    Description

    Make your new home the best blend of traditional and contemporary. From the tree-lined street, a brick walkway leads through mature plantings to the handsome front entrance of this classic Wissahickon schist stone colonial in East Mt Airy. The welcoming center hall features bamboo flooring which extends throughout the first floor. The gracious living room features a sophisticated brick fireplace and substantial wood mantle and surround. Built-in shelving on either side of the cushioned reading nook with recessed lighting provides a cozy retreat. Two glass doors lead from the living room to the newly insulated and carpeted sunroom. With its custom room-darkening shades, the sunroom is a flexible space that can function as a year-round family room, office, or 6th bedroom. Practical and well-equipped, the chef's kitchen provides everything needed for efficient gourmet cooking with the most modern conveniences: a 5-burner gas cooktop, convection and warming ovens, silent dishwasher, stainless steel appliances, and excellent counter space. The light-filled space features shaker-style cabinetry, marble countertops and backsplash, and an eat-in island. The kitchen opens to the adjacent dining area. Its two bay windows flood the dining room and adjacent kitchen with natural light which can be controlled with custom shades. A butler's pantry with skylight and built-in window seat exits onto the brick patio beyond, facilitating al fresco dining. The first floor is completed by a stylish full bathroom, allowing for first-level living, if desired.+-+-A glance up the elegant stairway reveals a dramatic skylight two floors above. The second floor of the home boasts refinished original hardwood floors and includes the spacious owner's suite with custom window treatments and a walk-in closet with custom fittings. The owner's bath features a large glass-enclosed marble-tiled shower stall with bench and marble tile floors. Two additional bedrooms with large closets share a stylish hall bath with a subway-tiled shower/bathtub and large closet. Hardwood floors and other classic details continue to the versatile third floor where two additional bedrooms feature more built-in shelving and charming eyebrow windows. A full-size laundry closet and elegant full bath with original clawfoot bathtub complete the third floor. The basement includes an additional set of laundry hookups and plenty of storage. The private fenced yard features a large brick patio with several entertaining areas, planting beds and mature landscaping. A former 2-car garage with electricity, plumbing and gas is a detached space that could make a fantastic office, studio or luxurious tiny house. Split heating/air conditioning units throughout provide an efficient way to heat and cool the home. Located two blocks from the SEPTA Chestnut Hill East station and just minutes from major highways and the shopping and restaurants of Chestnut Hill and Weavers Way Co-op. This sophisticated residence offers flexible, modern living without sacrificing the charm and character of a classic Mt Airy home. Make your appointment today!
