Iconic stone colonial perched on one of the Main Line’s most dramatic lots, walking distance to Ardmore town center. A historic and architectural treasure renovated completely to the highest luxury standards. Built in 1907 for Dr. Joseph M. Reeves, Crestlea, the house "on top of the hill" later became the home to chemical heiress Eleuthera duPont for over 40 years where it was a staple for society gatherings of the old Main Line including orchestra concerts and balls, inspiring a feature in Architectural Digest in 1951. The proportions, detail and Old World charm are absolutely striking. The character and grace of the first floor formal spaces will re-inspire the parties of this bygone era. Glorious light, soaring ceiling height, abundant windows, deep sills, beautiful hardwood floors, five fireplaces and the finest millwork imaginable.
