Welcome to Fox Muir! This exquisite example of Georgian architecture was designed by the prominent Architect, Robert McGoodwin in 1927 for a local Philadelphia business man, Robert E. Kelley. What stands today at 8212 Cedar Road is a thoroughly updated estate property with some of the most beautiful details to be found anywhere around Philadelphia! Perfectly sited on 3.2 acres amongst stately Oak & Tulip trees (with a very high canopy to provide shade, but not block the vistas), one enters through a set of pillars to a circular driveway anchored by an elaborate fountain. The private parking courtyard (with the 3 car garage) is tucked behind a stone wall. Enter into the residence, and one will be amazed by the level of details, starting with the Corinthian columns, egg & dart moldings (and an unusual Lego block spacer) & the most unusual hand carved hand railing (yes, in the shape of a cupped hand!). There are way too many details to mention, however these highlights will wet one's whistle! There are 5 wood burning fireplaces. The basement was enhanced to include an Art Deco Bar & Movie Theater re-purposed from an Elks Lodge in Central, PA. The elaborately detailed & paneled family room was re-purposed from a Church on Chestnut Street in Philadelphia. Recently uncovered, an exquisite 1940 mural painted by J. Frank Copeland graces the dining room. There is also an entire wall of hand-painted Delft tiles surrounding the fireplace in the Master Bedroom. A Library with 4 walls of bookcases is located on the 2nd floor. Near the pool, there is a 21' octagonal pergola with Mahogany louvers to provide shade combined with a full outdoor kitchen, two changing rooms (with showers) and a powder room. There is a full tennis court tucked just beyond the pool & pool house. Those are just a few of the unique design elements to be found within and around this exquisite estate property. So much has been updated within the past 3 years. All 3 A/C systems are new, the pool was completely bonded, both master baths were completely renovated (the other were substantially upgraded), the roof deck was completely re-built, the garage was conditioned for heat & A/C and a TESLA charger was added. Offering 7 spacious bedrooms, 6 full bathrooms, 3 powder rooms, a modern & updated eat-in kitchen and even a billiards room! Come discover Fox Muir, an elegant property, perfectly scaled for either large parties or intimate gatherings.
