210 Dogwood Road

Under agreement with multiple offers!

210 Dogwood Lane

At the end of a cul-de-sac in scenic Upper Providence, this stunning mid-century modern home reaches out of the hillside and into the treetops. Lovingly designed and built in 1960, this very special property has retained a timeless charm.  Enter the living room for a taste of the original solid wood panels and custom millwork that span the house. The oak floors glisten and a cozy fireplace is set in a wall of exposed brick, but your eye will be lifted by the ethereal view of the forest through a wall of glass doors that is echoed in the clerestory windows, which encircle the ceiling. The open floor plan allows an intimate dining area overlooking the same view. A thoughtfully updated chef’s kitchen features the original mid-century modern wooden cabinets restored on the outside and revitalized with new interior organizers. Creamy granite counter tops and a double under-mounted stainless steel sink add form and function. High performing appliances include a Wolf range, LG side-by-side refrigerator and Bosch dishwasher. A door from the kitchen leads to a forty-foot long deck, with a built-in brick barbeque. This deck spans the house with glass doors from the kitchen, living room and master suite all overlooking the trees. The main floor master suite includes a full bath, walk-in closet, second closet, a sitting or office area, and a peaceful view over the woods. A staircase from the living room leads to the lower level. The second bedroom has an enormous closet and doors to a hillside terrace. A third bedroom and large cedar closet can also be found downstairs. The sumptuously renovated hall bath features a Terrazzo tile floor, a sleek floating vanity with farmhouse sink, and porcelain tile surround and wainscoting with limestone accent. An enormous bonus room has a door to the exterior and would make a wonderful art studio or office. The serene setting gives this home an air of the mountains, but downtown Media Borough and its Trader Joe’s, restaurants, galleries, and R3 train station are just over a mile from the front door!
