    Description

    ~FernLedge~ served as the garden center for Frank Furness' masterpiece known as "Dolobran". Built in 1881, "Dolobran" was the country estate of Clement A. Griscom. It was designed by Furness in 1881 and altered by him in 1894. FernLedge was the idea of Griscom's childrenwho wanted Furness to design a summer house and suggested it be built on the stone footprint of Dolobran's greenhouse. With a magical terrace , pool and gazebo above, and a stone-walled flowering rose and iris garden path below, that blooms from spring through fall and connects the patio to the garden room just outside of the dining room~s French doors, this one-of-a-kind home sits back, secluded from the road; its charm evoking an English garden cottage with a setting that exudes the feel of living in the Cotswolds, with storybook garden views from every window and out every doorway.The setting affords the perfect privacy and is, in short, a true gardener's paradise; connected to nature and surrounded by beauty. Quiet yet very close to shopping and the Haverford Station. FernLedge is an oasis for the soul while close enough for you to handily enjoy the amenities of life on the Main Line and attractions of the city.One-floor living with three wings allows for a flexible lifestyle and a forever home where stages of life and work are easily accommodated by the ability to re-purpose rooms from nursery, bedrooms, to home office or studio etc., while the kitchen and dining room remain at the hub. Presently the home is arranged with a master suite in the north wing containing a raised bed chamber, master bath, office, sauna and laundry. With 5 exits that connect to the outdoors there is an easy flow that invites access to the garden rooms and terrace as well as outdoor dining and entertaining on the breakfast deck, patio and thru the double doors of the formal dining room.
