This grand stone colonial on one of Wynnewood's most coveted streets is on the market for the first time in fifty years. Originally called "Sunnylawn" by its first owners, the house is a beautiful example of classic Main Line architecture. Built circa 1900, the house is large enough for entertaining in a grand style, and yet provides a sense of warmth and continuity that newer homes often lack. Set on one of the largest lots in the neighborhood, this 3-story house with 7 bedrooms and 4.5 baths includes a separate au pair/in-law suite complete with bedroom, sitting room, a second full kitchen and full bath. Please note that some images are photorealistic renderings provided by Studio 882, and are intended give buyers a sense of the possibilities.
Wide center hall with turned staircase opens to large living room on the left with wood-burning fireplace. French doors from living room open to side porch and expansive lawn, which has hosted weddings, receptions and large parties for years. To the right is the large dining room with a second wood-burning fireplace. Spacious kitchen with breakfast nook. A generous den overlooking the pool was added to the house 50 years ago. Mudroom/laundry room completes the first level.
Main staircase takes you to the second level. The carpeting has been removed from most of the second and third floors, revealing beautifully refinished hardwood floors. Much of the wallpaper has also been removed, and those walls have been repainted in neutral colors.
The primary bedroom is in the front corner of the house and has a third wood-burning fireplace and a Jack-and-Jill bath connecting to a second large bedroom. Au-pair suite is also accessible from this level, although the suite has its own private staircase accessible from the mudroom. A fourth bedroom completes the second level.
The third level offers three additional bedrooms and hall bath, as well as a large attic for storage. The original call bells that were installed for the household staff are still in the attic, although they are currently covered.
The house has an attached garage, which is currently used to store lawn equipment and outdoor furniture. An additional detached two-car garage has a floored second level for additional living space or storage.
In-ground pool is surrounded by new fencing, and has a new heater and refurbished filter.
New roof (2022). House has been completely rewired (2022). New waste pipe installed from the house to the street, and new driveway installed (2022).
Walk to Arnold Field and Lower Merion High School, as well as the R5 train station to Center City, Whole Foods and Starbucks. Quick commute to University City and Philadelphia International Airport.
If you are looking for a place to build memories with your loved ones, and create a legacy that will last for years, make sure you see this house. They aren't building these anymore!
