Welcome to 326 W. Willow Grove Avenue - a distinctive and architecturally unique single family home situated in the heart of Chestnut Hill. Built in 1890 and designed by acclaimed architects, G.W. and W. D. Hewitt, this Dutch Colonial schist stone home was part of Henry Houston’s historic ‘Wissahickon Heights’ planned community in the St. Martin’s section of Chestnut Hill. The house retains many original architectural features including 10 foot high ceilings, large multi-paned windows with deep sills, wainscoting and pristine hardwood flooring throughout. Also original to the home, are four wood-burning fireplaces, all functioning and fitted with vent-fan systems. A welcoming wraparound porch greets you as you approach the home. Enter the house through the spacious entry hall with a convenient powder room and coat closet. The airy, light-filled living room to the right has direct views of stunning St. Martin in the Fields Church. Adjacent to the living room is a large dining room with an ornate wall niche and a fireplace with carved wood mantel and original Victorian tile. Connected to the dining room is a spacious eat-in kitchen, updated with newer cabinetry and granite countertops, and featuring stainless appliances and a built-in breakfront. From here you can access the large Trex deck with pergola which overlooks the professionally landscaped and fully fenced garden; a perfect space for entertaining and relaxing. An original Palladian window on the main staircase allows light to flood into the home from above. The second floor has a large landing, a hall bath, and four bright bedrooms, including the primary bedroom with ensuite bath and original built-ins. All have ample closet space. The third floor contains four bedrooms and two full baths .The shower in one bathroom has been modified to accommodate a convenient washer/dryer. These third floor rooms would be perfect for a home gym and/or office. In the walk-out basement there’s a spa-like retreat with cedar sauna and a full bath. The peaceful garden is beautifully planted with an abundance of specimen plants, including Japanese Maples, Midwinter Dogwoods and Tree Peonies. A tranquil fern garden sits at the rear of the property along with a soothing pond. An attached two-car garage and a driveway that has plenty of turnaround space are located on the side of the home. Mechanicals include two new furnaces, two large water heaters, and multi-zone AC. Walk to dining, shopping and all that Chestnut Hill has on offer. Steps from the regional rail, Philadelphia Cricket/Golf Club, Springside School, Pastorius Park and the Wissahickon/Fairmount Park.
