    Property Details

    They just don't build them like they used to!!! While not the oldest house in Chestnut Hill, this solid stone Colonial that was built in 1951 and is a great example of quality craftsmanship. Located on one of the quietest streets in all of Chestnut Hill, it's just a few blocks away from all the hustle & bustle of Germantown Avenue, but a world away from the crowds. Easy to walk to everything, easy to get away from it all. This is only the 2nd time that this property has been available to purchase in its 69 year history. The current Owners purchased it from the original family and began a 15+ year process of loving, restoring & enhancing the property. The kitchen was replaced in 2005 and new appliances installed in 2015. There were significant electrical upgrades in 2005 along with a radon remediation system. In 2008, a completely new GAF slateline architectural shingles & copper gutters were installed and new copper downspouts in 2014. The basement was partially finished into a comfortable family room (with a fireplace!) in 2008. The powder room was renovated in 2009. A new high-efficiency Buderus hot water boiler was installed in 2015, and a new central A/c system in 2019. The entire septic system was replaced in January of 2019, and a new hot water heater in 2020. Now ready for the 3rd Owner in its lifetime, it offers an excellent combination of newer systems and simple, understated charm. Not too big, not too small with perfectly scaled rooms for entertaining. The large living room has a large double-hung window facing South, a massive picture window facing West and a central wood burning fireplace. The dining room has two large double-hung windows and a simple chair rail. The updated kitchen has a large breakfast area and direct access to the rear yard & patio. There is a rear hall with a coat closet and the renovated powder room, and access to the driveway and the 2-car garage tucked around the rear of the home. The large master bedroom has two closets and an en-suite bath with a stall shower. The remaining three bedrooms are all ample in size, especially the 4th bedroom that spans the entire width & depth of the garage below. The attic is partially floored for additional storage. The property is just a 1/2 acre, yet is surrounded by a large estate that provides stolen vistas over greenery everywhere! When you are relaxing on the rear flagstone patio, you do not feel like you're in the city, but enjoying a suburban retreat within walking distance to a cosmopolitan village! Come explore this hidden gem, tucked away on a quiet street.
