Single Family Home

The architectural integrity of this estate charms you into another era. Lovingly and painstakingly restored by the current owner, this iconic Victorian will have you talking. Every room is grand and inviting. Each of the seven fireplaces has a unique carved mantel and is fully restored. Every system has been updated, and the essentials of the 21st century are met with style and care. The first floor consists of light filled living room with spectacular windows, paneling, fire place, and coffered, carved ceiling. The dining room could hold a state dinner. The back end of the house has the requisite cook's kitchen with high-end appliances, and the necessary adjacent family room for weekday evenings together. There are many exterior doors on the first level to make outside entertaining a breeze. There are seven family and guest bedrooms upstairs, as well as a billiard room, and upstairs sitting room. Four large sunny full bathrooms, bountiful closets, and chute to the main floor laundry room keep all the necessities of life under control. The central air and heating systems have five convenient zones to make for the most efficient energy. All updated in 2007. The detached carriage is a marvelous garden folly that would make a practical and spacious garage. In every architectural survey book of Philadelphia, you will find this stunning Victorian lady.
