Charming and beautifully maintained stuccoed Cottage-style Residence designed by Architect L.V. Boyd in 1915 in the Heart of Historic Overbrook Farms!

Overbrook Farms is a Nationally Registered Historic District and a prime example of turn-of-the century railroad suburbs and is considered the beginning of Philadelphia's Main Line. Developed by Wendell & Smith in the1890s, it boasts a remarkable diversity of architectural styles by the best architects of the day (i.e. Horace Trumbauer, William & Walter Price, Charles Barton Keen, Milton Medary et al.) and is bordered by 147 lush acres of Fairmount Park's Morris Park. It is conveniently located between Center City and the Main-line with easy access to public transportation (i.e. Train, Trollies and buses) and major routes 1, 3, 30 & 76.
