Description

Situated on a private corner of two esteemed avenues rests this exceptional Mid-19th Century property, newly repurposed as two luxury condominiums. Meticulously restored with thoughtful details such as historic replacement windows with character moldings and original curved wooden railings, the timeless character of the home has unquestionably been preserved, while graciously revived with modern luxuries. From the pristinely landscaped grounds to the blue stone walkway, the serene approach is equally as magnificent as the interior finishes. Beyond the covered porch and private entryway, the black and white tiled Marble Foyer with custom wainscoting greets you with distinguished character. Ascend the stairs to the main level, where a remarkable open floor plan welcomes you into the bright, elegant space. Gleaming White Oak Hardwood Flooring, Sophisticated Cove Ceilings, and Recessed Lighting are just a few of the refined details that set the ambiance of the home. Carry through into the Open Gourmet Chefs Kitchen boasting a statement Quartz Island with Turned Legs, ideal for dinner parties and entertaining guests. Flowing straight into the Living Room, this open layout was impeccably designed for hosting family and friends. This gorgeous level is completed by additional quarters for a formal sitting room, a powder room, and a Great Room with a Wood Burning Fireplace and access to the Impressive Two Level Roof Top Deck. Perched above Germantown Avenue with ample space for cocktail parties and summertime enjoyment, the Roof Deck may be the prized jewel of this property. With enchanting views of your manicured grounds and the bustling streets below, the Roof Deck makes your Top Of The Hill address that much better. Back inside, glide up the windowed hallway to the third level to discover the magnificent Master Suite, featuring a spacious Walk In Closet and radiant Master Bath En Suite. Evoking every luxury of a Private Spa, the master bath presents Dual Vanities, a Spacious Glass Shower Enclosure, Separate Water Closet and Radiant Tile Floors. Two additional bedrooms with expansive closet space enhance the floor, each featuring their own En Suite Bathrooms. One boasts a large soaking tub; the other, a gorgeous shower enclosure. A laundry room featuring Electrolux appliances completes this level. Back outside, one Private Garage Parking Spot and one Outdoor Parking Space is reserved for your exclusive use. As an upgrade, the garage can be outfitted with a Car Lift to maximize its benefit! Every splendor inside and outside of this home was exquisitely selected, yet the best part of this property is undeniably its location. Nestled in the heart of Chestnut Hill amongst the shops, restaurants, and cafes of Germantown Avenue, each time you step outside you will be consumed by the gorgeous, historic beauty that encompasses the neighborhood. Additionally located steps from the train, this home is within convenient distance to Center City Philadelphia, the suburbs, and major highways.
