Single Family Home

Extraordinary restoration of exceptional Chestnut Hill parkside property. This four bedroom, three full baths, two half baths single with garage, guest house, tennis court, and three-acre lot bordering Fairmount Park, has all you want in a city house with a country feel. Located on Rex Ave, one of Chestnut Hill's premier streets, puts you within walking distance of everything: commuter rails, shopping and entertainment on Germantown Avenue, and the wonder of nature in the largest in-city park in the country. Completely renovated by the present owners, every decision was made with the utmost taste and care. Transformed into a modern, beautifully appointed home, this property boasts versatile and abundant first floor living space that will wow you at every turn. The first floor consists of large formal living room with fireplace and built in book cases, a spacious family room with another fireplace and exceptional views outside, an elegant dining room, and the requisite kitchen for eating in and hanging out, complete with LaCornue range. The completely renovated guesthouse, with one bedroom and full bath, living room and kitchen, offers additional living space for many uses. The recent renovation was an unqualified labor of love. The stately, circa 1920, home sits above terraced grounds with bluestone patios, dry laid stone walls, walkways throughout the property, and mature landscaping that has been restored as well. This rare Chestnut Hill property provides all that today's buyer wants without any superfluousness. It is a must see!
