You’ve heard the phrase “everything old is new again” a million times, I’m sure.

Well, with this handsome Tudor house for sale in Gladwyne, everything new is old again.

And that’s exactly the way its owners wanted it to look.

Both inside and out, this house looks for all the world like those Tudor Revival beauties Philadelphia grandees built between the end of World War I and the Great Depression. It has that classic style and fine craftsmanship one finds much less often these days.

Or so people think. This house is all of 13 years old.

And while its interior layout follows the time-honored pattern of the center-hall Colonial, it has many modern features.

But it also has an inviting everyday living suite behind the dining room and butler’s pantry. It has two distinct spaces: the kitchen/casual dining room combo and a great room.

Great room

The great room manages to channel the 16th century very well with its reclaimed wood timbers and stone fireplace. Yet it offers pure 21st-century comfort and light thanks to its large windows.

It has a beautiful master suite and four additional bedrooms on the second floor and an unfinished attic that offers storage space — or you could turn it into a bonus room.

Basement rec room

Not that you’d really need it, though, for its finished basement contains a huge rec room and playroom.

Indoor hockey rink

It also has one unusual feature: an indoor hockey rink in an unfinished room. If you don’t have kids who love hockey the way one of the owners’ sons does, you could turn this into a wine cellar easily.

Rear patio and backyard

Outside, there’s a basketball goal in the driveway, a rear patio and plenty of greenery. And there’s even more greenery behind your backyard: this property abuts the 87-acre Kenealy Nature Park, which offers hiking and bridle trails.

This house sits on a secluded lane that’s also close to Gladwyne’s village center, thus offering you not only a perfect blend of old and new but also privacy and convenience at the same time.
