Property Description

Magnificent Mount Airy makeover. One of the "Three Sisters," (a set of three large homes, built by the Strawbridges, in the 1880's to 90's), this beautiful Queen Anne Victorian has been meticulously restored, improved, and enhanced inside and out. This vintage beauty has been transformed into a state-of-art smart home. Heat emanates through hardwood floors and 10 zones of radiant hot water from the 1st to the 3rd floor. The air conditioning system is equally efficient, and all HVAC can be controlled remotely, as can the lighting and security systems. The smart house options are readily customized to fit the homeowner's particular needs. The level of restoration and finish in the kitchen, baths and living space are top notch .
Significant changes on the first floor include opening the space, by eliminating the center hallway to allow sight lines from the living room to dining room to kitchen. Custom kitchen features a Wolf 6-burner gas stove, double ovens, SubZero fridge and supersized island. Whole house sound system can be controlled from kitchen and most other rooms. The four main rooms on the first floor include a media room. The main level also has a spacious foyer, turned, open staircase, and spacious mudroom. The second floor includes the master wing with its own bath, dressing room with multiple closets and built-ins, and blue-tiled fireplace. The room at the top of the stairs now serves as the owner's study, but would make a beautiful bedroom with double doors, two closets and its own fireplace. Finishing off the second floor is an elegant hall bath, an office, and laundry. The third floor has a bathroom that makes everyone say "WOW". There are also 3 more fabulous bedrooms, one used as an exercise room at present. The smart-house options are readily customized to fit the buyer's particular needs. The exterior has been beautifully restored with full respect for its architectural integrity. The outdoor kitchen and dining area have been beautifully integrated. The gardens flourish with hardy perennials. You will have to wait a long time before you see, again, a property so painstakingly restored. Location is ideal for walking to Weaver's Way Coop, Upsal Train Station, houses of worship, and Fairmount Park.
