    • Description

      This Wonderful historical home with 4 bedrooms and 1.5 baths is located on an incredible, flat .95 acre lot within an easy walk of schools, shopping, and transportation. Nestled behind a thick privet hedge and evergreens for maximum privacy, it has a bright interior with large windows that have deep sills and rooms with high ceilings. It has wood floors throughout. Except for the dining room which has hardwood over the original pine floor, all the flooring is original. Built in circa 1853, this home was purchased by the current owners directly from the Levering family. It originally belonged to a small neighborhood termed Academyville and consisted of residences and buildings constructed around the Lower Merion Academy located right across the street from the residence. John Levering and his son, Clifford, were headmasters of the Academy. The house is of Italianate architecture with its distinctive three bay fa~ade and front porch with exceptionally fine decorative cutout wood supports. The front door opens to a parlor, a central feature of a period home. The kitchen occupies the one and a half story rear wing, once the pump shed, giving the first floor a very convenient and workable floor plan. As it is, this home is gracious and charming. It also has great possibilities for expansion and/or updating. This very special property is conveniently located to some of the best public and private schools in the country, near major rail and highway transportation routes and public transportation. It is a must see!
