"Wooded Hill", a quintessential Main Line estate, perfectly combines architectural grandeur with luxurious amenities to create an unrivaled oasis in a coveted Gladwyne location. Tucked away behind stone piers and custom entrance gates, this magazine-worthy residence is majestically sited on nearly 7 acres. The estate grounds feature stately mature trees, specimen plantings, flagstone terraces and a large walled motor court. The 16,410 sq ft main residence has been exquisitely expanded and meticulously renovated to reflect the floor plan and design features sought by modern families; with 8 bedrooms total, including the 2 bedroom apartment. Old world elegance includes handsome millwork, lovely ceiling designs, decorative iron staircase railings, countless French doors, 7 charming fireplaces that have been converted to gas, and the highest-grade fit and finishes. Generous windows throughout brighten the interiors with natural sunlight. The beauty is not just in the details, but on display in every room and out of every window. Some highlights include a Mercer tiled reception hall, grandly proportioned living & dining rooms, a gourmet kitchen with adjacent breakfast room, a sunroom, billiards room, two family rooms and two home offices. A private sanctuary, the luxurious primary bedroom suite includes his and her spa-like baths, a sitting area and is enhanced with a library balcony overlooking a two-story family room. Five other generously sized bedroom suites are beautifully appointed, served by outfitted walk-in closets, upscale private baths and sitting/homework areas. A second floor library/sitting room is an ideal area for homework or relaxation. The expansive day lit, walk-out lower level has a custom home bar, exercise room, home theater with stadium seating, full bathroom and convenient access to the swimming pool and grounds. Accommodations for the staff include a two bedroom suite, living room, kitchen, dining area and bathroom. Additionally, the home offers a full house generator (Cummins 100kw) and a Control 4 smart home system providing convenient management of lighting, music, security, and pool systems. Approached through a stone walled courtyard, the stunning 2 bedroom guest house has been recently renovated with contemporary designer finishes. Breathtaking estate grounds provide endless opportunities for recreation, entertainment or relaxation. You'll enjoy a sparkling swimming pool and nearby pavilion, numerous stone and brick patios offering a variety of commanding viewpoints, enchanting crushed stone pathways and exterior landscape lighting. A substantial level area of the grounds are perfect sports fields, and currently include a golf green plus three separate tee boxes. This idyllic retreat makes it easy to forget how centrally located you are in proximity to Gladwyne Village, King of Prussia, Center City and all major transportation routes.
