    Description

    This is a rare opportunity to own Dawn Redwoods, an expanded, 130-year-old farmhouse estate, set on 4.8 acres of lush beautifully landscaped grounds. This property is located in the heart of Lower Gwynedd in the Wissahickon School district. The property is in the process of being subdivided into 2-3 lots if desired by a buyer. A clerestory tower allows light to flood the entrance hall of this charming stone home. Many built-in antiques, wood clad ceilings, and a wine storage room add to the unique character of this home. The living room has a large elaborate carved marble fireplace as its focal point. A whole house generator as well as 3 geothermal heating and cooling units with oil heat backup keep running costs low. Up-stairs and down-stairs laundries add to the convenience of this 5-bedroom, 5 bathroom home. Public sewer and water for the house and well water for irrigation serves the beautiful grounds with mature trees, fountain and professional landscaping. The in-ground pool has newer equipment and a gracious patio with a 70-year old Wisteria climbing the pergola providing shade. All plant containers around the pool have drip-irrigation systems. There is a one car attached garage and a separate oversized 3 car garage which has heating, perfect for a workshop, studio or car collector! The large storage unit at the back of the property will be removed. A professional grade tennis court with proper lighting and gazebo is the perfect addition to this estate. A 1,000 sq. ft self-contained gatehouse has 2 bedrooms and 1 bathroom and a small kitchen. It can be used as a business, Doctors office, in-law cottage or au pair residence. This is the perfect home for a family to make happy memories, conveniently close to the 309, yet tucked away and peaceful. Don~t miss this beautiful property!
