Come discover this wonderful 1930's stone Colonial tucked away on a quiet side street in Elkins Park. Situated on over 1 acre of elevated ground, the siting of the house provides for great privacy from the neighbors with numerous level areas for outdoor entertaining. There are subtle Art Deco touches throughout the home, including coved crown molding, inlaid wood floors, a curved main staircase & curved transom lighting in the dining room. Practically everything has been renovated within the past 10 years. You approach the front entry past the 2-car garage onto a large covered porch with wrought iron posts. You enter into a gathering room with one of the 2 wood burning fireplaces and the staircase. Tucked just off the entry is the renovated powder room & coat closet. Down several stairs is the living room with the 2nd fireplace, 10' ceilings and a large sliding glass door to the rear patio. This room has replacement, architectural series wood windows on the western wall. The dining room has another large sliding door to the same rear patio, more replacement windows overlooking the rear yard (recessed into the stone wall, providing for a deep windowsill). The entire kitchen & butler's pantry areas were completely renovated with custom cabinets, granite counters, a large island with 2nd sink, S/S appliances and a 36" gas stove. A pantry closet in the butler's pantry area provides for extra food storage. The laundry room is now located just off the kitchen with another door leading to the rear yard, and a "privy" room. As you ascend to the private quarters upstairs, there is a large hallway that accesses 4 of the 5 spacious bedrooms. The master suite has a fully renovated en-suite bath with a large glass shower including rainfall & body sprays. The tile work was done exceptionally well and in keeping with the period of the home. There is a long wall of closets (with custom built-ins) before you enter into the sleeping chamber that has windows on 3 sides. All of the bedrooms are spacious and have windows on multiple sides to provide great cross ventilation and light. The hall bathroom was also completely renovated with period details to respect the architecture of the home. The 5th bedroom is accessed via the rear staircase and has its own en-suite bathroom. This is a great space as an au-paire suite, for visiting guests/family or a home office. The entire heating system was converted from steam to forced hot water with a new high-efficiency boiler.
