Built 1958
This exquisitely renovated architect-designed residence is located in lovely Rydal, Abington Township, Pennsylvania. The space, the finishes, the flow, the light, and the grounds make this one of the most desirable homes in the region. The quality of a property can often be deduced by the number of owners. Fewer owners often means more commitment to the house, and conveys how easily a house accommodates various stages in a homeowner's life there. With only three owners of this mid-century modern classic, since it was designed in 1958, by the acclaimed colleague of Louis Kahn, Irwin (Irving) Maitin, the house has stood the test of time. Privately sited on almost 2 acres, this glass and brick structure reveals itself slowly. Hardly visible from the street, enter a well-landscaped driveway with its stand-alone two-car garage. The front door and the practical kitchen door are conveniently located off the drive. From the front door, the public rooms are to the right. Enter a two-story (20 feet) grand entrance hall with a wall of windows, the open staircase to the second floor. and a stunning slate floor that seems to take on different hues of green or blue depending on the time of day. Conveniently located off the foyer is a formal powder room for guests. The 20-foot ceilings continue into the living room which are vaulted and finished in painted wood; an homage to the country setting. In every room, huge windows, overlooking the landscape, bring the outside in. The focal point of the living room is the hearth wall, built of brick and housing a newer gas-fueled fireplace. Walk up three low-rise steps to the gracious dining room with wood floors and views all around. The furthest room from the front door is the exceptional kitchen, with more than enough room for multiple cooks, family gatherings, kitchen dining, and some soft seating for relaxing after a long day. Less than 7 years old, the kitchen has state of the art appliances, a magnificent island. and adjacent space for relaxing and entertaining. The main bedroom suite, and an additional bedroom en suite, is accessed through a private wing of the residence. Storage and closets are ample. The second floor has 3 bedrooms and a full bath, each with ample closets. The patios, grounds, tennis court, and vistas are outstanding. --
