Welcome to your new home!!! The 600 block of Elkins Avenue was constructed in the late 1920's on a quiet lane with no through traffic. A series of unique designs combine Spanish Colonials (my listing!), English Tudors & Dutch Colonials with stately street trees and sidewalks. It's a wonderful little pocket neighborhood that's easily accessible to the Elkins Park Train Station (3 blocks away) and all the restaurants, stores, parks & the library are just a few blocks away. Elevated from the street, a few steps up to the front door and there is a large entertainment patio out front. There is ample room for outdoor furniture and even a fire pit & is a wonderful spot to enjoy the morning sunrise with a cup of coffee or tea or relax with an evening beverage and wave to your neighbors as they enjoy their daily walks. The siting of the house allows for wonderful Southern light to enter the entire side of the house (including the basement). One will begin to appreciate all the original architectural details including the exposed rafter tails on the sunroom, inset tiles in the original stucco & a beautiful solid wood entry door and half-round columns. With over 3,000 S.F. (plus a finished basement), there is ample space to entertain or get away from everything! One enters into the full-width living room that is anchored by the original plaster & brick wood burning fireplace (with a pretty arched firebox), re-finished hardwood floors throughout and numerous recessed lights. Dual custom bookcases flank the entrance to the sunroom. The staircase is tucked into one corner with an arched window and the beautiful sunroom up front is flooded with light from 3 sides of arched casement windows. The large dining room was recently enhanced with crown molding. Tucked off the dining room is the perfect little coffee bar/wet bar on the way to the basement stairs and powder room. The heart of the home is the kitchen, and this one certainly will impress! Completely remodeled in 2015, it provides absolutely everything one would need to prepare great meals. A large breakfast bar (with a chalkboard wall underneath) can hold 3 stools. There are two sinks (one in front of a Southern facing window with the dishwasher), beautiful custom cabinets, quartz counters, a herringbone subway tiled backsplash, a pot-filler over the stove, under cabinet & recessed lighting and a microwave niche & large fridge. A huge opening provides direct sightlines to the 2-story, sunken family room with the 2nd wood burning fireplace (with a new mantel and stone surround) and a wall of custom built-in bookcases. A large breakfast room is just to the side of the kitchen as well as a perfectly scaled 1st floor laundry. There is a tiled mudroom tucked at the rear that provides direct access to the driveway, detached 2-car garage and fenced rear yard. Downstairs, the majority of the basement has been finished, including another wet bar area, yet there are two large storage rooms & the mechanicals. There is even a "kegerator" tucked under the stairs that services the wet bar upstairs! On the 2nd floor, the master suite occupies the entire front of the house, including 4 large closets, direct access to the roof deck over the sunroom and an updated en-suite bathroom. There is an updated hall bathroom to service the remaining 3 bedrooms PLUS a really unique loft/office area with a custom wrought iron railing overlooking the family room. The house has recently been enhanced with central A/C that services the entire 2nd floor, family room (that keeps the kitchen cool as well) and the stair landing that keeps the living room cool in warmer months. Solar panels were also added to provide green energy vs. the standard PECO electric bills. We in the real estate industry use the phrase "move-in ready" too often, but for this lovely home, it truly does describe what you're buying.
