Stately Wissahickon Schist Archway Facade welcomes you into this elegant sanctuary on one of the nicest tree lined streets in Mt Airy. Upon entering you will be dazzled by the original refinished parquet floors, sunken LR with striking stone, wood burning fireplace, bay window with deep windowsills, wainscot molding and coffer ceiling. The wood banister defines the width of the LR and merges beautifully with DR also w/ wainscot and crown molding, the ductless A/C that cools the whole first fl and double windows flooding the room with light. For convenience the pretty 1/2 bath is tucked under the stairs. These owners also added a coat closet to the foyer. Flowing from DR you will find your lovely K with lots of granite counters, glass front cabinets, brand new SS dishwasher, stove, microwave, refrig (to be installed 3/4) and breakfast bar. In addition there is an adjacent breakfast room being used as a sitting room with original butler cabinet. At the top of the lovely wood stairs is the original stained glass sky light creating sparkle to the staircase. The Master Suite has 2 large closets, en-suite bath with vintage glass tiles offset beautifully w/ updated shower and fixtures. The hall bath has also been carefully updated while preserving the vintage glass tiles. 2 additional LARGE bedrooms (one with 2 closets both with original etched mirrors) and 2 hall closets (one cedar) complete the 2nd fl. All the glass knobs and hardware are original and in fine working order. Replacement windows throughout. On the lower level you will find the finished familyroom with access to the over sized one car garage w/ opener and the large laundry/utility room that houses the state of the art boiler/hot water system. Outdoors there is just enough yard front & back to satisfy your gardener while enjoying the fresh air of your patio. Meticulous inside and out. 2 short blocks to train, short walk to Mt Airy shops and restaurants, close to Chestnut Hill and area highways. This is a GEM to be seen.
