Welcome to paradise on the park, literally ! It is a rare opportunity to find a home that has quiet elegance, sophistication, and a gorgeous setting, yet a comfortable size, style, and cottage like coziness. This is that house! Sited on a hillside overlooking the Wissahickon, this special property offers a unique floor plan. From the front door, the entrance hall opens to a fantastic step-down living room with pegged oak flooring, beamed ceiling, large fireplace, and an oversized window seat that is the perfect perch for watching the seasons’ change. Across from the living room, the large, beautiful dining room can host the best of dinner parties, and has a beamed ceiling, and french doors that open to a slate terrace with custom wood slatted awning. Transitioning from the dining room is a full pantry that includes a laundry area and entrance to the sunny, eat-in, cooks kitchen, with back stairs, Italian tile flooring, Caesar Stone counters, Wolf cook top, double wall ovens, warming drawer, island with ample storage, and office nook. Every room on the first floor offers beautiful views of the multi -tiered garden. The second floor offers a flexible and unique layout that includes a master bedroom with fireplace, en-suite bath with double sinks and large shower, two large closets, and an attached study that could also serve as a dressing room or nursery. Down the hall is a second large bedroom ( presently used as a den) and hall bath. Continue further to the large third bedroom ,also accessed from the back stairs and easily closed off from the other rooms by a hall door. The third floor is home to a fourth bedroom, bathroom, and oversized attic storage room with cedar closet and whole house fan.This back area of the house has an outside entrance and would work well for home office, or au pair/in-law suite.Rounding out the living space is a lower level family room with wet bar, that provides easy access to the large rear patio. The grounds of this property are truly special and highlighted by a heated, in ground pool that is exquisitely configured around a stone wall . In the evening ,with the pool lights lit and enhanced by a few flood lights nestled in the grass, it provides an amazing feature to the landscape. The property is fully fenced and hidden from view, has a separate shed, outdoor shower, and mature perennial gardens. This is an amazing , secluded location that is minutes from the shops and restaurants of Chestnut Hill, and public transportation yet totally private and serene.
This home must be seen to be really appreciated. One will rarely find a better spot.
