    Property Details

    A rare refurbished log barn in Villanova, 1408 Rene Road is truly one-of-a-kind. Its rustic appeal and character-filled features, like wrap-around porch, branch railings and natural wood structure, paired with its unbeatable functionality, flow, and ample living space, make this unique spot the perfect place to call home. As you enter this magnificent estate, the first thing you will see is the spacious living room with reclaimed hardwood floors, a cozy wood-burning fireplace, and incredible beamed ceilings, trusses and log walls that give it a warm & inviting feel. Large white and red wine refrigerators and a wet bar with a game table underneath the stairs make this room ideal for entertaining. To the right of the entrance, there are French doors that lead you to a step down office with custom built-ins, which adds to the functionality of this level. Surrounding two story windows and a large solarium skylight allow natural light to flow in during the day and frame the nearby city lights and stars at night. Past the living room, you will find the handsome gourmet kitchen, which features a large island, soapstone countertops, farmhouse sink, gas fireplace, and high-end appliances. The heart of the kitchen is the beautiful Aga stove which exemplifies the way this home blends ageless charm and modern luxury. Off the main kitchen is a smaller full service kitchen and pantry. The main kitchen, along with a big, bright breakfast area, is lined with windows and has access to the incredible rear yard. A mudroom, first-floor laundry room, and powder room add to the functionality and convenience of this home. The gem of the first floor is the private ownerâ'™s suite. As you walk into the primary bedroom youâ'™ll find ample space, a large walk through closet, a gas fireplace, and a laundry room. Two large separate marble bathrooms, one with luxurious soaking tub, are attached by a two story shower. The second floor has four bedrooms and three full bathrooms, two of which are en suite, and one is a Jack & Jill bath. There is also a convenient second floor laundry room. A spiral staircase takes you up to a third floor, which includes a broad finished loft area with custom built-ins, a full bath and a sweeping view of the living room below. The finished lower level has a den, theater, full bath, and sizable art studio equipped with a sink, cabinets, microwave oven and a gas fireplace. The lower level has access to the backyard and an attached two-car garage. There is also a separate one-bay garage, which connects to sizable conditioned storage space. Outside, the wooded grounds of this stunning property are perfect for relaxing, entertaining, and simply enjoying the outdoors. With its large partially heated and covered deck, charming gazebo, and in-ground saltwater heated pool, the tree-lined backyard, with ever-changing gardens, has tons of space to enjoy and provides optimal privacy for you & your loved ones. All this in the nearby green spaces like the Philadelphia Country Club, Stonleigh Garden, Chanticler, and Morris Arboretum yet still an easy commute to City Center and close to trendy shops & restaurants.
