Beginning its life as Miss Roney's Finishing School for girls back in 1906, this Tudor style home perched atop a hill on an oversized lot in the coveted neighborhood of Bala Cynwyd is ready for its next Shepard. This home has 5100 square feet and features 7 bedrooms, 3 full and 1 half baths, hardwood floors throughout with stone and tile accents, a garage/carriage house and beautiful garden spaces. The main entrance welcomes you into a 4-season front porch with an abundance of natural light, hardwood floors and slate walk to main entry hall. Once through the solid wooden front door, one is greeted by an enormous entry hall with a grand staircase that ascends 3 stories high. There is a cloak room and 1/2 bath located off to the side with an entry to the rear solarium and kitchen. The entry hall is flanked by the main living room and dining room, both with fireplaces and oversized windows. These rooms are perfect for large or small gatherings. The dining room can seat up to 20 guests with the proper arrangement. Flowing towards the kitchen through a well-planned butler's pantry one will be amazed at the sheer size of the kitchen. This is a chef's delight with a gas cooktop and built-in Gaggenau steam cooktop, wall oven, microwave and warming drawer along with multiple refrigerators that can handle all of your food and beverage needs. This kitchen was extremely well designed for the true chef with prep areas/cooking stations and oversized serving counters as well as more than enough storage for a large family. There's a large breakfast area with matching stone table overlooking the gardens as well as a well-equipped coffee station and work desk area. To complete the kitchen is a back staircase to the 2nd level and access to the first-floor solarium. The 2nd floor offers a primary suite complete with a large bedroom area, a custom built in dressing area and adjoining bath. There are 3 other bedrooms on this level along with a 3-piece bath and laundry closet. The 3rd floor has an additional 3 large bedrooms, one with an office nook off to the side and a 3-piece hall bath. The current owners have created beautiful gardens rooms with stone pathways in the fenced rear area of the home that include a custom designed grape arbor, fenced in planting beds, a koi pond (with koi) a chicken coup with aviary and a rose garden. There is a garage/carriage house in the rear of the property with access from a rear drive that provides garage parking for 2 cars and driveway parking for an additional 3 cars. There is also a pool on the property tucked off to the side of the rear yard. All of this and within walking distance to stores, shops, restaurants and local houses of worship. And a quick ride into center city or the airport.
