Sunshine on Your Shoulders in Bryn Mawr for $985K
Not only can you make electricity while the sun shines here, you'll have it made in the shade in this estate home's lovely backyard.
Just because you have plenty of money you can spend doesn’t mean that you want to spend it if you don’t have to.
And clearly, the owners of this sun-splashed, recently built estate home between Bryn Mawr and Rosemont decided to take advantage of all that sunshine to save themselves some money and do the environment a solid while they were at it.
Those solar panel arrays on this home’s roof will let you keep cool inside on hot summer days without having your electric bill blow a hole in your budget.
But you might just prefer to turn your thermostats up a little and opt for this home’s Plan B instead, which is its beautifully landscaped, tree-shaded backyard.
This two-level beauty combines an expansive deck on its upper level with a landscaped swimming pool on its lower one, with stone steps connecting the two.
(The owners must also be real barbecue aficionados, for the outdoor kitchen on the deck offers both a gas grill fed by a direct line and a Big Green Egg charcoal barbecue grill and smoker. When you buy this home, be sure to drop us a line and invite us over for your first cookout.)
But since you will probably be spending most of your waking hours indoors, we should note that this home is just as thoughtfully outfitted on the inside.
It features a main floor that offers both formal spaces for entertaining and a large, open space for informal relaxation and entertaining. An impressive but not overwhelming two-story foyer unites the ensemble.
The informal space combines a nicely equipped kitchen, a breakfast area and a family room with gas fireplace.
The lower level lets you take the party inside when you get tired of the swimming pool and deck. It includes a kitchenette and a full bath with steam shower. Beyond the sliding barn door at one end you’ll find a gym and storage space.
Upstairs, the master suite makes an ideal private retreat. It includes a windowed dressing room and a bathroom with a walk-in multi-jet shower and soaking tub.
And finally, this secluded home is conveniently located just a short walk from Rosemont Regional Rail station, where you can catch Regional Rail for a quick commute into the city. Downtown Bryn Mawr and Villanova University are also within walking distance.
