Absolutely exquisite, Rock View Farms estate, adjacent to Fairmount Park is a must see! Main home of the property is stunning at first glance as you travel the long circular drive leading to the grand entrance of the home. The craftsmanship and attention to detail is impressive. A welcoming front porch greets guests and leads them to an oversized foyer and two stories of windows showcasing the expansive 10 acre property. A cook's dream kitchen with wood cabinets, granite counters and stainless appliances looks over the two story living area. The floor to ceiling stone fireplace and exposed wood beams give this soaring two story space an inviting and cozy feel. Adjacent to the kitchen is the playfully elegant dining room with views of the property. The first floor also has a tucked away side entrance with mudroom and half bath. Continuing to the opposite wing of the home is a casual den or office with fireplace and outdoor access, as well as a bedroom or playroom. The fabulous winding staircase leads to an upper level grand hall with open views to below and breathtaking views both inside and out. Here you will find two more comfortable ensuite bedrooms, laundry and Juliette balcony from the main hall. The master retreat is worthy of a design magazine. Pass a cozy reading nook outside the double doors leading you to a spa like retreat. The oversized bedroom area looks out upon the property and offers a quiet balcony to relax in privacy. The master bath is a masterpiece with his and hers sinks and glass shower and soaking tub. Head through the bath to an expansive closet fit for the largest of wardrobes. Beyond the closet hall is a cozy private hideaway, complete with fireplace. Appreciate the fine detail that went into building this home, but there is so much more to see! As you head back up the drive you will pass the 4 bay garage/stable that houses second floor storage, an office with stunning outdoor views, as well as a powder room. Beyond the garage is the turn-of-the-century stone guest house, included with the property, that is adjacent to a beautiful park. This stone house has much of the original detail, but has been modernized for comfort. The two bedroom, 1.5 bath house with living, dining and full kitchen has countless options for it's use. The stone patio leading from the home is the perfect place to enjoy a glass of wine in the evening. A very easy task, when the converted spring house hides an expansive wine cellar, ready for a tasting party.
