Great Room in Bryn Mawr for $500K
What happens when a custom builder gets his hands on a 1950 Colonial? You get a 1950 Colonial with an all-new custom home inside.
You should be able to figure out something’s afoot with this modest-looking stone Colonial just below Bryn Mawr Hospital in the Delaware County portion of the Main Line community just by looking at the photo above.
That stone paver driveway and walkway, for instance. They look pretty grand for a home this modest. And what about those Arts and Crafts-style windows? What are they doing in a Colonial?
They’re there because the builder who owns this home likes them, obviously. That builder likes this home so much that he gave it a total makeover that’s turned it into a striking custom home.
The centerpiece of the makeover is the huge great room tacked onto the back of the house. Combining a spacious open kitchen, dining area and family room in one, this addition turned the home’s original dining room into a bonus room that’s currently the province of the kids but could be anything you want it to be, including a formal dining room again.
The kitchen itself has a breakfast bar island, attractive tile backsplashes, and top-quality appliances.
Beyond the kitchen is the skylit main great room space, which currently contains a dining area and a family room area with a gas fireplace.
The second centerpiece of the makeover is the master bedroom suite, also part of the rear extension. This room also got a vaulted ceiling and skylights along with two large walk-in closets and a huge master bath with whirlpool tub, dual vanities and frameless glass shower.
All of the bedrooms have energy-saving ceiling fans and the bathrooms have all been attractively updated as well.
All this, and it’s centrally located too, just steps from the center of Bryn Mawr and close to two SEPTA rail lines? This may be too good a value to pass up. And if you agree, get on the horn with (or drop an email to) the agent right now, for the owner is reviewing all offers tomorrow, April 10th.
