A Main Line Treasure Reimagined. Rich in history and epitomizing the grace and elegance of an era gone by, this quintessential residence was built in 1878. Using only the finest materials of dressed stone, brick, and unique craftsman style wood details this home was designed by none other than Henry Morris, son in law to Philadelphia's very own Isaac Hallowell Clothier, department store magnate and philanthropist. Once part of his original Wynnewood estate, Clothier's Ballytore Castle still stands proudly nearby. 1202 West Wynnewood Road features a handsome stone exterior highlighted by a deep, breezy front porch and an interior that boasts seven fireplaces. This 19th century gem has been redesigned to reflect today's modern living. Spotlighted details include pocket doors, transom light windows, built in cabinetry, original Cremone iron bolt hardware, decorative crown molding and honey-hued hardwood flooring. The center hall calls attention to its carved wooden staircase and high ceilings. The formal living room's focal point is an oversized marble hearth accentuated by stunning millwork and arched windows. The communal kitchen and dining area's idyllic charm are complemented by exposed brick accents, herringbone flooring, a hammered copper sink, and flawless marble countertops and backsplash. The working island creates a clever cooking station housed with a Cafe Series six burner gas double oven that lends itself to easy entertaining as it overlooks the dining room and corner cozy fireplace. The second-floor master bedroom flaunts a beamed ceiling, fireplace with marble shelving, a customized walk in-closet and en suite full bathroom with marble topped vanity, fireplace, an oversized frameless glass shower with spa-like shower head and herringbone tile design. Two additional bedrooms with original beadboard ceilings can also be found on this level; one harbors a large, marbled mantel fireplace. The bedrooms are joined by a Jack and Jill bath with eclectic accents, vintage style sink and newly tiled tub/shower. The garden level family room unveils a soothing color scheme, large picture windows with deep windowsills, recessed lighting, gas fireplace, and antiqued marble flooring with bold diamond pattern. A set of French doors leads to the powder room, adjacent private office, and a full laundry room. Other stunning updates include dual zone heating and air, architectural series shingle roof and gardens with mature landscaping and hidden walkways. Three outdoor living spaces include generously sized slate patios that create the perfect backdrop for formal and informal gatherings. The neighborhood claims proximity to Lankenau Medical Center, resides in award winning Lower Merion School District, and is in an established walk-to everything neighborhood, including Wholefoods, Starbucks, Wynnewood Shopping Center, as well as numerous restaurants and public transportation including Septa's Regional Rail with service to Center City, Philadelphia.
