This gorgeous, classic Chestnut Hill twin home on a wonderfully-located corner lot awaits its fortuitous next owner! Youâre just in time to enjoy the beautifully-landscaped fenced-in back yard oasis. The home is move-in ready with bright natural light due to its excellent southern exposure. Located at the Top of the Hill, youâre literally just a short walk to âThe Avenueâ with its fantastic array of restaurants, bars, breweries, bakeries, gourmet food stores and specialty shops. As you ascend the brick steps from Rex Avenue, you will admire the beautiful Wissahickon schist stone exterior. Enter into the former covered stone porch, now an enclosed beautiful bright room with convenient coat closet, that can serve as a family room, an office or your library. Step into the large, elegant Living Room which features a magnificent marble-surround wood-burning fireplace with Georgian-style mantel and lovely inlaid hardwood floors. The Living Room flows gracefully into the spacious formal Dining Room with abundant natural light. Adjacent is the efficient and renovated Kitchen that features a convenient breakfast bar, ample cabinets, granite counters, gas cooking and stainless appliances. A few years ago, the owner smartly added a powder room on the first floor. The beautiful and bright natural light enhances the lovely and elegant features of this charming home, including the elegant winder staircase which guides you to three spacious, light-filled bedrooms, all with hardwood inlaid floors. The main/front bedroom features a fabulous dressing area, accessed through charming French doors, which could be used as a nursery, office or sitting area. The full hall bath features ceramic tile and a combination tub/shower. Returning downstairs, the door from the Kitchen beckons you to the gorgeous herringbone-patterned brick patio in the fenced-in and gated yard with spring bulbs, flowering perennials and lush greenery. Itâs a wonderful and relaxing entertaining spot to enjoy morning coffee or an evening glass of wine. Thereâs just enough privacy here, but not too much that you youâll miss seeing your neighbors stroll by. A full, unfinished basement provides plenty of storage and outside access to the back yard. The location could not be better for the perfect blend of urban and suburban. With a Walk Score of 90, youâll appreciate how close you are to local favorites like, The Fresh Market and Weaverâs Way, Woodmere Art Museum, the seasonal Chestnut Hill festivals, and all the incredible specialty shops along Germantown Avenue in Chestnut Hill. You can also walk to the Chestnut Hill West or Chestnut Hill East SEPTA Regional Rail Lines making it a quick trip into Center City Philadelphia. Youâre close to Rt. 309 and the PA Turnpike as well.
