Welcome to the most charming Carriage House located in the coveted North Villanova Estate area on a private beautifully landscaped lot. This exceptional property seamlessly marries stately old-world charm with contemporary amenities, creating a residence of unparalleled timeless allure. The current owners enlisted the expertise of Studio Agoos Lovera architects for an extensive renovation and addition. The end result was a seamless integration of modern conveniences into the historic framework of the 1938 built carriage home while preserving its heritage and enhancing its livability. Studio Agoos Lovera features this home in their portfolio and states the following: âThis project involved renovations and additions to an historic carriage house in suburban Philadelphia. New construction included a family room, kitchen, playroom, and home theater, as well as a garage with guest apartment above connected to the main house by a breezeway. Renovations included conversion of the former kitchen space to a formal dining room and the complete renovation of the master bedroom suite. The design of the house was influenced greatly by the historical significance of the existing structure, and was required to comply with local historic ordinance requirementsâ. Recognized by the Historic Architectural Review Board, Lower Merion and awarded the prestigious Historic Preservation Award in 2009, this home stands as a testament to architectural excellence. This charming red brick carriage house boasts an exceptional open floor plan, flooded with natural light and adorned with architectural details throughout. Enter the property through a tree lined drive and brick walled courtyard entrance with attached 2 car garage addition, adjoining glass enclosed breezeway, and a cupola on the cedar shake roof that features a horse weathervane. The front door opens into a foyer showcasing slate floors, a brick and beadboard wall, barn doors and hinged barn windows used in horse stables as feeding troughs. The entrance just oozes charm. These features are also found in the breezeway addition connecting the mud room to the garage with an apartment above. Back inside the large kitchen, that was part of the home addition, features a beamed, wood ceiling in white, a center island, breakfast nook and a two sided brick fireplace. On the other side of the fireplace, step down to the family room addition with glass windows/doors on 3 sides, beamed vaulted white ceilings, brick walls and wood floors and the 2 sided fireplace. Doors open to a large patio overlooking the landscaped yard. Also part of the addition, a playroom/office adjoins the kitchen. Completing the addition on the main floor is the mudroom with custom built- ins, a walk-in pantry with refrigerator, and laundry room. The original portion of the home includes the formal dining room that was converted from the previous kitchen, the living room with a full wet bar area, the library/office, a sunroom with walls of windows on three sides and a full bathroom. Ascend one of two stairwells to the second floor that features a renovated primary suite with ensuite bath. 3 additional bedrooms and 2 additional bathrooms are found on this level. The lower level renovation showcases a movie theater room, perfect for relaxing nights at home as well as an exercise room. The above-garage apartment addition offers accommodations for guests or family and includes 1 bedroom, 1 full bathroom and a kitchenette. This one acre property offers a level lot, open play areas, gardens, mature trees, and privacy, all located in a walkable neighborhood. Enjoy proximity to the renowned Lower Merion Township public schools and esteemed private schools in the area. Area dining and shopping is just minutes away.
