    Property Details

    Introducing Llewellyn's Manor! This area of Rydal was originally known as Cloverly Farm where the Herkness family raised prized cattle & sheep during the 19th Century. In the early 20th Century, the Herkness' began developing the farm, and this house was constructed in 1911 for Robert Llewellyn. An exquisite example of the Pennsylvania Farmhouse vernacular, the symmetrical 3-story facade has a warm & welcoming scale. A large circular drive leads to the detached 2-car garage (with walk-up storage). The spacious entry hall leads directly to the rear family room, with the powder room & a closet tucked behind/under the stairs. The living room has one of the wood-burning fireplaces and a set of French doors to the front yard. The dining room has a beautiful built-in china cabinet with direct access to either the butlers pantry or the breakfast room/kitchen. A rear staircase leads directly to the master suite & basement. There is another set of French doors to a rear deck that overlooks the lush landscaping (the current Owners filled the yard with rare rhododendrons & azaleas). Through the butler's pantry, one accesses the family room with the 2nd wood-burning fireplace and another door to the rear yard. There are Mercer tiles throughout these 3 rooms. The master suite occupies the entire space above the kitchen wing and includes 2 closets, a 2-room en-suite bath, a huge dressing room (that would make a killer walk-in closet, or a much larger en-suite) and a door to the rear hall and back stairs. Each of the 3 guest bedrooms on this floor are the exact same size and each have windows on 2 sides for great cross breezes during the cooler months. A hall bath serves these 3 bedrooms. The 3rd floor has two more huge bedrooms (one with a walk-in cedar closet) and another hall bathroom for these 2 bedrooms. There is a large attic storage area over the kitchen wing. The laundry remains in the basement with direct access to the rear yard. The remainder of the basement is un-finished. There are two new gas-fired HVA/C systems installed in 2016. The entire roof was replaced (house & garage) in 2011. The property was connected to public sewer about 10 years ago. Tucked at the very rear of the property is a private in-ground pool and storage shed. It's tucked away from everything, yet just around the corner from Abington Hospital, Whole Foods, Trader Joe's and just 15 minutes to the PA Turnpike. The SEPTA station is just a half mile away.
