About This 1912 Tudor Revival In Bryn Mawr Pennsylvania
Graceful, grand and character-laden, “Littlefield Farm” is a Tudor Revival home of exceptional appeal and timeless quality designed by the firm of Duhring, Okie & Ziegler in 1912 for Edwin L. Blabon and his family. From its stone and half-timber exterior with the fancy, carved fascia board to its bays and chimney stacks, it looks much the same as it did 110 years ago thanks to the stewardship of its present owners. The home’s design allows for all the principal rooms to take advantage of expansive southern exposures and garden views.
The artfully designed floor plan showcases inviting, expansive, formal spaces perfect for entertaining while also allowing for intimate family gatherings. The home has been completely restored by the current owners creating the perfect marriage of original details, antiques and all the modern conveniences. The home offers a custom, gourmet, chef’s, eat-in kitchen with expansive pantry and exquisite butler’s pantry, a state-of-the-art 9,000-bottle wine cellar, elegant dining room with fireplace, formal library with fireplace, grand entrance hall lined with hand-carved wood panels with sitting area and fireplace, family room with fireplace and billiards room.
The private areas of the home feature 7 guest suites and baths and then a private primary suite with sitting area and private stair to the first level. In addition to bedrooms located in the main house, there is a ‘spa-like’ guest house overlooking the sumptuous pool area and also a separate two-car carriage house with guest suite above. Hidden at the end of a lane, Littlefield Farm is truly a special home for the most discerning buyer.
