Property Description

This exceptional 4700 sqft residence on one of the most popular streets of Trolley Square has everything you are looking for - a single family, detached 3 story home with a unique local history, beautifully renovated kitchen and baths, 4 bedrooms plus a bonus room, 2 car attached garage, plenty of the original turn of the century construction charm, and walkability to the shops and dining of Trolley Square. Built in 1902 for the family of Henry and Francis Tatnall it was transformed into the very first location of The Tatnall school. The school eventually took over the entire residence before moving to a new, larger location in 1946 and the house eventually became a home again. The spacious entry foyer features a beautiful oak turned staircase with stained glass window highlight. Abundant windows allow natural light to fill the living room. While the fireplace with wood mantle is currently for decorative purposes only there is a gas line run just underneath in the basement and could be easily converted. The dining room runs the width of the house and is perfect for large dinner parties or cozy family dinners. Another decorative fireplace graces one wall. The most recent renovation took place in the heart of the home - the kitchen. A wall was removed to open up the family room to the kitchen and create an open, modern feel. The family room has built-ins surrounding a gas fireplace. Shaker style cabinetry, stainless appliances with gas cooktop, and a grey tiled backsplash that perfectly complements the stunningly veined quartzite counters. Transom windows on one wall, recessed lighting, and commercial kitchen grade pendants rewired for residential use add ample light no matter what time of day. A mudroom foyer with built-in cabinet leads to the powder room and attached 2 car garage and lends a place for keys and mail to be housed. A rear staircase conveniently located adjacent to the kitchen leads to the 2nd floor which is host to a splendid owner's suite including generous sized bedroom, 2 California closets, and luxurious full bath. The renovated full bath included dual vanities with heated floors, grey cabinetry, marble counters, and oversized shower with Arabesque tiles and seamless glass doors. The 2nd floor also has a flexible floor plan with a den and home office with private bath that would be perfect for those that work or study from home. A sizable laundry room completes this floor. Continue up the main staircase to the third floor which is home to 3 additional bedrooms and 2 nicely renovated bathrooms. There is also a sizable foyer which can be used as a sitting or study area as well as a sky lit bonus room. Enjoy the happenings of the neighborhood from the front terrace with gorgeous gardens or opt for more privacy and set up a sitting area at the top of the long driveway. Old world charm, modern convenience, and a short walk to restaurants, shops, tennis courts and parks. Several private schools are a within walking distance. What more could you ask for?
