This meticulously maintained Ann Capron-designed stone & stucco colonial is a needle in a haystack. The house is only 22 years old and its location is unbeatable~it offers easy access to Philadelphia and convenient to public transportation as well as all kinds of restaurants and services, but is situated on a quiet street in an established Bala Cynwyd neighborhood. The wonderful surprise? The wildlife preserve that abuts the property creates an oasis-like privacy you'd never expect in this eastern Main Line location. The main entrance features a two-story foyer with turned staircase as well as a coat closet and tucked-away powder room. The living room with gas fireplace leads to the office through a set of French doors. The office also opens onto the generously sized family room with soaring ceiling, gas fireplace, lots of windows and sliders to the two-story, maintenance-free deck. The elegant dining room is served by the adjoining butler's pantry and spacious kitchen. Plenty of storage space, great natural light, all stainless steel appliances and new counter tops make for easy entertaining. The breakfast area, which sits between the kitchen and family room, has newer 4-ft. Pella sliders that open to the low-maintenance, two-story deck. Just off the kitchen, you~ll find the laundry room, second powder room and mud room as well as garage access. High ceilings and hardwood floors throughout the main level. Arrive at the second floor by one of two staircases. Privately-located at one end is the roomy master suite with a large sitting room sporting a gas fireplace. The sleeping area leads to two walk-in closets and a bathroom with soaking tub, shower, two sinks and private water closet. There are four additional bedrooms on this floor with two hall baths. Stairs to the attic reveal an absolutely enormous space with very high ceilings which could store anything you could possibly own or be finished as additional living space.The fabulous walk-out lower level is bright and open. A gym/bedroom/craft room space (your choice!) is served by a full bath and three other distinct areas that offers places for a pool table, homework space, media area, and the home~s fourth gas fireplace. The wet bar makes entertaining easy, especially with access to the patio and lower level of the deck through two new Pella sliders.
