**All showings by appointment only and following PA guidelines.** Welcome to 3-7 Ayrshire Drive, the original, Cotswold style, gatehouse twin home that stands guard at the entrance to Ardrossan, in Villanova, one of the most coveted communities on Philadelphia's Main Line. Don't miss this rare opportunity to purchase 1 of 4 semi-detached worker's cottages on the former Ardrossan Estate. These charming identical twins have been completely gutted down to the studs and now offer a modern, sophisticated living opportunity with brand new amenities in a bucolic setting. 3-7 Ayrshire is being sold as one listing, containing 2 units, offering a variety of opportunities. Purchase the twin structure for investment or resale purposes, live on one side and rent out the other or reconfigure the property as a single family home. Situated on a flat, newly landscaped, .80 acre lot. Each twin has been completely reconfigured and renovated and now offers 2 Bedrooms, 2 Full baths and a main level powder room. Enter the first floor through either the family entry or the rear courtyard entry door to a stunning, all white, sun filled kitchen with elegant quartz countertops, built-in Whirlpool appliances and island seating which separates the dining area/family room or home office. Restored, original, hearty pine floors throughout. The first floor also includes a powder room in the family entryway, just outside of the quaint living room which is tucked in the middle of the home and includes a handsome gas fireplace, custom wood surround and mantle, and large windows overlooking both the eastern (Ivy Lane) and western (Tyler Lane) views of Ardrossan Farms. Wide, white Plantation shutters cover every window. Back to the family entry, climb the stairs where on the left you find the spacious Master bedroom with a walk in closet, custom built-ins, recessed lighting and a brand new chic Master bath done in a calming, white & gray, ceramic tiled walk in shower with double sink, carrara marble vanity countertops. On the right side you pass a spacious hall closet before leading down the hall to bedroom #2 and full bath#2 featuring an all white tub/shower with modern, hi gloss, beveled subway tiles. Make your way back to the rear entry/kitchen area where you find the door to the basement. Completely waterproofed and spotless. Brand new LG washer/dryer & laundry area. Ample open space ready for becoming an extra playroom, office, or simply a storage room. You will find the details highlight the expert craftsmanship that went in to lovingly restoring this unique piece of history. The entire interior, all windows, wiring, plumbing, heating and A/C have been replaced and updated. 2 heating zones and 1 central A/C zone. Live among some of the most beautiful homes in Radnor, on the magical grounds of a gentleman's farm, that at one time included over 800 rolling acres from Godfrey to Church Roads. What makes this property more incredible is the close proximity to town, schools, shopping and restaurants. Go for peaceful walks or enjoy the pastoral setting from your luxurious rear yard. Includes a detached 3 car garage and ample parking spots on the newly seal coated asphalt driveway. Public sewer and water. Located in the award winning Radnor School District and minutes to all major roadways for an easy commute to Philadelphia, Wilmington and the airport! Asking price is for both twins. One unit is currently being rented. Listing agent will provide information upon request. Don't wait to tour this unique rare opportunity!
