Architecturally Striking. Thick carved oak staircase, graceful lines, stain glass colored windows, original stripped woodwork, decorative faux fireplaces - this 6 Bedroom, 2-1/2 Bath, c. 1890, 3sty stone Queen Anne Victorian will delight any true belle. Tall ceilings, refinished oak hardwood floors on 1st floor, yellow pine on 2nd and 3rd floors, generous rooms with detailing you won't find in today's homes. Enter into a bright welcoming foyer. At the front of the main floor you will find the living room which is elegant and cozy at the same time. The living and dining room walls have both been redone in Venetian Plaster just painted( 8/2019 ), which further adds to the character of the home. The dining room is large, and is perfect for any kind of gathering or entertaining, there is also a unique built in cabinet, which still has the original skeleton keys. When you pass through the dining room you enter the tastefully updated eat-in kitchen with new stainless appliances, painted wood white cabinets, gray toned subway tiled wall backsplash, new granite countertops. Off of the kitchen you pass through to the mudroom where you'll find great storage pantry and a first floor half bath. You can also walk right out into your own fenced back yard. On the 2nd floor you will find 3 large bedrooms and a full hall bath. The 3rd full also offers another 3 bedrooms and another full hall bathroom. The location of this gullion is amazing and so walk-able. Don't want to drive, public transportation abounds - 3 septa regional rail stations (the chestnut hill east and west lines), Septa Bus transportation to at least 4 different bus lines are all right around the corner. Walk right up to Germantown Ave and you will find so many restaurants, shopping, an Acme, WaWa, there's a deli less than a block away on Mt. Airy Ave, the newly renovated, state of the art Lovett Library. Who wouldn't want to live here. With this home it's more than just the home, it's the community. CNN recently named Mt. Airy one of the top 10 city neighborhoods in the US.ENJOY a diverse urban neighborhood. Imagine spending your spring waking up to the sweet smell of honeysuckle, surrounded by beautiful turn of the century stone architecture nestled in the cool green of the trees, and bright colors of the azaleas....And you almost forgot you were a few minutes drive thru the park to Center City.
