Tucked off a long drive, across from 20 acres of a preserved Natural Lands Trust farm, Black Rock is a transporting, one of a kind property, with a 1917 original stone Carriage House which was updated and expanded in 1998. The original home, highlighted by ten foot open trussed ceilings and modernized by wide cased openings between the spaces, results in a bright and seamless floor plan rarely found in homes of this vintage, according to the listing on zillow.com

A double-sided fireplace transitions between the not so formal Living Room and large, gracious Dining Room. In the living room, a deep-seated bay window enjoys views of the courtyard, front gardens and charming lattice fenced pool. A true Chef’s kitchen with Vulcan restaurant level cooking, soap stone and woodblock counters opens to the Family Room with fireplace, custom shelving and wide deck which spans the full back of the home and is warmed by southern exposures. The main house is served by two different staircases with three bedrooms and three baths, office space, large laundry and plentiful storage. 

Although only a few minutes walk to the town of Gladwyne, the natural beauty and privacy enjoyed from the backyard is unprecedented. Rock outcroppings, centennial trees and flat green lawn combine to offer an oasis ideal for individual enjoyment but capable of hosting large gatherings.
