Property Description

At the corner of two lightly traveled side streets, you will find this delightful 3-story stucco Colonial, built in 1915. Tucked away from the crowds, yet within easy walking distance to everything that Elkins Park has to offer, this 2,600+ SF home is immaculate. A winding brick & bluestone pathway leads up to the front door, passing a huge Magnolia tree and other mature flowering shrubs. The covered entry provides protection from the elements & a custom, solid-wood storm door (that matches the storm doors on the 2 sets of French doors to the covered side porch) is a delightful touch. Enter the center hall, and there are two coat closets flanking the entry. A terra cotta tiled floor leads back to the door to the rear yard where you will
find the powder room (with radiant floor heating) and a large storage closet under the staircase. The full-depth living room has built-in storage cabinets, a gas fireplace and access to the porch. The dining room also has full-height, built-in china cabinets flanking the large picture window overlooking the front yard. The kitchen, which was renovated in 2004 has a pass-through window to the dining room, a 4-burner electric cooktop (placed within the most unique brick surround with a reclaimed timber mantel), a built-in wall oven & microwave, S/S dishwasher & beautiful bead board Shaker cabinets. One of the counters was lowered specifically for a baking station. Radiant floors heat this room! There is a very large walk-in pantry with a beverage counter, and another pantry closet utilizing the former rear staircase. On the landing, there is a bank of casement windows that provide a lovely view of the rear yard. On the 2nd floor, there are 2 guest bedrooms with over-sized closets and the full bath in the hall. The master suite on this floor has two large closets with custom closet organizers, a lovely sitting room & the master bathroom (which was renovated in 2009). On the 3rd floor, you will find a sitting area over the central hallway (with a storage closet), a large family room/office and the 4th bedroom with those delightful ~-round windows and 2 closets. The rear yard is an oasis, with lovely perennial gardens, a large brick patio with a BBQ niche and a custom-built storage shed (with electric) on the rear of the 2-car garage. The garage also has a pull-down staircase to access the attic for additional storage. It is also located just 5 blocks away from CreekSide Coop and the E. P. train station & library.
