Have you heard that upsizing and downsizing are a thing of the past? Today there is only Rightsizing for smart buyers who refuse to be tied down to an oversized house or stuck in a tiny city apartment with no yard. Right size yourself into this meticulously maintained move in ready home with a beautifully landscaped pool and spa on a private pristine picturesque lot. The three bed, two full /two half bath home is in an exclusive enclave in the much sought-after town of Haverford. Reminiscent of a French country property, 71 Caenarvon is elegant yet modest. Upon approach you will be pleased by the natural stone wall surround and quaint flagstone courtyard abundant with greenery and a koi pond. Once inside the two-story entrance foyer you will admire the artistic contemporized stair railing designed by architect Ann Witkes and custom crafted by DeVitos Custom Iron Works. Complimenting the railing is a chic custom Euro styled foyer light fixture with a hydraulic lift. French doors lead to the dining room where recessed low voltage lighting can set a romantic mood. The sunny living room is next to the family room where you can snuggle up in front of the stylish glass fireplace highlighted by a Silestone base. A truly special place in the house is the sunroom with a display of large windows that overlook a back yard that could be showcased in a magazine. Professional landscaping with boxwoods, sculpted evergreens and estate fencing delineates sections of the yard for outdoor dining on a circular paved patio or relaxing next to the blue Gunite Pool and spa. The pool was built by Pebble Pools and is regularly serviced by Paragon Pool company. A new Aquavite heater was installed in 2019 and when the pool was resurfaced. Stone walls and steps from the original mansion which elegantly accent much of the flat rear yard would be hard to replicate today. In addition, there is an IPE Brazilian rainforest hard wood deck (2016) and a newly built shed (2020) for pool equipment storage. The spectacular grounds are kept hydrated with an upgraded Rainmaker sprinkler system (2015). Back inside the home is the custom kitchen with center granite island seating and prep sink, custom floor to ceiling cabinets, with some glass front accents and a wine rack, provide ample storage. Sub-Zero refrigerator, double oven, 2017 dishwasher, trash compactor, garbage disposal, high hats and 2018 Minka-Aire ceiling fan with dimming and reverse features add function to beauty. The convenient first floor master bedroom and bathroom complete the main floor living space. The master bathroom was completely gutted and rebuilt (2016) with marble heated floors, Caesarstone counter tops with custom floating cabinets, high end Kohler products including fixtures, double sinks, toilets and a glass enclosed floor to ceiling Koehler steam shower. Upstairs are two more good sized bedrooms with custom outfitted closets and a completely redone full hall bath. The finished lower level has easy to maintain floors, Twin Edge Star wine coolers recessed into the wall with a 242-bottle capacity, Sonos sound system with separate base woofer and infra-red remote switching, and a cedar closet by Closet by Design. Other upgrades include new 16 Seer A/C and heater on the main floor (2018), newly repaved driveway (2020), Kenmore Smart Gas high Efficiency Dryer and Kenmore Electric Washer (both 2017), an upgraded garage system: Liftmaster garage opener and keyless entry pad (2017). All this in a location that can’t be beat: near Merion Golf Course, central to public and private schools, public transportation, the airport, major roadways, shopping, fine dining, Bryn Mawr Hospital, Septa Regional Rail, and is part of the desirable Coopertown Elementary School.
