Homes with Names: Au Vallon

Even the master suite bathroom has a fireplace!

Au Vallon - 1850 W Montgomery Ave

If you hear that a home has a name, chances are you’re in for a treat. This ultra luxe estate has Au Vallon for its title, which is probably an homage to its locale: two green-filled acres of Villanova land.

And so, “to the Valley” we go: the renovated and restored property has a new fence and gate, ensuring privacy for residents who will have a carriage home with a French door-surrounded interior brick courtyard, refinished pool, Juliette balconies and rotating bookcase leading to the private dining room.

The master suite takes up the majority of the second floor (there’s also a smaller room here that could be used as an office) and has a beamed ceiling, balcony overlooking the pool and wood burning fireplace, just one of six in the home. Another fireplace can be found in master bedroom’s attached marble bathroom, which has floor-to-ceiling windows, sauna, frameless shower and claw foot tub.

Amenities in the country kitchen include two dishwashers, three sinks and Sub Zero appliances. Outdoor features encompass tiered slate patios, rose gardens and other mature plantings.
