Main Line Monday: A Home for Modern Lovers in Bryn Mawr
Not everyone who prefers the Main Line lifestyle wants to live in a stone farmhouse, a mock Tudor or a new-construction center-hall Colonial. This week’s featured home is for those looking for something different.
This 1980s contemporary home sits on a 1.5-acre lot at the end of a secluded, tree-lined driveway on Bryn Mawr’s north side. Its steeply pitched roof hides its two-story height and gives it a low-slung feel, and its siting makes it an ideal choice for those who love the outdoors as much as they do the indoors.
The home’s large windows fill the place with light, and the large archways between the various living spaces give it an open feel. The family room, breakfast room, kitchen, dining room and solarium almost feel like a single space, and the dramatic two-story stone fireplace and floating staircase adds character to the main floor family room.
The home has both a master suite and a separate guest suite that opens onto a huge indoor pool and spa with its own changing room, wet bar, bath and private patio.
The outdoor spaces in this home are as stylish and dramatic as the indoor ones. They include a secluded atrium with waterfall and a brick terrace overlooking the rear yard as well as the stream that runs alongside the driveway.
