Located on a picture-perfect block in East Mt. Airy, this wonderful brick Tudor style home with a Wissahickon schist faÃ§ade and arched walkway entrance is off the charts with enviable curb appeal. Upon entering the home, a bright, striking sunken living room featuring a classic stone fireplace welcomes you. Parquet floors accented with walnut inlay, original moldings/finishes and a dramatic coffered ceiling create a sought-after classic sense of style and elegance. The dining room is large with a chair railing and two companion closets: one large 'walk-in' used for coats and storage and the other, a large pantry. For entertaining flexibility, glass French doors allow the dining room to be open to the living room or remain separated. The kitchen is bright and efficient with white appliances and a new floor. An adjacent breakfast room, featuring original built-ins, is currently used as a sweet sitting room that gets flooded with sunshine through the wide sliding glass doors that access a broad deck. A wide carpeted stairway leads upstairs to four bedrooms, including a large primary bedroom with an en suite three-piece showered bathroom. Three other generous bedrooms accented with architectural details including arched entries and period moldings, a hall bathroom with sky light that opens, a large cedar hall closet and an original stained glass ceiling ornament complete the second floor. The basement is partially finished and perfect as an exercise room, home office, or family room. The basement also offers a powder room, a large unfinished room for utilities, storage and work area, and it offers interior access to the attached one car oversized garage. The yard is completely fenced in and beautiful. The garden blooms through three seasons with perennials and native plants and has been certified as an Audubon Bird Habitat. Unusual privacy is provided by the wooded area immediately behind the property. The home has a Ring doorbell and a hard wired security system with motion detector. Gas hot water heat. Gas-fired domestic hot water heater. 200 AMP circuit breaker service.
