710 Glengarry Road occupies an idyllic Chestnut Hill location, across from the Philadelphia Cricket Club's historic St. Martins golf course and steps from a footpath to the 2000-acre Wissahickon Valley Park. The distinctive French-inspired house and beautiful grounds were designed to accommodate both gracious entertaining and the day-to-day bustle of family life. Almost every principal room has multiple access points - to adjoining rooms and extensive stone terraces and gardens - that create an airy, spacious feeling and wonderful flow. Elements such as white-columned partitions, generous molding, graceful metalwork, classic light fixtures and wide doorways hung with richly stained solid-wood double doors combine to lend a clean, sophisticated elegance to the more formal parts of the house. Other, less obvious items, such as 5-zoned AC and 9-zoned heating (including radiant underfloor heating throughout the Great Room), are nods to comfort and efficiency. Family and guests will also enjoy the special privacy and convenience of a professionally designed home cinema and a dedicated exercise room, complete with flat-screen TV and adjoining full bath. (The latter space, built to be versatile, could function as an in-law or maid's suite, etc.) On the second floor, the Master Suite occupies its own separate wing; each of the three additional bedrooms has a full bath and dressing room or walk-in closet. Surrounding the house are grounds that feature majestic trees, mature shrubbery, large patio areas, built-in barbecue station, in-ground pool, pergola, and several flower gardens. This is a lovely, carefully designed and immaculately maintained residence in a tranquil park-like setting, yet only blocks from 2 regional rail stations and less than a mile from the shops and restaurants of Germantown Avenue.
