    Description

    Presenting "Ropsley," an architecturally significant, one-of-a-kind four-acre country estate designed by Mellor, Meigs & Howe in 1917, in the desirable Wyndmoor neighborhood. Tucked behind winding stone walls, the entire arrangement of rooms, forecourt, gardens and service courts were designed with the compass in mind, highlighted by the compass in a beautiful mosaic on the floor of the parlor. This exceptionally thought-out home includes sight lines designed in order to present the most pleasing views from each room. The level at which the main floor is set offers dramatic views of the parterre and grounds with mature trees and landscaping. The home was completely updated and restored by the current owners and is replete with many original details and all modern systems. Upon entering the rotunda, with a dramatic circular staircase forming the center of the house, you are immediately struck by the exquisite craftsmanship and detail. The large parlor with hand-carved stone mantle, original timber framed ceiling, and Enfield tile floor leads to the wood-paneled drawing room with full bath. Floor-to-ceiling windows look out on the stately terraces and pool. The dining room with built-ins and fireplace provides the perfect space for more formal entertaining, while the family room with vaulted ceiling and corner fireplace offers a respite for cozy gatherings. The chef's kitchen with vaulted 2-story ceiling and large center island with adjacent, sunlit morning room will quickly become a go-to spot for coffee overlooking the rear grounds. Upstairs, the master wing offers a large master bath with pretty views of the property, a convenient study and laundry, and a large, adjoining bedroom with ensuite bath. The second floor living room offers access to the separate in-law or au pair suite, with full, eat-in kitchen, full hall bath and two bedrooms. The third floor of this home offers a large bedroom with a living area with kitchenette and second laundry. There are two additional cottages on the property, perfect for extended family or rentals. Located just minutes from regional rail, major highways and the shopping and restaurants of Chestnut Hill. Ropsley is a truly spectacular estate.
