Fabulous Walk-to-Wayne location! This beautiful home is located in popular South Wayne, where you can walk to all of the wonderful restaurants and boutiques that downtown Wayne has to offer. As you enter the very chic foyer, you will immediately be amazed by the stunning, professionally decorated rooms decorated by Fuller Interiors. Gorgeous diamond-paned leaded glass windows with deep window sills, intricate millwork, 9 ft. ceilings, and handsome hardwood floors enhance the historical charm of each room. Highlights of the first floor include the Parlor with windows overlooking the covered front porch; the comfortable Living Room with built-in bookshelves and a gas fireplace with a breathtaking hand carved mantle; the expansive Formal Dining Room with oversized windows; and a magnificent Great Room with curved walls, a 30~ vaulted ceiling, tremendous gas fireplace with painted brick surround, custom built-ins and a hand painted floor. The Great Room was an addition built by then-owner Arthur B. Lipkin, who at one time was the youngest member of the Philadelphia Orchestra and first violinist with the ensemble. The Main Line Symphony and Orchestra practiced and performed in this very room! You will notice that the leaded glass windows in the Great Room are adorned with musical symbols. This room is the perfect location for entertaining! Finishing off the first floor is the Butler's Pantry with an abundance of shelving; the Kitchen with white cabinetry and stainless steel appliances including a new dishwasher and sink; a cozy Sitting Room off of the Kitchen; and a Powder Room. The second floor features a large Master Suite with Master Bath, spacious Office/Closet area (which could also be a separate bedroom) and the laundry room. In addition there are two more sizable bedrooms and a hall bath with bathtub. The third floor is home to two more substantial bedrooms, a large full bath with walk-in shower, plenty of closet space, and a small sitting area. In addition to this magnificent home, there is also an adorable 2 BR cottage on the property (attached to the 2 car garage) with a full bath, new kitchen, family room with wood-beamed ceilings and washer/dryer. The flagstone patio overlooks the large, flat back yard. Additional updates include: a NEW ROOF on both the main house and the cottage house (2019), new carpeting in Master Suite (2019), upgraded WiFi system throughout the house, new security system, and the entire interior of the home has been recently painted. Located in the award winning Radnor school district with convenient access to Philadelphia via the highway and the train. Entrenched in history, this house has so many amazing stories to tell. The classical home was designed by esteemed Philadelphia architect William Lightfoot Price and built in 1894 by developers Wendell & Smith. The architectural integrity of the home has been lovingly maintained by its various homeowners for more than a century. The current homeowners have brought the home into the 21st century, updating the interior decor and mechanicals while preserving its historical grace and exceptional architectural details. This home is truly sensational!
