    Description

    1877 Germantown classic Victorian architecture made even more beautiful by thoughtful upgrades. Today, this exquisite 3-story stone and stucco detached home shows off handsome interior shutters, original crown moldings, high ceilings, random width pumpkin-pine floors, and over-size sunlit windows. At the same time, it has upgraded heating and cooling systems, improved plumbing, very modern and cost saving gas stoves, and a terrific 2014 cook's kitchen to warm the heart of any serious home chef. Here's the floor plan: First floor: Open front porch; original double doors lead into central hallway; powder room (unheated); Simply lovely living room naturally lit by floor to ceiling windows, graced by carved marble mantel, crown moldings, and don't miss the gas wood stove that adds comfortable heat; Formal dining room with gas stove, crown moldings, storage closet; Library with wood-burning fireplace and multiple built in book shelves. The color of the walls in the Library is the same as the color of the Peacock Room in the Freer Gallery of Art in the Smithsonian Institute, a room designed by James McNeill Whistler; 2014 fully renovated cook's eat-in kitchen with cherry floors and cabinetry, abundance of polished granite counter, gas 5 burner Samsung stove and gas convection oven with two doors, built in GE Profile microwave, stainless steel sink with garbage disposal, stainless steel Bosch dishwasher, and brand new Frigidaire refrigerator/freezer. Sliding glass doors open onto a broad sunny deck that leads to 1) a cleverly designed basketball court, and 2) lush colorful gardens fenced in such a way that the gardens are protected from the dog run on the perimeter of the property. A custom shed sits in the corner of the garden space. 2nd floor: 3 sizeable bedrooms, each with its own closet; Hall full bath with shower over tub, ceramic tile, linen closet; Small room with wall of built-ins for storage and used by the current owners as an exercise room; Huge walk-in hall closet. Third floor: 4 more bedrooms and full bath with shower over a large soaking tub. The walls in this bathroom are concrete scored to look like ceramic tile! Basement: full, unfinished, with Bilco door exit, high ceilinged, for utilities, workbench, storage, and laundry with washer and electric dryer. Heat: a clever combination of gas hot air furnace, gas stoves, mini-splits. Cooling: a first floor high velocity central system and mini-splits and window air conditioners upstairs. (See Sellers' description of HVAC systems.) 200 AMP electric panel with circuit breakers. Slate mansard with membrane roof above. Exterior painted one year ago. Ring alert system at doorbell. 114 West Coulter Street is proudly listed as historic on the Philadelphia Register of Historic Properties. It is centrally located in the historic Penn-Knox neighborhood of Germantown, a neighborhood filled with architecturally prominent homes and a popular residential enclave close to a variety of schools, places of worship, significant historic sites. Public transit (bus and commuter train) is close by and the Wissahickon Creek with all its recreational resources is an easy hike to the west. Easy to show. Quick settlement possible. One last thing! There is a secret passage in this house that takes one from the first to second floor. Don't miss it!
