Quite wonderful 3-story stone center hall colonial, c. 1916, where grand house meets 1/2 acre landscaped private grounds, where architectural distinction meets 2020 era upgrades, and where Germantown meets Mount Airy! This very special property offers 5 bedrooms, 3 full baths and 2 half baths. A comfortable solarium fully renovated in 2003 with radiant heat, a 2015 kitchen renovation, a 2011 main bath renovation to die for, 2 working fireplaces, and private hidden hot tub are just some of the special features. Floor Plan: 1st floor: Broad center hall with coat closet and powder room; Living room with wood-burning fireplace with marble surround, crown molding, handsome floor-to-ceiling built-in cabinetry, track lighting, triple south-facing windows overlooking rear grounds, split system; Formal dining room with crown molding, gas fireplace with marble surround and hearth, split system; Solarium, surrounded by double pane windows with radiant heat under new ceramic tile floor, ceiling fan, exit to front terrace; Fantastic newer kitchen that will delight any serious cook: tropical wood flooring, gas cooktop, gas wall oven, 2 year old LG refrigerator/freezer, stainless steel appliances, abundant composite quartz counters, double deep black sink with garbage disposal, trash compactor, filtered drinking water, Bosch dishwasher, new windows, split system; Sunny breakfast room with exit to rear grounds just a few steps to the hot tub!; Powder room; Laundry room with washer and 1 year old gas dryer, built-in cabinets; Mud room that has main exit to yard and gardens. 2nd floor: Main bedroom, enjoying sunshine all day long, stretches from front to back of house with 2 closets with beveled glass mirrors, ceiling fan, crown molding, split system, door to main bathroom (also accessed from hall); Main bath has shower stall with glass surround, custom made sink cabinet, Toto Washlet toilet, ceramic tile floors, interior window shutters; two other bedrooms on the 2nd floor are connected by a Jack 'n Jill new bathroom with shower over tub. The larger bedroom offers a huge closet and split system. The small bedroom has been used as an office and still retains a wall of cabinetry that was once part of a 2nd kitchen there. Just off that bedroom is a sweet, sunny, airy sunroom with heat, but no CA. 3rd floor: Two large bedrooms with good closets, each with a split system, flank the 3rd floor bathroom that has a wonderful claw foot tub and ceramic tile floor. Another bathroom hasn't been used in many years (pipes are capped and the room has been used for storage). Giant attic room in far back of the 3rd floor. Basement: Full, unfinished, for utilities, storage, work areas and powder room. It is wonderfully clean, high-ceilinged, with exit to steps to back yard. Heat is provided by Burnham gas-fired hot water boiler that was completely overhauled in 2019 with new electronic controller, updated ignition module, flue damper, and new properly sized circulator pump. The boiler heater flue was re-lined in 2000. 50 gallon gas-fired domestic hot water heater. 200 AMP electric circuit breaker panel is backed up by a 14,000 watt whole house generator that goes on automatically if house electricity goes off in a storm. In 2000, house was wired for internet and cable, upgraded to wireless in 2012. The grounds, especially in the rear, are set up to be private from the street with patio areas, koi pond, floating deck and strategically located trees and shrubs. Carriage house offers 2 -car garage on one side and over-sized one-car garage on the other. It has a basement, and the apartment above needs finishing. Carriage house sold "as-is". Great location close to the Wissahickon, 15 minute drive to Center City, 10 minutes from all the resources of Mount Airy, Germantown and Chestnut Hill. And surrounded by beautiful homes in this corner of the community.
