Description

Introducing House #30 of the original Overbrook Farms Plan. Listed as a significant house on both the National and the Phila Historic Registers. This unique home was designed by famous architect William L Price, for gracious suburban living when Overbrook Station was the first stop on the Main Line. The home boasts 10 bedrooms and 4.5 baths and is filled with light from large mostly original windows throughout. The house sits on approx. 1/3 of an acre (as recently subdivided from carriage house) and has its own driveway with a parking area for up to five cars. The house sits slightly elevated giving it a grand appearance as you walk from the street up the cement sidewalk that bisects the spacious front yard with original Mountain Laurels and Azaleas as well as other plantings and mulched beds awaiting your additions to the landscape. There is a large wrap-around covered front porch, with newly refinished hardwood decking. An entry foyer with a large original interior door leads to the hallway with a beautiful 3-story center stairwell and a fireplace* with an original mantel. There is a small powder room tucked under the stairs. Above the central stairwell is a new chandelier and a huge original stained-glass window (which is still operational). The house has 9ft+ ceilings on the first floor and hosts a large formal living room with fireplace and original mantel and an attached sunroom. The parlor/library has beautiful built-in dark wood adjustable bookshelves and a decorative mantel. The formal dining room has a built-in china closet and a door that opens to the wrap-around porch. The huge kitchen has 3 separate cooking areas each with its own stove, sink, cabinets, and butcher block counter spaces, to accommodate multiple cooks or special dietary needs. 1 large French door refrigerator with a bottom freezer is in the main kitchen. Behind the kitchen is a back breakfast bar with a full multipaned wall of windows and a door to the back porch and yard. At the top of the steps on the second floor is the primary suite which includes a large bedroom with a brand-new primary bathroom and attached sun porch. The second smaller bedroom, currently staged as a sitting room area, attaches to a third large bedroom with a brand-new mirrored closet. In the hallway next to this bedroom is an original tiled hall bath with a clawfoot tub/shower, a pedestal sink, and an original built-in medicine cabinet. A fourth large bedroom opens to the fifth bedroom by way of a pocket door (currently not operational). Next to the fifth bedroom is a large, tiled bathroom with stained glass windows and a clawfoot tub. The hall has a clothes/linen closet and a small utility closet. There is a back stairwell that used to connect to the kitchen, and all the stairs are still there. The third floor has five more bedrooms of varied sizes and shapes and a large linen/storage closet with original built-in drawers, and a fourth bathroom dating from the seventies with a stand-up fabricated shower stall. Above the third floor is a full attic accessible through a hatch in the hallway ceiling. In the attic are 2 of the HVAC systems. The basement, with above-ground windows and an outside exit, houses one of the HVAC units and a boiler, has a large original workbench and a laundry room with a washer, dryer, triple soapstone laundry sink, and 75-gallon hot water heater. The whole interior of the house has been repainted and the original oak hardwood floors with maple inlays were refinished throughout. The house features new electricity throughout with a 200amp main panel and sub panel in the basement and a sub panel on the 2nd and third floors. All 3 HVAC systems were installed and are serviced by SILA, (2 conventional and one high-velocity system.) 100% of the original knob and tube wiring has been replaced with updated wiring. ***For accepted offer by Fri Dec 9th seller will provide at settlement 1 year home warranty and 1 yr maintenance contract with SILA HVAC systems.
