Working from home has never been easier, but you might have to fight over who gets which one. This house has space for two home offices without sacrificing a bedroomâ€”a custom office on the patio level, and a sunny corner bay window office on the main level behind glass French doors. The patio level office gleams with custom hardwood built-ins, including a six-foot desk with drawers uniquely located on top to keep them out of the way. The office has over 100 linear feet of adjustable bookshelves, 20 linear feet of file cabinets, and a highboy credenza with drawers, cabinets, and pullout workspaces. Itâ€™s all wired with multiple ports for Ethernet and USB, and a separate electric circuit that can accommodate dozens of home office appliances and equipment. The office is currently served by Gigabit FiOS that, when combined with a mesh Wi-Fi, provides high-speed internet to every room in the house. Also on the patio level are a recreation room with a well-maintained custom billiard table and custom lighting, an exercise room, a full bath with custom therapeutic shower, a large multi-purpose room suitable for use as a guest bedroom, media room, or virtual education classroom, and a 275 square foot climate-controlled storage room.
The centerpiece of the open-plan main floor is a high-ceilinged great room with gas fireplace, a sunroom, and kitchen. The walls of windows in the great room and sunroom overlook the patio, forest, butterfly garden, and bird feeders. The south exposure is perfect for nurturing your orchids and other exotic houseplants. The kitchen alone exceeds 300 square feet, not including a huge pantry, and seemingly has acres of meal preparation space. It has a large island with cabinets below, stainless appliances (including a LG French door refrigerator/freezer and Bosch dishwasher), cherry cabinets, and granite countertops throughout. The laundry room, including a gas dryer, is located between the kitchen and the garage. On the front of the house are the dining room and a lovely parlor. The great room, sunroom, parlor, and main-floor office are served by lighted Casablanca or light-capable Emerson fans. Getting to the patio from the main floor could not be easier. Just walk down the cast aluminum spiral staircase, custom-made by The Iron Shop in Broomall, Pennsylvania.
Upstairs are the 400 square foot master bedroom, a 100 square foot tiled master bath with shower, and Jacuzzi tub, plus two walk-in closets. Also on this level are the main bath and three additional bedrooms, one of which has a walk-in closet. Each bedroom has a Casablanca or Emerson lighted fan. The second floor has its own heating and air conditioning zone.
You wonâ€™t worry about leaves clogging the downspouts because youâ€™ll have Gutter Helmets on all the rain gutters. You canâ€™t run out of hot water because youâ€™ll have a Rinnai tankless water heater powered by inexpensive natural gas. Your furnace will provide just the right winter air quality because it has an Aprilaire steam humidifier attached. Thereâ€™s even a second electric panel with loads of spare capacity protected by a whole-house surge protector.
The 2,000+ square foot patio is a work of art. Along its scalloped knee wall are six maple-flame post-mounted Apollo natural gas lanterns, made by Legendary Lighting in Flowood, Mississippi. The patio is shaded by mature elms, river birches, red crepe myrtle, and a lone red maple. Below the patio is a conversational firepit, also supplied with natural gas. The patio and yard have been used for everything from evening refuge, quiet family gatherings, casual social functions to multiple wedding receptions. When the weather is just too nice to work inside, take your laptop outside and work on the patio.
This home has been updated throughout to make it move-in ready. The carpet and paint are both new throughout the house, and the hardwood floors are newly refinished.
