French Country meets Cotswold Cottage on a Sedgwick Farms corner lot in Mount Airy. This stunning early 20th century stone manor sits proudly on an almost half acre lot featuring beautifully manicured landscaping. Approach the three-story home down a hedge lined slate path. The stone construction of the 1st and 2nd stories is inlaid with an abundance of windows and capped with a gorgeous slate roof with arch top dormer windows on the 3rd floor. Three prominent chimneys ascend above the roof line hinting at the 5 fireplaces. Two sunrooms, one to the southeast and one to the southwest, capture the morning and evening light while the southwest orientation of the home provides plenty of natural light throughout the day. A grand center hall is the hub connecting the first floor. This large room features intricate crown molding, decorative woodwork and a large tile fireplace with an efficient, low emission Quadra-Fire stove insert. The living room sits to the southeast, library to the southwest, and the dining room and kitchen to the northwest. The entire first floor is adorned with elegant trim. The light filled living room features a marble fireplace, elaborate millwork, deep sills and a period grand piano. French doors open to the southeast sunroom with stone fireplace, slate floor and access to a lovely garden patio. Crossing the center hall towards the dining room, the elegant wood lined library sits to the left with built in book shelves, a tile fireplace and wood beam ceiling. Original wood pocket doors open to the dining room with upper and lower wainscot, marble fireplace, French doors to the southwest sunroom and access to the kitchen through the pantry. An open layout kitchen completes the first floor with an oversized stainless drainboard, butcher block counter, Bertazzoni stove, stainless appliances and vintage St. Charles cabinets. Upstairs, a massive lead panel window with stained glass inlay greets you on the second-floor landing. A left turn at the top of the stairs leads to a large master suite with en suite bath and dressing/sitting room with a cedar closet. Leave the dressing room by way of a Jack-and-Jill bathroom to find a guest suite with sitting room. Two additional bedrooms and an additional bathroom finish off the 2nd floor. A large third floor delivers a fourth full bath, kitchenette, and 2 to 3 additional bedrooms. Hardwood floors throughout, laundry chute, attached two-car garage, newer gas fired steam boiler (2013). Conveniently located for both transportation and dining. Exactly what a classic home enthusiast is looking for!
