Property Description

This magnificent brick home, with its distinctive Georgian architecture designed by Ann Capron, welcomes the visitor with its circular drive, gated entry, and Gale Nurseries-award winning and beautifully landscaped, 5.4-acre grounds in the heart of Willistown. With 5 bedrooms, 7 full baths and 2 powder rooms, and 6 fireplaces, this homes fortress-like features include concrete walls and double dry walls for sound reduction, 9- to 12-foot ceilings throughout, impressive millwork and wood floors. The stunning Hunt Room, home theater, gorgeous outdoor pool, and 3,200-bottle wine cellar are just a few of its overflowing amenities. With more than 12,000 square footage and building materials that in today’s dollars would exceed $5 million, 853 Providence Road is truly one of a kind. A soaring, two-story foyer welcomes you into expansive living spaces with graceful touches including 4-layer custom moldings, arched doorways, and beautiful fireplaces. The first level features a formal living room and dining room, chefs quality kitchen and adjoining dining area, sunroom with 12-foot coffered ceilings, and a truly unique hunt room with 20-foot beamed ceilings. The first floor also has a main suite with bed and bath, home office, two lovely powder rooms, and large laundry. On the second level, there is an in-law/guest suite above the garage, as well as three generously sized bedrooms, each with their own en-suite bath. A walk-up, floored attic provides an additional 2,000+ square feet, convertible to living space. With two floors of formal, traditional rooms, the Garden Level offers true, eye-catching flair, with oak flooring, French-style café, and hidden second entrance to the “ancient” wine cellar. This level has a second full kitchen for easy entertaining (the level leads directly to the patio and pool). You’ll also find a billiards room with a 25-foot granite-top bar with brass foot rail, and a host of special antiques, including a phone booth with working phone and a Post Office counter (the post office boxes have working combinations). The home theater seats 8 in its plush-red seats and has an additional dining area for 4. A private mirrored gym encourages a healthy lifestyle, even with such lavish attractions! With matching changing rooms and baths (with Sherle Wagner and Villeroy & Boch fixtures), the Garden Level leads to the incredible exterior, with its very private 50 x 22-foot pool (and attached spa accommodating 6-8), beautiful brick patios, and dedicated volleyball/badminton/croquet area. A beautiful pergola with climbing roses and mood lighting is the perfect location for viewing the rose and butterfly garden; sit and dine here and watch the cardinals and hummingbirds on lazy summer evenings. The gorgeous landscaping makes this a perfect home for large gatherings or intimate cocktail parties by the pool—in the past, this home has welcomed from 2 to 150; with recent, positive developments, now is the perfect time for family and friends to gather. This is a unique chance to own a peerless home in Radnor Hunt’s beautiful countryside. While the property itself is so special and has the feel of a gracious estate, it is also close to top schools, several parks and walking trails, golf courses and country clubs, and downtown Malvern with its library, boutique shops and restaurants. Both Paoli and Malvern train stations have easy access to Center City. (Paoli has express service to Center City. Amtrak is also available at the Paoli station.) For those rare times you may want to get away, the airport is an easy drive, just 25 minutes.
