All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy, as we all should know. It probably doesn’t do much for Jill’s overall well-being either.

So both really need a place where they can play once work is done. This split-level in the Marple Summit subdivision just outside Broomall is that place.

Yes, it has five bedrooms—four upstairs, one down below—and a home office in its basement, so it has you covered on working and sleeping too. But this home is built for fun time thanks to several renovations and a major expansion its owner gave it.

Living room

The add-ons and upgrades have turned its handsome, bay-windowed living room and its classic fireplace into something of an afterthought, but it is the first room you encounter after entering this home’s tiled foyer.

Most of the time, though, you, your family and your guests will just keep walking back to the grand space beyond it.

Kitchen

This space combines a modern kitchen, a dining room and a family room in a single, open, flowing space separated by counters or archways.

Kitchen, dining room, family room

Family room, dining room, kitchen

The high vaulted ceilings in the dining room and family room give them a dash 0f grandeur, and the huge floor-t0-ceiling (almost) windows at the back of the family room fill this space with light.

Deck

On the other side of those windows, a large deck overlooks the even larger backyard, a perfect space for hanging out and summer barbecues.

Patio

Make that one of two perfect spaces. The other is the stone paver terrace down the stairs from the deck.

Pub room

Circle back inside the house through the lower-level door, make your way past the two-car garage, and marvel at one of the most magnificent man-caves we’ve ever laid eyes on.

Pub room

This basement pub is outfitted for fun and games. It has an exposed stone wall, slate floors, two wine fridges and a mini-fridge under its bar, and a stone fireplace with a big-screen TV mount above it. (The home office, by the way, is located off this room. We hope you’re not easily distracted when working.)

All of this sits in a convenient location and a great school district, with many options for shopping, dining and even entertainment a short drive away. Though why you’d feel you needed to leave this place for entertainment, we can’t figure out.
