Hedgeley House is a privately situated, c. 1900, Main Line estate, perfectly sited on over 2 flat acres with stunning views. Its design and alterations by Frank Furness reflect classic, timeless principles of grand scale, proportion, detail and light without being overwhelming or detracting from being intimate. The residence was comprehensively renovated and expanded to satisfy the demands of a modern day family while embracing the quality and dimension of the original architecture. The splendor of Hedgeley House is evident from the moment you enter the residence. The center hall, grand foyer boasts magnificent wood paneling, coffered ceiling, an oversized fireplace (1 of 10) and a sweeping staircase, with overlook balconies, which ascends to the third level. The formal rooms, including the living room, conservatory/library and dining room, display exquisite millwork and moldings, fireplaces, soaring ceilings, French doors and oversized windows. Its everyday spaces are eminently livable. The newly built, bright, breakfast room and custom kitchen features professional fixtures, finishes, appliances and abundant storage. The first floor design connects the dining room, brick dining room patio, center hall, living room, conservatory/library, sunroom and sunroom brick patio into a large, open indoor/outdoor space perfect for everyday living or serious entertaining. Private quarters (6 generously sized bedrooms and 5 renovated bathrooms) are located on the second and third floors, accessible via both the remarkably grand main staircase and rear staircase. The extensive master suite boasts a dressing room with fireplace and Juliet balcony, two baths, and an immense bedroom. Also on the second level two additional bedrooms, a bathroom, an office and laundry room. The third level offers three bedrooms, two bathrooms and a bonus room.
There is generous storage throughout. Notably, each bedroom is considerably sized, has high ceilings and lovely views of the grounds. Above the new garage is a separately entranced ideal space for a home office, gym, au pair suite or pool house. Hedgeley House, so magnificent in its repose, will rise to any occasion, whether used as a family residence or a place to entertain — a must-have estate home for the discriminating buyer who wants the quality of old-world craftsmanship along with important modern updates in a private but open setting.
