The first floor has a semi-open floor plan, with distinct living, dining and kitchen spaces and double-entry stairs connecting the kitchen and living areas. The kitchen was recently updated with gas stove with vent hood, traditional white cabinetry, black granite counters, stainless-steel appliances and subway-tile backsplash. The second floor is home to the master bedroom (king bed) with en-suite bathroom, along with a second bedroom (full bed), an office room with newly renovated private balcony, deep linen closet, and second bathroom. The third floor has a third bedroom (queen bed), a second office, and bathroom with clawfoot soaking tub. Outside, a back patio is accessible from the kitchen and sideyard and is surrounded by greenery. Basement was recently updated and has washer, dryer, utility sink and a home workshop (basement accessible from kitchen and Bilco doors on the back patio). The home is kept comfortable with two-zone central air, radiant heat, a newly installed fireplace/flu and a newly insulated attic and eaves. There is street parking in front of house for two vehicles, and an attached stone garage in the backyard holds one small car or offers plenty of bike and outdoor storage, and is accessible via a grassed private road/alley. Chestnut Hill is an amazing location—the best of Philadelphia. Our house is a block from the shops and restaurants of Germantown Ave and the Saturday Chestnut Hill Farmers' Market. It also lies between two regional lines with direct access to Center City and beyond, with the nearest station less than a ten-minute walk away. There are also multiple nearby trails (nearest trailhead is 3 blocks away) that connect to the Wissahickon forest, offering over 50 miles of trails accessible on foot, by bike or on horseback. Biking distance to Chestnut Hill College, or a train ride directly to Temple, UPenn, Drexel, among many other colleges and universities. No pets and no smoking. Furnishings: This is a 5-bedroom house currently furnished as 3 bedrooms, 2 home offices, three full bathrooms and one half bath. We will rent the house furnished and are happy to discuss adjustments based on how you will use the space and what you will bring with you.
