    Description

    Sitting high atop a hill adjacent to Saunders Woods Preserve, 1038 Rock Creek Road is a beautifully custom, completely renovated five bedroom mansion boasting spectacular views. This residence is rich with history, as it was the childhood home of former NFL Films President, Steve Sabol. The home exterior is complete with three sprawling acres of land, thoughtfully designed landscaping, a rich stone facade, brand new double pane insulated windows, and an oversized circular driveway with space for 10+ cars. Over the last 18 months, TEH Properties built two additions and a massive kitchen/family room that must be seen to appreciate how this home meets today+GGs current lifestyle. Enter into a grand foyer that features paneled walls and refinished wood floors that have been stained to display a custom pattern, stunning glass doors lead to the terrace,. The light-filled main level has recessed lighting, sleek interior doors, and large windows showcasing scenic vistas. The living room enjoys a gas fireplace with a custom mantel and marble surround. An 18 light bay window frames the views across the hillside. Continue to the home office featuring ebony chevron wood floors offering three exposures as well as doors to the terrace. The original private library has been restored with striking cadet blue paneling accented with satin brass hardware and a gas fireplace. Across the foyer, the formal dining room offers modern light fixtures, paneled wainscoting and expansive views. The heart of the home can be found within the family room where Steve Sabol+GGs father would showcase films to friends and family. This space offers high ceilings with exposed beams, five massive windows and a wood/gas burning fireplace with a full marble surround. Overlooking the backyard, there is an exquisite chef+GGs kitchen with more oversized windows and a generous casual dining area. The kitchen has quartzite marble countertops, custom cabinetry with satin brass hardware, premium Viking appliances, including a 48+G- gas range with double ovens, two dishwashers, two wine coolers, and a built-in microwave. A large walk-in pantry with an additional refrigerator/freezer provides convenience and exceptional storage. Unique to this residence, the picturesque backyard is accessible from the kitchen, foyer and office. It offers incredible sweeping views, a large bluestone terrace and ample space for a pool to be developed. The initials of Steve and his sister, Blair, are still carved into one of the many tall trees. One of three laundry rooms, powder room and spacious mud room with four built-in cubbies, coat closet and a three-car garage conclude the first level. Take the main staircase, adorned with a refurbished iron railing, to the second floor. This level leads to five generously sized bedrooms and four designer-appointed bathrooms with all new lighting and hardware. Mention must be made of the lavish primary suite. It has vaulted ceilings, a wet-bar with quartzite marble countertop, hardwood floors, custom closet space and a bath appointed in Calacutta gold marble with heated flooring, soaking tub, a large linen closet and a separate water closet. There is a generous guest suite with marble bath, three closets and a private laundry station. The finished walk-out basement features a large fit-out custom seasonal closet an oversized laundry room with built-ins, and a closet for cleaning supplies. The living space is perfectly suited for a playroom, fitness, or home theatre. A perfect blend of old and new, no detail of this home has been left undone. Located on a premium street, in this beautiful and quiet neighborhood of Bryn Mawr, 1038 Rock Creek Road is steps away from the running/walking trails of Saunders Woods Preserve. This area provides access to many parks, restaurants and excellent schools.
