    Description

    Be transported to the grace and charm of Europe: introducing "La Porta Rosa"!This enchanting Mediterranean home with its signature red-tile roof, stone walls and original European architectural features is set back within a graceful, long driveway and mature gardens. It was built by a father for his son in 1938 upon his marriage, and is a replica to a home that was inspired by the father's European travels. It is a home rich in history and charm, yet has been lovingly upgraded for the next custodian's abode.You are welcomed down a long, gracious driveway with mature trees and winding old stone walls to a series of understated surprises - antique light fixtures, stone pathways, patios, an unexpected garden shed, along with a charming iron grille Mediterranean red door, from which the home's name originates.The first floor consists of a large living room with an ornately carved wood mantel imported from England and the ceiling has exposed wood beams of similar theme. The original antique wooden floors continue to the dining room as well.The centerpiece of the dining room is a heavy custom-made bronze chandelier. This room includes casement doors to the rear patio courtyard, similar to the living room as well. Behind the sitting and dining rooms, an updated galley kitchen with granite counter tops, light cabinetry, Mediterranean style tiled floors, seating for two & numerous high-hats provide ample lighting, and a second, more informal sitting area as well. A powder room and mudroom are to be found there as well.The second floor, with a long gracefully arched hallway, takes you to four generously sized bedrooms, plenty of walk-in closets in each and to two full baths. All bedrooms offer generously appointed architecturally sympathetic newer windows that provide ample light. Charming architectural continuity is again visible in arched doorways, curving walls, faux balcony, Mediterranean nook windows, with floors being in wood or new carpeting.Again, the detail continues with curved iron grille door and winding steps down to the basement as well. Once there, a full-sized finished basement houses a built-in bar, sitting area with corner fireplace and a powder room. The theme of arches and iron is found there as well.Overall, the charm and unexpected detail is matched by substantial upgrades as well, of over $120,000 (documented), making this a well-taken care of home, a Mediterranean gem in lush foliage that is 10 miles from downtown Philadelphia.
