    Description

    This spacious property features grand grounds, bright interior spaces, and is ready to call home. Enter from the winding drive and stroll past curated gardens that bloom in part through all seasons. The front portico extends into a long patio along the northern front of the house. Here you'll get a taste of the stately scale that the house's architect, Horace Trumbauer, was renowned for. Trumbauer's grand designs can be experienced throughout the rest of Overbrook Farms, or more iconically at The Philadelphia Museum of Art, one of his masterworks. Enter into the main hall, which features a curved staircase that rises three floors and a south-facing landing window that gently illuminates the space. A large coat closet and access to the back of the house sit to the right of the stairs. Hardwood floors lead you into the stately living room centered by a monumental marble hearth symmetrically flanked by two glass doors leading to the gorgeous, light filled sunporch. Across from the living room is the house's handsome dining room, which offers the second fireplace in an elegant corner location. Classic swinging doors lead you into the organized butler's panty, complete with wine fridge - a fantastic place for storage or finishing touches before food is presented . Just beyond is the spacious kitchen, offering granite counters, stainless appliances, and back stairwell. The back door is through a large back entry room doubling as the laundry space, complete with utility sink and powder room. From here, take the back door to the expansive side yard and fenced in backyard - the perfect outdoor spot through all parts of the year. Here you'll find the house's matching detached garage- ideal for workshop space or car storage. Let the grand stair lead you upwards to the main bedroom suite, offering a large organized dressing room, walk-in closet, and updated marble bathroom. Across the hall are two more sizable bedrooms flanking the second tiled bathroom. On the third level, enjoy two more bedrooms, another full bath, and additional "attic" storage with cedar room. The house features two-zone central air conditioning, steam radiators, and two-zone forced air heating. A huge basement with high ceilings could easily be finished, but currently provides excellent storage, craftwork, or recreation space.There+GGs always something in bloom in the 1/3 acre professionally landscaped gardens. The property is steps from the 147 acre Morris Park which boasts miles of hiking trails along Indian Creek, a meadow, a brook, and a playground. Just a third of a mile to Friends+GG Central School, and half a mile from the regional rail, which offers an 11 minute trip into Center City. Enjoy the grandest of Overbrook Farms at 6482 Sherwood!
