Main Line Monday: Classic Bryn Mawr Colonial Features Glorious Staircase, Solarium
There’s plenty to love about this home on Bryn Mawr’s north side. For starters, it dates back to 1885, and with that vintage charm comes some major curb appeal.
The minute you step inside its 3-story grand entry hall, you realize this place is no joke. A glorious winding staircase greets you, and if you want to be extra sure of its pomp, check out the fireplace on the landing of the second floor. They just don’t make ’em like they used to, huh?
But the home is more than just a fancy, swoon-worthy staircase defined by incredible hardwood floors, ornate handrails and dowels–just you wait!
As you can see from the curb, the home boasts a huge solarium to the left of the entry. It looks even more impressive from the inside, as it’s decked out with hardwood floors, French doors the a patio, a fireplace and huge windows. We’d imagine this is a popular spot to hang out.
Other classic features include five fireplaces throughout, leaded glass windows, lovely hardwood floors and crown molding.
There are a few newer spaces that really caught our eye, especially that neat breakfast nook with bench seating in the kitchen and the massive master bedroom suite, which features a sitting room and bath with separate Jacuzzi tub.
