Perched above Saint Martin~s Lane, this 1.3 acre property offers the best of Chestnut Hill living! Built in 1909, this stately brick home of 6 bedrooms 5.5 baths seamlessly integrates the old and new in creative ways that are both modern and timeless. The expanded kitchen with skylights, a wall of windows and three sets of French doors opening onto a brick patio feels like an enormous sunroom. It has top of the line appliances, extensive storage, and ample room for cooking, eating and lounging. The... formal living room is anchored by a beautiful fireplace and enhanced by built-in cabinetry and window seat. The formal dining room has beautiful French doors leading to the patio and is separated from the kitchen by pocket doors, providing as much or as little interaction between the two as you would like. The entry hall and staircase features beautiful original millwork, as well as a large skylight at the top. Master suite features a built-in closet system, full bath, walk-in closet, and a sitting room with fireplace, balcony, and built-in shelving. The second floor is rounded out by a hall bath and two additional bedrooms with fireplaces. The third floor features two hall baths, and three bedrooms. The largest of these has a fireplace, built-in closet system, and vaulted ceiling with windows and exposed beams. The~Little House~ located in the rear of the property was built in 1922 for the original owner. This structure includes a two car garage carriage house with cedar shingle roof and slate patio. This living space offers a large living room with a fireplace and decorative mouldings, kitchen, and two bedrooms and bath on the second floor totalling 1925 additional square feet.. The beautiful pool with brick surround is enclosed with a wrought iron fence with wisteria arbor. Thoughtful professional landscaping provides interest, color, and seclusion year round. The brick retaining wall of over 400 feet long was recently rebuilt, garnering the architect and masonry artisans an award from the Chestnut Hill Conservancy for the project. Situated just a short walk from both the shops, parks, and dining of ~the Avenue~ and the trails of the beautiful Wissahickon, everything you want is easily accessible. Just one block from Highland Station, getting to and from Center City is also as easy as it gets. This home is truly special, and not to be missed!**** Property is also known as 8325 Saint Martins Lane****
