Property Description

Welcome to this restored and re-envisioned home built in 1846, that is oozing with old world charm coupled with modern accents. Enveloped by greenery, and beautiful grounds, it was designed to accommodate both gracious entertaining and the day to day bustle of family life. Enter the center hall by way of a front portico, supported by two handsome wood columns. Step into the light-filled formal living room with soaring ceilings, then through to the dining room graced by a beautiful wood mantle over a wood burning fireplace. The family room boasts original plaster crown moldings and decorative plaster framing the ceiling. All main living spaces and bedrooms have original random-width pine floors, most recently refinished and tall windows with elaborate wood casements and high baseboards. The rooms on the first floor have multiple access points to adjoining rooms that create an airy feeling and wonderful flow. From the family or dining room you enter into the updated kitchen with wood cabinets, granite countertops and new wood style ceramic tile floors. The sunny and spacious breakfast area is outlined with windows and has great views of the back picturesque patio enhanced with shrubs and mature trees. A mud room with enclosed laundry area and a full bathroom with a shower completes the first floor. Follow the mahogany railing with curly maple balusters that continues to the third story. On the second floor you will find three spacious bedrooms with original random width pine floors, ample closets and windows. The main bedroom is bright and looks out onto the backyard. A modern bathroom is neutral with ceramic tile wainscoting and a soaking tub. The third floor has two additional bedrooms with cedar closets and a walk-in closet plus a full bath, leaving lots of work from home options. Approximately 3/4 acre lot, two oversized garages with parking for up to 5 cars and overhead storage and large blacktop turntable with driveway parking for 6+ cars/trucks. A short walk to the Fairmount Park Reservoir with a 3/4 mile walking path. Concrete fish pond with filtering system. Time to escape center city living and give yourself the space and property you deserve. This home has been lovingly cared for by it's current owners for over thirty years and is ready for new owners to create new memories.
