A perfect Chestnut Hill home with a most desirable location. This c. 1889 home was originally one of three homes built along with the historic St Martins-in-the-Fields. This third home from the church retains all its historic character and detail, and is recently renovated with gorgeous 21st century finishes and amenities. Yet some things never change, like the high ceilings and significant original detail, the brilliant sunshine permeating throughout, the ideally sized and situated 1/2 acre lot, and the superb location--10 minute walk to the Avenue via Gravers or Willow Grove, 10 minute walk to the Wissahickon trails through the fields along a direct path, and less than 5 minute walk to the train to Center City. The home itself and its land are amazing. The lot is a 1/2 acre of easily maintained flat lawn, trees, and landscaping; with two patios, a front porch, 2-car GARAGE (and plenty of additional driveway parking), and a ton of space to play. The exterior Queen Ann Victorian architecture is magnificent. The home includes 6 bedrooms, 5.5 baths (4 en suite), a family room and spacious office with lovely views. Gorgeous entry hall, mud room, and superb storage throughout, including the big, dry basement. 10' ceilings, Hardwood floors throughout including gorgeous random width pine floors on the 2nd and 3rd floors, and a newer oak floor on the 1st floor with walnut and maple inlay. Three fireplaces, one wood burning, one gas, and one decorative. Original moldings and other beautiful details throughout the entire home including a two-story arched window with 11 panes that is perfectly integrated with the grand, original staircase. Bay windows with window seats. This important home offers all the indoor and outdoor space you need, especially when spending more time at home. Many spaces and privacy, but also an ideal flow and wonderful volume and light. Developed in 1889 by Henry Houston and designed by G.W. & W.D. Hewitt, architects. Easy walk to Germantown Avenue, the Wissahickon trails, Springside Chestnut Hill Academy, and the historic St Martins Station on SEPTA’s Chestnut Hill West Regional Rail Line. Behind the home is the Philadelphia Cricket Club--the consummate neighbor--impeccably quiet and well-mannered, plus along with the nearby SCH, has extra security with eyes on the neighborhood.
