"Windy Hill", an exceptional, classic Georgian-style stone mansion encompassing over 11,000 square feet, was constructed in the late 1920's on one of the highest points in Upper Providence Township, on land that once included the valley now known as Springton Reservoir. Situated on two verdant acres, Windy Hill is ideally located within close proximity to vibrant downtown Media, a convenient 12 miles to Philadelphia and rail lines to NYC and DC, and just 20 minutes to Philadelphia International Airport...This meticulously maintained manor home is replete with stately architectural details - Doric columns, dentilled cornices, Palladian window over the main entrance portico, 24-pane windows, second floor veranda with sweeping views of the rear grounds, all complimented by thoughtful landscape architecture that incorporates an amazing stone gazebo, two fountains. and stone garden walls, patio and pathways. Inside, the grandeur of this home unfolds from the elegant center hall, with French doors leading to a gorgeous sunroom with slate floors, coffered ceiling and egress to the rear grounds and pool. The sunroom can also be accessed via French doors from both the formal dining room and the living room, creating a wonderful, circular flow that connects these generously proportioned, light-filled rooms, and lends itself beautifully to gracious everyday living and large scale entertaining. Both the formal dining room and living room have wood burning fireplaces, as does the family room, which also features a wall of built-in bookcases and egress to the exterior. The kitchen and adjacent butler pantry include a commercial gas range with two ovens, a commercial Miele dishwasher, lots of cabinet storage, along with a large walk-in pantry. This quadrant of the home also includes a cozy breakfast room with a powder room (just off the kitchen) and a 13' x 9' mudroom, with egress to the stone-walled kitchen garden area. There is also a 15' x 11' home office with a charming Dutch door dedicated egress. Rounding out the main level is the chapel wing, which features a 45' x 29' great room with slate floors and cathedral ceiling. This highly flexible mega space has unlimited usages - exercise or artist's studio, music room, recreation room, or potential conversion to garage space for the car enthusiast..... Access the second level via the curved, balconied staircase that leads to the lovely master suite with fireplace, dressing room with built-ins and egress to a private rooftop sun spot, updated master bath, and French doors to the spectacular veranda, an amazing venue from which to view and appreciate the rear grounds. The second level includes three additional generously-sized bedrooms, all with en suite baths, one featuring a fireplace, and one that also accesses the veranda via French doors. Also, a rear hallway on this level leads to a light-filled three bedroom, one full bath au pair / guest suite with back stair....The third level includes a bright and charming bedroom with arched window and en-suite bath. The majority of this level is comprised of a 52' x 24' ballroom with hardwood floors - another amazing and flexible grand space to adapt to your creative endeavors! There are two adjacent game rooms - one with lots of built in shelving - and also a walk-in cedar closet!... For the last thirty years, this incredible home has been lovingly cared for and diligently maintained. Recent infrastructure improvements include roof replacement/copper gutter installation, transition from septic to public sewer, HVAC replacement, hot water heater replacement, full electrical/wiring update, whole house generator and new concrete pool lining.
