Holly Hill is one of the Main Line's most notable properties, dating to 1881 when the original parcel totaled 320 acres and the estate, then known as Fox Hill Farms, was self-sustaining in the tradition of an English country manor. Enter the drive at the stone gate house, now a beautiful home office/guest accommodation, and wind your way to the very privately situated, gated residence set amid outstanding grounds. The house is stunning in its detail; before you've even stepped inside, your eyes focus on the weathervane-topped turret and pristine red tile roof, the curved wall of what is a true "great room" and the verandas overlooking the grounds. Inside, a mix of everyday, family living spaces and dramatic rooms await, each brimming with original details and character. Mahogany doors and trim, 19th-century hardware, wood floors, Tudor-arched and "eyebrow" windows and more have been perfectly preserved through the stewardship of the present owners. The updated, rich cherry kitchen with island and casual dining area was designed by a serious cook and is outfitted accordingly?the walk-in pantry, once the home's original icebox "room", is a must-see for history buffs. And so it goes throughout the house: nooks and crannies with one-of-a-kind features, so much that it's hard to take in on the first time through. The home's formal areas include a dining room with a hidden dry bar and tucked-away, adorable powder room and home office. Beyond is the great room ? dramatic in scale and detail with a vaulted ceiling and exposed timbers that are full-circumference logs. A recently discovered Inglenook, walk-in fireplace trimmed in Philadelphia brownstone anchors the room, eye-brow windows serve as c. 1881 skylights, and a curved wall with built-in seating offers verdant garden views. A turned stairwell, almost hidden, leads to a complete guest suite with full bath. A second en suite bedroom is located in the center of the house. A master suite includes a sitting room, two balconies, two walk-in closets with built-ins and a full custom bath with soaking tub and separate water closet with commode and shower. From this room, arguably the highest point in Bryn Mawr, the views of the grounds are outstanding. Stone ruins and retaining walls, three terraced garden areas, century-old trees that command respect, a wisteria-covered walkway to a tennis court and countless spots for an evening glass of wine complete this one-of-a-kind offering. We are relisting in the Spring!
