A New England-inspired custom Colonial designed by award-winning architect Andrew Passacantando sits atop a gentle rise in bucolic Chester Township. Extensive millwork and moldings, custom built-ins and charming niches evoke a sense of understated elegance throughout this exquisite residence. The thought and detail that was incorporated in this renovation is nothing short of amazing. Serene surroundings offer extreme privacy, yet its neighborhood location is close to everyday conveniences. Elegant formal living and dining rooms capture views from tall windows and are well-appointed for gracious entertaining. A music room beyond the living room is accessed by a set of French doors....
