Welcome to 1264 Mill Road...a true one of a kind mini estate blending charm and sophistication with old world elegance. Designed by Horace Trumbauer, this unique carriage house built in 1907, was the "stable" that accompanied an estate that was located some 400 yards away toward Susquehanna Road. Nestled at the end of a long private driveway, this stone masterpiece sits on 1.78 acres of professionally landscaped lush grounds featuring a magnificently renovated pool complete with waterfall. The peaceful setting and the sound of the waterfall is sure to mesmerize you!! A large light filled foyer welcomes you, where you can see the rear grounds immediately come into view. What a treat to see the gorgeous expanse of the grounds from the moment you enter the house. French doors in the foyer lead out to lovely patio...the perfect place to dine al fresco and celebrate life's occasions. To the left of the foyer walk through a lovely library/sitting area with custom built ins. Incredible living room with handsome inlaid hardwood floors, recessed lighting and fireplace. Handsome alcove exit to the side grounds. Huge elegant library/office with walls of windows and a brick floor. Step out to either of the two patios. Take the steps up to the left wing, to the lovely owners suite consisting of a light-filled bedroom with lots of builtins and recessed lighting, a full bathroom with soaking tub, double sinks and brand new tiled stall shower. Another large room is currently used as a walk in closet with built-ins galore!! Could easily be used as a bedroom. Hall closets and great storage adorn this wing. To the right of the entry foyer is another incredible wing. Step down to a dramatic and large formal dining room elegant enough to entertain Royalty. Entertaining is all yours with this incredible floor plan!!! This leads to an incredible family room addition with a cathedral ceiling accented by handsome wood beams. An exposed stone wall and the wood-burning fireplace make this the "go to" gathering spot!! Walls of windows allow you to take in the incredible views of the rear grounds. French doors lead out to a private large deck with a recessed hot tub. Updated kitchen with center island, granite counter tops and ample custom cabinetry. Double ovens and plenty of amenities to assist the chef!! A very charming breakfast room is attached. A bonus room next to the kitchen serves as an art room/playroom or anything you need. Loads of closets. Full bathroom (shower currently not working). Head downstairs to a lovely media room where you can chill and watch movies on the screen! The laundry facilities are also housed on this level. Within this wing there is an impressive turned staircase where an elegant and spacious powder room lives right underneath. Take the stairs up and you will find two lovely bedrooms, both bright with great architectural details. A newer beautifully tiled hall bathroom services the two bedrooms. Generous closets abound. The rear basements house different rooms which are all very accessible and usable. One is used as a home gym, one used for storage which is plentiful. A wonderful surprise is the changing room/full bathroom with beautiful tile work reminiscent of a European resort. Perfect for family and friends while enjoying the gorgeous pool and the beautiful outdoor space!! There is a carport for two cars. To say that this property is unique and incredibly special would be an over simplification. If you are looking for old world elegance combined with a modern flair...look no further!! This wondrous setting, in the heart of Rydal, offers a respite from the hustle and bustle. Yet you are a quick 15 minute walk to Septa's Meadowbrook Station, and minutes to favorites like Trader Joe's and Whole Foods. Abington/Jefferson Hospital and CHOP Specialty Care Center are located very close by. Walking trails are yours to enjoy in nearby Lorimer Park. Don't wait.
