It can be tough to find Robert McElroy-designed gems around the Main Line, because they’re often tucked into hillsides or hidden away on secluded multi-acre properties. So it’s always a treat to stumble upon the architect’s midcentury moderns, like this 5-bedroom, 3.5-bath home in Villanova.
The two-story, 3,817-square-foot property sits on nearly two acres. It features many of his signature design elements, like a sloped roof, floor-to-ceiling windows, and vaulted ceilings in the main living area.
Although it was built in 1982, the home has had a wealth of recent upgrades that keep it from looking dated. There’s a new roof, chimney, siding, and AC units, and the hardwood floors have been refinished. The 150-bottle wine fridge and backyard pool and spa are nice touches, too.
The asking price of this home is $1,350,000.
