300 Glenn Rd, ARDMORE Property Listing: MLS® #1002765598

Built in 1907 for Dr. Joseph M. Reeves, Crestlea, the house "on top of the hill", remains a residence of striking proportion and architectural detail. As the home to chemical heiress Eleuthera duPont for over 40 years, Crestlea became a staple for society gatherings of the old Main Line. Beneath a large portico, Double French doors welcome you to a large Entrance Hall enhanced by a stunning stair accented by wainscoting and a tall wood burning fireplace with green marble surround and stately carved wood mantle. To the left of the Foyer is a bright and cozy office warmed by a granite and marble gas fireplace and enjoying views of the sloping valley and creek beneath. A large Living Room offers French door access to a southern facing porch overlooking a private yard, crown molding highlighted by a Parisian chandelier, and an ornately carved 5 foot mantle that draws one to the wood burning fire. An adjacent Family Room allows for a less formal gathering space or quiet place to read or escape. Eight foot double doors lead to a most elegant, formal Dining Room flooded with intricate crown molding and an eastern wall of 6 ft windows that flood the room with morning light. The Kitchen provides both charm and convenience with a Breakfast Area lit by 1 ft deep northern and western window sills, massive built-in wood cabinets, exposed beam, back door to driveway, and elevator and back stairway access. Ascend the formal stair, passing an extraordinary arched window, to a large parquet floor landing that leads to the deluxe Master Suite complete with a spacious walk-in closet, Master Bath with His and Her vanities, soaking tub, and sit-down shower, and separate entrances for each room so as to not disturb your sleeping partner. Three Bedrooms, one with en suite Bath and two with Jack and Jill Bath, a Laundry Room, and two small Maid's Rooms complete this level. On the third level, find Mrs. duPont's Ballroom. Mrs. duPont was known to bring private orchestras up to this level and host concerts or balls for friends and neighbors, but today it is purposed as a Billiard's and Recreation Room and it continues to enjoy balcony access over the portico which overlooks the entire property and surrounding valley. This floor is finished with a Bedroom with en suite Bath and a Storage Room. A landmark property full of rich history and Old World charm.
