Incredible NEW PRICE and opportunity to purchase a piece of Main Line History! Offered for the first time in over 60 years, this stunning estate was built in approx. 1878 for Silas Jones, who resided on the original 90 acre parcel owned by his grandfather Jonathan Jones, who was granted the land from William Penn. The house, constructed of stone, is of Victorian style, with typical architectural elements such as a Mansard roof with dormers, a large wrap around porch and projecting bay windows. A gabled porte cochere welcomed horse drawn carriages when built, and now serves as a circular driveway for modern use. Exquisite features include 10 ft ceilings on the main and second levels, original leaded glass details on some windows, grand entertaining spaces and a dramatic wrap-around front porch overlooking the private grounds. This five bedroom, four full and two half bath home has been meticulously maintained and expanded through the years for modern living. This property is registered as a Class II Historic property with Lower Merion Township. Beautiful original chestnut wide plank floors greet you in the center hall foyer and run throughout most of the main level. To your right sits the study complete with floor to ceiling windows, custom-built mahogany shelving and matching crown and baseboard moldings. The formal dining room sits opposite the study with white painted moldings, floor to ceiling windows with built-in benches & a cozy wood-burning fireplace at the center. A butler’s pantry connects the dining room to the living room, providing an extra serving area for entertaining. The spacious living room features beautiful leaded glass paneled windows, built-in window seating & a wood-burning fireplace tucked away under a graceful archway in the center of the room. The gourmet kitchen was renovated and expanded in approx. 2003 and is the showpiece of the home. A nineteen foot long island runs the length of the kitchen and provides an abundance of storage along with hosting both counter height & bar height seating. The painted wooden cabinetry is complemented by black and white tile flooring, light granite countertops, two large stainless steel refrigerators, a gas range, double wall ovens, and two dishwashers. The tile flooring flows into the oval shaped great room at the end of the kitchen which is flooded with natural light from the french doors and Palladian-style windows. A large laundry room is located off of the kitchen with washer, dryer, sink and folding area. Additionally, there is a half bath located within the laundry area. The second floor hosts the primary suite with high ceilings and a wood-burning fireplace. The Palm Springs spa-inspired ensuite boasts dual vanities, a large jetted soaking tub, and a glass-enclosed stall shower, all highlighted by beautiful tiling and detailed moldings. There is a large home office boasting an oversized bay window situated behind the primary bedroom. Just beyond the office area is a second level addition currently used as an entertaining space with three elevations of windows, vaulted ceilings, skylights, and a custom-built full wet bar. A secondary ensuite bedroom rounds out the second floor, and boasts high ceilings, ample closet space, and an abundance of natural light. The third level hosts three additional spacious bedrooms, as well as two full bathrooms and a hall closet. There are numerous outdoor entertaining areas including a large stone terrace overlooking the private backyard area. There's an in-ground pool with surrounding brick patio, surrounded by mature trees and the ultimate in luxurious privacy on the Main Line. Since the property is a Class II Historic site, the zoning allows for limited commercial use. The home may be used for a professional office space with up to 8 visits per day. Create the Bed & Breakfast or AirBNB of your dreams with up to 5 guest suites. For any commercial use within this residential historic zoning, the home must be owner-occupied.
