Description

Come home to your breathtaking Blue Bell oasis with verdant grounds and impeccable gardens highlighted by a tranquil one-acre pond with a dock and fountain! The Barn at Walmere, is a renovated stone Bank Barn with a contemporary flair transformed in 1985 into a sophisticated residence with exquisite landscape including lush gardens, an arbor covered walking path, and stable. Located on a 5.89 acre estate in Blue Bell, the barn, built in 1801, was enlarged in 1990 with the conversion of the original silo into four stories of additional space with dramatic views of the natural woodlands. The sensitive restoration has preserved interior stone walls, the silo, and exposed wooden beams which all characterize the open-living concept of this unique home. The sunlit dining area overlooks the woods and leads to a contemporary and spotless kitchen which includes a Sub-Zero refrigerator, Thermador double convection ovens, two sink locations, and spacious storage and counters. From the kitchen, enter the main level of the preserved silo through French doors to the Family Room to enjoy at your leisure with a spectacular view of the gardens. A spiral staircase within the silo will take you to an exercise room, full bath, and a loft to complete the unique four floors. Return to the main floor of the home where it would be a pleasure to entertain in the welcoming living room with its wood-burning fireplace and deck which boasts another stunning panoramic view of the gardens and pond. Conveniently work from home in either the main floor office, or upper den office area. The first floor Master Suite features two expansive walk in closets, a luxurious bath which includes dual sinks, Jacuzzi tub and indoor and outdoor showers. The outdoor shower is located on a deck outside the Master bedroom and overlooks the privacy of woods. As we continue, another circular staircase leads to the second level consisting of two bedrooms, a full bathroom and the upper den area which overlooks the main level vaulted living space. A two zone geothermal HVAC system keeps the home at a consistently comfortable temperature year-round while lessening reliance on fossil fuels. This unique get-away paradise is waiting to be discovered and is ideally located in close proximity to center city Philadelphia, King of Prussia, Pennsylvania Turnpike and Route 202. Access to private aviation at nearby Wings Field is a notable plus.
