European, old-world elegance abounds in this custom-built Tudor-style home, situated along the 8th hole of Whitemarsh Valley Country Club. It features a turret, a circular driveway, an exquisite backyard with an in-ground pool, two staircases, an abundance of storage, and a myriad of unique architectural characteristics. Upon entering through impressive antique Cathedral double doors, you are welcomed into the turret - a grand foyer filled with natural light. Your eye is immediately drawn to the 27ft ceiling –bordered with intricately hand-crafted inlaid wood. The focal point is the curved wrought-iron-railed staircase, ascending to the second level. From the foyer, step down into the formal living room, boasting a soaring trestle wood ceiling. The original teak hardwood floors in a herringbone pattern are in pristine condition. The centerpiece of this room is the magnificent wood-burning fireplace. Reminiscent of a medieval castle, the massive hearth is encased with an elaborately sculpted 8ft tall stone mantle, complete with a Coat of Arms. The teak herringbone-patterned floors continue into the formal dining room, illuminated by a wall of windows. The spacious eat-in kitchen flows from the dining room and has a brick wood-burning fireplace, custom cabinets, and a splendid view of the backyard. A hallway connected to the kitchen contains the back stairs leading to the second level and is flanked by a good-sized laundry room, a full bath, and storage closets. Access to the garage is located off this hallway. Adjacent to the kitchen is a capacious bi-level family room with a wet bar, gas fireplace, and backlit stained-glass inlays above the bar. Step outside through the sliding doors into a secluded haven. The in-ground pool is surrounded by a flagstone patio and is hedged with a distinctive stone wall with a built-in water fountain. A few steps up from the pool area sits a sweeping manicured lawn, overlooking the golf course. The second level highlights four bedrooms, three full baths, and two cedar closets. The primary en-suite is striking, with a wood-burning fireplace, a separate walk-in dressing room, and a 4-piece tiled bath which includes a jetted tub.
