Description

Welcome home to 8512 Stenton Avenue. This is a rare opportunity to own a significant single home on a large lot in the desirable +G+top of the hill+G- neighborhood of beautiful Chestnut Hill, Philadelphia +GG don't miss your chance! This classic colonial farmhouse is an architectural beauty that boasts high ceilings with crown molding and floor-to-ceiling windows with deep sills, creating an open, airy feel throughout. The oversized foyer is bathed in natural light by a wall featuring three large windows and a dramatic staircase to the second floor with another large window on the interim landing. The original solid wood flooring is in excellent shape and lends warmth to the entire house. From the foyer to the right, French doors lead to a comfortable, beautifully proportioned living room with a large working fireplace and dramatic mantelpiece. French doors on either end of the mantelpiece lead to a screened porch area that awaits your loving touch. A sizable, nearly square dining room with beautiful proportions and large windows provides excellent sunset views. The dining room leads to the main hallway that opens onto an enormous, deep kitchen with an eating area, powder room, wood-burning stove, main cooking area, and laundry at the far end. The yard is large, lush, and very private; it needs attention but has served as a wonderful entertainment area for parties, sports, and activities. Back inside, the front foyer staircase takes you to a second floor containing four bedrooms, a full hall bathroom, and an +G+extra space+G- leading to the main bedroom and full main bath. The +G+extra+G- room could be used as a dressing room, nursery, office, reading area, meditation space, or extra bedroom +GG whatever you need it to be! It has two closets and a large casement window facing east. A short hallway with lovely built-in storage on the left and a window with deep seating leads from the +G+extra+G- room past the full main bath on the right to the main bedroom. The main bedroom is flooded with natural light from exposures on three sides, including casement French windows that look out over the backyard. The full hall bath needs updating but has an original intact cast iron sink, tub shower, ceiling vent, and large western exposure. The remaining two second-floor bedrooms are both large. The first bedroom has western and northern windows; the second bedroom has northern and eastern windows and a large closet. From the second floor, another beautiful staircase takes you up past an eastern window to the third floor, with two very large rooms each running the width of the house and containing a set of three extra-large arched windows. The front room has an additional eastern exposure and two built-in bookcases. The rear room is a stunning architectural gem with eastern, southern, and western exposures that fill it with morning and afternoon light and beautiful sunset views. A full hall bath on this floor features the original claw foot bathtub. A hall cedar closet and storage area complete this floor, which could be opened up to create a light-filled art studio, office, in-law suite, library, or other special space. This unique home is close to the regional rail, entertainment, shopping, and restaurants of Chestnut Hill as well as Forbidden Drive, The Morris Arboretum, and Chestnut Hill College, with easy access to the PA Turnpike via Rte. 309 and the nearby parks of Montgomery County. Come see for yourself! The home is being sold as is; the seller will not entertain any accommodations.
