This is a NEW old house! Just 10 years old, this 2 story, 4 bedroom, 2 1/2 bath spacious custom residence was designed and built to feel like a classic traditional American home. Its character comes from the attractive use of 19th century salvaged heart pine flooring throughout, antique dining room mantel from an 18th century farmhouse, custom antique glass door knobs, antique silver sconces, pocket doors, oversized windows with solid brass window pulls, and much more including 10' ceilings on the first floor and 9' ceilings on second. But this house has NO old house blues. Instead, built in 2008, it contains all the elements you want in a new house: open plan that allows natural light; energy efficient windows for conservation of energy; knock-out eat-in kitchen with plenty of soapstone counter space, broad kitchen island, stainless steel high-end appliances, enormous storage, gas stove/oven that vents to outside, a Liebherr double-sided refrigerator/freezer with bio-fresh technology, an eat-in area surrounded by windows with views of sylvan woods; gas-fired HVAC with 2 zones; all new wiring with 320 AMPS power; modern plumbing; 2-car garage with electric door openers. MORE things to know: full floored vented attic, two rear decks, one covered (with speakers and flat screen TV), both with views of green parkland and woods, gas fireplace in dining room and wood-burning fireplace that sits between living room and kitchen giving heat to both areas, powder room on 1st floor, huge walk-in pantry near kitchen, master bedroom suite with walk-in closet and huge master bath (that includes clawfoot tub plus separate shower!), full unfinished basement has high ceilings and is ready to finish with sewer pipe hardened in for future installation of bath or bar sink should they be desired. Basement exits to driveway and offers interior access to 2-car garage. Located in East Falls, this home is perfectly located within a 10 minute drive to Center City, moments away from Schuylkill River or Fairmount Park hiking and biking trails, across the bridge from Main Line attractions, and almost around the corner from Manayunk restaurants and shops. Jefferson (Philadelphia) University and both private and public schools are just up the hill. This is one of 2018's best buys! Seller offering $5,000 buyer credit with acceptable offer.
