Agent Remarks

Drawing from its rich history as part of the Dunminning Estate, once a sprawling 150+ acre tract owned by the Brown family of Girard Trust, the carriage house, Hidden Rock, stands as one of the last remaining structures from the 1887 estate & one of the largest & most architecturally impressive carriage houses. Sold in 1995 in a state of complete neglect, the current owners saw to a holistic & exciting renovation. In an effort to retain as much original detail, focus was brought to fashioning the once utilitarian structure into a warm, romantic & dramatic home. Soaring 30 foot ceilings, diamond patterned original fenestration, & the add. of 3 fps adding both warmth & charm, the updates were imaginative & as well as sensitive to the original aesthetic & structure. Centrally located & accessed by magnificent 12 foot sliding mahogany carriage doors, "The Court" offers immense living & social space, housing the DR, Screening area, Billiards & multi-seated Bar. Overhead Hand formed ceramic tiles hold a varied rustic appeal while the radiantly heated concrete flr provides functional warmth & a neutral palette. A wide arch on the southern exposure of the home opens to what was once the horse stable, now a sparkling white gourmet kit. boasting 14 ft ceilings, oversized cabinetry & granite as well as sealed wood counters. Adj. Butlers/Service Pantry provides storage in this open concept plan, while the a raised Brkfst area overlooks an inviting FR w/ wide, masonry firebrick fireplace. Able to be separated by detailed sliding doors, the opposite side of The Court offers a more formal space w/ a centrally located hearth in what the owners fondly call "The Oak Room". An adjacent Lib. w/ flr to ceiling custom shelving presents like a fine club & offers incredible work space or a potential 1st lvl bdrm w/ its en-suite full bath & walk in closet. A wide 2 story connection w/ the ground lvl currently purposed as an office, was once the lift which allowed carriages &tack to be hoisted on flr 2 for longer term storage. A traditional turned stair, leads to 3 bdrms, laundry & a full hall bath. A deluxe Master Suite is styled in neutral tones & offers 3 exposures of light as well as skylights in the sitting rm. The romantic Bdrm is bright & warm with a gas-burning fireplace & long views of the terrace & lawns. A sumptuous beige marble bath w/ separate tub & shower create the ultimate retreat ringed by expertly planned gardens & terraces.
