About 556 Hoffman Dr

Step into 556 Hoffman Drive, a modern oasis nestled at the end of a peaceful cul-de-sac in Bryn Mawr. This stunning 5/6-bedroom, 3.5-bathroom home has been nurtured and cherished for decades. Originally crafted in 1988 by the inspired hands of the owners, this residence has been more than just a house; it has been a canvas for a family's dreams and memories. In 1996, a meticulously fashioned wine cellar was added, a testament to the appreciation of life's finer pleasures. Three expansive decks were also constructed, extending invitations to gather under the sky's embrace of the beautiful 1.13-acre property. In 2005, the entrance evolved from wooden decking to concrete and flagstone, a prelude to the modern elegance awaiting within. Tall vertical glass windows situated above the front door flood the foyer with natural light. The heart of the home underwent a metamorphosis in 2012, as the kitchen was completely renovated, a culinary haven for the Chef-owner blending function with style. 2014 ushered in a sanctuary of serenity, with the master bedroom windows framing vistas of tranquility. In 2016, a sumptuous, skylit master bathroom was added, beaming in the sunlight or moonlight, depending on the time of day. Three and a half bathrooms were reinvented in 2016. 2017 saw a major improvement, as carpets made way for hardwood on the first floor and timeless parquet floors that are now surging in popularity on the main floor. Simultaneously, a state-of-the-art AC unit added comfort on warm summer days. In 2018, the home breathed easier with the installation of an industrial humidifier, while 2019 fortified its foundations with a new sewage pump, silent guardians ensuring seamless living. A fresh coat of paint in 2023 brought new life to the exterior of the house, twenty-five years, and many memories after its original construction. Most recently, as of February 2024, a brand-new water heater was added, ready to fuel countless moments of warmth in the elegant soaking tub. Bimonthly inspections by Ecoshield Pest Solutions provide peace of mind. While the beautiful lawn, trees, and shrubbery have been nurtured by dedicated caretakers for years, ensuring that every leaf and blade of grass welcomes those who pass through the peaceful cul-de-sac. Perfectly situated in the heart of Northside Bryn Mawr this house boasts top Lower Merion Schools and a bounty of top-rated private schools and universities.
