Historic "Black Oak Farm", with its Federal Style architecture, harkens back to a world gone by. Originally a part of a Penn Grant from the 17th Century, many original features still remain, including hardwood floors, deep windowsills, trim, light fixtures and hardware. Set on lush grounds with a beautiful swimming pool, the property provides private elegance inside and out, with numerous tasteful renovations made by the current owners (kitchen, master bath, guest baths). The home is entered via the stately covered porch with its standing seam metal roof, overlooking the pool and grounds. The front entrance leads into the Living Room with a large stone fireplace and the original built-in cashier's desk. Behind the Living Room is a spacious eat-in-kitchen with custom cabinetry, granite counters, 6-burner Dacor gas stove, double oven, wood beams, and exposed brick. There is a large island and ample room for an additional sitting or eating area. The kitchen is a warm and homey place to entertain and relax as a family. The formal Dining Room features a gas Rumford with gouge-work on the wood mantel. This room leads into the Office (which is also accessible from the Living Room) with built-in bookcases, and onwards into a Full Bath and Sunroom with hot tub that could function as your own personal Spa. The formal Dining Room, Office and Spa could be easily combined to form a sumptuous first floor Master Suite. On the second floor is the Master Suite with two sets of large wall closets and a tastefully renovated marble bath featuring a jacuzzi tub, stylish vanity, rain showers. The Second Bedroom Suite features a decorative fireplace, another beautifully renovated bathroom, and a large walk in closet. Down the hall is a Third Bedroom. The third floor features Bedrooms 4 and 5, a Full Bath, a Laundry Room, a Kitchenette and a large Family Room. Outside among gardens is a well-fed 16' x 33' Viking Paddock swimming pool with updated patios, electric and wifi for relaxing and entertaining. The property includes a 24' x 17' barn space used for parties, casual relaxing or a garage. The home has not only been meticulously updated but meticulously maintained: public sewer connection, upgrade to 300 amp electrical service and new cedar shake roof added in Summer 2015. Located just moments from Ridley Creek State Park and the Tyler Arboretum, this lovely setting is just minutes from Media, within easy access of the airport, and public transit to Philadelphia.
