The 1955 Idea Home of the Year was designed by architect Hugh Stubbins and built for Better Homes and Gardens in 100 select locations throughout the United States. 20 Paxon Hollow is one of these homes. This mid-century modern gem has been beautifully restored by the current owners in conjunction with Philadelphia Magazine's "Best of Philly" 2017 designer Kate Rohrer. Located just outside Media Boro in Rose Tree-Media School District, 20 Paxon Hollow is situated on a lovely one-acre lot, surrounded by a gorgeous custom privacy fence. The detached two-car garage is situated near the main entrance, detailed with a dramatic flat roof overhanging the translucent garage door. An asymmetrical facade that includes a wall of fixed windows extending from just below the roof line, exposed beams, and an extended eave at the front gable - all hallmarks of this architectural style - create an inviting sheltered entrance. Once inside, the foyer, complete with coat closet and slate walkway, opens up to the large family room with freestanding decorative fireplace. Refinished oak hardwood floors run throughout the house, unifying the open floor concept. A beautifully-remodeled kitchen with breakfast bar, spacious quartz counters, and modern cabinetry features stainless steel Viking, Bosch, and Samsung appliances. The adjacent dining room is sited to maximize flow through the hub of the home. Sliders to the slate patio extend the home's entertaining space and allow for easy al-fresco hosting, while the bank of southerly-facing windows in the room fill the space with natural light. Follow the hall to find three equally-sized large bedrooms and hall bath. These bedrooms were designed with flexibility in mind - each could be used as a playroom, office, TV room, or gym. The huge Owners Suite is an oasis-like retreat - here, a large sitting room is flanked by windows, transom lights and sliders to the slate patio, while a massive walk-in closet leads to the bathroom with skylight. Tucked behind the kitchen, the home's laundry and utility room features a pantry, cupboards, an outside entrance and stairs to the spacious basement. Gorgeous grounds that include specimen trees, a beautiful, level lawn and expansive slate patios surround the property. Additional recent upgrades include a 2017 HVAC system, skylights and many custom details. Conveniently located to major corridors and within a stone's throw to fabulous parks, highly rated schools, downtown Media and its festivities
