GUILDFORD, a truly rare offering, is an authentic 16th century English Tudor estate majestically situated on 18 park-like acres with sunset vistas and in a world of its own. Down a private lane, one enters through the gates of Guildford and is transported to the English countryside. Inspired by Sutton Place in Surrey, England using architectural elements meticulously imported and reassembled, this breathtaking home took a decade to complete in 1925. Built of reinforced concrete, Guildford's antique brickwork, roof tiles and terracotta window frames need only to function aesthetically. Carved wood paneling, elaborate cornice work, oak floors, limestone walls and stained-glass windows all dazzle as they did when they were originally installed. Upon entering, one experiences the warm majesty of the home. Designed for both elegant entertaining and intimate family life, the interiors are graced with abundant natural light and high ceilings. Past an ancient limestone archway and through an historic carved oak door, the large entry hall greets with a fireplace, linenfold paneling and stone floors. The spacious living room is crowned with ornate molding and centers on a massive fireplace. The Cedar of Lebanon paneled library is an intimate room, perfect for fireside conversations. The garden room with wet bar and tiled floral arranging room overlooks the Great Lawn and sunken garden. The 18th century paneled dining room leads to a butler's pantry and large, light-filled, modern eat-in chef's kitchen. The family and laundry rooms complete the main level. The second floor includes an opulent master suite with 2 luxurious baths and dressing areas and 4 additional en suite bedrooms. The third floor includes 2 charming bedrooms with adjacent studies, large cedar and luggage closets, ample storage, recreation and staff space. The lower level hosts a connoisseur's wine cellar, a spa, staff laundry and multiple storage areas. The home has been completely updated for 21st century living with features that include 2 elevators, 13 working fireplaces (11 wood and 2 gas), a 4-car garage, updated systems, 9 zones of heating/cooling and public sewer. A private and large home office is perfect for working remotely or as a studio. The grounds include woodland trails, pool w/ spa, terraced gardens and a landscaped amphitheater. The property is fully fenced and gated. Very private yet walkable to local train stations, shops, restaurants, galleries and golf / tennis clubs of charming Chestnut Hill. The location also allows for access to some of the areas best private schools, including Springside Chestnut Hill, Germantown Academy and Germantown Friends. Guildford is only a short 25 minute drive from Central Philadelphia and 90 minutes to Manhattan. This is truly a special and magical home not to be missed.
