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.
