Do not miss this elegant three-story Grand Colonial Revival in historic Mt Airy! As you approach the home, admire the pillared porch and Palladian entry with a leaded oriel window. Enter the home to a large central foyer with a sweeping three-story staircase and two large windows (one arched, one rectangular) that provide abundant light to the main floor. All windows throughout the home are large and deep, with 18-inch window sills. Throughout the home is intact baseboard and woodwork, as well as fully refinished gleaming oak ribbon floors. To the left of the entrance is a spacious living room with a wood-burning stone fireplace. Continue past the dining room with views of the backyard garden and into the large kitchen. The kitchen is bright and airy, with an original farmhouse sink, vintage appliances, and a kitchen island. Attached to the kitchen is a pantry/laundry/powder room. Feel the history throughout the home with a working call bell system and a rear stairway from the kitchen, swing door and sliding pocket door to the dining room. The upper two floors have three large bedrooms each, plus an additional 3rd-floor library with built-in shelving and second-floor office space. On the second floor, two bedrooms share access to a full bathroom, in addition to an ensuite bath with tiled stall shower. On the third floor is a third full bath (with original tiling and a clawfoot bath) in the hallway and an ensuite fourth bathroom. Downstairs is a massive basement with plentiful dry storage that could be used as a gym or additional recreation space. Outside, there is a paved driveway to a stone two-car garage and off-street parking for 4 or more cars. A hardscape flagstone terrace with flagstone oval and an additional small patio is perfect for relaxing in the late afternoon sun. Finally, the backyard is fenced with large trees providing shade and smaller flowering trees and perennials. This home is situated on a wide tree-lined street and is minutes from all you will ever need including cafes, grocery stores, restaurants and more. The home is a very short walk to Wissahickon Valley Park. For trips into Center City Philadelphia, the Upsal Train is only 5 minutes away. This is your chance to own a historic home.
