Jawdropper of the Week: A Lot to Love in Newtown Square for $5.95M
We don’t normally use listings from the same town for consecutive weeks’ jawdroppers, but when it’s deserved, we are more than willing to make an exception – and this time around, Newtown Square deserves that exception.
This Delaware County manor home sits on a whopping 12.7 acres of land, which is simply incredible. Besides the six-car garage, the in-ground pool and hot tub combo, the spacious back patio, and multiple gardens, the lot is pretty much empty. We aren’t exactly sure what to make of all that extra space, but the options are clearly limitless for any ambitious homeowner.
Inside the residence, there’s plenty of room too: nearly 11,500 square feet worth, all of which this home’s creators have put to good use. Its formal spaces are contrasted nicely with modern neutral tones. Highlights of the interior include 10-foot ceilings on the first floor, 9-foot ceilings on the second floor, oak flooring throughout, many floor-to-ceiling windows, and more. The massive kitchen island is truly a knock-out piece in the home and takes an already stellar kitchen to the next level.
The master bedroom boasts a large window seat, an expansive master closet, and a sophisticated master bathroom. Five additional bedroom suites can be found throughout the home, as well.
Other bonus features in the home include a billiards room and library, a sunlit breakfast room, an office, and a separate in-law suite. If you want to live like royalty just outside of Philadelphia, come see this place for yourself – it’ll only cost you about $6 million (haha, it doesn’t hurt to dream, right?).
