Tucked away on a quiet one-way street in the sought after St. Martins section of Chestnut Hill, this gracious 5 bedroom 2 1/2 bath stone single has the honor of being named Historically Significant on the National Register. Designed by noted architects, G. W. and W. D. Hewitt, in the Queen Anne style, the home was built in 1886 with the finest materials and the highest standards. Special features include a fabulous, newly restored large front porch with period moldings, balusters and millwork, perfect for entertaining or just relaxing with a book. Highlights of the first floor are a lovely vestibule entrance, living and dining rooms with soaring ceilings, beautiful woodwork, pocket doors, custom plantation shutters, and a wood burning fireplace. The attractive, well-equipped kitchen has a granite center island and back-splash, double wall ovens and connects to a small office area. The laundry/mudroom offers plenty of storage, leads to the deep back yard and also connects to the powder room. Upstairs, the stunning master bedroom has floor to ceiling windows, built-in bookshelves, custom shutters, and a wood burning fireplace. Two additional spacious bedrooms and a newly renovated hall bath equipped with a soaking tub and a waterfall shower complete the second floor. The third floor has two additional bedrooms, one of which is part of a suite with a recently remodeled bath. A full basement equipped with an exercise room is an added bonus. Gorgeous refinished wood floors throughout the home and upgraded electric. A lovely and manageable yard with mature trees and plantings. A very short walk to local schools, the beautiful Wissahickon Park trails, trains to Center City, as well as the shops, restaurants and markets of historic Chestnut Hill. This well loved home in a superb location is not to be missed.
