A rare find on one of the most exclusive and hidden streets in the Philadelphia area, just a stone’s
throw away from Gladwyne’s charming village center and minutes to central Philadelphia. 225
Maplehill Road is set on 3.79 acres of natural beauty and boasts 7,100+ sq ft of living space that
combines gorgeous views of a nature preserve with the ultimate in privacy, luxury and
Follow the red brick path past an elegant water fixture to the front door, and you will enter the
high-ceiling foyer, complete with marble floor. To the right of the foyer is a beautiful library with
floor-to-ceiling cherrywood shelves, built-in workstation, and a sunny reading nook with bay
window. The living room, which opens from the library, focuses on a French-style stone fireplace
with mantel (gas flame), with bright floor-to-ceiling windows on either side. To the left of the
foyer is a dining room with large windows, tasteful built-in display alcoves with shelves,
gorgeous crown molding, and chandelier. An adjacent butler pantry, downstairs bar, and wine
cellar make entertaining easy, as does the large kitchen, which features granite countertops,
commercial-grade stainless steel appliances, a double sink, and a built-in desk nook with
concealed printer cabinet. French doors in the kitchen open onto a spacious Brazilian hardwood
On the corner of the living room and kitchen is a warm and inviting sunroom with matchless
views of the garden—which was lovingly planted with rosebushes, peonies, and over a hundred
trees by the previous owners—and of the majestic trees and gently sloping protected land of the
nature preserve. Nature surrounds you in this room, which is the ideal space to watch birds or
occasional visits from families of deer just past the fence.
A stunning feature of this house is the sun-drenched first floor master bedroom, with two
ensuites and walk-in closets as well as independent deck access. The first floor is complete with
a mud room, closets and laundry room with a brand-new washer and dryer powerful enough for
all your laundry needs, as well as utility closets, cabinets, and a three-car garage.
The second floor has four sizeable bedrooms and two bathrooms, along with several dedicated
storage rooms. Each room provides beautiful views off different sides of the house, and a
spacious landing, doubling as a sitting area, overlooks the foyer.
The lower level has a large, sunny central area with a gas fireplace and wet bar that can function
as a sitting area, home office, or combined space. There is a dedicated gym with a custom
ventilation system, mirrored walls, and shock-absorbing rubber-tile flooring, right next to a
bathroom with a high-pressure shower. Further amenities include a generous guest or in-law
suite, two sets of French doors stepping directly out onto the brick patio and garden, wine cellar,
and radiant floor heat. Uniquely, this level also contains a state-of-the-art compact library system
with rolling stacks like those commonly found in law offices and university libraries.
All in all, this is a quality architect-designed luxury house of the highest quality, in a tranquil,
peaceful, and uncrowded setting, the beauty of which is unusual even for Gladwyne. Homes on
this secluded street do not appear often. Schedule your tour to see and enjoy!
