Description

Welcome to the Grand Dame of Newtown Borough, a stunning 1902 Colonial Revival home that sits proudly on the most sought-after street in town. The historic Barnsley house features a gambrel roof, Palladian windows, lofty ceilings and handsome mill work. An arched hedgerow beckons you to this magnificent property that is traditional in style but modern in function. A stately front porch with tile floor and rich mahogany beadboard ceiling is a perfect spot to relax on a summer evening as neighbors stroll by. Once inside the vestibule, the expansive center hall featuring parquet floor and three sets of classic pocket doors, invites you to the warm living room anchored by a fireplace offering historic Mercer tile. The lovely music room, or library, across the hall also features original hardwoods accented with rich inlayed borders. A spacious dining room is ideal for family gatherings or entertaining as it adjoins the original butler~s pantry. Custom cabinetry, sub-zero refrigerator, double ovens, tile floor and breakfast bar are offered in the kitchen, which was designed especially so the gourmet cook may enjoy the company of family or friends in the adjoining family and sun rooms while taking in the view of the beautiful rear gardens. On a cool evening the gas fireplace provides a warm ambiance in the family room which is lined with French doors opening to the expansive raised terrace with inlayed slate. An impressive side entry provides easy access to a classic office boasting rich wood paneling and Mercer tile floor. Enjoy the luxurious second floor owner~s quarter~s with fireplace and breathtaking new en-suite boasting a freestanding soaking tub, walk-in shower, and custom built-ins, accented by gleaming marble. A private sitting room, providing a cozy respite or additional office, adjoins the impressively appointed dressing room with custom closets. Two additional spacious bedrooms and two baths are included on this level. The third floor is a delightful surprise with rooms that offer flexible opportunities. Currently a central sitting room adjoins four to five bedrooms and a gorgeously updated bath with walk-in shower and claw-foot soaking tub. Guests or children can have their own space yet join everyone in the kitchen and family room via the back staircase. There is much to boast about outdoors as each area of the gardens are landscaped for seasonal color. You will love relaxing at the inground pool and spa surrounded by slate decking, lush perennials and manicured privet. Meander through the glorious garden
