You will find old world charm and modern convenience in this quintessential Chestnut Hill Carriage House! The Philadelphia Building Permits associated with the property tell the story of one of Chestnut Hill's early adaptive use projects! The 1905 carriage house was converted to a single-family residence in 1925. A 1966 addition added the large family room with a picture window to the garden. Original 1905 details abound including, exposed ceiling beams, original carriage house doors, hayloft door... and boom on street facade, and interior plaster on Wissahickon schist walls. The kitchen has been enlarged and upgraded to meet a gourmet's high standards with timeless materials including honed granite, stainless appliances, and cabinets reaching to the ceiling! Upstairs find three bedrooms with exposed beams and vaulted ceilings, two updated bathrooms and lots of closets. There is a lovely fenced-in private backyard with covered brick patio, bluestone hardscape, landscape lighting and a manageable lawn surrounded by mature hydrangeas, ferns, and other indigenous plants. Also included is a detached, one-car garage at the end of the three-car driveway. This fantastic property is mechanically sound with high-efficiency gas fired boiler and sleek Runtal radiators. All roofs were replaced in 2015, and the current owners have made various other improvements since then, including, replaced all perimeter redwood fencing and gate, replaced existing exterior door with glazed door, replaced all storm windows, painted house and garage exteriors, and more. This Chestnut Hill treasure is situated in the perfect location, only blocks to both the CH East and CH West regional rail line stations, and the heart of Chestnut Hill's "village", Germantown Avenue's shops and restaurants. You will not see another home like this one! Schedule an appointment today!
