    Property Details

    Welcome to Linden Crest. This manor home was designed by the famous architectural firm of Duhring, Okie & Ziegler for Mr. Charles Wentz in 1910. The home is most famous as the first residence of Mr. John C. Martin, the Publisher of the Philadelphia Inquirer during the early 20th Century, and son-in-law (by marriage) to Cyrus H.K. Curtis of the Curtis Publishing empire! Set amongst a lush landscape of specimen shrubs and trees on nearly 2 acres, the residence sits high on a bluff with southerly views over the sweeping park-like setting of Curtis Arboretum. As you enter this exceptional home, you will be greeted by a stately center-hall floorplan that is gracious in scale, with beautiful crown molding, 10' ceilings and large entertaining rooms. All of the original woodwork has been thoroughly restored, and the floors just shine! There is exceptional light that filters through the trees into this home at any time during the day. For formal entertaining, the beautiful Dining Room welcomes your guests to sit and enjoy good company in front of 1 of the 4 working fireplaces. Just off the dining room you will find a full-sized butler's pantry and plenty of counter space for meal preparations or catering, and a Powder Room discreetly tucked under the stairs. On the opposite side of the entrance hall, you will find the formal Living Room which has two French doors leading out to the south facing porch (recently, completely re-built!) and a 2nd fireplace. Whether entertaining your friends or relaxing and enjoying the views, this room is cozy yet elegant. Through the living room you will find a cozy Family Room, with a 3rd fireplace & a wall of built-in bookshelves. The estate has been enhanced with a full-length English Conservatory along the entire back of the home. An exceptional space to either watch the Winter snowfall, enjoy the cool fall breezes or to open wide and take in the sweet scent of Spring! Connected to the conservatory you will find a state-of-the art kitchen, complete with cherry cabinets, large pantry, professional appliances including a double freezer-refrigerator, gas cooktop, double ovens, new granite counters and a S/S under-mount sink. The master suite has a completely new en-suite bath, the 4th fireplace, a walk through closet & a private dressing room. The laundry is on the 2nd floor as well. 5 guest bedrooms & 3 more full baths complete the private quarters. A large slate patio, fully fenced yard & 4-car garage complete the outdoor space.
