car garage/workshop. Still unimpressed? In addition to those structures, the estate holds a bank barn, lighted tennis court, indoor-outdoor pool with stone terrace, koi pond, a stocked pond with dock, and a waterfall and meandering stream. (Okay so maybe it does have a touch of the fantastical.)

Main Line Monday: Bright Villanova Home with Mansard Roof

This isn’t the first time we’ve featured a Walter Durham-designed home, and it’s likely that it won’t be the last given the extent of his Main Line work. But contrary to his past residential creations we’ve covered, this one boasts touches of Second Empire French architecture (including a Mansard roof) and a collection of brightly colored rooms, most of which shades of gold or amber.

What’s more, its sunny interior is purportedly highlighted by natural light that pervades each room. (Per the listing, “each room is filled with light and frames a glimpse of private gardens.”) Among its more sun-friendly compartments are a solarium and a formal living room with glass doors that are described as “capturing the early afternoon sun.” The entry foyer also claims glass doors, which are not pictured.

Jaw Dropper of the Week: Modern Gladwyne Castle for $4.5 Million

He likes sophisticated modern living, she prefers homey spaces with a touch of the historical. Where and how will they ever find a home that suits both tastes? More importantly, wouldn’t a house like that elicit more than its fair share of eyebrow raises (and not in a good way)?

If you answered yes to the latter question, this house may change your mind. Ardwyn, a 70-year-old structure built in the French Norman style, is situated on three-plus acres of Main Line land and is a perfect blend of the above described tastes. The home owes its unique design to Castlecomb Projects who artfully balanced it out with “bold, impeccably selected and masterfully crafted” finishes. Stone and brick make up the building, which offers a spiral staircase turret, soaring ceilings, exquisite detailing, and a chic kitchen that looks like it was taken out of the pages of HGTV Magazine. To boot, there’s an upper level room with windows looking out to the great room, as well as an adjacent interior balcony.

You just have to see the gallery!
