Single Family Home

This stunning Dutch Colonial Revival home in the National Historic District of Overbrook Farms was custom built in 1906 for the Fleer family; the inventors of bubble gum. Wait until you see the AMAZING interior?unlike any other home you've seen. The interior is a combination of Arts & Crafts elements with Moorish archways dominating the first floor. You enter the home through a fully glassed-in front porch, and are welcomed in the living room with a huge fireplace. Oak wainscoting on the first and second floors have been restored to their former glory. The gourmet cook's kitchen is completely remodeled and includes a six-burner Viking range, beverage center, French door Profile refrigerator, double ovens, and large farmhouse sink. The second floor is designed as an open sitting room and library with fireplace. The master bedroom with ensuite boasts one of two claw foot tubs in the home. Another renovated bathroom completes the second floor with wood wainscoting from the pews of an old church. On the third floor there are 4 more bedrooms, a full bathroom, and a large closet area (formerly the servant's quarters.) The floors throughout the home are a combination of oak and red pine. A back stairwell extends from the first floor up to the third floor. Wait until you see the amazing 2-story loft addition! The maple floors were a creative re-use from a basketball court, and the artist-designed banister was inspired by the winter treescape of Overbrook Farms. The hemlock half timbers were hand made and installed by a craftsman who had done similar work on Edinburgh Castle in Scotland. A large wood stove will keep you cozy all winter long. There is a 2-story, 2-car garage. Unique and original features of the home include a beautiful stone exterior, a lion head knocker, chandeliers, hardwood floors, and many leaded/stained glass windows. Steam boiler replaced in 2014 with large efficient unit. Central Air! Overbrook Farms maintains the oldest continually operating neighborhood association in the United States, the Overbrook Farms Club (OFC). This home has been featured on the Overbrook Farms House Tour and in the Philadelphia Inquirer. See https://vimeo dot com/160571187 for video of home.
