Once known as a Tower House, this gem was Horace Trumbauer~s first built home for Wendell & Smith in their Wayne development. It was completed in 1892 by one of the most prominent architects of the Gilded Age, who designed manors for the wealthy & later hotels, office buildings, the Philadelphia Art Museum & much of Duke University. The gorgeous, exceptionally unique home with a front turret & stone arched port-cochere is brimming with magnificent details & tastefully enhanced with over $400K in improvements. All in a prime walk-to-Wayne location, making it a truly prized property. Nestled on over an acre lush grounds, 314 Louella boasts curb appeal galore. The magical outdoor setting features a level lawn, stunning private yard, patio for entertaining & in-ground pool for summer pleasure. Mature landscaping was professionally planted to offer sequential blooming of cherry blossoms, dogwoods, hydrangeas, to name a few. New landscape lighting was installed in 2018, among it, LED lights for trees in the front lawn, to the stone pillars at the driveway entrance. The house is perfect for any family that wants to keep as-is, make minor updates, OR do a major addition (G/F sealed construction drawings, a $40K value, come with the sale). The original carriage house/garage, rebuilt in 1989, affords possibilities as an in-law suite, gym, office, etc. Expansion over the existing parking spaces in front of the basketball hoop can allow for 2 more garage spaces (for a total of 4) & additional living area above. Reinforced beams over the port-cochere enable versatility to create a sitting room, walk-in closet & bath as part of the adjacent BR atop the covered porch. The slate roof has been well maintained & improved with new snow guards, copper flashing, copper ridge capping, etc. Among other upgrades are a newly repaved driveway, new retaining wall & basketball hoop (2019), all new mechanicals under 5 years old including HVAC, steam boiler heat & HW heater, whole house rewiring, refinished wood floors, an expanded master suite & laundry room, and new marble master bath with heated floors, his/her vanities, pedestal tub & shower with Bluetooth speaker & electronic controls for 6 heads. Relax with family & guests in the large kitchen with a glass breakfast area & spacious dining room. Watch movies in the family room/den with cozy heated floors. Bright, generously-proportioned rooms include 5 bedrooms & 4.5 baths. Sip wine & chat on the lovely front porch. Enjoy warm days & evenings in the rear yard, deck & pool. Cheer the kids playing sports on the lawn & basketball court. The perks continue with an unbeatable location, 4 blocks to the center of Wayne, in the top-ranked Radnor school district, near major highways, shops, restaurants, the train to Center City & much more.
