    Description

    This classic 3-story Center Hall Stone Colonial sits on beautiful, tree-lined Wissahickon Avenue in West Mount Airy / Blue Bell Hill in one of the neighborhood~s most prominent locations. A tribute to the elegance of days gone by and coupled with modern upgrades like zoned AC, this 5 bedroom, 4.5 bath single family home, built with locally quarried stone, boasts well over 4000 square feet of living space on 3 floors. Through the stately front door, the gracious center hall entry welcomes you into the heart of the home where you will be immediately impressed by the original, refinished hardwood floors. The main level of this light-filled home includes a large living room with architecturally built-in bookshelves, featuring leaded glass doors with delightfully appropriate printer~s mark detailing, and a wood-burning stone fireplace as the focal point. Through the two sets of glass doors you will find a lovely sunroom with 3 walls of windows and yet another stone fireplace and terra cotta tile that is perfect for relaxing any time of day. The dining room, showcasing a built-in china cabinet, is large enough to host even the most well attended of dinner parties. Just beyond you~ll find yet another sunroom with tiled floor (custom area rug removable) currently being utilized as a home office. The updated eat-in kitchen with radiant heat flooring, Corian countertops, and 2 custom made sinks has a GE appliance suite which includes a convection gas range, trash compactor, and garbage disposal inviting cozy conversations while the home chef whips up their latest creation. The back hallway, from the kitchen to the foyer, is where you~ll find the laundry center, the back stairs, a large coat closet, and a coveted first floor powder room. Up the stairs and past the grand Palladian window, the second floor leads to a generously sized main suite with a wall of closets, an en suite bath which includes a whirlpool tub and stall shower, and your own private roof deck. Two additional connected bedrooms with custom closets and a full bath with crisp white tile work and linen closet round out the second level. The third floor boasts a large, sunny bedroom with walk-in cedar closet and full bath, that could be an owner~s or au pair suite, in addition to another bedroom and another full bath with an elegant clawfoot tub. The full-height basement showcases the care the owners have shown in maintaining every aspect of this house including its systems. The new owners will enjoy the convenience of a two car garage with automatic door and ample street parking for visiting guests. A well-manicured, fenced-in yard and a deck provide even more options for hosting get-togethers. Ideally located to get to the area~s major thoroughfares and minutes (walking or driving) from multiple train stations, you~ll have easy access to all of the shops and dining that Mt. Airy, Chestnut Hill, East Falls, and Manayunk have to offer. Celebrate this location by taking a walk on the local trails or sledding at one of the best spots in Philadelphia.
