Up until the early 20th Century, over 100 acres of this area of Elkins Park was known as Fountain Farm. Owned by Thomas Thomson, he was the Son of a well-regarded local Quaker family and lived his entire life on the farm. Upon his death in 1908, the lands were completely sub-divided and the farm became Township history. His daughter, Elizabeth Thomson married Herbert Taylor in 1897 and in 1927, hired Heacock & Hokanson to design & construct their home on a 1+ acre parcel that is now 8211 Cedar Road. This classic center hall Colonial has all the hallmarks of quality construction & design. The central entry has a porch with large columns to greet your guests. The central hallway has a coat closet and the powder room. Direct access to the rear yard is at the end of the hall. The living room is enhanced with recessed lighting and a set of built-in bookcases that flank the entry to the family room. The family room overlooks the rear yard and has direct access to the upper patio through a set of French doors along with another set of built-in cabinets. The sunroom is flooded with light through an abundance of windows. The dining room has a large bay window and a china closet. The original butler~s pantry provides great storage in its floor to ceiling cupboards. Pass by the rear staircase and you enter into a beautifully crafted custom kitchen that was completely reconfigured and expanded in 2012. A large circular bar provides seating for 5. Viking appliances flank the staircase wall providing double ovens and a French door cabinet depth fridge. The 5-burner Viking gas cooktop, a custom vent hood, built-in microwave drawer and the under-mount sink is angled into the corner with the dishwasher on the South wall. The far rear corner is the beverage station that includes a built-in wine cooler and more cabinets for storing the stemware and other necessary items. The kitchen has radiant floor heating placed under the hardwood Oak flooring. The guest bedroom now incorporates what was once the original sleeping porch and is a spacious & light filled bedroom with a completely modern bathroom. The back staircase comes directly up onto the 2nd floor hallway and there is also a huge storage/linen closet. Through a set of reclaimed French doors, you enter into the Master sleeping chamber with recessed lighting, picture moldings and French doors to the deck with lovely views of the rear gardens. The artfully re-imagined master bathroom has dual vanities, a beautiful slipper tub and a large walk-in shower. Radiant floor heating was placed under the marble tiles. At the end of the bathroom, a former bedroom was converted into a huge master walk-in closet with custom organizers on all 4 walls. The third floor has the remaining 3 bedrooms and 2 more full bathrooms. The house is serviced by dual-zoned, high-velocity central air conditioning systems. Conditional approval was given to the Owners (in-law, parental use only) to convert/expand the garage into a 1-bedroom in-law suite. It now has a large living room area, powder room, a wall of built-in bookcases and a small breakfast area next to the efficient galley kitchen. There is a staircase to the 2nd floor loft area and a door to the bedroom at the rear of the building. A full bath and a wall of closets completes this great space. Now finally, let~s talk about the rear grounds. There are three distinct entertainment patios. The first of which is directly off of the sunroom and the family room. Down a few steps, a walled dining patio with exterior lighting connects to a circular patio just in front of the detached carriage house. A hard-lined gas grille is just off this patio. The original cement pond with a lovely fountain/statue provides those wonderful sounds of constantly trickling water. It~s a peaceful oasis surrounded by more large rhododendrons, azaleas and hollies. A level grassy area is behind all the entertainment patios as well as a garden shed to store all the yard equipment.
