Property Description

The strength and character of this property is unmatched. 49,000 Glen Gery Danish Blend bricks, a brick herringbone walkway, and 2x6 construction with floors built on 12-inch centers are the foundation for this Georgian colonial. Built on 14.52 acres of conservation land and backed by a professional survey & township approval for a 2-acre building envelope within, the property forges the possibility for a family compound. Surrounding neighbors also focus on preservation, providing a view of 100+ acres across two streets of conservation land. A secure gated grand entryway with all brick wing walls and Olde World Philadelphia cobblestone leads up a winding drive with sugar maples planted equidistant from one another to create a stately welcome to the Idlewild South property. There is an abundance of health in the land and soil: an orchard of 40+ mature apple, pear, and peach trees; a pond with significant water life, and rich land in the rear of the property with 650 feet of deep greenery and thick woods abutting High Road. Bluestone patio with a separate private tiered pool and newly renovated pool house WITH FULL BATH provide a decadent escape at the rear of the property. With this much intensity and detail placed in the exterior alone, one can only imagine the interior offerings of the home, both mechanically and aesthetically. Entry through the columned front portico to the grand foyer, your vision lifts from the decadent marble radiant heat flooring to the vaulted ceilings and expands to take in the custom millwork. The main level is honored with sunlit rooms throughout and the gleaming natural wood floors, marble and wood mantles, molding, and custom ceilings are the beneficiaries making for a lively home suitable for entertaining. Your caterer will thank you for providing them 'best in class' accommodations, including a 6-burner Viking range, Subzero refrigeration, double self-cleaning ovens, and an oversized granite island for the perfect presentation. You will appreciate the custom cherry cabinetry, two spacious pantries, and gleaming hardwood flooring. The Morning Room is the perfect accompaniment to this welcoming kitchen with its unique exposed brick wall, wainscoting, and Italian tumbled marble flooring. For more formal or romantic affairs, the ambience of the elegant Dining Room with ornate tray ceiling, custom millwork, and a wood burning fireplace with marble mantle adds just the right lush tone to any evening. The formal Living Room is the perfect setting for after dinner lively conversation while the adjoining Study is a resplendent space for bourbon and cigar pairings and enticing debate. The younger set will enjoy games in the Family Room and end their evening through the French doors onto the bluestone patio and perhaps a late night swim & hot tub. The brick pool house is one of the most recent renovations with well chosen features and conveniences. Gaze upward to your hearts content as no light pollution is present to distract you from admiring the next falling star. Tranquility and peacefulness permeate this setting from sunrise to moonrise and it is breathtaking in its depth and simplicity all at once. Once sated and ready for rest, the upper level of this home offers an Owner's Suite with expansive private balcony overseeing the koi pond, orchard, and spectacular long distance views. With three additional bedrooms on the upper level all with hardwood flooring, two share a full bath while one provides a private full bath. The master en suite features raised panel wainscoting, tray ceiling, marble flooring, double vanity, dentil molding, radiant heat floors, and a separated jacuzzi tub and shower. When guests must regrettably say their evening goodbyes, a covered walkway leads to the detached 3-car garage & drive. Please request a complete list of improvements that the current stewards have selected with the utmost care & a focus on richness & meticulous detail.
