Formal gardens inspired by the Baroness Béatrice Ephrussi de Rothschild estate in Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat France, are the pièce de résistance at this Wilson Eyre-designed English manor-style house hidden far off the road on three acres. Home to Charles Louis Borie, one of the key architects of the Philadelphia Museum of Art, this residence is offered for only the fourth time in more than 200 years. The brick-and-stucco home retains period details including seven marble and stone fireplaces, exposed-beam ceilings and leaded-glass windows. Public rooms include a 2' x 40' living room with two fireplaces and French doors leading to brick patios and exquisite gardens, a formal dining room with fireplace, family room and a huge, all-new kitchen with a large island, catering area and professional-grade appliances. The upstairs begins with a main bedroom that includes an en-suite bathroom with a whirlpool bath overlooking the main parterre garden from a wall of floor-to-ceiling windows. Three additional bedrooms and three additional bathrooms complete this level. The third level includes two additional bedrooms and a bathroom. Downstairs, the lower level includes a newly completed media room and access to the tennis court. An Olympic-sized swimming pool balances the property opposite the tennis court. A garage apartment serves as a quest or caretaker's quarters. Just a few minutes to the train station, this classic Rydal estate home is in an incomparable setting of mature trees, secret outdoor “rooms” and formal gardens that are a delightful and dramatic surprise.
