25 Mountain Laurel Lane is a one of a kind artful convergence of many creative hands. Entitled “End of the Beginning,” this property is a true sanctuary.
Welcome to End of the Beginning, a delightful country estate in Malvern, Charlestown Township, Chester County. This property is a hidden jewel in an area that maintains its rural character yet provides every amenity.
Upon arrival, you are drawn to explore Greg Leavitt’s 20+ft hand forged steel and copper trees; the koi ponds with lush plantings, stone bridges, meandering waterfalls and a secluded patio. Your senses are filled with the fragrance of herbs and the sounds of flowing water.
Move into the foyer to discover the interior landscape. Take note of the powder room. Then enjoy the curved great room with soaring ceilings and two-story native stone wall with open fireplace. Step into the formal dining room with glass doors leading directly into a large comfortable screened in porch.
Next on to the main kitchen offering European appliances, artisan built radius cabinets and alternating American and Brazilian cherry wood floors. It flows into the family room with a wet bar and Sub-Zero wine refrigerator, more unique built-in cabinetry and another one of a kind powder room. Move from the family room into a full Bulthaup catering kitchen/pantry connected to a large attached two-car garage with cedar paneled walls and ceiling. Walk outside and under a pergola into a climate-controlled building with cedar paneling and a loft. This flexible space currently houses two cars. Discover the potting shed and gorgeous canti-levered patios and look up to see a unique sculptural building with an artisan built bronze and copper roof.
Return to the house and move upstairs, where you will find two bedrooms that share a Jack and Jill bathroom with separate shower and whirlpool tub. Each bedroom offers a ladder to lofts with skylights and a large storage area. Don’t miss the upper hallway house hub with totem pole and craft/office area with built-in desks, cabinets, cubbies and book/display shelves. In the master suite, feast your eyes on Warren Muller’s garden of lights atop a wall in the sitting room and a slider to a private balcony with incredible views of the woodland landscape. Move into the bedroom with vaulted ceiling and unique bathroom with double sinks, open shower, pebble stone floors and teak and slate walls. Completing the suite are two spacious closets with a wet bar, custom glass/steel doors and a staircase to a reading nook with a large closet and access to the other two bedroom lofts.
Be sure to visit the garden level which offers a guest bedroom suite with built-in desk, mini-kitchen, full bath, laundry room, exercise room/flex space and wine closet. Also, on this level, you will find expansive closets and storage space. From the guest room suite, walk outside through a hand-carved door on to a flagstone patio overlooking a living roof covered space used for meditation or for yoga practice or for a three piece jazz combo when entertaining. Beyond is the ten year old stone and cedar guesthouse. This cottage retreat has a calming circular flow with high ceilings, custom skylights, a hand-selected native stone fireplace wall, built-in bed niches, two desks and custom cabinetry. The bedroom features a jaw dropping handmade live-edge wood bed with sky lights, an additional desk area and a bathroom with open shower. There’s a climate controlled basement area.
Complete your tour by wandering along woodland paths. See the Bocce court, the fire pit, the grotto, the tree swing, the garden rooms and more. Fall in love.
