    Property Details

    An absolute treasure awaits at the end of a private road in the heart of Blue Bell. This amazing property sited on 1.61 acres of manicured grounds and mature landscaping will capture your heart. The original springhouse was built in 1840 ~ the original section of the house in 1860. A long flagstone walkway, flanked by beautiful boxwood hedges leads to the front porch. Random width hardwood floors and deep silled windows are captured at every turn. The spacious living room featuring a wood burning fireplace with brick hearth provides access to the expansive flagstone terrace; overlooking the in-ground pool and mature plantings. The dining room with large bay window offers 3 sets of French doors opening to the brick terrace with amazing views of specimen trees, adjacent fields and pastures. A vintage kitchen offers endless possibilities with a butler's pantry and two additional closeted pantries. There is a rear entrance off of the kitchen that could provide a nicely sized mudroom or separate entrance for a first floor suite with two bedrooms and full bath (currently used as a studio and office). The second floor with large landing offers a versatile floor plan. The master bedroom has a private bath and two large closets in addition to a dressing area with fireplace - this could also be converted to an additional bedroom. The second bedroom with two large closets and access to the walk-up attic also features a bathroom and dressing/sitting room. A detached 2-car garage plus a large art studio would be ideal for a home office. Beautifully maintained!
