This majestic Elkins Park English Tudor home, whose breath-taking styling is enhanced by a new roof, presents truly distinctive living and dramatic curb appeal. Great industrial families of the past selected Elkins Park for its rural environs and proximity to the city, to build their architecturally diverse country homes. This home compares favorably to the homes in the neighborhood. The dramatic front entry, complete with a gorgeous staircase and landing, exhibits hand carved ornate moldings and bifurcates the first floor into grand living and dining areas. Other architectural details encompass arched doorways, oversized windows, French doors and exposed wood beams. The formal living room features an ornate stone fireplace, and a built-in granite bar with a storied prohibition past. It extends approximately 20 feet long by 30 feet wide with 13 foot ceilings. The adjacent family room/den, partitioned by French doors offers intimate warmth with built-in bookcases and wood beams. The opposite wing of the home contains a large dining room that opens into a breakfast room with access to the outside via French doors. Next to the breakfast room lies the modern kitchen complete with a gas (4) & electric (2) cook-top, numerous floor to ceiling pantry cabinets, a double oven, center peninsula with sink, Sub-Zero refrigerator, custom accent backsplash tiles, and a large window above the oversized main sink. The rest of the first floor consists of a walk-in pantry, powder room, coat closet and access to the basement, second and third floors via the “secret” staircase. A wide lovely landing on the second floor delivers easy access to all of the bedrooms and a view of the surrounding property via the large picture windows above the dramatic staircase. The primary en-suite bedroom includes a modern bathroom featuring a glass shower, Jacuzzi tub and double sink marble vanity. This en-suite also provides two walk-in closets, a separate sink and beauty area, as well as a lounge/office area with a cosy fireplace. Additionally, the second floor offers a separate princess en-suite that incorporates a full bathroom. Three additional bedrooms, one with a separate sunroom, and a laundry closet, holding a washer and dryer, put the finishing touches on the second floor. These three bedrooms utilize two connected (Jack & Jill) bathrooms. The third floor furnishes an additional 1,184 square feet of space +/- and boasts four rooms as well a full bathroom, and a large cedar closet for extra storage. Accessed by the aforementioned secret stairs, the large recently waterproofed, walk-out basement has a brand new french drain / dual sump pump system that comes with a transferable lifetime guarantee. The basement is sectioned into a laundry room, two large play-rooms, a room that was formerly used as a walk-in safe and a utility room that contains two new hot water heaters and a modern steam boiler heating system, installed in November of 2012. Perched on the hill, this estate home sits on more than a half acre. The front of the house has an approximate 500 square foot stately patio that upon restoration is perfect for outdoor entertaining. This raised patio overlooks a large level private front yard. The property has room for several cars to park in its paved driveway that culminates in a large circle next to the home. A small courtyard, containing a large tudor shed, completes the grounds. Given its size and location, this home is ideally located for those want to work from home as well as those who want to commute to any work place served by public transportation. The home has the dual benefit of offering both modern up-to-date move-in amenities and the ability to create additional bedrooms, office areas, dens or family rooms, and outdoor living spaces. This home comes with a 1-year standard home warranty. 7 Windsor is a special place that is waiting for the perfect new owner. Don’t miss this this rare opportunity. Please check out 7w
