A stately Tudor manor on a 0.82 acre property in Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania is on the market for $1,549,000. Red Bud Manor was built c.1899 as a wedding gift to a member of the prominent Ashbridge family and is said to have been inspired by the Shakespeare Globe Theatre in Stratford-upon-Avon. The current owners have remodelled the residence to accommodate a large gourmet kitchen, upgraded bathrooms, two 200 amp service panels and a five-zone forced air heating and air conditioning system. The main floor offers 10-foot ceilings, original quarter sawn oak panelling and millwork, formal living and dining rooms capable of being closed off, a grand staircase and fireplaces in nearly every room. Upstairs, there are six bedrooms with original yellow pine flooring and a suite with gourmet kitchen. There are a total of six bedroom, four full and one half bathrooms throughout. The rear of the home includes a 1,000 square foot deck with railings inspired by one of the custom designed exterior doors, built-in seating and views over the large backyard with perimeter plantings, a potting shed and raised planting beds. Coupling that with the exquisite Flemish bond brick pattern of the home and copper gutters, it feels very much like the English countryside. A large unfinished basement with brick arches can accommodate a future wine cellar and the enormous walk up open floor attic can be converted into another 1,500 square feet of customized living space. Red Bud Manor is on the market for $1,549,000 with Coldwell Banker.
