Located in the highly sought after Radnor Township & zoned to the award-winning Radnor School District, “Sunnyside” at 277 Beechwood, AKA 394 S Roberts is situated on a private road that is part of the original Wilson Brothers' designed “Wentworth Estate,” which was once the setting for the family of the superintendent of the Pennsylvania Railroad. Built in 1880, 277 Beechwood is a grand, Victorian, Queen Anne home, set in front of a large 4-acre lot. It offers many modern amenities yet maintains a high level of architectural integrity both inside & out. As you approach the home from the large circular drive you will fall in love with the gorgeous stonework, arched openings, wrap around patio perfect for enjoying the solitude of this lovely piece of property and so much more! Step inside the main entrance hall and enjoy a beautiful wooden cross-beamed ceiling designed by the Pullman Company, famous for its association with the Pennsylvania Railroad. In this entrance hall you will find 1 of 4 working wood-burning fireplaces! To the left of the entrance is the formal living room, a lovely place to spend time with guests. Nicely appointed with a 2nd fireplace & 3 large windows, this room is both sun-filled during the day & cozy in the evenings. Continuing from the entrance hall to the dining room, you can easily envision many elegant meals set here with the same cross-beamed ceiling details, a bay of windows & French doors that open to the patio! From the dining room you can enter into the expansive kitchen, renovated in the 2000's. This kitchen is deceivingly large & very functional with an abundance of cabinet & counter space, counter seating for 4, 2 sinks, a side butler's area with bar & even a library ladder to reach those taller cabinets. Note: The kitchen also offers a back staircase to 2nd floor, camouflaged by a cabinet door. Off the kitchen is a wonderful family room that is perfect for informal gatherings with those in the kitchen. From this family room, you can come and go through the rear door that opens to a covered porch with access to the detached 3 car garage! Completing this floor is an elegant powder room with marble sink & tile plus access to a large unfinished basement (full footprint of home). From the front hall, the handsome stairs & railings lead to the 2nd floor. Starting with the Primary Suite you will find a nicely sized bedroom plus closet, a separate dressing area with 2 large closets & primary bath. 2 additional bedrooms are delightfully sunny & large and share the hall bath. On the other side of the staircase is the laundry room & 2 additional bedrooms (1 currently used as an office) which share a Jack and Jill bathroom. Completing this floor are 2 large linen closets & access to the 3rd floor. On the 3rd floor find 3 large bedrooms, a large walk-in hall closet & a full bath (in need of updating and repair). Outside, the grounds are private and extensive with just a bit under 4 acres. Plenty of room for a possible addition, swimming pool, sport court or maybe an additional building. Owners have never investigated possible subdivision, but Radnor township zoning requirements are available for your reference. Sellers do not warrant that a subdivision is possible. Other features include soaring high 10.5 ft ceilings on the 1st fl and 9 ft on 2nd, 2 completely rebuilt chimneys (down to the roof line and rebuilt maintaining the original detail of the home), all new windows on the 3rd floor and 2 zoned high velocity central AC plus new heat for 2nd and 3rd floors. Centrally located close to 476, center city, the airport, many parks, shops and restaurants on the Main Line, as well as close to Bryn Mawr and Rosemont rail lines. Zoned to Radnor Elementary, Radnor Middle and Radnor High School, this home is a unique piece of history with amazing grounds in an amazing location and has so much to offer its new owners. Also note the incredibly low taxes for a home and land of this size!
