Fabulous property at an incredible price. Truly exceptional residence in Laverock, Cheltenham Townshp, PA. Designed by architect John Graham, Jr, and featured in Town & Country Magazine in June, 1919 and presented in Elegant Country and Suburban Houses of the Twenties by Charles F. Keefe, it is rare even to see a property of this caliber, let alone live in it. "The Orchard", sensitively maintained and preserved by the current owners, has retained many of the original architectural details, while incorporating today's modern amenities. The level of craftsmanship in the woodworking, stonework, and plasterwork is incomparable. The fully-fenced, well-landscaped acreage provides privacy and seclusion that is rare to find so close to the City. Built as a country estate, the house is grand, but not imposing; sumptuous and inviting. The first floor consists of grand entrance hall, formal living room, dining room, library, family room, and kitchen; all tied together by a light-filled 30'x6' gallery. The second floor has a master suite with his/her dressing rooms, updated bath, and original summer sleeping porch. Three more substantial bedrooms, each with its own en suite bath complete the 2nd level. Third floor is comprised of a bedroom suite, large billiard room with fireplace, walk-in cedar closet. There is a two-story, two-bedroom apartment with a separate entrance, perfect for guests or home office. The converted barn includes a garage and large home gym. The heated pool is about ten years old. One distinctive feature of this extraordinary home is the Rixheim Wallpaper, called "Views of America", which can be found in the Diplomatic Reception Room of the White House. One of the most beautiful, intact properties in Montgomery County.
