Property Description

A once in a lifetime opportunity! For the second time in 76 years this historic home is on the market. Set on over 6 wooded acres with a level lawn surrounding the house and lovingly restored and added on to by current owners, Tanglewood combines the best of new and vintage. Enter into the two story foyer with original terrazzo floor, stunning curved staircase with stainless steel bannister, original light fixture and amazing mural. Just some of the updates include new Vermont slate roof, energy efficient windows, new oil tanks and well system, gourmet kitchen with Wolf 6 burner range, Viking Fridge, SubZero drawer freezers and Asko dishwasher (plus caterers kitchen downstairs with Dacor double oven and fridge), mud room with radiant
heated floor, redone baths, convenient second floor laundry room, hardwood floors all refinished and added recessed lighting. Surrounding the main house you will find beautiful landscaping, a stone patio off the dining room and another stone patio off the heated greenhouse. A third stone patio abuts the garden shed that has electric and plumbing making a unique place for casual entertaining. Reached by a charming covered walkway is the Archer and Buchanan designed and built Carriage House. Just imagine the fabulous entertaining you could do here but it also serves a function as a quiet at home office and private space for guests. Architecturally compatible and constructed using some stone salvaged from original walls on the property, Carriage House contains a 30 x 23 Great Room with vaulted ceiling, floor to ceiling stone propane fireplace and reclaimed wide plank hardwood floors, Bosch dishwasher, Scotsman ice maker, two SubZero drawer refrigerators, two bar sinks, 13 x 14 guest room, large full bath with tiled shower and pedestal sink and loft reached by whimsical ladder. Outside the great room is a stone patio with stone wood burning fireplace and below is an oversized three car garage containing the mechanicals. Buried behind is the propane tank for the newly installed generator which will keep the whole property comfortable in all seasons, regardless of weather. The owners say it perfectly. They love being 5 minutes away from a quart of milk but feel miles away in wooded seclusion! Located in the best area just minutes from major highways, Wilson Farm Park, Chester Valley Trail and Trader Joe's and just down the road from Conestoga High School, TE Middle School and Hillside Elementary School.
