Property Description

This stately jewel of a home is truly the queen of the block. Located in the historic Wynnefield section (since 1689-90) of West Philadelphia, this Tudor home is estimated to have been built between 1913-19 and is said to have been the residence of the famed Reisman pretzel family. Most recently owned by acclaimed dean Dr. Louise Shoemaker of the University of Pennsylvania, the home features elaborate, original ironwork throughout in the style of master blacksmith Samuel Yellin. The ironwork includes the entry rail, entry door hardware, lantern, window coverings, interior stair rail and four interior chandeliers. Enter into a gracious foyer. To the left are a great room with commanding stone fireplace and library/solarium. Majestic stained
glass windows open all around. A den, dining room and eat-in-kitchen complete this level. The second level boasts a master bedroom with stone fireplace, master bath and bonus room (dressing room, office, sitting room, walk-in closet). Two more bedrooms and a hall bath. Fourth bedroom has two entrances and could be upstairs den/library. Servant/in-law quarters are at rear of home; back stairs to kitchen. Third level could be a bedroom; radiators will have to be replaced. A two-car garage, full basement and good-size yard/driveway complete this property. This home, while still grand, is in need of a loving restoration. Will yours be the next generation to grace its halls? Conveniently located near the Wynnefield Avenue train station (SEPTA R5), Bala Golf Club, City Line Avenue (Route 1), Fairmount Park, the Mann Center for the Performing Arts, the Philadelphia Zoo and the Main Line.
