Gracious Center Hall Colonial
If you're looking for a home with separate art, music, exercise or office space or if you need room for an au pair or in-law, this home is for you! Located in a peaceful setting like no other in Springfield Township, this stately 5+ bedroom 3 and a half bath stone home sits high on a hill on a lightly traveled cul-de-sac street and offers lovely breezes, views of the Wissahickon Valley and wonderful sunsets!
This home features original architectural details such as multiple fireplaces, unpainted woodwork, built-in china cabinets, bay windows, interior shutters and hardwood flooring. The property includes a 300+ square foot space that adjoins the detached 2 car garage. The 1+ acre property provides space for outdoor entertaining and offers exceptional privacy and extraordinary light. The gardens have been well maintained and include a Franklinia tree from Bartram's Garden, mature hydrangea, azalea and rhododendron as well as blueberry bushes, day lilies and daisies. There is a 20 by 30 foot covered porch with distinctive columns that provides plenty of room for dining alfresco or relaxation at the end of the day.
The gracious center hall features a beautiful 3 story staircase and the spacious living room features a wood burning fireplace, bay window and views of the gardens. There is a first floor powder room tucked away between the living room and the center hall. The dining room has a wood burning fireplace, a built-in china cabinet with glass doors and plate and crown moldings.
There are 4 bedrooms on the second floor, one currently used as a TV room, and two full baths, one which has been recently renovated and a large master bathroom that has both shower and tub. The third floor features a huge family room, an additional bedroom plus an office or storage room and another bath that would make a wonderful au-pair or in-law suite. The eat-in kitchen has cherry cabinetry and stainless steel appliances. Adjoining the kitchen is a mudroom with exit to the outside and a butler's pantry with walk-in storage room and first floor laundry.
This impressive home is less than a 5 minute drive to Chestnut Hill and is in the Springfield School District. It is convenient to many shops and restaurants and to 309 and the turnpike. There is a new Springfield Township state of the art elementary (K-2) school located across the street and that is nearing completion.
This beautiful home is priced to reflect updating that is needed and is being sold in as is condition but rarely does an property like this become available so don't miss your chance to own this one-of-a-kind property!
