Historicism remains very popular in American domestic architecture. Most of us, it seems, prefer our homes to be rooted in some style from centuries past.

But that doesn’t mean there’s no room for modern invention and reinterpretation. That much should be clear from the exterior photo of this new construction house for sale in the Merion Golf Manor section of Haverford.

The front facade remixes several styles, including Tudor, Cotswold and even a touch of Normandy, within an overall English picturesque frame.

Family room, breakfast area and kitchen

Inside, the design is more purely traditional, but here and there you can find more contemporary accents too. Check out the chandelier in the family room’s coffered ceiling, for instance.

Kitchen

And, of course, its layout and features are all 21st-century. That family room is part of a triple-threat, open-plan ensemble that includes a sunny breakfast nook and an extra-large kitchen with two islands, two sinks, two dishwashers, a six-burner cooktop, double oven, large Sub-Zero refrigerator and beverage fridge.

Basement

The finished basement can be outfitted as you please, and it comes with a wet bar.

The large lot gives this house for sale plenty of room to stretch out as well. And you get all this in a tranquil setting a stone’s throw from one of the region’s most storied golf courses.
