This is a rare opportunity to own Dawn Redwoods, an expanded, 130-year-old farmhouse estate, set on approximately 4.8 acres of beautifully landscaped grounds. This property is conveniently located in the heart of Lower Gwynedd in the Wissahickon School district. A clerestory tower allows light to flood into the entrance hall of this charming stone home where you are soon welcomed by various built-in antiques, wood clad ceilings and an elegant wine cellar. The living room reveals a large elaborate hand-carved marble fireplace as its focal point. A whole house generator as well as three geothermal heating and cooling units with oil heat backup keep running costs low. Upstairs and downstairs laundry rooms add to the convenience of this five bedroom, five bath home. The estate is equipped with public sewer and water, and includes well water for the irrigation that serves the lush grounds. The detailed landscaping exhibits mature trees throughout the property, complimented by a stunning fountain and outdoor fireplace positioned in the front yard. The in-ground saltwater pool has newer equipment and a gracious patio with a 70-year-old Wisteria climbing the pergola and providing shade. The pool is surrounded by a brilliant hand laid stone wall, providing the base for multiple drip-irrigation system flowerpots. There is a one-car attached garage and a separate oversized three-car garage which both have heating and air conditioning - perfect for a workshop, studio, or car collector. Steps from the backdoor is a professional grade tennis court with proper lighting and a comfortable gazebo built for spectators. A self-contained gatehouse has two bedrooms, one and a half baths and a small kitchen to provide guests with their own dedicated space and plenty of privacy. This opulent home is located within the constantly developing and busy surrounding area of Lower Gwynedd, yet tucked away and peaceful. Do not miss your chance to own this beautiful property!
