Built before 1782 and known as the John Huston House in the Chestnut Hill Historic District of the National Register of Historic Places and The Philadelphia Register of Historic Places, this 2 1/2 story stone Colonial features five bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms. An addition was added around 1955 and done to match the original home closely. You will be amazed at the excellent condition this home is in! Meticulously maintained to reflect its rich history, it is solid and well built with 18th-century wide plank floors, wide window sills, original fireplaces, and a walk-in fireplace in the breakfast room. Upgrades include an updated kitchen with upscale appliances, a new water heater (2019), newer HVAC (2014), and a newer roof on the main house (2017). The home also features a sunny Dining Room with original floors and plenty of room for gathering family and friends. A large, spacious formal Living Room with built-ins, two doors to access the outside grounds, and a working fireplace, it's the perfect place to cozy up and read a good book or enjoy a nightcap by the fire. A second smaller living room will be great as an informal family room. The stairs lead you up to a nice-sized sitting area with a wood stove, two bedrooms, one with built-ins, and a full bathroom on one side, and a generously sized Primary Suite, Primary Bath, and walk-in closet on the other side. Continue up the stairs to view the two additional bedrooms and a full bathroom, which would be perfect for guests! The original annexed kitchen and barn still stand on the property and can be used for additional storage. The porch provides a shady place to sit and enjoy over a half-acre of greenery. 125 E Bells Mill Rd is conveniently located close to major traffic routes, public transportation, the shops and restaurants of Chestnut Hill, Whole Foods, and several shopping malls. It is a must-see!
