Welcome to the Annhaven Carriage House! In 1901, J.C. Wyman (a successful restauranteur in Reading Terminal Market) purchased 1.5 acres on a "new country lane" in Wyncote. He constructed a large Arts & Crafts house along with a carriage house & stable. He named the property "Annhaven" for his wife. When this property was sub-divided, the placement of this house at the street allowed for an exceptionally large & deep rear yard. Many of the original architectural elements of its former life remain within this eclectic & artistic house. These include the Dutch door at the street, the bead board walls, the original horse stall windows (now in the kitchen & dining room) & the original feed chute from the former hay loft. The first floor now has a great open-plan lay-out with sightlines from the living, dining & kitchen areas. Board & Batten wainscoting was added to the lower walls in the kitchen & dining room. A large laundry room & pantry are tucked at the rear of the first floor with a powder room conveniently located between the 3 rooms. A spacious mudroom with walls of windows overlooking the rear yard was added to the rear of the home. There is also a detached stone garden shed just off the rear flagstone patio. The master suite faces East (with a huge window where the hayloft doors used to be located) and has two very large closets tucked into the Southern wall under the roof eaves. The master bathroom has a separate tub & shower. There is an open loft-family area (great for TV or reading) at the top of the steps. The hall bathroom has a tub-shower combination and looks out over the rear lawn. A linen closet is just outside the 2 large bedrooms that both have ample closet space. There is also storage in the eaves of various roof lines. Out back, a "Tree Deck" has been constructed in one corner of the yard and there are numerous flowering trees and shrubs as you walk towards the far end of the property. The house is exceptionally efficient with 3-zones for heating (including radiant floor heating in the kitchen/dining area) and central A/C. Crescent Road was laid out for development in 1897 and has a varied mixture of architecture from Victorian to mid-century modern. There is absolutely no through traffic on this street, yet it is located only 4 blocks from the Jenkintown/Wyncote SEPTA station (with the best scheduled service to Philly, Temple, Penn and even the airport).
