180 GRUBB RD,
A whole-house renovation in 2015 transformed this classic colonial into the fresh, move-in ready home you'll find today! Updates in the last five years include a new roof, Pella windows throughout, new zoned HVAC, stunning hand-scraped hardwood floors (all three levels), freshly updated baths and a gorgeous custom kitchen, an expanded family room, new laundry/ mudroom, a re-designed master suite and renovated master bath. Nestled on 2.5 acres with peaceful wooded views, this home's traditional exterior styling evokes the charm and understated elegance of Willistown. Enter through the garden gate and you'll be greeted by a gracious curved flagstone walkway and welcoming covered front porch. Inside you'll find over 3,700 square feet of flexible living space on three levels, including a finished, daylight walk-out basement. The dining room and kitchen were opened as part of the 2015 renovation, creating a large, sunny and inviting space for friends and family to gather. The chef's kitchen boasts custom cabinetry (dovetail construction with inset panels and undermount lighting), high-end gas appliances (SubZero and Wolfe), a cozy window seat, large center island with six-burner gas range, double ovens, a Kohler apron-front farmhouse-style sink, and even a convenient beverage fridge. The countertops are gorgeous brushed cianitus granite from Brazil, highlighted by textured copper and iron veins - stunning and easy care! The expanded Great Room features a built-in TV/ entertainment cabinet (with storage), gas fireplace, a sunny picture window and oversized bay-window overlooking the backyard and deck. You'll love the functional utility of the new mudroom/ laundry room adjacent to the kitchen. With inside access to the attached 2-car garage as well as the back deck and yard, practical and stylish tile flooring (with the look of antique Chester County brick), and two large closets - you'll have plenty of space to organize your busy life and neatly store coats, boots, backpacks, sports bags - and jumbo rolls of paper towels too! The laundry area features painted upper and lower cabinets, soap-stone countertops and a deep laundry sink (newer front-loading washer and dryer included). Also on the main level is a gracious living room with recessed lighting and a wood-burning fireplace (flanked by traditional built-ins), a fashionably updated powder room, and two more large closets. Upstairs, the master bedroom was redesigned to include a raised ceiling and "His and Her" walk-in closets with barn-style wood doors and custom built-ins. The master bathroom has been fully updated with an enlarged shower stall and double sink vanity with marble top. Three other bedrooms (all with hardwood floors and ceiling fans), an updated hall bath (with tiled tub/shower and double sink vanity), plus a large linen closet complete the second level. The finished lower level has a new powder room and plenty of finished space for a home gym, children's playroom, or even a virtual learning center. Walk-out from the lower level to the covered flagstone terrace and fenced back yard with plenty of flat, grassy space for a sports equipment or a playset. Stone and boulder retaining walls accent lovely perennial gardens that bring three-season blooms. A large deck on the main level offers more outdoor living and entertaining space - this is the perfect spot to enjoy sunset views overlooking the private, wooded back property. Recent improvements also include conversion from oil to propane for HVAC and cooking, connection to public sewer, a newer well-water system, and whole-house generator that will keep your mind at ease during winter storms. This quintessential Malvern property is a MUST SEE. Interior photos coming soon!
