Considered one of Lower Merion s First homes , The John Roberts House , named for a prominent mill owner and operator is a veritable neighborhood and Pennsylvania landmark. Constructed from stone that was hand gathered from the fields and Mill Creek stream beds, this three story home has stood the test of time and preference for tearing down and rebuilding not simply because of its historical roots, but more due to its exceptional floor plan, unexpected ceiling height, superior natural light and the charm of the multiple fireplaces found through out the home. Purchased by the current owners in 2014 the home, although well loved by the previous owners, was in need of a full renovation and reimagining. The new homeowner, sensitive to the origins of the home, made certain to focus on timeless selections for materials, while pushing the space plan on the interior to a more contemporary styling. The list of "must-haves" included a dramatic two story kitchen, large radiantly heated mudroom with 'washing up' sink and abundant storage. Also important to the renovation was the design and execution of a peaceful but indulgent Master Suite with handsome hardwood floors, Dressing Room/Closet and adjacent spacious Bath outfitted with separate marble topped vanities, an oversized seamless shower and glazed claw footed tub. The intention during the renovation was to keep as much of the original as possible while investing in equal parts function and fresh style. This was achieved using a quiet, professionally selected color palette so that the house presents with a chic and effortless flow from room to room. A large entrance Foyer sees the turn of a traditional staircase, with a glimpse to the right to the not so formal Living Room with fireplace further highlighted by original bookcases and millwork. Straight ahead is the Dining Room with a wet bar, smartly designed to look like a sideboard, which conceals a wine chiller, separate beverage refrigerator, storage for liquor, serving pieces and stemware. Doors from the Dining room, Living Room and Kitchen open to a wide, private bluestone patio surrounded by a low stone wall ideal for grilling and al fresco entertaining. Steps away find a stick-fenced vegetable, herb and cutting garden colored by nearby flowering shrubs and trees. Few spaces are as integral to family life as the Kitchen. With a volume ceiling, an exposed stone wall and an overlook, balcony-style second stair, you can see small original windows that were perhaps once located in a second story bedroom. This space is simultaneously chic and welcoming with sparkling white cabinetry, a large seated center island, and impressive slab stone tops and backsplash. A richly stained wood floor runs through the kitchen and into the adjacent Family Room. Warmed by an oversized fireplace, with gas insert for convenience, and brightened by western facing windows the combined spaces blend the old and the crisp new finishes seamlessly and to great result. Ascend either stair to the second level where, in addition to the expansive Master Suite, two additional Bedrooms, each with their own bath, can be found there along with a bright laundry room. The third floor, enhanced by dormered ceilings and wide planked floors, offers superior charm and two generously sized Bedrooms, a large office, hall bath and storage. With surprisingly good ceiling height the basement provides excellent primary storage and easy access to mechanicals.Pristine, exciting and thoughtfully considered to the smallest detail. This turn key residence is unparalleled in the marketplace and available for immediate purchase.
