Property Description

In 1925, original owner Charles Carver named this home "Carolton." The house next to it, on the corner, was built on the rest of what was once the front yard of this house.  A Grande Stone Colonial with romantic large covered porches, columns, ornate moldings, 10 ft+ ceilings and many large decorative windows set on approx 1 level acre of lush private property in Haverford's Merion Golf Manor neighborhood. Pictures simply do not do justice to this beautiful estate with its landscape brimming with trees, bushes & expansive green lawn. This turn-of-the-century home boasts 20-inch thick exterior stone walls, multiple sunrooms, and 6 beautiful fireplaces. This estate has been lovingly maintained & is impeccably preserved and updated to maintain the charm, integrity & authenticity of its era. The front of the home has a dramatic drive through portico and circular drive complemented by generous driveway parking for guests. Exquisite architectural details abound inside, enhancing the unique character with a colonial oak wood staircase, stunning trim & woodwork throughout, deep window sills, walls of glass french doors, beautiful hardwood floors, & pocket doors among the distinctive elements.
