    Description

    Greystock Lodge is a true architectural treasure with an exceptional blend of circa 1908 details and all of todays modern amenities. Located on one of Chestnut Hills most coveted streets, the current owners have transformed this stunning Tudor home into a private luxury oasis, perfect for entertaining and family living with lush private grounds. You are greeted with a covered walkway to the front door which opens into a grand wood-crested foyer. To the right of the foyer, you will find an expansive light-filled formal living room with a fireplace, window seating, and access to the covered patio. To the left of the foyer is a gorgeous dining room with a fireplace, beautiful built-in cabinetry (which formerly housed an expansive fish tank). Beyond the dining room is the gracious step-down great room with vaulted beamed ceilings, an oversized tiled fireplace, two walls of windows and French doors that lead to another expansive patio outdoor space with outdoor grill and storage. The bar room tucked by pocket doors between the great room and the kitchen is well equipped with a refrigerator, ice maker, dishwasher, and plenty of storage. The bright Chef~s kitchen is a sight to behold, complete with a glass solarium eat-in area and an 11 foot island! The large space is equipped with a galley sink, tons of well-designed storage and pantry space, Thermador oven and microwave, 6 burner gas range, SubZero refrigerator, Bosh dishwasher, and a trash compactor. Are your shoes dirty from playing outside? Enjoy the large mudroom with tons of storage space adjacent to the kitchen. Behind the built in wine storage in the base of the beautifully ornate main stairwell is a hidden cozy den/office.The Master suite overlooking the rear grounds includes a huge spa-like master bathroom with dual walk-in closets accompanied by custom built-in shelving and drawers, a walk-in steam shower, soaking tub, toilet, and a bidet. Down the hall, there is another bedroom suite, an additional bedroom with hall bath and convenient 2nd floor laundry room with front-loading LG Washer and Dryer next to a wash sink. Continuing up the historic and grand hand carved paneled stairwell you reach the third floor noticing the built in screen from the original organ that was sounding throughout the halls of Greystock. There are two large light filled bedrooms, one with vaulted ceilings and a lofted area, a full hall bath and a sitting room on this spacious upper floor.Outside, from the stone terrace you overlook your private and well manicured tiered garden with a thoughtful landscape design that ensures greenery and blossoms throughout the growing season. Entertaining is a must-do since there is a built-in outdoor kitchen with BBQ grill with outdoor sink, bluestone patio and other terrace areas. Looking for more outdoor adventure? Enjoy the tremendous tree house that was thoughtfully built and maintained. On the property is a convenient storage shed and there is a 2 car garage steps away that is yours as well.Walk to parks, shopping and everything that Chestnut Hill has to offer and get into center city Philadelphia easily on either the R7 & R8 train lines. Virtual tour available now!
