For the buyer seeking elegant, architecturally rich surroundings without the grounds maintenance associated with large single-family homes, "St Martins" is a welcoming, gracious home with great entertainment flow, fabulous outdoor spaces and truly unique interior spaces. On .40 acres in an ideally located, walkable neighborhood, this beautifully preserved, much-loved residence was designed by Hazelhurst & Huckel and built in 1890 by William Steele. Modifications made in the 1980s created a manageable home that is sized for today's living with 6,600+ square feet. Its Richardsonian Romanesque style, constructed of local Wissahickon schist and showcasing graceful curves, clipped gables, battlements and a corner turret, among other details, is strong, elegant and grand. The home's interiors are stunning. Its quarter-sawn oak walls and intricate millwork have never been painted. Just-restored hardwood floors are pristine. Note its six fireplaces, all unique, leaded and stained glass windows, cove ceilings and plaster moldings, seldom found in such beautiful condition. The main level features formal living and dining rooms, a well-appointed kitchen outfitted with expansive storage, quality appliances and granite countertops, mudroom, powder room and a large office/library. The second level has a large master suite, with a generous en suite bath and dressing room. Two additional bedrooms, a bath and the laundry room complete the floor. The third level, originally a separate apartment, has 2-3 additional bedrooms, a bath and a retro kitchen awaiting your interpretation. Each floor is separately zoned with its own furnace, air conditioner and programmable thermostat (2010) for efficiency. Beautifully maintained, St. Martins is listed as "Significant" in the Chestnut Hill Historic District Inventory and the property appears on the 1895 Bromley Philadelphia Atlas. Enjoy easy access to Center City, Blue Route, Turnpike and 309, a few short steps to the train station and walking distance to everything Chestnut Hill has to offer.
