Entering through the custom designed front door of this fully updated and well-conceived converted carriage house is the first of many marvelous aspects of this home. The craftsmanship of the front door, designed by Atkins Millwork, is an indication of things to come. Lots of wood, exposed beams and a lodge/ arts and crafts design style set this home apart from any other property in the area. The kitchen, designed by Biff Bartron, is spectacular and extremely functional for the chef who will be both preparing the meal and entertaining guests. An expansive granite and walnut countertop is accented by custom, sustainable wood cabinets, a stone chimney, wood stove, stone backsplash plus Dacor and Sub Zero appliances. French doors from the kitchen and dining room open to a three season porch and patio with a built in Lynx BBQ. The large dining room allows for a table that comfortably seats 10 with expansion possibilities for many more. Note the beautiful cherry built-in cabinets by Paul Downes of Manayunk. The living room is a warm and comfortable space with exposed beams and subtle lighting. Also on the main floor is a powder room with updated Kohler fixtures, a mud room and a large den with a fireplace and adjoining patio. The livability of this home is reflected in the upstairs areas as much as the downstairs. The front stairs lead to three extremely large bedrooms with plentiful closets. The first bedroom was the master bedroom so it is large, light and convenient with an adjacent bathroom and huge storage areas. The middle bedroom, with its own deck and french doors is also larger than most standard bedrooms. The murals on the walls were custom painted by a local artist. They were inspired by the book, On the Day You Were Born, and will be painted to a neutral color if requested. The new master bedroom suite includes a warm and spacious bedroom accented by exposed beams, french doors and custom shutters. The his and hers custom closets are ingeniously connected with the laundry room. The master bathroom is spacious with top quality granite, wood and masonry, all in an arts and crafts style. The 3/4 acre fenced in lot is full of natural feeling landscape to provide privacy with minimal maintenance. The shredded tire mulch area is included but will be removed if requested. This home is a perfect combination of city living with plenty of space yet cozy with rustic elegance and contemporary updates.
