Jawdropper of the Week: Clean, Crisp and Refreshing in Radnor
This being Philadelphia, a lot of us love our homes to at least convey a sense of history. That’s even truer on the Main Line, and especially so in tony Radnor. But those of you with a penchant for crisp, clean lines should find this High Modernist home out that way highly appealing.
The home’s white stucco exterior, with its black window bands and stone wall, may make you feel like you ran across a sunnier version of a Louis Kahn home. Inside, features like sleek white interiors, lots of windows letting in natural light and open floor plans make this home even sunnier. A striking spiral staircase is the focal point of the foyer.
Both the living and dining rooms are spacious and have access to the deck through sliding glass doors. The family room features a striking gas fireplace and is one with the sleek, updated kitchen, separated by a long breakfast bar. The kitchen includes an under-the-counter wine refrigerator, quartz counters, tile backsplash and floor and state-of-the-art appliances. A pantry room next to the kitchen adds additional storage space with tons of cabinets, a second refrigerator, vegetable sink and closet.
All of the rooms on the main floor have sliding glass doors that open onto an enormous deck that spans the width of the house, overlooking beautifully landscaped grounds with a play area and pool.
Upstairs, the large master suite boasts a gas fireplace, walk-in custom closet and a stunning master bathroom, which includes a double spa tub, walk-in shower, doubly vanity and skylights illuminating the space. Also upstairs are three additional bedrooms, one of which is currently being used as a home office, and the laundry room. All bathrooms have been newly updated throughout the home.
The walkout lower level features a full guest/in-law suite with its own kitchen, living area opening to a porch overlooking the pool, two bedrooms, full bathroom and space for a washer and dryer. The U-shaped drive provides plentiful parking, and there’s additional parking outside the oversized two-car garage.
