Westbourne Woods – A unique, custom build, combining everything on the must have list of the most discerning buyer: premier address; solid stone exterior construction, interior finishes evidencing the finest of craftmanship, generous square footage, unique spaces for both living and playing and acres of expertly manicured lawn. This is the home which all the superlatives really do apply. Westbourne Woods is the product of a marriage between the Main Line’s premier architect and most acclaimed high end builder. Just 14 years ago, F.L. Bissinger summoned one of his unique, Artisan Revival Style designs to E.B. Mahoney, whose name is synonymous with the highest in quality building standards. The resulting, expertly Colonial residence consists of three finished levels, positioned on 8 acres, with an additional adjoining lot of more than 6.5 acres available for purchase. Inside are 6-7 Bedrooms, 7 full baths and 4 half Baths, five fireplaces, an in-home theatre, wine cellar, indoor swimming pool, baseball batting cage, gym quarters and a 4 car Garage. Energy is partially supplied by solar panels. Twenty minutes from CC Philadelphia and a short drive from the links of the famed Philadelphia Country Club, drive through the gates of 1520 Monk Rd.
