Exceptional! Gourmet kitchen, unparalleled master bedroom suite, 2 wood-burning fireplaces, Central Air, bright natural light. You've been waiting for this beautiful detached 3 story masonry residence in this prime West Mount Airy location for a long time. Edgar Seeler, who is responsible for the design of several University of Pennsylvania buildings, designed this elegant center hall colonial style home in 1905, and he would be proud of its superb condition: gorgeous hardwood floors, renovated kitchen and bathrooms, high ceilings and almost all new windows that let in the light he must have imagined. FIRST FLOOR: A glass enclosed entryway protects the handsome original solid front door that leads to a broad center hall with coat closet, renovated powder room and distinctive staircase. The sunlit living room stretches across the house from front to back, accented at one end by a wood-burning fireplace with glass doors and herringbone brick hearth surrounded by a carved painted mantel. The living room offers built-in shelving, crown molding and two sets of french doors that lead to a fully enclosed porch with its own exit to the drive and surrounded by south-facing windows. This porch is another room of the house with parquet floors, heated and cooled by its own split system. On the other side of the center hall, entered via pocket doors, is a formal dining room, ready to seat 10-12, with wood-burning fireplace with glass doors. A built-in sideboard with storage cabinetry and polished granite countertop has been added for convenience in entertaining. The room sparkles with light from a triple window with deep sills. The original, never-painted cabinetry of the butler pantry harkens back to 1905--fantastic space for kitchen storage, recently used as a centrally located office. The gourmet kitchen, gutted, redesigned and renewed in 2003, is just as wonderful today as then: real maple floors, recessed lighting, gleaming polished granite counters including on the center island, Kitchen-Aid side-by-side refrigerator/freezer, 2-drawer Fisher-Paykel dishwasher, garbage disposal, 5-burner gas stove with gas convection oven, electric wall oven with microwave above, abundant cabinet storage. The kitchen opens to a delightful breakfast room with its own cabinetry and flat-screen TV; exits to a broad, open multi-level cedar deck at the rear of the house that boasts a hot tub! SECOND FLOOR: Sumptuous master bedroom suite that includes 2 extra rooms, huge walk-in California closet and glistening master bath with glass shower and ceramic tile. Two more large bedrooms (they connect, too!) with excellent closets. Hall bath with shower over tub renovated in 2010 to include laundry closet. THIRD FLOOR: One small and one very large room for bedrooms or other uses, large hall closet, hall bath with shower over tub, large unfinished room for attic storage. BASEMENT: full, unfinished, ultra clean for utilities, original laundry area, room used for wine storage, workbench, unused original bath. FEATURES: Gas hot air furnace, 1993, and regularly serviced; Central air installed 2002; 200 AMP CB electric panel; Gas domestic hot water heater, 2017. Brand new ROOF 11/2018 w/ten year transferrable warranty. Interior painted between 2018 and 2020. Exterior painted 2017. Water line replaced to street, 2000. Detached one-car garage with remote access; driveway to accommodate several cars re-paved, 2015. This move-in-ready home sits on a landscaped 1/3 acre in West Mount Airy between Wayne and Wissahickon Avenues and within walking distance to the Wissahickon Creek area of Fairmount Park and to bus and commuter train. Prime location. See inside with the 3-D Matterport floor plan and virtual tour.
