Welcome to the Dolobran Estate, a rare opportunity to own a magnificent piece of history on the Main Line!! Originally designed by renowned Philadelphia architect, Frank Furness, this 7 Bedroom, 7 Full and 2 Half Bath masterpiece was built in 1881 for shipping magnet Clement Griscom as his family's summer retreat. Featured as the Vassar showhouse in the early 1990's, and again extensively renovated from 2012-2014, this property has finally been restored to its former glory, offering the most discerning buyer the perfect combination of distinguished architectural grandeur while harmoniously blending with modern amenities. As you enter the grand Foyer, you will be mesmerized by the many hallmarks of a by-gone era, beginning with the original blue and white Delft Tile murals and Jacobean chimney surround, that were gifts from the Queen of the Netherlands. The stunning carved oak doors, detailed coffered ceilings, and stunning fireplaces are just some of the additional architectural features giving one a sense of the homes history and character, while all of the rooms graciously adjoin the Foyer offering a perfect modern day circular flow. The original wood paneled Library is tucked away providing a glorious private room to work from or just enjoy, while Furness's distinctive signature peacock symbol can be found in a cozy Office that provides additional work space. Designed for entertaining, one can only imagine the exquisite parties that must have taken place and the spirt of the home beckons the next homeowner to continue the traditions. Expansive Living and Dining Rooms with access to a breathtaking Terrace overlook the Pool and the meticulously maintained 1.94 acres, which are the perfect backdrop to create cherished memories. The gourmet Kitchen and walk-in Butlers Pantry offers all of the amenities to create a seamless transition from day-to-day living to entertaining, while the sunken Family Room provides special family space.
