Welcome to one of Gwynedd Valley’s finest estate homes. Once our sellers completed their search for the perfect lot to build their custom retreat, they teamed up with noted architect Rene Hoffman, designer Allison Forbes and the area's premier builder Guidi Homes to create one of the area's finest custom homes. No detail was overlooked in the execution; with the goal of building the perfect retreat designed with family, entertaining and easy everyday living in mind. Tucked away in The Estates of Gypsy Hill, you are met by the sweeping governor’s driveway, meticulous landscaping and a beautiful front entrance. Upon entering the home, you are immediately struck by the abundance of natural light from the sweeping custom grand stair, the spacious open floor plan, and the front to back design. The foyer flows into the adjoining open dining room and large two-story great room accented by multiple Juliet balconies, custom wood beams, custom light fixture, a cut stone fireplace and stone accents. The large custom kitchen is a chef's delight and offers plenty of room to work and entertain with a large center island, high-end appliances, including a large six burner Wolf stove with double oven and griddle, Sub-Zero and wall oven and microwave, and a second counter space between the kitchen and great room offers additional seating. The large morning room offers access to the rear covered porch and views of the pool and rear entertainment spaces. In between the kitchen and dining room is the large custom butler’s pantry with ice maker, ample storage, custom sink, domed ceiling and custom lighting. The rear family entrance offers access from the extra-large three car garage and has a small work station, powder room and a large laundry room. Just off the foyer is a second guest powder room, 3-stop elevator and beautiful home office with coffered ceiling and custom wainscoting. The first-floor primary bedroom is the owners retreat, with an extra high tray ceiling and private access to the rear covered porch and pool area. The owner’s large marble spa bath has a double walk-in shower, soaking tub and custom double vanities. There are two well-appointed walk-in closets just off the owner’s bath. Take the elevator or the grand sweeping stair to the second-floor lounge with wet bar, small refrigerator and custom cabinets. The second-floor lounge and main hall overlook the great room from three beautiful Juliet balconies. The first guest suite has direct access to a large bath with double vanity and access to the hall. There are two additional bedroom suites, each with a private bath, a large walk-in closet for additional seasonal storage, and a large fourth bedroom - currently used as the bunkhouse. The daylight lower level is an entertainer's dream with a large family room, extra-large bar with two beverage refrigerators, wine storage, ice maker, dishwasher, and sink; a billiards room, private gym, game room, dining area, private changing room and cabana bath. Walking out the lower level there is a lower patio with a fire pit and sitting wall, perfect for a nighttime cigar. Just off the kitchen, great room and primary bedroom is the covered porch with heat lamps and steps to the large upper patio with outdoor fireplace and grill area with a Wolf grill, sink and storage. The pool level offers additional seating areas, pool with wading area and hot tub. The private, professionally landscaped grounds with irrigation are meticulously well-kept and offer the perfect setting for everyday family living and large-scale entertaining. No detail was overlooked in the completion of this custom estate home, and there are too many custom details to list each one. Located in the heart of Gwynedd Valley with access to local trails and parks. This property is just a short drive to local shopping, dining, and a nearby Whole Foods, while the proximity to public transportation and major roads make this an easy commute to both Center City and New York.
