Property Description

This updated Colonial Victorian home is an architectural delight offering a picture perfect blend of style, sophistication, and craftsmanship located on a quiet street in a friendly neighborhood. This home is conveniently located within walking distance to Myer Elementary School and the delightful Elkins Park town center which features several great restaurants, cafes, and shops. It's the perfect destination for drinks and ice cream on your evening stroll. If you want a little taste of nature and tranquility on your morning jog just head over to Highschool Park. Both the Melrose and Elkins Park and train stations are a short distance from home making your commute to the city feel effortless. As you approach your new home, you will be captivated by several cottage style perennial flower gardens blooming with surprises throughout the seasons and the large wrap around porch where you can sit to unwind after a long day. Inside you will find 7 spacious bedrooms, Including a first floor updated Master with en-suite bath and access to your backyard patio. This is a perfect space in the rear of the home for the in-laws or your live-in Au-pair. The foyer of your new home will  immediately invoke a sense of grandeur and spaciousness as your eyes are drawn from the hardwood floors up the beautifully crafted three story staircase. The first floor boasts 12 foot high ceilings, crown molding, and an abundance of large windows filling each room with natural light and beauty throughout the day. The open concept sitting room enjoys a stylish chandelier and pocket doors to the large dining room which is the perfect place to entertain friends and family this holiday season. On those chilly winter nights, get cozy in front of your brick fireplace located in the family room. This space also features a one-of-a-kind handcrafted built-in  bench providing plenty of space for everyone to enjoy. The recently remodeled kitchen flaunts beautiful cherry colored cabinetry, granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, tile flooring, and a doorway leading to the backyard. The truly unique and stand-out feature of this kitchen is the butler staircase leading to the second floor. The second floor, like the first also boasts 12 foot high ceilings in all 3 of the spacious bedrooms and 2 full baths. One of which showcases a newly reglazed vintage clawfoot tub perfect for soaking.  Both bathrooms have been updated this year. All three bedrooms on the second floor feature at least three large windows and closet space. A true gem in a house of this period. The two largest bedroom spaces share a private connecting doorway, giving you unlimited options while creating your perfect sanctuary.

As you continue up the stairs to the 3rd floor you will find 3 more spacious bedrooms with valuated ceilings perfect for the kids or guests. The possibilities really are endless with so much space. The unfinished basement is a blank slate perfect for extra storage.
