REMARKS:

For those who appreciate timeless traditional elegance, Penlyn Farm combines a classic, refined approach to living with all of the conveniences of modern life. Nestled on 6+ acres in highly desirable Gwynedd Valley and in the award winning Wissahickon School District, this equestrian estate was designed by renowned Philadelphia architect Edmund B. Gilchrist. The stately manor home has retained many of it’s beautiful original details. A few examples: the copper roof and four beautiful wood burning fireplaces, without sacrificing modern amenities like central air conditioning and updated bathrooms. Built in 1939 for E. George Lavino, a Philadelphia Industrialist, the property has only witnessed 2 owners in 82 years. Completely updated in 1980, this residence boasts 7 bedrooms, 5 full bathrooms, 2 half baths, a linen room, a cedar room, a butler’s kitchen, a trophy room along with the other standard rooms found in a home with over 6000+ square feet of living space. Completing this equestrian estate is a renovated bank barn for horses, a regulation dressage ring, and post and rail fenced pastures. When entering the oversized foyer you will instantly be drawn to the details in this house: high ceilings, the rich patina on the hardwood floors, a grand staircase, strategic room layouts, superb classic woodworking, detailed moldings, decorative fireplaces, gorgeous light and bathroom fixtures, and doors and windows arranged to enhance your view of the bucolic grounds. Much like many houses found in Chestnut Hill and Mt. Airy designed by Gilchrist, he designed rooms with beautiful windows and French doors to bring in natural light and nature into view from every angle. Gilchrist used exterior metals and metal designs to enhance his exterior architectural revival styles. This property is a 1 of kind estate, created specifically for entertaining and relaxing. The grounds are park-like with mature hardwood trees, scenic views and a gazebo for summer outside parties. Come an
