âThe Orchardâ is a great American house. This classic Colonial Revival estate, designed by architect John Graham, was built in 1916 for the Wetherill family. The pedigree of this architectural masterpiece has been documented in Town & Country magazine in June of 1919 and in the book âImportant American Housesâ by Keefe in 1922. Every inch of the original paneling and millwork is perfectly preserved, and every square foot feels fresh and ready for 21st-century living. Its well-preserved detail is evident from the moment one approaches the front door where incised woodwork surrounds the transom and sidelight windows. Inside, gracious proportions and timeless craftsmanship are built into every room. The breathtaking staircase in the entrance hall with its massive Baccarat chandelier is a triumph. Grand, sun-filled galleries lead to a series of elegant yet comfortable rooms. The flow of the home is ideal for entertaining, and there are expansive terraces for indoor-outdoor parties as well as an oversized heated pool/spa and pool house, magical for summer gatherings. The dining room features its original antique Zuber mural,âViews of North America,â painstakingly restored to its original splendor. This mural predates the exact copy that First Lady Jackie Kennedy had installed in the Diplomatic Room of the White House in 1961. The eat-in kitchen accommodates multiple work areas, a 48â Viking range and plenty of storage. The details, including the millwork and built-ins, throughout all of the main rooms are stunning. There are nine original fireplaces, enchanting on a winterâs evening. The main bedroom suite is a spacious retreat with a fireplace, a veranda and a sitting room. There are 5 additional bedrooms and 4 full baths. For those who seek home office space, or homework areas, a fitness or yoga room, billiards or other game rooms, The Orchard will accommodate those needs and more. The original staff quarters have later been used as a nanny and in-law suite, and this space offers these possibilities and more. With a stately presence surrounded by acres of greenspace and native stone hardscaping, The Orchard is a residence youâll appreciate each time you come home.
