**Check out both the VIRTUAL and VISUAL tours available for this exquisite estate. ** Available to show once the restrictions on REAL ESTATE have been lifted. "Second Tamora" was built in 1898 as a quiet retreat and summer home outside the hustle and bustle of the city. This charming and stately home was named by its founder and creator, Edward B. Smith, of the Philadelphia investment firm, Smith Barney, who also happened to be a real estate mogul and planning and development visionary. Responsible for bringing the railway to Gwynedd Valley from Philadelphia, Smith had a keen sense of his town's history, and he recognized the uniqueness and cache of the area that residents still enjoy today. Elegant "country" living can be enjoyed in this grand stone manor home offering 13,000 sq. ft. of living space sited on nearly 3.5 park-like acres in the heart of Gwynedd Valley. This home will impress you the moment you drive through the gated entrance down a long, winding, tree-lined driveway with a circular courtyard, fountain, and 4-car garage. As you enter the home into the large formal foyer with marble flooring, you'll instantly be struck with the home's grandeur. Extraordinary hand-painted walls and trim, 3 staircases, 18" thick granite walls, more than 8 bedrooms, 10 distinctive fireplaces (3 of which are gas), 7 full and 2 half bathrooms, a full catering kitchen (accessed by original barn doors), a wine cellar, formal gardens, a 50' long outdoor swimming pool and spa, and an indoor exercise pool are only a few of this spectacular home's singular features. Every room is lovely and has a special story to tell (-if only walls could speak). Do you want some more history? Aside from being the inspiring getaway of the notable Mr. Smith, this property has entertained numerous luminaries for over a century, furthering its historical importance. For example, Princess Grace of Monaco (Oscar-winning actress and proud Philadelphian) enjoyed her stay at "Second Tamora" as did legendary war hero General Douglas MacArthur. This magnificent residence is seeking its next steward (its 7th to be exact). Breathtaking at every turn, this property easily exceeds the most discriminating requirements for living, entertaining, and recreation with exquisite design and materials used throughout. Located within the award-winning Wissahickon School District, this home is also near to numerous private schools. If you're the outdoorsy type, you may fancy the golf, hiking, biking, tennis, and cricket options in the area. Commuting convenience abounds via close proximity to local trains, the PA & NJ Turnpikes, and Routes 309, 476, 76, and 95. Surrounded by a substantial array of both gourmet and casual restaurants as well as local markets, including Whole Foods, McCaffrey's, Wegmans, Trader Joe's, and Costco, you'll never be at a loss for dining and shopping options. If you'd like to know more, we'd love to take you on a private tour!
