The legendary Main Line estate, Rocky Crest, is a showcase of superior workmanship, stunning architectural details and picturesque views of the exquisite gardens originally designed by world-famous landscape architect Thomas Sears. Even more recently added amenities and improvements blend seamlessly. Built circa 1901, this breathtaking residence sits privately on over 15 acres - some of which are preserved in perpetuity - and include a 70x30 in-ground pool, pool house, tennis court, and a carriage house with two 1-bedroom apartments, a wine-tasting room and a 1,000-bottle wine cellar. A long and circular drive leads to the main entrance and the grand reception hall flooded with light and rich detail. The main house is designed into various wings, and many of the rooms have oversized fireplaces. Various bedrooms have individual bathrooms and provide suite-like privacy, as well as views of the expansive grounds. The East wing contains the incomparable Master Suite with two large sitting rooms, one with fireplace and balcony, three private baths, and grand, room-size walk-in closets. The custom kitchen features all high-end finishes and appliances such as Wolf and Sub-Zero, and extends into a separate butler's pantry. The main floor media/family room is simply nonpareil - from the warmth of the solid wood bookcases to the room's intimate feel. A sunroom, a library, and many other rooms all blend to create this outstanding example of historic architecture. There's even a Rathskeller with gaming room and massive fireplace. To find such an estate so exquisitely designed, so privately situated on the Main Line is almost unheard of. To be part of its future is incalculable. .
