Property Description

Welcome to "Meadow View at Andover". This truly unique property consists of two parcels, totaling just over 6 acres, approximately four of which are protected in perpetuity within the Brandywine Conservancy. An oasis of tranquility and privacy on the Main Line, this spectacular property offers four seasons of natural beauty. With approximately 2 acres of carefully cultivated meadow, plus an additional two acres of woods, the property is a haven for pollinators and birds of virtually every native variety, including "resident" great horned owls. (An 8' deer fence keeps this area protected for other wildlife to enjoy). The elegant stone manor home was built in 1941, with stone reportedly from the same local quarry as the new buildings at Villanova University. The current owners undertook an extensive renovation project from 2018-2019, working with renowned Main Line architect Warren Claytor and builder Tom Wilcox. While respecting the history of the home, the owners wanted to capitalize on the southern exposure and natural light, spectacular views and outdoor living - and bring new functionality to the home. The renovation included a stunning new gourmet kitchen (custom cabinetry, Thermador appliances, and Brazilian quartzite countertops), a new main floor powder room, new en-suite primary bathroom (with radiant heat flooring) and new primary bedroom walk-in closet, renovated hall/guest bathrooms, and a new second floor laundry. The first-floor was redesigned to create open flow and expanded views of the meadow. The front hall was opened, adding a rear door to access the new, elevated Trex deck (built on a waterproof platform over the lower stone patio). Critical home infrastructure was also updated including a new Buderus propane boiler (replacing old oil), zoned heating and cooling, plus upgraded electrical and security systems. (The property will convey with two, owned 1,000 gallon propane tanks.) The pool underwent renovation in 2020 with the interior and coping renovated by Blue Haven Pools. Pool systems including the polaris sweep system and winter pump have been updated, and a new custom pool cover was installed in October of this year. As for practical, functional flow inside and out - the daylight, walkout basement is just steps away from the pool - with newly installed, water-resistant, easy-care, wood-look vinyl plank flooring, and a convenient powder room. The stunning meadow garden design and installation were completed by Jonathan Alderson and James Hollis - known for their work at Longwood Gardens and Chanticleer, among others. The main house has an oversized two-plus car attached garage (heated) with inside entry. A second driveway provides access to a detached two-car garage/ storage barn that includes a floored second level. "Meadow View at Andover" is truly an oasis of natural beauty and solitude, in a very private setting tucked within the bustling Philadelphia Main Line. Close proximity to the Philadelphia International Airport, Amtrak (including a direct train to Penn Station/NYC from Paoli, as well as trains to Harrisburg), and SEPTA commuter trains to center city Philadelphia. This property is located a "stone's throw" away from renowned golf and country clubs, premier educational institutions, wonderful dining, shopping and all that the Philadelphia Main Line has to offer. By Appointment Only.
