Details: “Cottage” is certainly a misnomer when it comes to the stately stone Karmar Cottage in Villanova. Set on the grounds of a 3-acre property, this 55-year-old five-bedroom, five-bath beauty underwent a complete renovation in 2002. Highlights include a gorgeous 19th-century pewter fireplace mantel and original pegged hardwood floors in the living room; a lavish in-law suite with a full kitchen, breakfast nook, spacious living area and bedroom; a heated three-car garage; and estate fencing with an electric entry gate. The first-floor master bedroom suite has hardwood floors, a fireplace with French mantel, and his-and-hers baths and closets.
Extras: A natural-form heated pool with spa and a covered patio with gas grill. The pool house has an outside hot and cold shower, a changing room, powder room, and storage.
