If a genuine, all-stone, Federal style home, built in 1800 with character and superb maintenance appeals to your historic side, then you must see this gem!! Situated on a half-acre lot, you have walking access to the Wissahickons Forbidden Drive ! Walk down a quiet country road with access from your backyard to experience nature and its beautiful trails for running, walking, fishing, biking, bird-watching, horseback riding and all the joys of Fairmount Park. This property is zoned for Residential use although Springfield township recently (January, 2020) ruled that a transfer to commercial would be possible if one had a need for limited business on the property, even though the owners are using Residential status at this time. On that subject, Springfield Township is just introducing a Historic category into their Zoning portfolio. As a new buyer, they would welcome an application for Historic zoning for this property. Experience Old Philadelphia and delight in the 1800 's architecture and style. The outstanding random width hard wood floors in the original part of the home have stood the centuries with strength and good care!! The four fireplaces, two on each level, will bring you back to the past when all cooking was done at the fire and upstairs fireplaces kept you warm at night!! In addition, the owners have collected beautiful antiques and collections from that period to add to the authenticity of the home. You'll feel a great sense of being back in this historic time!! An updated, bright kitchen with lovely maple cabinetry, ceramic tile counters and backsplash and ceramic flooring is an example of the modern updating while maintaining original charm. The Living Room with formal mantel and fireplace is one of a kind with the adjoining Dining Room, having the original cooking fireplace! A lovely venue for your dining experiences would be at this charming area!! The unique yet open floor plan allows for todays casual lifestyle but for formal entertaining as well. The renovations in the home are obvious in the updated window style, large window sills, circular staircase and custom amenities. When the owners moved into this home in 1997, their inspector told them that even though this house was built in the 1800's (chronological age), the homes economic lifes age was only 25 years old. This was due to the complete renovation and rehabilitation in the 1970!! And since then, the owners have updated many other areas: kitchen, new roof (2009), windows, fencing, etc. The electric heating is set up so that one has 7 different zones to control the temperatures, as well as the cost, in each room!! A generator hook-up is available. You won't be disappointed when you tour this home, either virtually or in person!! Whether you want a residential home or limited business, or want to combine both, you will see unlimited possibilities. Again, on the commercial side or on the historical side, this home is unique to the area and the future ideas are limitless!! Conveniently situated, this home is accessible to Philadelphia and its transportation system, the Blue Route, shopping malls, local small stores and markets. Here is your ideal suburban location with ideal access to Montgomery County and Philadelphia!! Commercial MLS# PAMC655962
