About 1345 FORDING BROOK Road

LOWER GWYNEDD TOWNSHIP: On a private lane of just five homes set around acres of preserved pastureland, this 9,000+ square foot estate is an amazing custom built retreat. The center hall design defines symmetry, with rooms radiating off a beautiful entry with handcrafted staircase, intricate millwork and hardwood floors. There is a stately library paneled in mahogany/cherry with gas fireplace and a large bay ideal for looking out on the 2.7 acre estate, a formal living room with fireplace, a formal dining room with another fireplace and dentil moulding, a tile-floored solarium/office and a music room. Two gorgeous sun rooms, one a breakfast room, the other featuring a 500 gal. salt-water spa, both with radiant heated floors, flank the two story Great Room. This space is the entertaining heart of the compound; elegant millwork and a wet bar serving area sit beneath skylights and a second floor balcony while a fieldstone wood-burning fireplace centers the room.The updated oak and granite kitchen features Sub Zero and GE appliances, random-width oak floors, with ample room for casual gatherings or family meals, and leads to the adjacent laundry space and mud room, as well as back stairs.

The main bedroom features vault ceiling, a dramatic bath and two walk-in closets, as well as a sitting room with gas fireplace. the other bedrooms are generously sized with large closets and an additional bathroom at each end of the center hallway.
