Called Maple Oaks for the exquisite mature trees that beautify its sprawling grounds, this grandest of Main Line Manor Homes is truly a sight to behold. Masterfully built by EJ Hedden Company over 90 years ago stands a stunning English-style estate that's been extensively updated by current owners & meticulously cared for as it deserves to be. Nestled amid manicured parklike environs is a majestic main house & separate pool cottage/garage providing an oasis for residents & guests. An electric gate & fence plus lovely foliage envelope the property. Generous grass lawn, a private backyard, elevated pool patio, updated outdoor kitchen, in-ground pool, fire pit & separate awning-covered flagstone terrace off the family room inspire entertaining to your heart's content. From this world all your own in a sought-after family neighborhood, you're just minutes away from many conveniences, with walkability to the Wynnewood train, Suburban Square, Whole Foods & award-winning schools. This home's rich pedigree is seen in every detail, from extensive traditional Pennsylvania stonework to the period doorknobs. Airy ceilings, wood-burning fireplaces, hardwood floors, oversized windows & fine finishes enhance sophistication. The flow & floorplan are perfect for living & hosting, with a seamless connection between the main rooms & outdoor areas & pool.
