This stunning, luxurious home being offered for sale in Penn Valley is nothing short of a private Mediterranean retreat, writes Esther Yoon for Philadelphia Magazine.

Set on more than two acres of irrigated and beautifully landscaped grounds, this five-bedroom home with an in-ground pool is full of architectural details that range from large-arched doorways and tile floors to stucco-clad fireplaces.

Greek columns add to the feeling of ancient charm and modern wonder.

The kitchen is updated with modern amenities and features copious countertop space. It also has plenty of windows overlooking the grounds, giving it a bright, airy feel. The entertaining space inside the great room, accentuated by tumbled marble and limestone floors, can easily seat 60 people.

The master suite features a massage area with whirlpool tub, spa room adorned with radiant, heated stone floors, a luxurious bathroom, and an indoor Endless pool.

The lower level offers a spacious family room, two en-suite bedrooms, plus a room that can be configured as an office or a gym. Sport lovers will also enjoy the private tennis court.
