Karen Jefferys - Coldwell Banker Hearthside
117 E Mill Rd


Beautifully renovated country house just 5 minutes to Chestnut Hill. Designed in 1937, by W. Pope Barney, "Oak Run" is a quietly elegant property that speaks to a 21st century buyer. The house offers an open space plan, simple efficiency, and a sense that one is living at one with the planet. In 2012, the current home owner completed a spectacular restoration; including a geothermal HVAC system with three zones, new electric, renovated bathrooms, modernized kitchen, restored millwork and windows, and custom-built garage doors. Sited well off the road, the 3.5 acre property is a refuge of beauty and peace. Close to the house bloom perennial gardens with flowers and greenery spilling over garden walls. Beautiful level, grassy areas lie beyond the gardens and specimen trees (including a magnificent copper beech) dot the bucolic landscape. The house is clearly married to the land. As you walk into the entry hall you can see the gardens off the rear of the house. From every restored window there are vistas of the landscape . The open plan, with a living and dining great room was so bold for 1937. Today, it is the way everyone wants to live! As you approach the front door, protected by a covered porch, the expansive three-car garage is to your right, and the kitchen/mudroom door is to your left. You enter the house into a welcoming foyer with closets and storage. Double doors, which would likely remain open most of the time separate the foyer from the great room, with a beautiful stone fireplace, built in bookcases, and windows everywhere. To the left of the foyer is the kitchen and butler's pantry, sensitively updated in keeping with the house. There is a den on the first floor that could be used as a bedroom, but has now been incorporated into the main living area. The first floor is completed with a full bath and office/library. The second floor houses three bedrooms, two baths, an upstairs laundry room, and a stunning artist's studio that begs the imagination. The current owner captured space to make a walk-in closet in the master. There is plenty of storage upstairs and down; and the three car garage offers space for cars and equipment that supports the "country" lifestyle. A more idyllic setting and prettier house would be hard to find.
