Property Description

This beautiful and stately stone home on Copples Lane has spanned over two centuries of Pennsylvania history and is absolutely breathtaking. Originally part of the Thomas Leiper Farm, the main part of this home was built from gorgeous local field stone in 1802. With 6 bedrooms and nearly 4,500 square feet of exceptional living space, the sellers have preserved the historic beauty of the home while providing many updates which add to its comfort and functionality. Upon entering this STUNNING 1.45 acre property, you will find glorious mature trees, an abundance of blooming perennials and gardens at every turn, lavish professional landscaping, large open spaces for soccer, lacrosse or hide and seek, stone paths, soaring lampposts and the perfect setting for entertaining and private relaxation. Enter through the stone patio and be welcomed into a generous Living Room featuring oversized windows, a handsome painted brick fireplace, oversized glass doors with transom windows which open to the incredible Screened-in Porch, and a quarter turn staircase with landing providing vantage points to both the living and dining room. The elegant step-down formal Dining Room is filled with detailed molding, beautiful views of the side yard and features a wood burning fireplace with brick surround. Just off the Dining Room is a convenient Mudroom with large pantry, Powder Room, Laundry and easy access to the charming Detached two car Garage and former Caretakers Cottage (which is now used for storage). There is also access to the large gourmet Kitchen which features exposed brick, updated stainless appliances (Dacor oven, Fisher and Paykel DW), huge pantry, gorgeous cherry cabinets and breakfast eating area. Off the living room, walk through the handsome Study/Library, which also has access to the expansive screened-in porch and kitchen providing excellent flow, into the sensational step-down Family Room wing, which was added in 1928. This fabulous room is incredible and features an oversized fireplace and custom built-ins including a dry bar, doors to the spacious and elegant stone patio for seamless outdoor entertaining, another impressive staircase, beautiful views and leads to the fully functional office, with separate outside entrances, offering endless possibilities for work or study at home. The second floor of this home is equally remarkable. The Main Bedroom is bright and airy with windows on three sides, an ensuite Bathroom and generous closet space. There are five additional ample sized Bedrooms, each with charming attributes, two of which share a jack and jill Bathroom and there is also a hall Bathroom. The 3rd floor features two additional Bonus Rooms, plus a full Bathroom and could easily serve as an Au-Pair or In Law Suite, art studio or playroom area. With immaculate attention to detail throughout, an absolutely gorgeous setting and in an ideal location close to Wallingford Swarthmore Schools, train station to Philadelphia, PHL Airport and moreā€¦this well-appointed and exceptionally maintained home is available for the first time in 40 years (!) and is truly a once in a lifetime opportunity not to be missed!
