On the Market: Hilltop Estate in Malvern
You'll love the views from this house that sits atop Valley Forge Mountain - both distant and close-up. What's inside ain't half bad either.
If your lifelong ambition has been to be “king (or queen) of the hill” someday, now’s your chance to seize the occasion.
Your castle will be this expansive French chateau that’s perched atop Valley Forge Mountain on a secluded six-acre lot.
You and your family will live like royalty in it, and it has the space and amenities you need to give your visiting relatives and guests the royal treatment.
Its centerpiece is the expansive space beyond the two-story-high foyer.
On one side of this space is a huge living room with a stone fireplace.
On the other, a two-story-high kitchen done up in French country style with a travertine marble floor, high-end appliances, an island with bar seating, and an informal dining area. Between these two rooms is a sunken great room that’s part of the floor below.
The formal dining room also has a fireplace and large windows that let the beautifully landscaped outside in. The butler’s pantry attached to the dining room has a wet bar, wine rack and wine fridge.
All five of its upstairs bedrooms have plenty of space, but none have as much as the master, which could accommodate any two of the other four inside it.
It also has a huge walk-in closet and a luxurious spa bath.
The walkout basement has several spaces built for entertaining, including a media room, a large rec room and a bar.
From it, you walk out onto a fabulous sloping backyard. It includes a raised terrace off the kitchen, lovely landscaping, and a pool with waterfall and spa.
And from these commanding heights, you can see all of the beautiful countryside that surrounds you. Yet you’re just a short drive from Chesterbrook, King of Prussia, Valley Forge National Historical Park and the Pennsylvania Turnpike.
