Historic Hillhouse epitomizes old-time elegance redesigned with openness and amenities for gracious modern living and entertaining. Built by prominent Philadelphia lawyer George Pepper in 1927, this recently restored and updated majestic manor home is located on four and a half idlic acres with expansive views bordering horse pastures. Enchanting from the moment you pull up the drive, the grand 5,500 square foot flagstone courtyard is adorned by ivy draped stone walls. Once inside, the wide foyer opens to an oversized formal living room featuring 10' ceilings with floor-to-ceiling windows, a prominent fireplace, and French doors to the stunning terraces and private gardens. The first floor features two wings, one offering a spacious family room with a wet bar, billiard space, fireplace and a gorgeous cathedral ceiling. The other wing features an elegant formal dining room that seats over 20 guests. The adjacent updated chef's kitchen has a breakfast room, pantry, command center and a fireside keeping room/TV area. All first floor rooms open onto the spacious back patio and gardens which lead to a separate private pool area. There is not a room in the
house that is not graced with lovely leafy outlooks. Ascend a curved staircase to a tranquil and private master suite which features a dressing room with his and her closets, updated luxurious Carrara marble bath and a meditation/sitting room with access to a balcony with stairs to the terrace. Down the hall is a bonus family room, laundry and four spacious ensuite bedrooms with walk-in closets. Charming architectural details abound including windows, millwork and floors. Adjacent lot is subdivided with plans for a Pohlig custom-built home. However, seller is willing to entertain serious offers to purchase-with the manor home. Recent appraisal for both was $3.6M. Amenities on adjacent lot include more than 2 picturesque acres with a four-stall, split door two-story horse barn, storage/utility building and original stone incinerator. Excellent location close to fine dining and shopping on the Main Line. Renowned Tredyffrin/Easttown schools and private academies. Minutes from the Paoli Septa/Amtrak station with service to New York City in 1 3/4 hours or 2 1/2 hours to Washington DC.
