In this spacious, Wissahickon schist, American classic-circa-1925 twin, the magic is in the details that draw you in; they tell a story of life greatly enjoyed here for the last 45 years. It features original planked oak flooring that is stunningly offset with black walnut inlays. Masterful architectural details can be found in doorways that have been raised up and squared off, lending an openness to the flow of the main living spaces. A large living room with a fireplace is bright and welcoming. Floor to ceiling slats of warm, 3D milled solid timber, as well as harmoniously built in cabinets make the formal dining room a real showplace. The sunny, cheerful, eat-in kitchen with a greenhouse window is a perfect place to enjoy a cup of coffee and conversation, or a casual meal. On the second floor are three generously sized bedrooms, all receiving ample natural light with lovely views of mature trees, including the master bedroom with en suite bath, as well as a hall bath where the original tile work has been preserved. The third floor was converted to a bedroom/living area with a full bath, which offers privacy for family or guests. In the lower level is another finished living area with a fireplace, as well as ample storage space, a half bath, and laundry facilities. The outside features green spaces on three sides with a fenced in rear yard where you can enjoy lots of opportunities for gardening, entertaining, etc. The private 2 car garage provides a rare opportunity for off-street parking, or if you choose, it would also make an excellent space for a workshop or artist's studio. Situated about a block from the Sedgwick train station, it is a quick ride into Center City, and walkable to Germantown Ave with tons of dining, shops, several yoga and wellness studios, the newly renovated Lovett Library, and the many community events that Mt. Airy has to offer!
