You have got to come walk through this one! Built in 1888 by architect Theophilus P. Chandler, the founding head of the Dept. of Architecture at UPenn, this eclectic-style house is considered significant in the Chestnut Hill National Register Historic District. The property epitomizes the grand stone houses in Chestnut Hill. Recently restored and renovated, this Victorian gem is ready for modern living. Easy walk to the train station and Germantown Ave for shopping, dining, and strolling; there is also an exceptionally large yard for entertaining, play, and gardening. The house delivers everything you want in the Chestnut Hill Garden District. Just completed renovations include new kitchen and baths, new HVAC and electric, fresh paint and refinished floors, restored wrought-iron railing and sparkling basement. What remains unchanged are the extraordinary light-filled spaces, high-ceilinged rooms with carved fireplaces, intricate trim work, period light fixtures, stained glass windows, panel woodwork, and architectural details that surprise and delight on every floor. Walk up the front pathway from East Gravers Lane to the front patio. The front door is part of the two story turret situated at one corner of the house and leads you to a spacious front hall, lined with wood paneling, charming curved window seats matching the curved windows, and containing a fireplace, turned staircase, and under-the-staircase coat closet. To the left are the living room and adjoining dining room, both with their own fireplaces. There are two sets of pocket doors (from living room to foyer and dining room) for privacy when necessary. The large kitchen with new design, finishes, and appliances will become the hub of the house with its over-sized island and adjacent over-sized mudroom with first floor powder room. The second floor has master suite which speaks to the renovator's creativity and vision in transforming an 1888 house into a 21st century house with the requisite large closet and master bath. Just as the first architect created a gem, the recent design team added to the architectural interest of the house. The second floor has two more large bedrooms, a hall bath, and laundry room. The third floor has four more bedrooms and another bath. The house and lot are protected by easements held by the Chestnut Hill Historical Society. The easements allow for alterations, including the construction of garage, porch reconstruction, and fencing.
