Welcome to Casa Mura, a John Simon Sabatino original design built In 1989. Included in this sale is the adjacent lot of 178 Hillcrest to give you over an acre of privacy and a wonderful driveway connector from Bells Mill Road to Hillcrest Avenue. Sabatino built this house for himself amid the ruins of a former mansion. It features award-winning gardens and celebrates the architect's love of art and natural light. His vision lives on with the current owners who make sure art, light and nature meld inside and out. The home is designed for living and entertaining mostly on the main floor. The front door, located within the walled garden, opens up to a welcoming, two-story entry foyer with hand-laid marble floor that accesses the large living room with fireplace, beautiful dining room with door to a screened porch (also connected to the living room), family room with fireplace, and a hall leading to the primary bedroom suite with walk-in closets and full marble bathroom. All rooms offer either doors to the outside or large windows bringing the outside in. The spacious kitchen connects to the family room, dining room, laundry room and garage. Up a grand staircase, two additional bedrooms and a study/bedroom await. The basement is partially finished and the property is planted with specimen plantings, perennial flower beds and a stunning western facing arbor full of lavender, rosemary, climbing roses, Russian sage, butterfly bushes and more plants to delight the senses. Casa Mura is across the street from the Morris Arboretum, the state arboretum of Pennsylvania, and minutes from Fairmount Park, the shops and restaurants of Chestnut Hill, Septa's Chestnut Hill East and West train stations and the Blue Route and Pennsylvania turnpike.
