Here it is! That wonderful West Mount Airy single near the Wissahickon that you've been waiting for has finally arrived! Yes, the one that so rarely comes on the market because owners of a home this special tend to stay put for a very long time! A Center Hall colonial made from Wissahickon Schist, it is situated right around the corner from the trails to the Wissahickon. When you are not enjoying your beautifully landscaped private outdoor space, you can spend time exploring the woods where you'll feel like you are a world away when in reality, you are a super quick (20-25 minute) commute via car or regional rail into Center City. Lovingly maintained and updated over the years, this home is the perfect size with 6 spacious bedrooms plus family room, 3 full and 2 half bathrooms and a finished basement. The carriage house beyond the driveway and yard has 2-car parking and an unfinished space just above that is outfitted with electricity and water service and could be transformed by the next owner into a lovely au pair or guest suite or home office. Inside the home, the grand center foyer offers a dramatic welcome with high ceilings and gorgeous hardwood floors that continue throughout the home. To the right is a spacious, sunny living room with wood burning fireplace and French doors that open onto a front patio. Original wooden pocket doors open onto a handsome, custom wood-paneled study with gorgeous built-ins and a hidden wet bar, just a few of the features that make this room a true classic from another era. A separate side entrance from this room allows guests into your professional home office without accessing the rest of the home. To the left of the center hall is an elegant formal dining room with a grand bay window and loads of light. Just beyond, the spacious kitchen features granite countertops and a center island with overhanging custom pot rack, extensive custom wood cabinetry and storage, and stainless steel appliances including a built-in Thermador gas grill, range, convection oven and microwave. A light-filled breakfast room made of stone with windows on three sides opens onto a large multi-level deck overlooking the backyard and driveway, while a convenient powder room completes the first floor. Ascend the center stairs to the wide second floor landing and hall. The impressive master suite features a spacious sitting area with elegant fireplace and mantel, huge custom walk-in closet with built-ins and center island, and large ensuite tiled bathroom with dual vanity, heated tile floor, separate soaking tub and stall shower. This floor is also home to another spacious bedroom, full hallway bathroom, and a bonus family room/den with a gas fireplace. This space opens onto a light filled sunroom/office, offering yet another perfect spot to work from home or create a cozy reading nook. The third floor has 4 additional bedrooms, one with a large walk-in closet and a full hall bath with original clawfoot tub. The finished basement features a large den or playroom, another half bath, a custom wine storage room, spacious laundry room, and plenty of storage. Just a short walk to Weavers Way Co-op, High Point Coffee, Carpenters Woods, and Regional Rail, and conveniently located to Chestnut Hill, Manayunk, and Center City Philadelphia, this wonderful, well-loved home in a fantastic neighborhood is one that you will not want to miss.
