    Description

    Metropolitan Playground! From London and New York to Montreal, today's Philly dwellings serve as chic refuges for gusty individualism. This wonderful Stone Gothic Victorian gem built in approximately 1856 by Joseph Mitchell has been ardently restored, and you can see the 19th-century architectural elements abound! Original moldings, marble throughout (fireplaces, floors, staircases, sills), and hardwood floors complete this manor. Anyone who cooks will love the Kitchen as designed by the owner. It offers the ultimate in gourmet convenience, with stainless appliances, a sub-zero freezer, making the kitchen a cook's dream! State-of-the-art mechanics include natural gas hot-water heat, 2-zoned Central Air, Lennox HVAC and original appurtenances to the house (shutters, doors) included in the basement. This magnificent home extends out to the secluded terrace and gardens, perfect for casual or formal entertaining. This property is conveniently located just minutes from Center City and easily accessible to New York and Washington, DC. A true hidden treasure on almost 1/2 acre in the Tulpehocken Historic District! On Philadelphia's List of Historic Places in the Tulpehocken Station Historic District, it is truly one of Germantown's most distinctive historic properties: outstanding stonework, slate roof, Queen Ann mullioned windows, gingerbread exterior trim/brackets, crenelated tower. The interior was fully updated and designed by an interior decorator family member, including interior shutters, exquisite crown molding, 3 fireplaces, ceiling medallions, and museum quality architectural detail. NEW Kitchen and Baths completed in 2020. Other amenities include an open front porch, a rear enclosed porch, a rear open patio, a 2-car garage w/electric door opener. It+GGs a corner property with abundant gardens, grass, and a play area made private by high perimeter hedges. Located in the premier section of West-Central Germantown, it is close to bus and commuter train. You will adore the rest of the house with its European style/feel and open floor plan. Five plus bedrooms, four full baths, all updated systems, designer colors. Will you be the next steward of your own museum? This is an absolute gem of a property with amazing stewardship, great architectural detail and a fantastic outside property. The idea was to make the space approachable but artful, using a mix of eras and aesthetics.
