315 Maple Avenue

Wyncote, PA 19095

This stately 3-story Victorian was constructed in 1895 for Edward Deitrick when what is now known as Wyncote was established for "summer residences" of wealthy Philadelphia families. Fernbrook, Maple and Woodland Avenues were the first three streets platted in the neighborhood shortly after the railroad lines were first laid. They retain an amazing array of 19th century architecture and are protected by the Wyncote Board of Historic & Architectural Review. Perfectly located just off Greenwood Avenue, it's a simple 5 minute walk to the Wyncote/Jenkintown SEPTA station (the best service to downtown Philadelphia & a direct line to the airport). So many original details remain within this home, including the detailed gingerbread trim on the front & rear porches to the cedar shake & lap siding. The property has a 2-car garage tucked down the end of a gravel drive, a large & deep rear yard that affords wonderful space for play, gardening or your 4-legged friends. Step up onto the porch & step back in time. The gingerbread screened doors provide a lovely welcoming entrance to the large entry foyer with original built-in benches & a newel post & banister. The formal living room faces the front porch, while a larger "family" parlor that has a 3-sided bay window with built-in bench seats is a great gathering space for more informal events. Even the rods between the rooms remain for the red velvet curtains. The dining room has yet another 3-sided bay window and what appears to be a former gas light fixture over the dining table. Tucked between the D.R. and the kitchen is the powder room. The vintage 1950's kitchen is back in vogue with its pink laminate counters & backsplash and quality solid wood cabinets. There is a large walk-in pantry for additional storage & direct access to the rear porch. Upstairs on the 2nd floor are 3 huge bedrooms & a hall bathroom. On the 3rd floor, there is a delightful hall bathroom (the size of a bedroom) with a clawfoot tub and an original marble sink. There are 2 additional rooms on this floor, we counted only 1 as a bedroom (the largest of all 4 bedrooms) as the other room does not have a closet. Even the landings on each floor (2nd & 3rd) are large enough to afford desks or great reading nooks for a wingback chair. The house is enhanced with central A/C and 200 AMP electric service. Come discover 315 Maple Avenue and a simpler way of life, where neighbors look out for each other!
