Property Description

COUNTRY LIVING IN THE CITY. Pastoral property with a spectacular view of the back yard woods provides the footprint for this spacious 5 Bedroom Center Hall Colonial on wide street in upper Roxborough. Just under a half acre of grounds surrounds this stately stone single with charming front porch, side entrance, and vintage charm. Welcoming center hall is flanked by gracious Living Room with wood burning stove, deep window sills, French Doors to porch. Dining Room is roomy enough for large gatherings and has French Doors leading to cozy sun porch with exposed stone walls. Kitchen has just been redone and boasts white cabinets, butcher block counters, overhead fan and gleaming hardwood floors. Kitchen leads to handy mudroom with matching
cabinets and counters and washer/dryer. Back stairs from kitchen allows the cook to escape to the second floor without interrupting guests. Beautifully turned main stairwell leads to 2nd floor landing where sunlight pours through custom stain glass windows. Three good sized bedrooms plus family room with stone fireplace and recently upgraded full bath are found on the second floor. Third floor houses 2 additional very roomy bedrooms with large storage closets. Vanity sink was installed in one of the third floor bedrooms which is terrific for a family member or to use as an artist studio. New roof, hardwood flooring throughout all three floors, fabulous sunlight everywhere in this home. Wonderful rear yard can accommodate ball games, gardening, and even weddings. Walk to business district of Roxborough, minutes from public transportation, grocery stores, fitness center, drugstore, and much more. Current owners are only the fourth family to live in this home built by Dr John Courtney Nedwill, a Philadelphia dentist, in 1927. At that time the rear yard area was considered a "gentleman's farm" where chickens were raised and fruit trees were plentiful. Wonderful home, wonderful history, lots of love!
