We are convinced that Heaven IS in fact a place on Earth because we found it at 1528 Spring Mill Road in Gladwyne! This 4-bedroom, 3.5 bathroom, expanded Craftsman style home can be found on a secluded .88 acres directly across the street from Philadelphia Country Club's 9th fairway and with easy access to major transportation routes. From the circular driveway, a flagstone walk leads to a vaulted covered entryway that greets you at the main entrance and you will note that the current owners have chairs placed in the front lawn to take full advantage of the peaceful views in front of the home. This dreamy home also enjoys unobstructed vistas from the rear yard to the neighboring 5-acre horse farm. It's an added bonus when relaxing on the rear patio featuring a wisteria-covered pergola. Adding to the extensive renovation that was done in 2007, the house is fully networked and "smart" enabled, including electric car charging outlets in the two-car garage. A 2-story reception hall with hardwood floors will welcome you into the home and lead you into an open floor plan that is flooded by natural light and is just perfect for entertaining. The living room is spacious and offers magnificent views of the aforementioned golf course. Besides the amazing views, the focal point of the living room is the double-sided fireplace that also serves the adjacent family room that is accessed by two sets of French doors and features a gorgeous vaulted, beamed ceiling and a full wall of built-in bookcases and cabinetry, perfect for displaying your artwork and treasures. The family room also offers those stunning views of the golf course we keep talking about, and because it is open to the breakfast room area with access to the rear of the home, you are also able to enjoy the wonderful views of the beautiful, mature cherry trees in the back yard. The kitchen is next to the breakfast area and is home to cherry wood cabinetry, hardwood flooring, granite counters, a tiled backsplash, and stainless-steel appliances, including a double wall oven and a 6-burner gas range. Beyond the kitchen and adjacent to the foyer and living room is a formal dining room and a bonus room that is currently set up as a game room but could easily be the perfect spot for a piano. A comfortable guest room with a hall bath is conveniently located on the first level. The master "down" en-suite features a gas fireplace, walk-in closet, and a luxurious en-suite bath and, you guessed it, golf course views! The main level also features a home office, a laundry room, and an enviable mud room with a powder room and access to the 2-car garage. The 2nd level of this home is accessed via a gorgeous architecturally distinctive staircase. An open hallway overlooks the first floor and is kept company by 2 bedrooms, a second bonus room (w/ 4 newly replaced skylights), a hall bath, and a large hallway room/study with triple windows to the rear. The wonderful and envious neighborhood surrounding this home is just up the street from the Riverbend Environmental Center, and the community has a robust social calendar: Neighborhood summer BBQs, a huge Halloween block party, Christmas Eve visits from Santa from atop the local fire engine - we could go on and on and on. Wait! We almost forgot to mention the front row seats you will have to the most spectacular 4th of July fireworks display you could ever want to see! Heaven, right? And, we haven't even mentioned the new roof that was installed in July of this year, Phantom screens for the French doors, new Pella windows, the outdoor irrigation system, or the cupola-topped shed with solar lighting. The icing on the cake is the quick access to I-76, 476, the Turnpike, GREAT schools, and award-winning dining and shopping all within reach. What are you waiting for? Pick up the phone and give us a call. This one will not last!
