Nestled in the embrace of time-honored trees in the heart of Blue Bell, offering unparalleled views of permanently conserved open space with horse & walking trails, and once the site of George Washington's encampment, this completely renovated 5 bedroom, 7 bath Stone Colonial stands as a testament to timeless elegance & meticulous craftsmanship. Every element of this extraordinary home, originally built in 1910, from the gleaming new hardwood floors, to the spectacular kitchen & gorgeous en-suite Baths, has been reimagined and transformed while still blending seamlessly with its history & character. Everything is new, including the walls, windows, doors, electrical system, HVAC, tankless hot water heater, septic system, plumbing & lighting fixtures and more. Perhaps the crowning jewel of this renovated gem is its addition, an attached 3-car garage w/rooms above, designed to complement rather than compete by successfully enhancing the home's functionality while preserving its historic charm. A long tree-lined private lane leads to the newly created, walled courtyard entrance. The 12" thick stone walls, cedar shake roof, copper gutters, deep windowsills, arched doorways & 9' 1st floor ceilings preserve the home's integral character. 2 separate entrances include a custom solid mahogany front door opening to the center hall with a curved 3-story staircase whispering stories of the past. The center hall provides a breathtaking front-to-back view of the rear grounds through the impressive floor-to-ceiling rear French doors that extend across the Living & Dining Rms. The meticulously created Kitchen is a work of art where every detail of this extraordinary culinary space has been carefully crafted, including quartz counters, farm sink, stunning tiled backsplash, commercial range, 1 of 2 dishwashers, furniture-style refrigerator & freezer, expansive center island w/walnut butcher block counter w/seating for 4 & bar w/wine refrigerator. Enjoy the cuisine in the adjacent Dining Rm while basking in the warmth of the gas fireplace. The ease of entertaining is enhanced by the adjacent Butler's Pantry with 2nd dishwasher, 2nd sink & walls lined w/custom cabinetry. The incredibly spacious Living Rm features the 2nd gas fireplace & offers the opportunity for multiple seating areas. A connecting Study provides one of the most spectacular views of the exterior. The 2 Powder Rms are simply gorgeous. Completing this level is a spacious Mud Room. 2 sets of stairs provide access to the 2nd floor. Pure luxury awaits in the Primary Suite with/walk-in, professionally organized closet & a sensational Full Bath w/radiant heated floor, stand-alone tub, double vanities w/quartz counters & & spa-worthy walk-in shower w/glass wall. 3 additional bedrooms & en-suite baths are equally impressive, each offering its own unique blend of comfort & style. A separate Family Rm on this level offers options for Media or Recreation, & the Laundry Rm includes a washer, dryer, utility sink & custom cabinetry. Continuing to the 3rd level will reveal 1 charming Bedrm & a Gym, sharing a stunning Full Bath. Doors from every 1st floor room provide access to the grounds, where nature takes center stage, w/conserved space providing a backdrop of lush greenery as far as the eye can see. Whether reading a book on the stone terrace or brick patio or barbecuing at the outdoor kitchen, the views are breathtaking and private. Horse lovers will have the added bonus of access to the Green Ribbon trail. Other significant features include Sonos system w/speakers in every room, a security system & backup generator. This special retreat is 5 minutes to the charming shops & restaurants of Ambler & close to multiple train stations w/easy access to center city Phila.
