Enter this gorgeous home through a spacious enclosed sun porch that you can enjoy year-round with the help of an unvented gas stove for the colder months and a separate AC unit during the warmer months. The original double Dutch door welcomes you into the main entry foyer adorned with beautiful 68-inch-high wainscoting and hardwood floors. To the right is your spacious living room with a brick and wood working fireplace, built-in bookcases, high baseboards, and decorative trim work with crown molding accenting the 9-foot ceiling. Double French doors bring you into the expansive dining room, large enough to serve a sizeable group for dinner parties. The dining room features two built-in china cabinets and a two-way swinging door to the Butler's pantry, all with original ornamental multi pane leaded windows. The adjacent 1st floor powder room incorporates the original subway tile and a 12-over-1 light double hung window as well as a restored leaded glass door and a matching ornamental transom. The sweeping kitchen is worthy of a story. Renovated in 2013, the original white subway tile was a surprising find under layers of previous "updates" and brings a special distressed character to the room. Combine that with the exceptional beauty of the original shortleaf red pine floors and the slate floor base from the home's first stove. This eat-in kitchen features a gorgeous tin ceiling, large double farmhouse style sink, plenty of counter space and cabinets, stainless gas stove, restored powder coated radiator with original detail, and a large pantry built into the original back staircase (which can double as a fantastic hiding place). The back door opens to another enclosed sun porch that can double as a mudroom entry and a cozy place for morning tea. The second floor presents a sweeping primary bedroom with a bump out extension for additional light and air and an en-suite bathroom with stall shower. This bath is connected to yet another large room currently being used as a home office and wardrobe. Two additional large bedrooms are located on this level along with a subway-tiled hall bath with a deep soaking tub. Eleven doors on this floor have been masterfully restored to their original wood finish. The third floor delivers three more bedrooms and a hall bath with claw foot tub and shower. This beautifully landscaped home delivers plenty of yard, flowerbeds, an herb garden, and a rear patio. With beautiful wood floors throughout, 2-zone central air, replacement windows in many of the rooms along with striking 9-over-1 light and 12-over-1 light double hung windows elsewhere, a new roof, new exterior paint, newer high efficiency gas boiler, and fully rewired electric throughout this is the magnificent Mount Airy home you have been searching for! A detached 2 car garage and driveway offer ample off-street parking. Conveniently located 1 1/2 blocks to the Chestnut Hill East - Center City regional rail, as well as to several nearby bus routes, and accessible to downtown Mt. Airy and Chestnut Hill shopping, cafes, and restaurants. Come see this gorgeous home early. Showings begin Thursday, November 12th.
