Nestled on the premier street within the highly coveted Lower Merion Township, this home is a hidden gem among just a few homes, each graced with substantial acreage and the seclusion afforded from the private street. Set on nearly three acres of thoughtfully landscaped grounds, this striking contemporary residence exudes a refined elegance and sophistication that captivates upon arrival.Originally designed by the esteemed architect William Ferguson Deknatel, a protege of the renowned American architect Frank Lloyd Wright, this home's architectural pedigree adds an extra layer of historical significance and distinction. Influenced by the principles of organic architecture, emphasizing harmony with the natural environment and innovative design concepts, the open floor plan through oversized mitered windows seamlessly integrates open and covered terraces and vistas of gardens, lawn, woods and sculpture garden.A dramatic one-and-a-half-story atrium entryway welcomes you, with sleek glazed black floor tiles that provide a tasteful backdrop for what lies beyond. In the living room, you'll find exquisite handcrafted built-ins along one wall, flanking an inviting open fireplace with a generous seated ledge.The Pullman-style kitchen prioritizes efficiency and leads effortlessly to an adjacent dining room. Warm woods and a meticulously detailed ceiling create an intimate and refined atmosphere, complemented by yet another fireplace. A discreetly hidden bar serves multiple functions, functioning as a concealed service area, second laundry space, and ample storage.Two family or guest bedrooms grace this level, with one thoughtfully designed as an office with Murphy bed, each featuring its own en-suite baths. As you move towards the private quarters of the home, a sanctuary of unparalleled luxury unfolds. The primary suite, just steps away from the living areas, offers an experience that surpasses expectations. A fireplace graces one wall, while eye-level windows frame serene views. The marble-clad bathroom exudes opulence and is accompanied by two generous walk-in closets. Adjacent to this oasis, a "greenhouse" sitting room with a private side yard exit beckons for moments of tranquil contemplation.The upper level, discreetly accessible via turned stairs, reveals two additional bedrooms that share a well-appointed hall bath. The lower level presents abundant opportunities for recreation and fitness, featuring a billiard room, a gym, a full bath, a second laundry facility, and an indoor pool with garden-level walkout access.This residence stands as an exceptional and fully customized masterpiece of architectural design, reflecting both the influence of Frank Lloyd Wright's principles and William Ferguson Deknatel's unique vision. By appointment only, it represents the epitome of elegant living, marrying modern sophistication with the serene beauty of its natural surroundings.
