Perched above a quiet canopied corner, just steps from the foot trails of Carpenter's Woods, you will find the quintessential Wissahickon schist center-hall Colonial. Sitting on almost an acre and a half the 8,000 square foot home seamlessly integrates the old and new in creative ways that are both modern and timeless. Upon entering the home, you will be greeted by a gracious hall featuring gorgeous restored hardwood floors, soaring ceilings and a statement grand staircase. To the right of the foyer is the formal dining room with a feature fireplace and wall length window seat. A set of french doors lead to the sunken sunroom soaked in light which is the perfect retreat for a quiet morning coffee or a good book. The chef’s kitchen features a paneled refrigerator, double wall ovens, and a long center island with room for seating. A breakfast nook and a wall of built-in cabinetry complete the kitchen. On the opposite side of the entry is the spacious living room, which includes classic millwork, twin arched openings with pocket shelves and a double sided fireplace bookended by two sets of french doors. The double doors lead to a bright and cozy family room with a beautiful stone wall that reminds of Valley Green. The comforting space offers direct access to the newly laid bluestone patio which opens to the enchanting salt water swimming pool and lush garden with wrought iron surround. The second level includes a stunning main suite. The primary suite features a wall of built-in closets, custom dressing room with an abundance of detailed storage, a small center island and recessed lighting. The ensuite bathroom rounds out the space, with marble throughout, dual sinks, a soaking tub and glass enclosed rain shower. The convenient home office and matching set of Jack and Jill suites balances the second level. The third floor hosts a large completely renovated great room with a wet bar, half bath and plenty of space for entertaining and gaming. Additional flex space includes an exercise room and spa. Central air, new slate roof and contemporary windows throughout are proof that this property is cared for at the highest level. The rolling lawn and wooded lot are simply an extension of the Wissahickon Valley. The abundant scale allows for a by-right subdividable parcel which adds significant value to this dynamic property. The mature plantings with vibrant blooms and specimen trees make it hard to believe that you are directly connected to the culture of downtown Philadelphia. The location is ideal, close to restaurants, museums, parks, cafes and the regional rail. Easy access to both New York and DC via 30th Street Station which is only 6 miles from the door step.
