Appealing, warm, spacious, and wonderfully cared for. Traditionally styled stone and stucco detached home with 2 1/2 stories, 4 bedrooms, 2 1/2 baths. Several things set this house off from others: It is set back from the street to create privacy; It is a 1920's house with central air via Mitsubishi split systems; It has a new gourmet eat-in kitchen with sunny views to the landscaped rear garden. And there is more: The first floor powder room is recently renovated. The second floor bath has radiant heat in the floor--sooooo nice in the winter! The basement is fully finished with carpet and gas fireplace. Exit from basement to rear yard. Gas hot water boiler. Floor plan: 1st floor: Living room with wood-burning fireplace (never used by this owner), Dining room with sunny bay window, new eat-in Kitchen with gas cooking, refrigerator, dishwasher, garbage disposal, microwave, plenty of counterspace and cabinetry, powder room, built-in butler pantry cabinetry, exit to patio and fenced yard. The current owners have switched the uses of the Living Room and Dining Room to create a comfortable sitting area in the middle of the house by the kitchen. 2nd floor: south-facing Master bedroom floods with sunshine, 2nd bedroom with bay window, 3rd smaller bedroom now used as an office, terrific hall bathroom with stall shower. 3rd floor: This huge bedroom under the roof eaves is comfortable and bright and offers great space, lots of storage closets and a full very large bathroom with shower over tub. Basement: Large finished family room with gas fireplace and unfinished rear area with washer, dryer, laundry sink, work area, utilities and exit to yard. This house isn't too large, and it isn't too small. It's just the right size! Located two blocks from Germantown Avenue's shops, coffee shops, restaurants. Short walk to either bus or commuter train public transportation. And an easy hike to the trails and natural ways along the Wissahickon Creek. Showings begin Saturday, 3/30/19.
