Inviting and full of warmth, this gorgeous West Mount Airy Center Hall Colonial set on a lush, green property welcomes you in with its white picket fence and classic charm. This solid Wissahickon schist home was fully renovated and boasts beautiful details that are found in every corner including the oak hardwood floors with mahogany inlay, wainscoting and crown molding, large cased openings, intricate stained glass windows, two fireplaces, built-in bookshelves, and dormers. Step up the porch and into the foyer. To the right is a grand formal living room with a stone fireplace and mantle. Off the living room and drenched in natural light is the sun porch offering a second fireplace and a wall of windows overlooking the huge London Plane tree arching over the front yard. The formal dining room sits on the other side of the foyer (currently used as a family room) and flows to the kitchen by a swinging original leaded glass door. This big kitchen was recently renovated and it offers all the modern conveniences such as built-in stainless steel appliances, a deep farmhouse sink, ample cabinet storage with a pantry and a peninsula, and stunning granite counter tops. Just on the other side of the back stairwell is a spacious eat-in area and a built-in wet bar with a wine chiller. The second floor is home to the large master suite, a den with a laundry closet (one of two laundry areas), two large bedrooms, and a full bathroom.  The master suite has a walk-in closet, and a large ensuite tiled bathroom with Jacuzzi tub and separate frame-less glass stall shower. The second full bathroom on this floor was updated but maintains the 1920s style with black and white penny tile floors and original white subway tile from floor to ceiling. Up the stairs to the third floor you’ll find two more spacious bedrooms and an updated full bathroom with bead board trim and a separate tub. The home was completely renovated in 2008, including new whole-house wiring, roof, hot water heater, and 2-zone HVAC system.  The yard is one of the most notable features of the home with a large lawn, pergola and patio framed with greenery and gardens, mature plantings with some unique specimen trees like the paper-bark maple, and a hidden wooded area keeping true to the local Wissahickon landscape! The two-car garage sits off the yard accessible by a long, private driveway and more storage is available in the full, dry basement and a second laundry room. This West Mount Airy home is exceptionally located, one-and-a-half blocks to a Wissahickon trailhead (hiking, mountain biking and horseback riding), a five minute walk to two Septa stations, 10 minutes to the shops and restaurants of Chestnut Hill, Manayunk and Roxborough, and 15 minutes to Center City!

I can’t say enough good things about Claudia. She represented us for the sale of our home, which sold in 5 days at $15K above asking. She accurately represented the value of our home, but we got cold feet and asked to list lower. She gently urged us to list at the low end of her estimate, and it  turned out that her original estimate of our home’s value is exactly what it sold for! We were nervous throughout the process and she helped to alleviate our concerns, but when we had to decide between two complex offers she explained the differences between them and their respective pros and cons very comprehensively. She also caught mistakes that the other involved parties missed, and was incredibly detailed oriented about the details of the offers and our replies. In the end she made something as stressful as selling our family home nearly stress-free, and surprised us with a photo book of the listing photos of our home at closing. She was just a wonderful agent from beginning to end and I cannot recommend her highly enough.
