You've encountered a treasure! Authentic and gorgeous architecture- combining a loving restoration of quality craftsmanship with added designer renovations to serve the next 100 years. Nestled amongst heirloom landscaping and expansive private gardens, and served by towering trees, this charming world beyond the picket fence is seeking its next caretakers... Ascend the freshly painted steps of the Wrap-around Porch and a true "Welcome" awaits through the original doublewide Oak Doors! Breathtaking, gleaming heart of pine floors meander throughout the gracious layout of Foyer, Front Parlor, Library/ Living Room, then a Formal Dining Room. The back Kitchen Wing of the home hosts a second staircase, plus sun drenched rooms that delight the senses! Inside out and outside in, this rusticly playful but elegant design incorporates state-of-the-art appliances, juxtaposed with original cast iron stove and laundry sink. Carrera Marble accents with gorgeous granite counters, plus handsome soft close Shaker cabinets- all provide Chef an inspiring respite. A brand new full Bath, plus super fresh first floor Laundry Room delight with an old fashioned screen door slam- sharing news of an entry or a departure to the beckoning rear yard and gardens. Through the mottled glass of original wood windows, an indoor potting shed offers a gardener ease and practical space for chores with an additional separate entrance. A slate patio for al fresco dining, established grapevines, a dedicated vegetable plot, a more formal perennial garden, and a fanciful she/he shed complete the verdant picture. Follow the graceful stair rail to the second level and wonderful rooms await. Interconnected spaces allow the imagination to flourish with private retreats. A charming Clawfoot tub surrounded by wainscoating serves the 4 Bedrooms. Upstairs again... then a 5th Bedroom perches adjacent to a vast loft perfect for an Artist or Woodworker's Studio, or a moody Yoga retreat. Warm and engaged Community of caring neighbors- a commuters paradise with a quick walk to Melrose Park Train Station then just 4 stops to Center City then on to the Airport. Shop in leafy adjacent 'burbs of Montgomery County. A plethora of dining and shopping amenities such as weekly Farmer's Markets, new Goat House Creamery Cafe, olde time Movie Theatres, Trader Joe's and Wholefoods...Low City Taxes!
