This newer, stone manor house is located on 1.2+ professionally landscaped and fenced acres in the Merion Golf neighborhood of Haverford Township.

The property takes full advantage of its southern exposure to offer sunlight throughout the day in a serene, natural setting that has complete privacy.

This 10,000+ square foot home has graciously scaled rooms, 10+-foot ceiling heights on four levels, with a transverse floor-plan, numerous walls of windows, including deep-siled windows, tall doors and arched doorways, extensive crown molding and wainscoting, site-finished hardwood floors, designer-sourced fixtures and imported marbles and granites.

The 3-story 6+-bedroom, 7-1/2 bath home is accessed via lit stone piers and a Belgium block lined drive.

Flagstone stairs and a columned portico lead to a grand 2-story entrance hall with flared staircase and windowed landing.

Off the entrance hall are a formal living room with marble gas fireplace and built-ins and a large formal dining room with adjoining butler’s pantry.

There is a large, custom-painted paneled library with beamed ceiling and built-in bookshelves.

The sun-drenched family room with Vaulted Ceiling and limestone gas fireplace opens to the kitchen . The kitchen has white maple cabinetry and all Viking professional appliances.

The kitchen is further enriched by an open breakfast area, walk-in pantry closet and access to the outdoor terrace with central line-fed gas grill and hot tub.
