Surrounded by lush greenery on an expansive cul-de-sac lot, this home captivates all with its remote privacy and impeccable details throughout. Located in the highly distinguished town of Villanova, this stately five-bedroom, four-and-a-half bath manor has everything you need to live a lavish lifestyle.
Upon arrival, you are welcomed to the property by an extravagant front yard with manicured hedges, vibrant foliage, and mature trees in the front gardens. A flagstone walkway leads to a tasteful wooden front door with a window surround at the grand main entrance. Entering the home, you are greeted by a vast two story foyer detailed with glistening hardwood flooring, masterful crown molding, and recessed lighting. Directly off the foyer to your right sits the first living area, complete with a gas fireplace with a marble surround, oversized windows, crown molding, and recessed lighting. Across the hall is the formal dining room, elegantly accented with custom wainscoting, bright Palladian windows, crown molding, recessed lighting, and plenty of space to comfortably host endless dinner parties. Follow the hardwood flooring down the center hall and make your way to the in-home office that features custom wood shelving, sweeping views of the backyard, and direct access to the sun soaked second living area.
Nestled in the back of the home is the gourmet eat-in kitchen detailed with a butlers pantry featuring a second sink and dishwasher, top of the line stainless steel appliances, sophisticated floor and backsplash tiling, shining countertops and island, and a plethora of wooden cabinet space. A breakfast area completes the kitchen, which enjoys direct access to the substantial back deck. The main living area sits directly off the kitchen, finished with oversized windows and recessed lighting. A convenient half bath rounds out the main floor.
Take the grand front wooden staircase to the second floor and find your way to the primary suite, masterfully detailed with a sumptuous sitting area, dual walk-in closets, plush carpeting, tray ceiling, and a private workout area. The exclusive ensuite bath features a corner dual vanity, an intimate soaking tub, a large glass-enclosed walk-in shower, and decorous tiling. Three additional sizable bedrooms can be found on this floor, with one bedroom enjoying the use of their own private ensuite bathroom, and the other two bedrooms sharing a jack and jill full bath.
