This custom open concept addition is the heart of the home, and features slate flooring, vaulted ceilings, black granite countertops and custom cherry wood cabinetry. Large kitchen island offers seating to keep the cook company! Stainless appliances, two sinks w/disposals and recessed and under cabinet lighting, and tech lights. The living area of the Great Room is fabulous for entertaining, or kicking back and watching your favorite Netflix series! French doors lead you to the patio, perfectly positioned for enjoying the beautiful greenery. The spacious Formal Living Room is home to gas burning fireplace with antique wood surround. A beautifully updated Powder Room and spacious 1st floor Laundry Room/Bonus Room complete the main floor. Ascending the grand staircase, the 2nd floor landing shines courtesy of a bright window. The Master Bedroom shows custom hand silkscreen William Morris wallpaper and large windows. The oversized ensuite Master Bathroom & Dressing Room has been completely remodeled with finished hardwood floors, large seamless glass shower with multiple jetted shower heads, double sinks w granite topped vanities, and a separate water closet. The dressing area has large custom closets...this space has it all! The 2nd Bedroom is spacious with lots of windows. The 3rd Bedroom is very bright and open (now used as an office/craft room). Completing the 2nd floor is the extremely spacious Hall Bathroom with beautiful tile, pedestal sink and a shower/tub with glass door and rainfall shower head. The 3rd floor has 2 more generously sized bedrooms, each with their own character. The 4th Bedroom has a walk-in closet and is simply marvel-ous! The 5th Bedroom features its own dressing area/office and a massive walk-in closet. The 3rd Full Bathroom is oversized, has shower/tub with beautiful marble tiled details. The attic is accessible via pull down stairs in the hallway. The owners have made extensive renovations over the last 6 years, evident in the quality upgrades throughout. There are 2 newer HVAC zones (installed 2007 and 2012), newer hot water heater (installed 2015) and hardwired smoke and carbon monoxide detectors throughout. The exterior of the house is just as special as the interior, with its custom historic paint palette designed by noted consultant Robert Schweitzer of Historic House Colors in Ann Arbor, Michigan. The fully fenced backyard is a delight, with privacy provided by natural greenery and pretty flower beds. First and second floor windows have been replaced. Detached garage (being sold as-is). Walking distance to the Elkins Park & Melrose Park train stations, the downtown Elkins Park restaurants, coffee shops and stores. Call us today to schedule your private showing or forever miss this very special place to call home!
