    Description

    This beautiful Mt. Airy corner property is an extraordinary opportunity to own a home built at the peak of hand craftsmanship in American home building. This circa 1925 property features a stately exterior faced with locally quarried Wissahickon schist. The facade is topped with slate roofing and the openings are highlighted with traditional wooden windows and doors that operate with modern functionality. A wrought iron railing parallels the slate pavers along the recessed entrance creating a front porch. Enter through the front door beneath a fanlight transom into a sunlit foyer that opens up to a beautiful staircase flanked by expansive living and dining rooms featuring oak parquet floors framed by walnut and maple inlaid borders. The sunken living room has a 10' h coffered ceiling and features beautiful bay windows and a working stone fireplace. The dining room, lit by a period crystal chandelier, can accommodate dinner for 10 while having direct access to the kitchen, pantry, breakfast room, and a pair of deep closets. The sunlit kitchen is fully functional but ready for some updating centered around the Viking stove with commercial-scale exhaust, and a stainless steel side by side refrigerator. The kitchen has direct access to the side yard which would be perfect for an herb garden. Up the graceful original staircase to the 2nd floor you will find, to one side, a large owners bedroom with a pair of closets, and original Art Deco period finishes in the ensuite bathroom. The additional bedrooms have beautiful pine floors, original architecturally considered windows, and generous closets. Off the hall is a 2nd bathroom with original tiled walls and a soaking tub. The full basement offers great storage or a chance to update into a beautiful, finished basement. A powder room is already in place, as is an energy efficient heating system alongside laundry and storage areas. From the basement, you will find access to the 1.5 car garage, with a 2nd parking space behind it. Out the front door, you will find the location gives easy access to some of the best areas of Fairmount Park, is equal distance to Awbury and Morris Arboretums, and close to many neighborhood amenities such as restaurants, cafes, yoga studios, and shopping, including the Weavers Way food co-op.
