This fabulous custom home stands tall on a magnificent oversized corner lot, proudly overlooking the Wissahickon Park. And proud it should be?beautifully restored inside and out, this home boasts one-of-a-kind design details and high-end finishes merged with original character throughout. Walk up to the covered front porch, take a deep breath and open the door. Take it all in?everything from the gleaming original hardwood floors, the soaring high ceilings, the dining area large enough to seat your entire crew, and the natural light streaming in from the abundant new windows. Next, the enormous kitchen, where it's all about the details: Carrara marble countertops, farmhouse sink, stainless steel appliances, under-cabinet lighting, and beveled mini-subway tile backsplash. On the other side of the breakfast bar is a wine bar and pantry area, and the entire room is tied together by barn siding wainscoting and antique beams. The washer and dryer are hidden in the back so you can cook dinner and do wash simultaneously (wasn't this always your dream??) And take another look at that powder room floor?are those pennies?!?! The back door leads to the side street?where there is easy parking, BTW?and your fenced-in rear yard. Next, head upstairs. There are three large light-filled bedrooms on the second floor, but the centerpiece is the full bath with soaking tub, subway tile surround, patterned cement floor tile, and reclaimed corrugated tin paneling?it just works! The third floor master suite overlooks the peaceful Wissahickon across the street; the master bath is an oasis itself with the giant glass-enclosed shower, double sink granite-top vanity, and a little exposed brick. In addition, there are his-and-hers closets (one is walk-in) for ample storage. The large full basement is dry, and has been freshly painted and sealed. Come check out every fabulous detail at the open house on Saturday 11/10, 11am-1pm!
