  • Description

    Not often does a home so special, so historically intact, become available. "Saint Martins" was designed by Hazelhurst & Huckel and built in 1890 by William Steele in the Richardsonian Romanesque style out of local Wissahickon schist. Strong, elegant and grand - this home astounds you at every turn. Its quarter-sawn oak walls and intricate millwork have never been painted. Its hardwood floors are pristine, having just been restored. The six unique fireplaces, the leaded and stained glass windows, cove ceilings and plaster mouldings are seldom found in this beautiful condition. The main level welcomes you with formal living and dining rooms, a well-appointed kitchen, mudroom, powder room and a large office/library. The second level has a large master suite, with a generous en suite bath and dressing room. Two additional bedrooms, a bath and the laundry room complete the floor. The third level, originally a separate apartment, has 2-3 additional bedrooms, a bath and a retro kitchen awaiting your interpretation. The exterior is a work of art - Vermont Slate hipped roof, a corner turret, a porte cochere, covered porch, battlements and a flagstone terrace. The land itself requires minimal care and is situated so conveniently: easy access to Center City, Blue Route, Turnpike and 309, a few short steps to the train station and walking distance to everything Chestnut Hill has to offer.
