Tradition reigns supreme in the communities along Philadelphia’s Main Line. So not surprisingly, when lifelong area residents downsize, they want to preserve the rich architectural legacies they’ve lived with their entire lives. Yet, they also want to experience a more relaxed way of life in their new homes with features such as open floor plans, light and airy living spaces low maintenance design and resort-style amenities at their doorsteps.
Liseter is designed with these residents in mind. This planned community from Toll Brothers is sited on the rolling farm that was once the du Pont estate in Newtown Square, Pennsylvania. In keeping with the provenance of the grand estate, Liseter is a community of finely constructed residences with exceptionally luxurious amenities to match. For instance, The Merion Collection features low-maintenance single-family homes with exteriors that embrace the region’s classic vernacular architecture—but character-rich interiors that play to a contemporary, family-centric lifestyle with open floor plans. These attributes make the homes perfect for active adults choosing to downsize—as well as growing families.
Showcasing both lifestyles was MCA’s goal in the model home interiors for The Merion Collection, which boasts residences that include patrician yet interconnected living spaces, a formal dining room, a soaring ceiling in the great room, first-floor master suites and special spaces that afford residents the flexibility to cater to generational needs, such as a second-floor overlook and lofted bedrooms. Age-defying decorative strategies to showcase possibilities in the model home interiors include classic, graceful furnishings that sport modern details and a light, bright palette that’s radiant yet serene.
