Property Description

This property includes the Grand Main House and a Charming Cottage--presenting the perfect opportunity for extended family, long term guests, or au pair quarters--whatever best suits your needs. Offering the refined charm of an estate home built in 1939, the current owners extensively remodeled and updated both the interior and exterior of the Main House (including a slate roof) in 2003-2004 before taking residence.  The finishes were tastefully enhanced and the house was also made substantially larger with an addition that provided space to add a fabulous open concept Family Room and Kitchen, expansion of the Formal Dining Room, and room for a spacious Primary Bedroom and luxurious Primary Bath.  Any discerning buyer will marvel at the skill of the artisans who created the exquisite paneling and intricate ceiling design in the Living Room, Entryway and Dining Room.  The sumptuous Family Room with fireplace and coffered ceiling, Informal Eating Area and exquisite gourmet Kitchen are indications of the desire of the current owners to make living in this home a genuine pleasure.  In addition to the spacious Primary Suite there are 3 Bedrooms, each with its own character and delightful features such as arched windows, eyebrow windows, built-ins, and impressive tree top views that provide a sense of peace and tranquility.  There is also an exceptional Office with a private Half Bath.  The Office could be used as a quiet retreat or be easily utilized as a Fifth Bedroom. Even the Laundry Room is a space that is so inviting you will actually enjoy being there! The Lower Level provides an unexpected delight with a Second Family Room (perhaps you desire an amazing man cave?) with radiant heated floors, powder room, gas fireplace, and a substantial lounging area where you can enjoy your favorite sports, movies, or your next Netflix binge!  There is a large wet bar that is well outfitted with a kegerator, dishwasher, microwave and two cooling drawers. Another feature is a Wine Cellar, the perfect place to store and display your favorite vintages.  In addition, the Main House has a 2 Car Attached Garage. When you want to get a breath of fresh air, the gardens will welcome you and offer beauty and serenity.  Just off the spacious slate patio, you'll discover trellised covered steps which lead to the recessed garden where gravel paths beckon you to admire nature's artistry and a handsome fountain in a setting that is ideal for picturesque statuary. The other end of this breathtaking outdoor expanse leads you to a path where you will encounter the most charming Cottage you will ever hope to find!  The large Great Room with beamed ceiling features a huge fireplace with gas logs, paneling and gorgeous wide plank pine flooring.  For convenience, there is a Powder Room on the first floor as well. The Cottage has been updated with a Kitchen renovation and the installation of central air conditioning. Upstairs you will find Three Bedrooms and a Full Bathroom. The Cottage also enjoys a fenced yard and a detached 2 Car Oversized Garage with pull down steps to added storage space.   This gated estate enjoys complete privacy yet it’s conveniently located--just steps to the bustling and desirable town of Media.  Leave the car at home when you feel like Dining Under the Stars on Wednesday evening in town, as you savor your favorite beverage and cuisine.  Center City Philadelphia, Philly International Airport, and trains are all conveniently located making Bent Road an absolute treasure in an ideal locale!
