Main Line Monday: Classically Modern Opulence in Wayne, $3.15M

The center-hall Colonial is a Main Line cliché. But there's nothing cliché about this fabulously expanded example that bears the touch of several gifted builders and designers.

This 1910 center-hall Colonial in Wayne has all the basic elements of this staple Main Line house type: a central entrance foyer with grand staircase flanked by a formal living room on one side and a formal dining room on the other. Fireplaces galore. Great rooms with coffered ceilings. You get the idea.

But look closer and you’ll notice that this vision in white is also a departure from the standard in just about every way possible: Where many center-hall Colonials are dark, staid and somber, this one is bright, airy and colorful, with plenty of sun-drenched rooms. A succession of master builders and designers have left their mark on this home, bringing it into the 21st century with tastefully opulent upgrades and additions that mix traditional and modern elements.

From the outside, lush greenery and landscaping lead you into this stately white manor that holds the keys to all your dreams and more. Inside, you’ll notice the superior craftsmanship and custom millwork throughout, with dignified hardwoods and recessed lighting from top to bottom. Floor-to-ceiling windows bring oodles of natural light into the great room, while a spacious kitchen has all the ingredients you need, including a restaurant-quality range. Fireplaces with exquisitely carved mantles are set in just about every room, including the breakfast room. The master suite’s bedroom has one too, along with a master bathroom that has all the makings of a 5-star hotel experience.

Downstairs, the basement houses a gym as well as additional living space, while outside, your backyard not only includes four acres of lush green grass but also an incredible pool and pool house, set at the bottom of a stepped, two-tiered flagstone patio.

If you’re looking for a home that stands out among the rest, is in a comfortable and desirable neighborhood, and happens to be just a 15-minute drive from the city, then this Radnor Township home is the home you’ve been looking for.
