Property Description

Welcome to Holmecrest!!! This 1926 stone manor house has had only 4 Owners in its 91 year history. Originally constructed by a local developer & builder (Joshua A. Holmes) for his own residence, it then became the home of Rona Brunswick (Bronfman), daughter of one of the founding brothers of Seagrams in Montreal! The story shared down through the owners is that Joe & Rose Kennedy were key friends with the Bronfman clan during prohibition. When that was lifted in 1933 & this house was purchased by the Brunswicks in 1934, the Kennedys came to Elkins Park often for visits! This stately stone home is tucked into the corner of a 1-acre parcel, affording large, sweeping lawns down the side & rear. A circular drive leads to the front porch
(already wired for your Tesla!) while the rear drive goes through the port cochere to the detached 2-car garage. A gracious entry hall welcomes guests & the living spaces radiate off this main corridor. The powder room is tucked under the stairs next to the door out to the side driveway. There is a cozy paneled library with a wet bar facing West. The living room occupies the entire front of the house and has exceptional trim moldings, a bay window and a gas fireplace with a detailed Georgian mantel. The large dining room overlooks the rear yard & has another bay window, a crystal chandelier with a ceiling medallion and direct access to the breakfast room. The kitchen has been completely updated with marble counters, a Sub-Zero fridge, professional stove & a Bosch dishwasher. There is a peninsula & an island with a 2nd prep sink. One can access the rear deck or the back staircase. The master suite has a large sitting area, and a newly remodeled en-suite bath with a glass shower (for 2, with a rain head), a bidet, toilet & 2 sinks. There is a hall bathroom for 1 of the bedrooms (now used as a 2nd floor TV room) and the 3rd bedroom has it's own en-suite bathroom. The 4th bedroom on this floor was converted to a laundry. The 3rd floor has 2 more large bedrooms, ample storage closets and the 4th full bathroom. The central A/C system services all of the 2nd & 3rd floor while a mini-split unit in the kitchen services the 1st floor. The basement has two large finished areas that include the family room (with doors to a pergola covered patio) and a large office area with the 2nd powder room. It's just 3 blocks to the Elkins Park train station and CreekSide Coop and the library is just another 2 blocks away.
