A 1930s estate tucked away in Bryn Mawr on the Main Line has come to the market, and hark back to the English countryside.

The 2.79-acre estate was originally designed by Walter Durham as one of his earlier works. The architect would later go on to design dozens more mansions and homes on the Main Line.

But while much of the home’s original details remain, it has undergone significant upgrades, including a slew of renovations in the 1990s. Per the listing, while Durham originally designed a home catered to host formal gathering spaces, the manor has since been optimized to encourage more “casual entertaining.”

Today, the home clocks in at an impressive 9,149 square feet and features two major wings, four bedrooms, and seven bathrooms. Although nearly all of the rooms are impressive, the two-story library is definitely a showstopper, as are the landscaped English gardens that were designed by local company Gale Nurseries.

The asking price of the home is $3,100,000.
