That’s the beauty of (most) Main Line homes isn’t it? If properly situated, they can seem worlds away from the hum of civilization on quiet afternoons, all the while being minutes from a main street or train station by car. This two-plus acre estate in Ardmore is one such home, although it does one better: it’s within walking distance to SEPTA regional rail and Suburban Square, the boutique shopping center with expansion plans in the works.

As we said though, you wouldn’t know it on lazy days what with the tree-surrounded property encompassing a “larger than a tennis court” yard and lower garden with a brook and fountain. The pool is hidden too, notes the listing, by greenery that’s part of the circular driveway. Other of its outdoor features we think you might like: wrap-around screened porch, pea stone courtyard, pool house, and three-car garage currently used as an office with three-bedroom apartment above.

Inside, the Ardmore gem impresses us with leaded glass windows; kitchen great room with “chef’s area,” breakfast area and den space; and a full-sized elevator going up to the second level. Gum wood paneling can be found in the dining room and library, while upstairs are a laundry loft, recreation space, and six bedrooms. The master suite boasts a sleeping porch in addition to his & her baths and separate dressing room with fireplace.

Baths: 5 full, 1 half
