This large, expanded Cape offers you a rare opportunity to live in the only main line resort community.
It’s not often that an opportunity to live in Leopard Lakes comes along. This is one of those rare opportunities.
Leopard Lakes in Berwyn is the only year-round resort community on the main line. And this extended Cape Cod home in Berwyn for sale faces the lake.
It’s not right on the lake, but it’s located so you can see it through the two-story windows of its family room, just to the left of the lobby.
This two-story wing, added in 2005, is part of the reason this home doesn’t look like mid-1950s Cape Cod. You’ll also notice that the construction project added many colonial details to the home, both inside and outside.
To the right of the two-story foyer is the formal living room, which is currently used as a billiard room. French doors lead to it and the adjacent formal dining room leads to a covered slate patio, to the right of which a door leads to the two-car garage.
The formal dining room, directly behind the fireplace, has a large bay window overlooking the landscaped back yard.
And across the hall from the family room, you’ll find the eat-in kitchen, which has everything you need for creative cooking and graceful entertaining.
The ground floor also contains a cloakroom, a shower room, an en-suite bedroom and this home office. You could also use this room as a playroom or bedroom, and this end of the floor also makes a good au pair or in-laws suite.
Stairs lead from the family room to the three bedrooms on the second floor.
The other two share a bathroom, while the master bedroom includes a sitting area next to the skylight facing the lake, two dressing rooms and a bathroom with double sinks and bathtub. There is also a bonus room that overlooks the family room and windows overlooking the lake.
The basement contains the laundry room, storage space, another powder room and a finished playroom.
The finest amenities, however, are all outside the home. Specifically, Leopard Lake and the other recreational facilities in the community. These include tennis courts, a beach and hiking trails.
You can swim, kayak or canoe on the lake in the summer and ice skate or play ice hockey in the winter.
But if you don’t feel like heading to the lake even though it’s only a block away, this extended Cape Cod home for sale in Berwyn comes with its own complex: a pool next door. from the games room in the basement. The pool in the fenced yard has an outdoor shower and an adjacent patio for lounging. It also connects to the landscaped backyard, which is also set up for outdoor entertaining with shelving where you can install candles built into its slate walls.
There may be other homes as attractive and well-appointed on the Main Line as this one, but very few of them have their own year-round resort. This one does.
