Are you running out of places to store your belongings? Is your attic ceiling threatening to collapse under the weight of everything you have hidden there?

Are your children clamoring for places to play? Are you looking for a good place to train?

Have you ever dreamed of inviting all your friends, family and neighbors – along with their friends, family and neighbors – to the party to end all the holidays?

And are there times when all you want is a night out at home with your loved one?

So you want to buy this colonial Malvern mansion for sale. There is room for all of these things and more.

But before you show you all the space it has for anything you could possibly want, think about its front facade for a moment.

As you are no doubt aware, the border between Pennsylvania and Maryland is also the Mason-Dixon Line, the historic dividing line between north and south. This large mansion, built in 1995, seems to have been imported from a plantation in the South. But instead of a long access road lined with holm oaks, this house has a paved driveway further north and a circular forecourt. (It also has odd half-fan windows that frame the ordinary windows in its three pediments.)

But with a veranda and balcony spanning the full width of the main structure, the rear elevation feels even more southerly.

And the home seems to be able to serve as a replacement for Tara in “Gone with the Wind”. And as you will soon see, this space is not the only attribute of this house that is on the top, but in a sober way.

Big room

Then: the large two-story room directly behind the foyer. Again, this piece puts 18th century style on steroids. But that ends before the rococo decoration that can be found in these similar houses in Gladwyne.

Salon

Most of the ground floor is furnished in the traditional colonial style of the central hall. In the left rear corner of the first floor is a 1920s style living room, surrounded by French doors and trimmed with mahogany on its door frames and tray ceiling. (You’ll see a lot more mahogany as you move around this house, not to mention more custom woodwork like the one around the fireplace in this room.)

And at the end of the dining room, you will find the kitchen and the dining area. With a full line of Viking appliances including a six burner range with grill and double oven, separate full size fridge and freezer, integrated espresso machine and beverage fridge, pantry with warming drawers and another dishwasher, and a huge pantry, this kitchen can handle both your own kitchen and that of your caterer. And you can put on quite a show for your guests by having them sit at the kitchen bar, which seats eight.

There is also another den on this floor next to the kitchen.

And you will find that this colonial Malvern mansion for sale has a great view of Valley Forge Mountain. It also has a lot of privacy thanks to its 2.4 acre lot. And with 14 full bathrooms and three powder rooms, your guests shouldn’t find themselves lining up to use the restroom at this party to end all the parties.

If there’s anything this huge mansion doesn’t have, let me know. Come to think of it, it looks like there’s no ax throwing lane like another big house featured here recently. But you could certainly find room here to add one.

If, as the saying goes, the road of excess leads to the palace of wisdom, then you will have arrived at the source of knowledge if you park (and your six cars) here.
