Occupying an idyllic location on the edge of Pastorious Park in the heart of Chestnut Hill, this charming, light-filled 5-bedroom farmhouse with its jaw-dropping timber-frame addition has to be seen to be believed. A home like this does not come on the market often. This location offers the best of both worlds: a peaceful quiet setting, while also being supremely walkable to everything you need. Stroll to the "Avenue" for grocery shopping at the Co-op or the Fresh Market, grab dinner at one of the many excellent nearby cafes and restaurants, or go shopping at one the many lovely boutique and home shops. Listen from your inviting front porch to the summer concerts at Pastorius Park, walk to the train for your morning commute and retreat within minutes to hike in the Wissahickon. The design also offers the best of old home charm with new home amenities. The renovated first floor boasts a spacious and open great room with stunning exposed beams, wood-burning fireplace, custom built-ins and hardwood floors. The sizable chef's kitchen is highlighted by a 6-burner gas stovetop, granite counters, large island and stainless steel appliances. A powder room with a pottery sink and black-walnut shelving, a study, and a living room complete the first floor. The French doors that lead to a sunny dining room coupled with a newly built-in bar with black leathered granite makes this a perfect home for entertaining. The second floor has a loft master bedroom with walk-in closet and full bath. There are two more bedrooms and a newly renovated full bath in the central hall. The third floor has two more bedrooms. Plus, there is a finished basement playroom with storage. Additional amenities include a very functional mudroom leading to the driveway, parking for 2 cars, ceiling fans both inside and out, and a wrap-around porch that leads to a spacious backyard - great for parties, BBQs, playsets and sports. The shed stores your bicycles and yard equipment. Plumbing, electrical, heat and hot water have all been upgraded and the basement is dry. Schedule your appointment today. A home like this is a rare find and must be seen in person to be fully appreciated!
