Description

Sylvan Edge has been carefully restored to its original glory featuring the addition of many modern updates. Originally designed by noted Philadelphia architecture firm of Tilden, Register & Pepper for Joseph J. Greenberg. Sylvan Edge is a Georgian Revival Estate built in the late 1920s with attention to fine details and old-world craftsmanship, no expense was spared! Featured in Architectural Digest & listed in the Architectural Archives of the University of Pennsylvania. The entrance of the Estate features beautiful wrought iron gates, a walled Belgian blocked courtyard & professionally landscaped grounds. This Estate is situated on a stately flat corner lot of nearly 1 acre, a rare find in the area. Old world craftsmanship featured throughout: handcrafted Ludowici Clay Tile Roof (also on The Empire State Building, Yale University& Frank Lloyd Wright's Wingspread) adorns the oversized 3 car garage with loft. Through the marble entrance & impressive 2 story foyer soaring 20+ feet, you will find a library/office with wood burning fireplace, rich wood paneled walls, floor to ceiling built-in bookcases & one of the many spectacular chandeliers of the period. Step down into the grand living area with many French doors, high ceilings, custom marble fireplace , chandelier, walled carved paneled back wall with built-ins. You will spend hours overlooking the pool area and sunroom while enjoying the wood burning fireplace. The French doors open into the heated/air conditioned sunroom with an additional wall of French doors that overlook the spectacular grounds. Prepare to be stunned by the gorgeous travertine floors, Lunette fountain, and bar area which makes this home a great place to entertain before or after a swim in the heated pool to extend your seasonal use. There is an expansive new bluestone patio above the pool area extending from the French doors. Plenty of room for entertaining and year-round fun! Spacious formal Dining Room with floor to ceiling French doors, wood burning fireplace, and walls with hidden storage areas for glassware etc. Don+GGt miss the Gourmet Cook+GGs Kitchen with high end appliances including an 8 Burner VIKING Range, original restored range hood, additional full oven, 3 sinks, 2 dishwashers, microwave, full size freezer, and separate full-sized refrigerator! No expense was spared with this carefully planned designer kitchen with its Quartz Countertops and Farmhouse Sink. Adjoining first floor laundry room with covered exit to the courtyard. Don+GGt miss the staircase to the back bedrooms on the 2nd floor. First floor powder room tucked away between the foyer and kitchen/dining room area with its Mercer Tile floor and custom design features. Travel up to the second floor where you will find a Primary Suite suited for royalty. Relax by the fireplace and enjoy the custom painting and built-ins in the extra-large Primary Bedroom. Adjoining dressing room features custom closets, a bathroom with soaking tub, marble top custom hand-painted cabinetry, fresco designs, a custom sink, and crystal style faucets. There is an additional shoe closet/shelving with leaded glass designed doors ,adjoining bathroom with shower and tub and another dressing room. You will never want to leave the bedroom! A charming Veranda overlooks the pool and rear grounds. The second bedroom on this level features another ensuite large walk-in closet and fireplace with custom tile. You willfind 3 additional bedrooms with plenty of closet space in each room and in the hallways, and 2 full bathrooms. Third floor features 3 additional bedrooms and a full bathroom. There is a very large unfinished basement with high ceilings, upgraded electric and new heating (3 Zones) and high velocity air conditioning system. Too many details to list!
