This gorgeous Victorian stone single with large backyard occupies one of the prettiest, tree-lined blocks in all of East Mount Airy. A 3-car driveway and a charming front porch with swing welcomes you home and makes the perfect setting to relax and enjoy the view of this wonderful community. Enter into a lovely foyer where you will be immediately taken in by gorgeous details including leaded glass windows, ornate woodwork including banister, ceiling beams, and built-in bench, and beautiful hardwood floors that continue throughout the home. To your right is the spacious, sunny living room with a bay window, ornate mantle piece, and a pellet stove fireplace, that is as pretty as it is functional for warming the space. Beyond the living room is an elegant dining room with another pellet stove fireplace, built-in hutch and great light. The eat-in custom kitchen has soapstone counters, Moroccan style tiled backsplash, cherry cabinets, a cozy breakfast nook and a skylight letting in lots of light. The first floor comes complete with a convenient half bathroom. The kitchen opens onto a large flagstone patio and a wonderful, private fully fenced-in backyard with lots of room for gardening in the raised beds. A BBQ is connected to a natural gas line making for easy outdoor dining and entertaining. The yard also features five mature blueberry bushes and a raised bed with thornless blackberries. These mature plants will produce delicious fruit in the summer if you can pick it before the songbirds eat it all! A large London plane tree, planted when the house was built in 1907, shades the yard during the summer heat. Ascend the original staircase to the second floor, home to the master suite with a spacious renovated tiled bath featuring a stall shower, another spacious bedroom, plus a light-filled den/study with custom built-in shelving and window seat. The den currently has an open doorway but could be converted into a bedroom or closed office by the next owner. The third floor has two additional bedrooms, full bath with shower/tub combo and a large bonus storage room. A huge walkout finished lower level comes complete with full bedroom, full bathroom, additional large space that makes a great playroom or family room and a separate laundry room. The large open space is currently used for a pool table and the bedroom is used as a home office that guests can access through the back door, and that has a legal zoning variance so it can used for a commercial office, offering lots of possibilities for running a business from home, or for a great in-law/au pair suite or great guest quarters. This location cannot be beat, just two blocks from the Septa Chestnut Hill East Line and less than a mile from Germantown Avenue's many shops and restaurants, in both Mount Airy and Chestnut Hill. Several split AC/heating units located in the main level and in the lower level bedroom/office make for an effective yet cost efficient alternative to central air conditioning.
