This is a wonderful house! Built of brick and stone, built to last, to be comfortable, functional and light-filled all at the same time. Built at a time when builders had figured out the good sense of a master bedroom and master bathroom, of an eat-in kitchen, of a high ceilinged basement, of a built-in accessible oversized garage. 312 East Gorgas Lane has all that, and the owners in the last 15 years have only added thoughtful, high-quality upgrades: new real wood Marvin double-paned replacement windows, plantation shutters, a new bright kitchen with great counter space and stainless steel appliances, a spectacular and cleverly designed opening in the master bedroom ceiling that lets sunlight pour in, new in 2014 high-efficiency gas-fired hot water boiler and domestic hot water heater. 1 st floor: Enter the main door on the side of the house; living room with stone fireplace and exit to front porch; formal dining room with combo coat and cedar closet, china closet, chair rails and moldings; new kitchen in 2005 with cork floor, stainless steel appliances, gas cooking, counters of ICE stone (concrete and recycled glass), large refrigerator, plenty of space for both breakfast table and kitchen island if desired, door to side yard and patio. 2 nd floor: Master bedroom with knock-your-socks-off and architecturally distinct skylighted ceiling created in 2018 with remote-controlled shades, master bath with stall shower; full bath renovated in 2006-07 with the most exquisite tilework, pedestal sink, shower over tub, linen closet; two more bedrooms each with closets and ceiling fans. Basement: unfinished for utilities, laundry, work area and storage. The basement originally had a finished family room with stone fireplace and bar. The finishes can be restored if a new buyer wants more finished area in the lower level. Direct access to over-sized one car garage that offers lots of storage, too. High-efficiency gas-fired heat and hot water installed in 2014. 100 AMP CB electrical service. Utterly beautiful high-end Marvin double-paned replacement windows. Both the front slate and main flat roofs were replaced in 2010. The front porch roof was replaced with a standing seam metal roof in 2014. All brick walls re-pointed in 2013. Pretty front, side and rear gardens. Convenient location in easy walking distance to SEPTA commuter train and bus lines. Just move in and enjoy.
