This four bedroom stone front farmhouse exudes elegance, character and charm. It is beautifully sited on just under two private acres on arguably the most desired lane in Whitemarsh township. This ideal setting is only a pitching wedge away from the Wissahickon Golf Course of The Philadelphia Cricket Club and a few steps from the Ft. Washington State Park and the Green Ribbon Walking Trails. What an opportunity for the most discriminating buyer - an impeccable, updated home in a rare location! Special features of this pristine farmhouse include wide planked pine flooring, exquisite custom millwork, deep window sills, numerous built-ins, newer bathrooms, a cedar roof, and copper gutters and downspouts. Quality materials, tasteful decor and attention to detail can be found in each and every room. Enter into a brick floored foyer with turned staircase. Step down to the living room on the right and find a gorgeous coffered ceiling, gas fireplace with custom mantle and two sets of French doors leading to the screened in porch. Turn left from the foyer to the dining room which features built in shelving, oversized windows and a unique chandelier. Pocket doors lead in to the kitchen which was created for the gourmet cook who loves to entertain. There is a large granite topped center island, two Dacor ovens, warming oven, built in microwave and a 6 burner Dacor gas cooktop and a SubZero refrigerator. Two Bosch dishwashers make clean up easy! Many windows over the sink bring in plenty of light and provide special opportunities to watch nature unfold in the back yard. A mud room with handy sink leads to the kitchen area from the front porch area. A wonderful breakfast/garden room with windows galore is adjacent to the kitchen. This is perfect for entertaining big crowds and there is easy access to the blue stone patio and built in Lynx grill. A private office features custom built ins and attractive boxed window. The family room definitely is a show stopper! There is a two story stone wood burning fireplace with a raised hearth. Other features include shiplap molding, large built in bookshelves, oversized windows and a custom bar area with juice and wine refrigerators. Highlights of the powder room include a decorative chandelier, beadboard molding and a furniture styled vanity. The most organized utility closet is tucked away in back of the powder room. The master bedroom retreat has been reconfigured and now has his and hers walk in custom closets with built in dressers, a marble master bath with radiant heating, stall shower with rain forest shower head and large soaking tub. The laundry/wrapping room was part of the second floor reconfiguration. There are three additional bedrooms and two additional updated bathrooms on the second floor. The fourth bedroom can be accessed either through the third bedroom or by the back staircase. The basement has a large finished area and there is a high efficiency heater, radon system and whole house generator. The "pool house" which has solar heat, is home to the 10'x16' endless pool which is 4 1/2 feet deep. The second powder room is located here. There is a separate three car garage with a second story loft storage area and abundant parking in the enlarged driveway. An attractive, "over the top" garden shed is found in the far corner of the yard. It is the perfect spot for the avid gardener and even comes equipped with electricity, water and cable. Stately specimen trees and professionally designed perennial gardens combine to create a wonderful paradise surrounding this gem of a home. Even though this is a special country setting, shopping, restaurants, schools, Flourtown, Chestnut Hill, 309 and the turnpike are only minutes away. This is a "must see" for buyers!!
