Description

This stately Georgian Revival house, with true Wissahickon Schist stone throughout, along with its lovely grounds, is the anchor of its coveted Morris Arboretum neighborhood, and offers the utmost privacy.This property extends the beauty of the neighboring Morris Arboretum with mature trees and a garden that has been lovingly maintained by its owner. The house is equally serene. Enter up curved slate pathways surrounding a front fountain to the two-story portico with columns and a Juliet balcony. The gracious front hall has beautiful, wide planked wood floors that continue in the living and dining rooms. The spacious living room to the right has a stone fireplace and regular and floor-to-ceiling windows allowing for maximum light. Next to it, is a lovely study/den that was added in the 1980s also with floor to ceiling windows and a sliding glass door that opens to the magical backyard. To the left of the front door is an equally gracious dining room, with windows on three sides. Next to the dining room is the morning sun-drenched kitchen with a door leading to the back stone patio expansion built in 2000. From the Patio, take in the splendid in-ground pool with gorgeous perennial flowers that is the mainstay of the pristine and lovely yard that also hosts a grilling area above right of the pool in its own terraced space.Back in the house and upstairs on the 2nd floor you will find three spacious bedrooms and two bathrooms. Two of the bedrooms share a Jack and Jill bathroom and at the top of the stairs is a wonderful landing that looks out over the neighborhood. Three more bedrooms and two baths await you on the 3rd floor. This well-loved and maintained home has a large two car garage with access to the cellar, oil heat, a buderus heater, radiators and storm water drains, This home, offering 5 plus bedrooms and 4.2 baths, is a true Chestnut Hill Gem. It is wonderfully elegant inside and out. It is also minutes away from all that Germantown Avenue offers with its great shopping and dining, Septa trains, schools and the trails of the Wissahickon Valley, not to mention the Morris Arboretum. This house is not to be missed!
