Description

Own a storied piece of history+GGthe last existing structures of the Ronaele Estate noted Philadelphia architect Horace Trumbauer designed for Eleanor Widener and Fitz Eugene Dixon in 1921. Pheasant Run combines old-world craftsmanship and attention to detail with a multitude of contemporary conveniences for exceptional entertaining and ease of living. The gated compound includes a magnificent 41-room estate home with in-law/au pair apartment at 7925 Washington Lane, and the gatehouse at 7919 Washington Lane+GGall on 2.48 private, park-like acres in Wyncote, within easy commuting distance of Center City. Originally the estate+GGs working dairy farm, the buildings were converted to a residence in 1952, and the property has been on the market only a handful of times in the past century.Drive through the gates into another era. Inspired by an English country manor, the Tudor Revival main home features a gorgeous fieldstone, brick and half-timber fa+-ade with Vermont slate roof in a beautifully landscaped setting with multiple courtyards. Step through the formal reception doors into the grand foyer, with pond and through-wall fountain, forged iron chandeliers and Mercer tile floor. For convenience, a formal powder room with makeup table and coat closet adjoins a black marble bath. Pass through custom 12-ft. wrought-iron and glass pocket doors on the lobby+GGs south side, over the inlaid Mercer tile mosaic and into the ballroom. From custom hardwood floors and marble fireplace with carved mantel, to a barrel-domed ceiling with a breath-taking multi-tiered crystal chandelier, it provides the perfect setting for a memorable evening. A second-floor minstrels+GG gallery overlooks the room. The eat-in country family kitchen overlooks the grounds, pool, patio and aviary. With Italian subway tile, stainless steel countertops and a center island with copper top, it+GGs a chef+GGs dream. Appliances include Thermador Masterpiece double-wall ovens; a commercial range with grill and griddle as well as 4 gas burners; 2 ovens and a warming shelf; high-end stainless steel commercial refrigerator/freezer and dishwasher; and a Sub-Zero under-counter icemaker. An adjacent center-hall service kitchen with pantry, double sinks and Thermador ovens, custom cabinetry and many other professional-grade appliances makes entertaining a joy. For quieter times, a study with green marble fireplace and built-in cabinets, bookshelves and dimmable overhead lights is also off the foyer. Down the south hallway, a spacious den is a great gathering spot for family and friends, with a stone fireplace, a projection TV and built-in screen, a wet bar and 300-bottle wine room. In the north wing, the primary bedroom has dual closets and dressing areas, a marble gas fireplace and a ceiling-mounted projector and screen, and a bath with black marble dual vanity, multi-head shower and more. A VIP guest suite also has an en suite bath and adjacent den with a small bar. This wing has two additional bedrooms and a center hall bath with separate shower and tub. The second floor has a powder room and an equipped gym with Jacuzzi, steam room and sauna. A party loft and wet bar with a sound system and arcade games is beneath a large hayloft dome. Adjacent is a 1-BR apartment with living area, kitchen, full bath and separate entrance and parking.The party continues outdoors.
