    Description

    Enchanting! Believed to date from the 1790's and built as the "Orchard Keeper's Cottage" with improvements and expansion in 1837 & 1880, this two story stucco property was once part of the historic Roxboro Estate that fronts on School House Lane. Situated on .38 acres on one of East Falls' most desirable blocks, this picturesque dwelling is in a quiet setting nestled far back from the road. For many years the house has been used as a primary residence; but, it would also make a perfect pied-a-terre for a buyer who desires an idyllic weekend retreat. Looking for a larger residence? The grounds afford potential for an addition if so desired. The current owner, an interior designer, has tastefully updated and meticulously maintained the property while keeping many of the details of a bygone era from the wide plank wood floors to the beautiful Gothic Revival windows. From the open front porch that serves as an ideal place for entertaining or just relaxing, you enter through an eight panel front door that appears to have the original doorknob and lock. You will appreciate the very spacious, light-filled living room that includes original windows & mantel, gas fireplace and built-in bookcases. On the opposite side of the living room near the original china cupboard, you will find room for a dining table. The former mudroom was converted to an ample first floor powder room with a square vessel sink and lacquered & granite vanity that blends perfectly with the original details of the property. You will find an updated eat-in kitchen with wood cabinetry, granite countertop, stainless steel appliances which includes a Liebherr refrigerator, Miele wall oven, gas cooktop, Fisher Paykel dishwasher drawers and a gas fireplace in a brick wall. The kitchen is a cheerful place to dine with a large twenty-five pane divided light picture window that overlooks the stone terrace and the gorgeous grounds that include Magnolia, Cedar and Japanese Maple trees. On the second floor there is a beautiful main bedroom with three stunning Gothic Revival windows. The smaller second bedroom includes a non-functioning fireplace and offers a great spot for a home office or a guest room. There is a spacious sized ceramic tile hall bathroom with tub/shower and also includes a non-functioning fireplace. In the hallway you will find two large closets. The basement has good storage space along with a laundry area and an exit to the outside. Recent improvements include updating the high velocity central air conditioning (2020) and installation of rail wood fencing (2020). Behind the property is a driveway (formerly known as Cedar Lane) that allows access to the detached oversized one car garage and additional parking. Enjoy the many amenities of living in East Falls - just footsteps away from Jefferson/Philadelphia University and McMichael Park, convenient to many local eateries including Fiorino's, Le Bus and InRiva, easy access to two train lines that bring you into Center City or a quick auto or bike ride into town along scenic Kelly Drive. This one-of-a kind property is a rare find!
