Welcome home to 900 Melrose Avenue. On a raised corner lot where Woodlawn and Melrose Avenues meet sits this classic home from an era when homes were built with sensitive care, intense pride and stellar workmanship. This spacious stone Colonial is deceptively larger than it appears from the street. The 2-car garage and large driveway provide ample parking while the quiet street is the perfect location to access all that Elkins/Melrose Park has to offer such as all the shops, parks and restaurants as well as the SEPTA train station. All are within walking distance. As you enter the property the 1st floor provides generous space to relax & entertain, featuring hardwood floors and extensive decorative moldings throughout. The formal dining room's large bay window overlooks the mature tree and professional landscaping in the front yard. The living room has two arch-topped bookshelf niches and a wood burning fireplace. A huge picture window overlooks the well manicured side yard , while a set of French doors lead you into the cozy sunroom with more built-ins. The galley kitchen has all the necessary appliances including two ovens, dishwasher, refrigerator, disposal and breakfast bar all with solid surface counters. A mudroom provides direct access from the kitchen to the garage and rear patio. Upstairs, the master suite occupies the rear wing with an updated en-suite bathroom, a walk-in closet and direct access to the large deck overlooking the rear yard. This provides a wonderful place to get away from it all. Another large bedroom also includes an en-suite bathroom and a walk-in closet creating 2 master suites on the 2nd floor. The remaining 2 bedrooms are currently being used as an office and a large custom walk in closet. A hall bathroom and a wall of closets complete this floor. The 3rd floor has the 5th bedroom and a full bathroom. There is also a large cedar closet along with ample storage space in the remainder of the un-finished attic. The basement is completely finished offering a family room area with a wet-bar, a spacious laundry area with a 1/4 bathroom and an additional storage area. There is also an outside entrance to the basement. The rear yard has a spa-like oasis tucked into the corner behind the garage featuring a hot tub with privacy curtains and access to the 2nd floor deck. A six-foot wooden fence adds additional privacy for all your outdoor entertainment. Included with this home is a whole house generator so there is never a concern of being without power.
