This gracious stone colonial revival is located in the distinguished Overbrook Farms neighborhood of Philadelphia on the National Historic Register. Famed architect, Frank Seeburger, chief designer for Horace Trumbauer, built the spacious, 3-story home in 1925. This home has many original details and craftsman features, including high ceilings, wood floors, crown molding, brick and stone fireplaces, and claw-foot bathtub. The first floor boasts a spacious center entrance hall with powder room and coat closet. From the entrance hall, enter the spacious living room and through a pair of French doors, enter an enormous, light-filled enclosed porch with running 15ft windows and 3-light transoms, opening outside to the backyard. Opposite the living room, admire the formal dining room with large bay window and built-in china cabinets. A butler's pantry is directly off the dining room and provides ample room for storage. The eat-in kitchen has hard-wearing Armstrong flooring, wood cabinetry, gas cooking and the ability to expand the space into an adjacent mudroom, which exits to the outside. You will also find a laundry room off the kitchen and a back stairwell. The second floor features 4 large bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms. The master suite has an adjoining bathroom and an enclosed sunporch, perfectly suited for a private office or sitting room. The 3rd floor features 3 additional bedrooms (one used as a large playroom) and a large storage room with natural light, which could be an 8th bedroom. (There are hardwoods under the carpets and rugs for those buyers who prefer.) The home has an insulated attic and full, unfinished basement suitable for storage. Outside you will find a detached 2-car garage with new automated door and a private driveway. You will enjoy the well maintained lawn and garden from the private brick patio, surrounded by blooming flowerbeds of annuals and perennials. This home is located on a quiet street and is an easy walk to Morris Park and close to nearby schools (Friends Central, Talmudical Yeshiva, Waldron Mercy). It is also ideally located for those looking for an easy commute to center city as it is close to public transportation (regional rail, bus & trolley). This home falls within Penn's Home Ownership Services area.
