Welcome home to 1014 West Hortter Street, a classic West Mount Airy colonial stone residence set atop lush manicured grounds located steps away from the Wissahickon Trails. As you approach the property, you will be greeted by gorgeous Japanese maple trees that adorn the front lawn. Some of the trees are believed to be as old as the property itself and they begin to tell the story of what makes this property so enchanting.

As you approach the property, you will be greeted by gorgeous Japanese maple trees that adorn the front lawn. Some of the trees are believed to be as old as the property itself and they begin to tell the story of what makes this property so enchanting. Breeze past the classic Wissahickon schist facade and enter into the home's central hall. The hallway connects the dining room, kitchen, and living room - each generously sized. The kitchen features Thermador, SubZero, Bosch and Gaggenau appliances, a central island, and separate breakfast nook that leads directly to a stone patio - perfect for entertaining. The expansive living room is situated next to the kitchen. Offering wonderful views of the grounds, the living room also features a fireplace and separate den with window seating. Architect Susan Maxman helmed a renovation that brought real and faux French doors into the living room, to visually connect the house with the gardens. A stately dining room as well as a convenient powder room complete the first level. Take the windowed stairwell up to the second floor landing, being sure to inspect the views on your way up. Four bedrooms and three bathrooms are accessible from the second floor landing. A character archway and a handful of curved window walls add sophistication while things like bespoke wallpaper and hidden closet drawers pack the charm. The primary suite is accessed via a private door that leads into its sitting area, which is flanked by five distinct closets, the bedroom and an en suite bathroom. The sunny primary bedroom features a wall of windows and is situated next to the ensuite bathroom which offers dual vanities as well as a glass enclosed shower and internal linen closet. The primary suite comes complete with a built-in desk overlooking the grounds. An additional door off of the hallway leads to a third floor flex space, which could be utilized as an office, fitness or play area. This home additionally features an expansive basement, large cedar closet and stand-alone garage. Before leaving the property, be sure to explore its best feature: An iron gate at the back of the house leads to what could only be called an "oasis". From the azaleas and hydrangeas to the berry garden and specimen trees, the rear and side yards are something out of a fairytale. A frog pond with waterlilies and a hidden swimming pool bring tangible bliss to this already exceptional home. 1014 W Hortter is in close proximity to popular Mount Airy Village, the Wissahickon Trails (access to the White Trail is at the end of Hortter!), and Chestnut Hill. Commuting to Center City by car or train is a breeze! We hope you will visit; 1014 Hortter is a true delight to the senses. |||| Floor plans are available.
