Property Description

Builder offering customization credit of $200,000 applied at buyer's direction. Buyer enjoys builder's wholesale pricing. Braebank, a quintessential Walter Durham Country Estate, seamlessly blends old world architectural charm with luxurious modern amenities. Extensively renovated and meticulously redesigned interiors of approximately 9,000 sq ft were recently completed by a well-respected Main line builder specializing in period and historic renovations. Majestically situated on 6.3 acres, the breathtaking estate grounds feature stately mature trees, specimen plantings, flagstone terraces and gazebo. The sparkling pool has a 10-person spa with waterfall feature that creates a peaceful oasis for recreation, relaxation, or entertainment. The property is accessed through automated gates which open to the circular driveway, large stone walled motor court leading to the attached 5-car garage. The slate roof, copper gutters, and original stone walls reflect the grandeur and craftsmanship of a bygone era. You will find spectacular views of different areas of the property from many rooms of the home. The reception hall features original hardwood flooring, an elegant, curved staircase and an exquisite Schoenbeck crystal chandelier. A grand-scaled Walter Durham living room has windows on three exposures, a stunning gas fireplace, original built-ins and multiple sets of doors that open onto the large flagstone terrace. A mahogany library/home office is highlighted by a fireplace, cabinetry, and doors to the terrace. An expansive dining room includes decorative moldings and bay window. The meticulously renovated gourmet kitchen is appointed with custom white shaker style cabinetry, quartz countertops, premium stainless-steel appliances, and a center island with counter seating. The adjacent breakfast room has a vaulted ceiling, skylights and glass paneled double doors that open to the rear. With its vaulted ceiling and exposed trusses, fireplace with floor-to-ceiling stone surround, Palladian window, the family room is architecturally stunning. Uniquely, each room on the first floor provides convenient access to the flagstone terrace that wraps around the rear of the home and provides captivating views of the park like setting. A private sanctuary, the primary suite has a vaulted ceiling, gas fireplace, extra-large custom walk-in closet and luxurious primary bathroom equipped with a soaking tub, glass enclosed shower, double sink vanity, and radiant heated flooring. A private terrace off the primary suite is a perfect place to read, relax or sip your morning coffee. Two additional en-suite bedrooms offer privacy and plenty of closet space. The remaining two bedrooms are spacious and are served by a jack and jill style bathroom and a homework/study area. A huge bonus room brightened by abundant windows has outside egress and provides endless possibilities depending on your needs. The finished lower level offers more living space and includes a full bathroom. This idyllic retreat makes it easy to forget how close you are to major highways, shopping, dining, and award-winning schools. The owner is in the process of subdividing the property into two separately deeded lots. The proposed plan will result in one parcel of 3.609 acres including the existing renovated Walter Durham stone estate home and a second lot of 2.7 acres which would accommodate a new construction home. The 3.609 acre parcel with estate home may be purchased for $3,845,000. These numbers reflect net acres.
