    Property Details


    Welcome to The Cloister at Todmorden Farm! Secluded from the world, this amazing compound envelops its owner & guests in a personal and private sanctuary. Originally part of a large 200+ acre estate, the rare 1872 bridge barn remains, providing a fantastic backdrop for magical terraced gardens. In 2003, a new residence was constructed within the ruins of a 2nd barn (the walls of which still surround the rear & side of the new house). Tucked down a private lane, most locals don't even know this slice of heaven exists. Turn down a gravel driveway, and one discovers a lovely property that is perfectly scaled for its site. The main residence (3 beds, 3.5 baths) offers just over 3,000 Sq. Ft. of artful living space. A 2-car garage is entered into on the lower level. Just inside, there is a spacious laundry room with a walk-in cedar closet. The stairs to the front entrance and main living area upstairs are just to the left. A spacious family room has a set of French doors to a lovely little patio out front. This room also has a beverage closet with a fridge. The two guest suites are tucked into the two corners of this level and there is a large full bathroom. Upstairs is a wonderfully designed open-plan living area that provides great sightlines between the rooms, yet distinct living areas. The living room has one of the two fireplaces and a series of arched windows overlooking the terraced gardens out front. The dining room has a wall of windows and a set of French doors to a Juliet balcony that enjoys vistas of the ruins of the 2nd barn. The large kitchen has a central island, two Bosch dishwashers and a new Bosch French door refrigerator. A professional GE Monogram 36 gas range is anchored by a wall of cabinets and a built-in microwave/convection oven and warming drawer. A large workstation is tucked on the wall between the living & dining rooms. The upstairs family room has the 2nd gas fireplace and another set of French doors to access the front gardens. Just off this space is the three-season sunroom (with windows or screens) with a ceiling fan. There is access to the rear patio within the ruins and the rear yard, or the front yard. The entire HVA/C system has been replaced in the past 4 years. Now, let's talk about that bridge barn! A full 4 stories tall, so many options for the future Owner to use this amazing space. The ground floor retains the original horse & cattle stalls! The 2nd floor is accessed from the side yard and is currently un-finished storage space. The last bay on this level is a true surprise, soaring three stories tall inside! The 3rd level is accessed from the original front entrance and contains a completely separate 2-bedroom apartment of approx. 1,400SF. There are two living areas, two bedrooms, a full bathroom, a fully renovated kitchen and a separate laundry room. While the property is not zoned multi-family, this space provides significant options to the future Owners to use for extended family to visit for longer periods of time or possibly for in-laws or kids. One could also use this space for a very comprehensive non-impact home office space. Rose Valley zoning does allow as a Special Exception (with Zoning Board approval) the possibility for professional offices or studios for the personal use of a physician, attorney, dentist, accountant, architect, engineer, musician, psychologist or similar profession. There are so many specimen plants that provide four seasons of interest outdoors. Terraces and hidden stone staircases connect all the spaces and provide visual interest at every turn. Downtown Media is just a couple miles away and in less than 15 minutes one can reach the PHL airport. Access to downtown Philadelphia via the SEPTA Elwyn line is just a couple miles away. Hidden from the world, yet so convenient to everything! Come discover The Cloister at Todmorden Farm and you too will fall in love with this magical place!
