Property Description

Welcome to 1539 Hampton Rd. This stunning historic Greek Revival Colonial, sited on almost two acres in the best neighborhood in Rydal. This home was the site for the Ogontz School for Girls with a guest house designed by famed architect Horace Traumbauer. Situated on a multi-terraced landscape with extraordinary mature trees and beautiful gardens, the house features seven rooms on the first floor for people to live a luxurious and civilized life. From the circular drive, step into the formal entry that runs front to back and leads, by French doors, to an expansive outdoor terrace, overlooking a fountain and pool. To the right of the foyer is the formal living room, with French doors, and fireplace. The welcoming sunroom, with fireplace and windows on three sides, is reached from the living room. The formal dining room with fireplace and floor-to-ceiling bay window sits to the left of the foyer. Beyond the dining room is the spacious kitchen with high-end appliances and beautiful arched windows. Beyond the kitchen is the casual family room which leads to a covered porch and to the garage-end of the driveway. Completing the first floor are two powder rooms (one at the front door and one off the family room), an office/den at the front of the house, an ample coat closet, and the start of the stunning turned staircase to the second floor. On the second floor, you will find a beautiful primary suite with an outfitted dressing room and a large bath with whirlpool tub and separate shower. There are four more bedrooms and three more bathrooms on the second floor, all are spacious and bright. There is also a screening room for movies and video games, and a laundry area conveniently located near the bedrooms. A door in the second floor landing leads to the third floor space that could serve a multitude of uses, from guest room, to office, to exercise space, or studio. Across the driveway from the first floor family room and covered porch is a four-car garage with attached living space .
