Extraordinary property bordering the Wissahickon Valley, Fairmount Park; "Andorra Corner" (circa 1722) offers the discriminating buyer a country estate at the edge of Chestnut Hill. Walking distance to the head of Forbidden Drive and all the trails of the Wissahickon ravine, and the Morris Arboretum. Property includes the main house with 5 bedrooms and 5 ensuite baths, living room, dining room, office, kitchen with great room, butler's pantry, second floor laundry, powder room, mudroom, playroom, finished basement with exercise room, changing room, bathroom, and walk-out to pool area. Meticulously expanded and renovated for 21st century living, the home offers expansive and flexible living space for day-to-day living, and exceptional architectural features that set the stage for memorable entertaining. Enter the front door off the driveway courtyard to a gracious foyer. To the right is an intimate formal living room with fireplace. There is also a quiet wing off the front entrance that houses a library/office, bedroom, and full bath. Back to the foyer and to the left is a spectacular light-filled gallery with three sets of French doors that lead to the landscaped patios, grounds, and pool area. From the gallery, you will reach the dining room, butler's pantry, kitchen and great room, and backdoor mudroom. To call the room at one end of the house, the kitchen is an understatement. The great room which houses the kitchen, family room, butler's pantry, and informal dining area is a showstopper. Wolf and Subzero appliances. Beautiful marble counter tops. Custom cabinetry. Vaulted ceiling. Spectacular lighting. There is a breezeway that leads to the fabulous carriage house with a two bedroom apartment on the second floor and four box stalls on the lower level. The garage is adjacent to the carriage house. Up a dedicated staircase is the master suite with serene bedroom, large dressing room, separate walk-in closet, beautiful bathroom, and separate sitting room. In the opposite wing of the second floor are two large bedrooms with each their own spacious bathrooms. Yes, this oasis has it all. Extraordinary finishes of marble, stainless steel, custom cabinetry, dramatic lighting, and fine flooring, are what you would expect from a house of this ilk; but the walled perimeter, the multiple fireplaces, the access to Fairmount Park, its proximity to Chestnut Hill and the rest of Philadelphia, and its history set the property above expectation.
