Plenty of stone and beam features

It’s difficult to find seclusion among the many homes neighborhoods set back from the Main Line, but somehow, this wood-covered Villanova house manages it.

Despite its proximity to major roads like County Line and I-476, the home finds privacy in its location. It’s flanked on almost all sides by trees, and it has a style to match. Custom-designed by the owner in the 1980s, it looks like a (large) country cottage or, in the winter, a ski lodge, with a dark wood exterior and stone chimney. Inside, that style continues with vaulted ceilings and plenty of exposed wood beams.

Oversized windows let in a ton of sun, aided in part by light fixtures hidden atop the beams and recessed lighting in the ceiling. Downstairs, a den features another stone fireplace, as well as a wet bar. The home has three beds and two baths in its nearly 3,000 square feet of space.
