Property Description

Nestled on a quiet cul-de-sac in the established community of Highland Lane, 21 Shannon Circle is a hidden gem. Upon entering the iron gates and rolling up to the exquisite and stately facade, you are immediately transported to a feeling of being in the Italian countryside. The impressive entry surrounds you with pristine landscaping, a circular driveway, and a charming carriage house dripping with ivy and an idyllic courtyard. This 10,000+ sq ft country home was originally designed by Peabody and Stearns in 1919 and is a former Philadelphia Vassar Designer Show Home finished with 5 spacious bedrooms, 4 full baths, 2 powder rooms, and guest quarters with its own separate entrance, formal living, and dining rooms, kitchenette, 2 bedrooms and a full bath. Built to recreate the feeling of an Italian country house dating back to 15th and 16th-century architectural elements, this superb estate has been remodeled over the years, yet maintains the integrity of the original architectural features and custom detail from the 1919 build. A grand entrance will have your guests feeling like royalty as they step through the double door entry to find unparalleled detail in the rich mahogany millwork. No expense was spared from the carved arch doorway off the vestibule into the formal foyer to the imported Italian stone flooring, rich coffered ceilings, a cascading staircase where elements of fine craftsmanship continue, a focal fireplace, and tall Palladian doorways that create a panoramic view leading to the outdoor terrace. This sprawling main level allows for entertaining with ease inside and out in several spaces starting in the stately Library greeted by an oversized pocket door and lined by bookshelves that seamlessly blend with the beamed ceiling and custom solid doorway to the outdoor loggia boasting imported stone-carved accents on the walls. This space opens up to a serene outdoor flagstone patio on the west end of the home. Inside on the east end of the home resides an elegant formal dining room and sunroom perfect for hosting large dinner parties or events. Certain aspects of the home await your personal touches to reimagine new spaces such as a gourmet kitchen situated off of the dining room offers a spectacular space for building the kitchen of your dreams boasting soaring ceilings and stunning views! Ascend the magnificent winding staircase to the upper level, or for ease and convenience by way of the elevator to find 5 spacious bedrooms including an elegant suite at each end of the home appointed with a private bath and access to its own terrace to enjoy the bucolic views and a warm cup of morning coffee. Bound to be a favorite space to spend on beautiful days is the large terrace off of the back of the home. As you step out onto this impressive landing, the old-world charm continues with fresco painting on the ceiling of the covered portion while timeless fixtures light the terrace at night. An elongated staircase descends into the manicured backyard surrounded by true privacy on this expansive 1.77-acre property. It is a truly rare opportunity to own this unique landmark estate that harmonizes exquisite living space and unparalleled detail! Schedule a private showing today, as this estate is one to be seen in person to appreciate every aspect.
