Located just outside Chestnut Hill, in Old Wyndmoor, Springfield, Montgomery County, this early 20th century stone house with wrap-around porch elicits feelings of simpler days when life afforded time to sit on the porch and read, sip a beverage,play with a baby, or wave to the neighbors. These days, you may very well be checking email, or taking a phone call, but, still, the porch beckons you to "stay awhile". The house is nestled in a sea of green, with its picket fence that corrals a flourishing cottage garden, full of perennials. As you walk up the restored stone steps to the immaculate porch with Brazilian hardwood flooring, the property exudes the feeling of home. Enter the front door to a large, well-proportioned living room with gas-fired fireplace, windows on three sides, beautiful oak floors, and the turned staircase. The sizable dining room offers a beautiful bay window, and entrance to light-filled breakfast room, that you will use all day long. The large, well-appointed, kitchen has plenty of counter space, storage space, and hanging out space. Heading to the back door that leads to the driveway is an ample "mudroom" space that easily organizes day-to-day life. The first floor is completed with a full bath. Out the kitchen door and across the driveway is an over-sized one-car garage. Heading to the second floor, you will delight in the original stain-glassed windows that embellish the stairwell. Once on the spacious second floor landing, you'll find three bedrooms, a full bath with shower/tub combination, the conveniently located laundry room, and a large storage closet. On to the third floor are two more sizable bedrooms and a full bath with claw-foot tub and separate walk-in shower. The bonus space in the finished basement is currently used as an office and workout area, but could easily be outfitted as playroom, media room, or your dream space. The basement also houses a wine cellar, and mechanicals room. New air conditioning in 2018. First and second floors freshly painted in 2019. Porch and deck flooring sanded, cleaned, and stained in 2019. Additional parking space added and driveway resurfaced in 2019. All windows restored with new chains and weights, so they open and close easily. Refinished kitchen cabinetry. There isn't a better buy in Wyndmoor.
