Main Line Monday: Custom-Designed Residential Gem in Radnor Has a Secret
You wouldn’t think this four-acre Main Line residence had any surprises in store for us since it starts out simple enough: two picturesque speakeasy doors leading into an impressive foyer, wrought iron staircase, random width floors, even period fireplaces in the living and dining rooms.
The kitchen, too, boasts amenities akin to homes of this caliber: stainless steel appliances, marble island, walk-in pantry and a bonus desk area. Trussed beams and a wet bar mudroom are family room features, while extra miscellaneous rooms include a library, wine cellar and au-pair suite above one of the garages.
But here’s the kicker (not a bad one, either): a section of the original 84-year-old home that sat on the property has been adapted into the 8,000 square feet of new construction, which, if you were worried, has no trouble blending in with the historical house since the modern section was “crafted to look old.”
Outside are flagstone terraces, formal knot gardens, infinity pool, tennis court and a porch with outside kitchen and fireplace.
