Magnificent mid-century modern residence in an incredible location! This architecturally significant home THE MITCHELL RESIDENCE was designed in 1956 by one of Philadelphia's 20th century architects to achieve world recognition. Ehrman B. Mitchell (1925-2005),co-founding partner of Mitchell/Giurgola, designed and built this home as his personal residence. This is the first time it has ever been on the market. Ownership within the family has maintained the outstanding, original design features, unaltered and in pristine condition. The home has the qualities of a modern classic, with an open floor plan, connection to its beautiful setting, and wonderful light filled spaces. Incredible stonework enhances its substantial presence to a level rarely achieved in a mid-century residence. The scale of this elegant home is ideal for entertaining with its grand spaces, but it also has an understated intimate feel. The OUTSTANDING LOCATION encourages a walk into Fairmount Park and the Chestnut Hill section of Philadelphia. The area has award winning schools, and close to a variety of restaurants and shopping options. It is on what feels like a small country lane, but has very quick access to expressways/train to either center city Philadelphia or NYC. The extensive gardens can be viewed from walls of windows. The home is set on 2.5 acres with a stream and total privacy in all directions. Two adjacent properties are set on 30 acres each.
