Main Line Monday: Furness-Designed “Lynhurst” Going For $3.1 Million
Gosh, what a time to be alive. Originally part of the historic Knollbrook estate, Lynhurst was a three-year construction built at the behest of attorney I. Layton Register who would go on to use it at his summer residence. Given that it was the late 1800s (the stone manse was completed in 1890), Register was able to have its designer be none other than now legendary Philadelphia architect Frank Furness. Today, it’s listed for a cool $3.1 million.
As you’d imagine, the Main Line stunner is said to have retained its “impeccable architectural symmetry,” though it’s also in the way of offering a meticulously update interior, beginning with the kitchen, which has been recently renovated, along with the breakfast area. Here, built-in seating lends some charm to the pristine space, which comes with an ogee-edged center island and ample cabinetry.
Notable details include a wood-burning fireplace with a “scenic,” mosaic tile surround in the center foyer and a library with custom-shelving, fireplace, and wet bar. Exposures in both the living and family rooms lead out to outdoor terraces, one of which connects to the landscaped pool area with stone patio. Upstairs, the master suite consists of two rooms and has a renovated marble bath, as well as a walk-in outfitted closet. The second room is currently purposed as an office.
