Main Line Casual in Radnor for $1.6M
Not one of those stuffy Main Line types? This is your Main Line home.
We should perhaps be thankful for those old-money families who built grand estates on the Main Line only to have to dismember them as time passed and their fortunes got divvied up among the heirs.
They left behind a rich feedstock for adaptive reuse in their carriage houses, many of which break the Main Line mold as living spaces.
This is one of those carriage houses.
Built in 1900, it’s been transformed into a home that contains all the traditional style cues and detailing of a Main Line Colonial, but arranged in a totally informal fashion that invites you and your guests to relax and let their hair down.
It also offers something not often found out this way: Main Line loft living.
Literally: the master suite features a soaring bedroom with a vaulted, gabled ceiling, two-story-high fireplace and private loft balcony.
The main guest/in-law suite also has that loft-like feel thanks to its beamed vaulted ceiling as well.
Natural wood beams, stone walls and a stone fireplace give the great room, two-story-high family room and dining room extra character as well.
Out back, an expansive deck overlooks the pool on the downhill side of the home’s sloping backyard.
Situated on a cul-de-sac behind the Radnor Corporate Center, this home makes an ideal private retreat — one where you won’t have to worry about keeping up appearances.
