What's old is new once again!!! This spacious (almost 3,000SF) Mansard Victorian was completely gutted & renovated in 2008. The Owners retained the good bits (beautiful trim moldings, the pocket doors, the original floors on the first floor, the bead board ceiling on the porch and the original heating vents. What was done? The entire house was re-wired. The entire house was re-plumbed. The entire house was re-roofed. The laundry room was moved to the 1st floor. The kitchen and all 3 bathrooms were completely replaced with new everything. The furnace, central A/C (yes, there is A/C!) and the H/W heater were also replaced. The main water supply line was just replaced in 2017. Nothing is needed to be finished, with everything being just 10 years old. Combine all the updates with off-street parking for 4 cars and an over-sized lot (a huge rectangular lot goes behind the 2 neighboring houses, providing a great yard for your animals or gardening)! While the listing is 4 bedrooms, there are 2 additional rooms on the 3rd floor (without closets) that provide extra space for a home office, craft room or anything else you need without taking away from the sleeping rooms. The first floor has a living & dining room that is divided by a set of pocket doors. A large closet is under the front stairs & one original kitchen cupboard is retained. The large kitchen has ample cooking, prep space & storage while there is a large area for a breakfast table. The rear family room has direct access to the yard, the powder room & the laundry. Three bedrooms and a hall bath (with a tub/shower combination) occupy the 2nd floor while the 4th bedroom, the 2 extra rooms and another hall bath (with stall shower) finish the 3rd floor. Due to the mansard roof, the floor space is fully functional on the 3rd floor (no ducking under low roof lines!). While the basement is un-finished, it provides great storage and has a Bilco door to the side yard. It's a large home at an affordable price, perfectly located within easy walking distance to all that Elkins Park has to offer, including CreekSide Coop, two SEPTA stations (Melrose Park OR Elkins Park), Gimbel Fields (for the local Little League and softball games), High School & Ogontz Parks for active or passive recreation. Come home to Elkins Park!
