In a tucked away corner of Chestnut Hill, this c. 1929 French Normandy residence showcases beautifully proportioned rooms and a wealth of updates. A central foyer, large enough to accommodate the bar for your next soiree, is the central point from which all the major rooms spoke off. A grand-scale formal living room with wood-burning fireplace and beamed ceiling accommodates multiple seating areas. This space features plenty of natural light with casement windows and a set of French doors that open to a Juliette balcony. A very comfortably sized formal dining room, awash in natural light, seats a crowd with ease. Like many homes of this era, the butler’s pantry and kitchen are adjacent to the dining room, and the kitchen also is accessible from the foyer. The kitchen features neutral finishes, a tile backsplash, a broad window over the sink and stainless appliances, including an extra wall oven to supplement a gas range. Step down to a library/study with a gas fireplace and wall of built-ins. Again, the scale of this space is such that it accommodates multiple activity areas. All of the main rooms, along with the staircase from the first to the third floors, have gleaming, refinished wood floors. A large patio, ready for summer entertaining, is accessible from the butler’s pantry. Private quarters on the second and third floors include a large owner’s suite with tile bath, sitting area and dual closets behind French doors. An adjacent room can be a second bedroom or separate sitting room for the owner’s suite. This room, along with another, very expansive bedroom, accesses a gorgeous new full bath finished in marble. An au pair or guest suite with full bath is accessible from this room as is a rear staircase. The third floor has three bedrooms and a full hall bath. With electric upgraded, newer air conditioning units, newer security system, updates to the garage and fresh paint throughout nearly every room, plus other updates, this residence is move-in ready. A fenced yard is ready for dogs and kids to play. A wonderful opportunity to own in Chestnut Hill, just steps from the Morris Arboretum and the Wissahickon Trail.
