On sale for only the second time in six decades, this classic stone house in Gladwyne is an opulent mansion that has all the features and charm of a classic farmhouse, writes Esther Yoon for Philadelphia Magazine.

The five-bedroom dwelling is in a two-acre private park-like setting secluded by a sanctuary of trees and beautiful flora. Known as “Valley View,” the 8,000-square-foot home at 1243 Country Club Road in Lower Merion Township is just a short distance from award-winning schools, restaurants, and shopping.

Exquisite detail emphasizes the lavishness of the first-floor with its formal foyer, up-to-date kitchen and formal dining room adorned with a stunning, custom, wall-covering picturing New York Harbor in the 1860s. Below is a wine cellar that can house more than 1,200 bottles.

Next to the stone-walled office is one of the most impressive features of the house, a spacious family room that can entertain 100 people with its wet bar and view of the heated pool with hot tub.

The amazing house is only half a mile from the Philadelphia Country Club and is being brokered by Coldwell Banker Preferred for $2,750,000.
