    Description

    Nestled among 42 Acres of dedicated, Natural Lands Trust with views of centuries-old trees remains a significant part of Gwynedd Valley history. Originally built for his bride in 1922, Alfred Smith of Smith Barney assembled an amazing estate on what is now referred to as Meadow Farm. The next(significant) chapter in the home's history was when the property conveyed to the Lippincott family, a well-known Philadelphia based publishing house, which later hosted Maria von Trapp for a period while she wrote "The Story of the Trapp Family Singers" which is of course the story that inspired The Sound of Music. 1987 brought more change to the once sprawling 16,000 sq. ft. Estate that included both a Stable and Gate House. Trueblood Builders split the estate and created a more manageable, European styled home. Current owners have continued to improve and update every facet of this home now sited on 2.16 acres, while maintaining the integrity of its' original finishes. Mercer tile flooring greets you upon entry into the expansive, arched front doorway and floating staircase of this nearly 8,000 sq. ft. manor home hosting 5 Bedrooms, 4.5 baths, multiple fireplaces, exquisite Chef's Kitchen, Catering Kitchen, Formal Living and Dining Rooms, each with separate egresses to the slate patio overlooking the well manicured grounds which include both an in-ground pool, and tennis court. An incredibly unique home, opportunity, and location await the next steward of this magnificent estate.
