Rare opportunity to reimagine and renovate a late Victorian stone, semi-detached home in East Mount Airy. This diamond in the rough with many original details sits on a large 27’ x 163’ lot and has an apartment or in-law suite with separate entrance allowing both single family or duplex uses. The home is fronted by a glass enclosed porch with columns and large picture windows topped with fan lights and has a wood burning stove making for a welcoming entrance. A gated pergola separates the side yard from the huge, lushly planted back yard with multiple brick terraces - gather around the fire pit with a glass of wine or dine under the stars. This overgrown space is calling to be tamed by a gardner's green thumb. Enter the home from the side yard and through the enclosed porch where an original oak staircase with spindled balustrade and carved newel post are the center piece of the foyer. Mullioned glass doors lead you to the living room crowned with dentil moulding and random width wood floors just beg to be refinished to their original luster. The back of the house holds the wood paneled dining room and adjoining kitchen which are separated by a breakfast bar. Windows on two sides bring in sunshine and offer views of the surrounding greenery and gardens, bringing the outdoors in. There is an additional front room off the foyer with views to the street and yard. The second floor front bedroom offers high ceilings, deep window sills, and a built-in mirror fronted oak wardrobe. A second bedroom and full primary bath with jacuzzi tub complete this level. The third floor has two more large rooms with dormer windows, wood floors, built-ins, and an ensuite vintage three piece bath with shower tub combination. The back of the third floor has the home’s second kitchen which can be closed off as part of the separate apartment or in-law suite. A spiral stair leads down to the second floor bedroom/living space which has an exterior stair for separate access/entrance from the garden. A full size basement gives abundant storage and accommodates the home’s mechanical systems. Just a block from all the conveniences on Germantown Avenue like the Wawa, Jyoti Indian Bistro, a Wine & Spirits Shop & McMenimans Tavern and just a little over a mile to Weavers Way Co-op, The Valley Green Wissahickon Creek and trails or the fabulous shops and restaurants of Chestnut Hill. This home has a wonderful location, minutes to both the Allens Lane and Sedgwick Septa stations. Bring your vision and your builder or architect, this home is not to be missed.
