Philadelphia Dreaming

Katharine Hepburn is draped languidly upon a terrace lounge. Cary Grant’s eyes twinkle above the rim of his martini glass. Philadelphia’s Main Line. Sparkling, sophisticated, absolutely aspirational.

The Main Line spurs out from the city along the rail route west, the town names are storied. Among them: Villanova, Haverford, Bala Cynwyd, Bryn Mawr, Gladwyne and Penn Valley. They are among the wealthiest, most coveted communities in the country. Just the place to write your own Philadelphia Story.

In Penn Valley, a private lane leads to a grand stone 1930s manor house designed by renowned Philadelphia architect Erling Pedersen. It is among the rarest of the rare, an English country house set upon three magnificent acres.

“This is one of the most special properties we’ve had the pleasure of being part of,” says Jennifer Rinella who is co-listing the property with Jane Hall, both multi-award winning agents with BHHS Fox and Roach Realtors. “It feels like you’re in the country, but you’re in the city in fifteen minutes. That’s pretty amazing.”

And, Hall adds, “it’s only a couple of stops on Amtrak into New York City -- you can be there in under two hours.”

While the five-bedroom, five-bath home has been beautifully updated, original architectural details have been meticulously preserved. The original sweeping staircase highlights the grand two-story foyer, fireplaces warm the splendid living room, formal dining room and the sublime master suite with its balcony view of rolling hills, glorious gardens, pool and spa.

You can also see the out buildings, the storybook gardener’s cottage, the guest apartment over the four-car garage and the barn, perfect for horses we’re assured. “You don’t usually have that this close to the city,” says Rinella.

“It’s a great family home with the feel of an estate,” says Hall. “It’s warm, nicely sized and has easy access to all Philadelphia has to offer.”

And that setting is to sigh for, which Rinella readily does. “When I’m waiting for appointments, I sit on the patio looking over gardens and think -- I can just sit here forever.”

Live Large in Dallas - Highland Park

This iconic Highland Park residence has been restored in exquisite detail and expanded to more than 12,000 square feet of sumptuous living space surrounded by lush gardens, water features and multiple outdoor living areas.  Known as the Ferris Mansion, the house was built in 1923 on an oversized corner lot, with prominent craftsmen from the northeastern U.S. and Europe enlisted to execute its elaborate stone, glass and hand carved wood details. 


A three-year restoration and expansion began in 2008 to preserve and amplify the original architect’s Italian Renaissance aesthetic with new infrastructure and a floor plan for modern entertaining and everyday living.  The result is a seamless integration of important architecture, modern convenience and timeless style with six bedrooms, five baths, three half baths, seven living areas inside and three outdoor living areas. 
 
The front section of the house includes a grand entry hall and two formal living rooms on the first level.  On axis with the living room fireplace, a gallery lined with arched glass doors extends south uniting the formal living areas with an elegant dining room, a spacious kitchen and an incredible two-story paneled library.  A double staircase from the gallery descends to an extraordinary underground entertaining space with a game room, bar, wine cellar, tasting room, theater and gym—all groin vaulted beneath the swimming pool and garden.

The second level of the home features four bedroom suites, a living room, domestic space and the master suite.  Occupying much of the second level of the front of the house, the master suite is private and truly breathtaking with every amenity including a private loggia overlooking the pool.
 
Mature trees, cut stone walkways and cast stone details frame the beautiful landscape that surrounds the house.  Arched glass doors throughout the main level open to picturesque grounds, terraces and elegant outdoor living areas, uniting the whole property for entertaining and creating a serene and restful daily living environment like no other.


Located near the Dallas Country Club, outstanding schools and the finest dining and shopping venues in Texas.

A native Texan, Alex Trusler is the Executive Vice President and Broker Associate of Trusler-Seale and works with Briggs Freeman | Sotheby’s International Realty.  He has been helping discriminating clients find the perfect home since 2008.

Palatial Living in the Heart of Chicago - Chicago, Illinois

Setting a new record for scale and luxury at a listing price of $50 million is an unprecedented urban estate in exclusive Lincoln Park, on what is “arguably the best residential street in Chicago,” says Matt Leutheuser of Jameson Sotheby’s International Realty.

Leutheuser, who is co-listing the 25,000 square foot mansion along with Tim Salm, says the details are extraordinary, with materials sourced from around the globe; primarily influenced by classic French architecture and design. 

Nestled in extravagant gardens with fountains, a reflecting pool, and a grand pavilion on over eight contiguous city lots, the realtor says, “You feel like you’re in the middle of the French countryside -- in the middle of the city. To acquire this many contiguous lots in Lincoln Park is next to impossible.” 

Throughout the house, each room is graced with intricate marble and stone work, antique features and elements, magnificent fireplaces and elaborately carved plaster moldings. A spectacular rotunda, with a marble floor and gold leafed staircase soars three levels, crowning the entryway. 

“The wine cellar is absolutely stunning and is modeled after the stables of Versailles,” says Leutheuser. 

This is a home for entertaining on an embassy scale, with multiple expansive living areas, including the ball room, music room, library, media room, and game room, surrounded by windows and flowing out to the fabulous sprawling terrace. There’s an unimaginable amount of outdoor space for entertaining along with impressive manicured gardens which surround the property.

“Absolutely no detail has been overlooked in this home” says Leutheuser, who is recognized as one of the city's top producers by the Chicago Association of Realtors.

Yet, this is an impressively comfortable family home as well, with six bedrooms, including a master suite that redefines luxury, and a bespoke kitchen that’s beyond belief. 

“Perfect,” says Leutheuser, “for the individual that can appreciate the level of detail this home offers and who understands that an opportunity like this may not come along again.  It could take years, if it’s even possible, to put together this amount of land and build this level of home”

Luxurious Makena Estate - Maui, Hawaii

Located at the southern part of the south resort district of Maui, adjacent to Wailea, is Makena, “a very special place that is hard to describe unless you’ve been there,” says Tom Tezak, Maui real estate specialist and co-owner/broker with Wailea Realty.

Situated in Makena Place -- a gated enclave containing 10 luxurious homes -- is an exquisite 4 bedroom with 2 en-suites upstairs including the master and two downstairs, 4.5 bath, 4,000-square-foot oceanfront retreat recently renovated with stunning detail. The .28-acre lot is the most sought out location within the community with a secluded side yard and easy access to the ocean where you can launch your kayak or paddleboard.

From the moment you walk through the impressive glass front door into the gracious open entry, you're enveloped by the feeling of the warmth and luxury of this island oasis. Travertine floors are throughout the open lower level, expect for carpet in the bedrooms.  Your gaze is immediately directed to an expansive wall of sliding glass pocket doors. Cool ocean breezes sweep through the home when these doors are open, creating an indoor/outdoor space between the living room and covered deck. Here you can captivate your days poolside and watching turtles and whales just off the shore.

A gorgeous wrought iron and wood staircase wraps around to the upper level where you'll find the spacious guest ensuites and master retreat. The master bedroom is a grand island bungalow with grass cloth ceiling and doors that open across the front of the room to a balcony overlooking the picturesque ocean. The master bathroom also has a private, floor-to-ceiling view of the water from the soaking tub.

"I love the home, property and location," says current homeowner of 4950 Makena Place. "But the best thing about this property is the onsite property manager." Having been on site since the beginning, the property manager understands the nuances of Makena Place and meticulously handles all the details of your home.

 

Entertain guests at either the complex's private sport court with a game of tennis or basketball or the beautiful, hidden crescent beach. Although the community elicits the feeling of living on a remote part of the island, you are a 6-minute drive from some of the best shopping, dining and activities in all of Hawaii.
