    Property Details

    Charm abounds at 205 Whitemarsh Road, a meticulously maintained Merion Golf Manor home with unequaled curb appeal! Classic brick colonial architecture meets exquisite old house charm in this desirable Ardmore neighborhood. The current owners have taken great care to preserve the home's original design and fine details, including the new Majestic Slate roof, with all-copper anchors, valleys, gutters and downspouts & and guaranteed by the manufacturer for 50 years! Other exterior renovations include: the recreation of the original black wrought-iron gates and window-boxes; upgrading the doors to the oversized 2-car garage to match the original design and to include modern power; and the addition of a heated driveway and side entrance. The formal manicured gardens in the rear of the house are surrounded by mature, 90+ year old Hinoki sacred cedar trees, slate walkways, and a serene Koi pond. Enter into a gracious center hall with a sweeping staircase. The adjoining formal living and dining rooms feature the original moldings, including crown moldings handpainted by the muralist of Philadelphia's famed Mastbaum Theater. The kitchen has been re-invented several times, including demolition of the butler pantry to create an open concept design by the current owners. The family room features a wall of built-ins and a wide bow window, which welcomes beautiful natural light and overlooks the manicured English gardens with prized specimen perennials and koi pond. A powder room and hall closet complete the first floor. The second and third floors contain 5 spacious bedrooms and 4 ½ baths. Original hardwood floors are throughout the house. Large windows throughout bring in natural light. All plumbing is up to date. The full walk-out basement has been dry for 20+ years after the design and installation of a full perimeter French drain. The home also features a NEW state of the art security system controlled from your mobile phone! 205 Whitemarsh Road was the third home built in the then-new (1928-1929) concept of a suburban Main Line neighborhood, what is now known as Merion Golf Manor. It was designed by the developer's architect (presumably for himself). It is located in the award-winning Haverford School District and and is a commuter's dream with easy access to public transportation and all major roadways.
