Property Description

Welcome to 415 Dove Lake Road! This 5 bedroom, 4.5 bath, 3100 square foot home is nestled in a hillside, across from Dove Lake. If you are looking for a typical Main Line McMansion, you are in the wrong place. This home does not have a chemically treated perfect green lawn. Instead, you are surrounded by Nature. Numerous trees, older rhododendrons and hand built walls encircle the home. When night falls, the frogs from Dove Lake join the sound of the nearby waterfall. Walking around outside, sometimes you will feel like someone is watching you~don~t worry, it is only the neighborhood owl. Sitting outside at night, only eight miles from Center City, you feel like you are in the Poconos. If you want seclusion, this house is your dream. At most, you may see your neighbors once a month. The only ~neighbors~ that face the home are the frogs, turtles and herons that live in Dove Lake, across the street. Schedule a night time visit and you will see how quiet and peaceful it is. The current owners purchased the house from the couple who built it in the 1950~s. Yes, a two owner house. The sellers then took the kitchen, former laundry room, dining room and kitchen down to the studs, rebuilding most of the first floor with an open floor plan that is perfect for entertaining. Hand printed wallpaper in the dining room creates a jewel box effect. The kitchen hosts an induction stove top in the island, cherry cabinets, two ovens, two dishwashers, foot pedal controls for the sink and a separate station for cooking pancakes, pork roll, cheesesteaks and burgers on the included commercial flat top griddle. A separate ~suite~ was designed and built by the previous owners to allow privacy. This bedroom has a private bathroom with shower. It is accessed by a custom built back stairway and is perfect for guests, au pair, or could be used as an in-law suite. Plenty of parking is available as the driveway wraps around the house. Need room for multiple cars or toys? This driveway allows three cars to be parked, with two more in the garage. At the bottom of the driveway is an 18th century spring house that can be used for gardening supplies or storage. The main house and the spring house each have a brand new roof. The electrical service to the house was replaced in 2015. New gutters were installed in the last three years. The oil tank is a top of the line, double walled unit that was installed in 2013.
