Welcome to 2005 Claremont Lane

As originally planned, the sunroom was an open-air, Pennsylvania bluestone terrace. Staub glassed it in soon after the home's completion, retaining the exquisite iron accents.Three enormous skylights augment the room's natural light, and glass doors slide back for access to the crushed-gravel patio and gardens.
The living room travels into the dining room and features an imported European marble fireplace. The library offers rich paneling, a fireplace, touch-latch cabinets containing a television, sound system, and speaker panels, a full-length bay window with garden views, and book/display cases.
Updated with Wolf and SubZero appliances, the airy, streamlined kitchen retains its timeless, stainless steel countertops and custom cabinetry.
The secluded primary suite includes a spacious serene bedroom that overlooks the gardens through a bank of windows. The owners created a pair of modern, lavishly appointed full baths.
A pair of large, en-suite bedrooms are located on the second floor. Each has a hardwood floor and charming bath.
The magnificent gardens surround the crushed-gravel patios and paths. The gardens have remained justly celebrated for their rare specimens of camellia, azalea, mock-fruit trees, and subtropical trees.
