One of Radnor Township’s finest estate homes, 365 Conestoga Road blends traditional and modern elements to create an enduring elegance. Built circa 1929 on 2.4 acres in Wayne, the Arts and Crafts-style residence is the design of Bissell & Sinkler, the famed architectural firm of Philadelphia. Purchased by a real estate holding company in 2017, the home is now fully restored, renovated, and modernized; renovations by KingsHaven Properties and staging by KingsHaven Design, completed in 2018.
Stunning architectural details and tasteful living spaces illustrate the team’s careful restoration practices and passion for creating a ‘forever’ home to inspire for generations. The result is a rare, complete balance of function and seamless design: it is timeless yet contemporary, grand yet beautifully intimate. Exquisite leaded-glass windows shower the home with natural light; new hand-crafted iron fixtures add continuity and texture; carved limestone fireplaces suggest warmth and welcome; rare chestnut paneling and wide-plank flooring as well as red-clay-tile roof proclaim the home’s refined materials and construction; new luxurious amenities and modern improvements (e.g., the state-of-the-art geothermal HVAC system) elevate the home’s performance to match its sophisticated grandeur.
