PLEASE NOTE: The seller believes listed square footage does not include the recent addition so the home is larger than indicated. Introducing a lovingly maintained, classic Chestnut Hill colonial in the welcoming W Abington Avenue community. This 1920s home sits nestled between Germantown Avenue and the popular Pastorius Park where locals enjoy the greenery and pond, chat with neighbors and gather for summer concerts. Its prime location is within walking distance of shops, restaurants, Fairmount Park, supermarkets and SEPTA regional rail stations with access to Center City. You’ll love the curb appeal of this brick-front home with the raised front garden and charming front porch with a comfy porch swing where you can, as the owners often have, spend many evenings relaxing. The rest of the exterior was updated with new stucco in 2020. As you enter the home, your eyes will be drawn to lovely architectural details including the beautifully restored, original hardwood floors complemented by the classic high baseboards which are seen throughout much of the house. The living room offers a view of the front garden and porch with a side window providing additional light. A wide archway leads you to the formal dining room which is made all the more spacious and bright by lovely bay windows. A quaint pocket door leads you to the oversized and updated eat-in kitchen which, with the adjacent sitting room, provides a single large, open living space. Your eyes will be drawn to the view of the patio and yard through the double Anderson French doors at the rear of the space, like having a bit of the outdoors right there! The kitchen was remodeled three years ago creating a pocket space for the very large high-end, stainless steel refrigerator/freezer, additional cabinet space, new Bosch dishwasher and wall oven plus a top of the line Bertazoni cooktop and new granite counters. An island which houses the dishwasher and stainless sink divides with cooking space from a large open area suitable for a large kitchen table. An original built in wooden hutch with serving counter sets the style and tone for the additional cabinets in the room. The sitting room is a comfy area made the more spacious by the vaulted ceiling and is perfect for entertaining or use as a family room. It has cable TV hookup and built-in speakers and an adjacent full-bathroom with tile shower. The two rooms have radiant floor heating. The French doors bring the inside and outside, opening onto an ample paver patio with a view of the landscaped, level, private, fenced yard, a peaceful haven! A modern shed at the rear of the yard provides plenty of storage without being too obtrusive. Three upstairs bedrooms offer the same beautiful wood floors and wide baseboards as downstairs and offer plenty of light through the newer windows. All have ceiling fans. The roomy updated bathroom retains the classic claw-foot tub/shower and offers plenty of storage. The current owner has taken great care of this home for over 22 years. Upgrades include: Anderson windows through the first floor 6 years ago, top-of-the line Pella windows installed 5 years ago throughout the second floor except for one window. Beautiful new exterior stucco in 2020. HVAC installed 5 years ago with reconfigured ductwork to improve distribution. Replaced porch columns, posts and rails 7 years ago. Hot water heater replaced 2020. Roof recoated and inspected 2 years ago (owner has receipts for warranty on the materials). Buyer "love letters" will not be presented.
