SHOWINGS START AT THE OPEN HOUSE ON SUNDAY 10/24 FROM 1 to 3. Wonderful mid-century Traditional Stone Colonial in desirable Foxcroft Community. Do not miss this beautiful and versatile property. A total of 5 bedrooms and 4.1 baths including a large, separate in-law/guest apartment that is incorporated into the house through an addition in 1990. The apartment has a large Living Room/Great Room, a sizeable 2 story Dining Room, a full kitchen with eat-in counter, a full bath with tub/shower combination, and dramatic spiral staircase leading to a second floor bedroom/office loft which remarkably overlooks the 2 story Dining Room and 2 stories of windows. The apartment is accessed from the main house through doorways on the first and second floors, and also through glass paned French doors off the rear patio. This addition provides incredible versatility to the house and property, for both living possibilities and entertaining. The original section of the house was finely crafted in 1947 through developer A. Atwater Kent with real stone walls in almost all areas. There are four additional bedrooms and 3.1 baths in this section. The front door enters to a central hallway which leads to a beautiful formal living room with gas fireplace (can be converted back to wood burning if desired) and charming wainscoting throughout. There is an office off the hallway which includes a half bath within. To the right, the hallway leads into the large and lovely Dining Room with chair rail and crown molding trim as well as a built in corner hutch. The dining room opens into the kitchen which has stainless steel appliances, an island with Sicilian marble top and seating for at least 4, a side prep area, and matching white hutch for additional storage. The kitchen is open to the family room addition with gas fireplace (can be converted back to wood burning if desired) a wall of windows facing the rear patio and gardens, and a vaulted ceiling. There are glass paned French doors leading to the patio and a glassed paned door leading to the mudroom with terra cotta floor and door to the side yard. The mudroom also has a doorway to the garage. The second floor is accessed by an oak staircase which leads to the upper floor hallway. To the rear is a large bedroom with its own en-suite remodeled full bath and doorway to the rear stairs which lead to the kitchen. This is a great guest room or au-pair suite. The hallway leads to two additional bedrooms which share a remodeled Jack & Jill bath with a large walk-in shower. There is also an entrance door here leading to a loft overlooking the family room which can be used as an office /study area. The last room off of the hallway is a beautiful Main Bedroom with classic trim, a Walk-In-Closet, and remodeled full bath with large walk-in-shower and a soaking/jet tub. There is also a doorway off of the Main Bedroom leading to the apartment loft. The hallway also has access to the walk-up attic which is floored for additional storage. The lower level includes a finished area game room, the laundry room, a work room with a large built in work bench, and the utility room. The rear exterior has multi-level flagstone patios for entertaining and beautiful gardens with specimen plantings throughout. There is a large, flat yard with plenty of room for play and summer entertainment. Off to the rear is an inground pool and pool house (neither were used for the past 2-3 years and need full servicing) which are being sold “as-is”. Do not miss this wonderful house and property with a multi use attached apartment and an au-pair suite. Terrific location with entertainment and restaurants within walking distance, easy access to Blue Route, a quick ride to Pa Turnpike, Rt 95 and Blue Route, nearby Country Clubs, Swim Club, and Airport is 20 minutes away. There is even nearby trout fishing!
