Spacious and rare offering in the highly sought-after heart of West Mt. Airy. This 6-bedroom/2-bath twin is rich with character and original details. Built in 1908 and surrounded by trees and lush gardens, the house sits above street level on a quiet block. Perfect for hiking, bike rides and dog walking, this home puts you steps from Carpenter’s Woods and the Wissahickon Valley trails, Weavers Way Co-op, High Point Cafe, The Nesting House, Big Blue Marble Bookstore, the K-8 Henry School, and the vibrant community of Mt Airy Village. Halloween is a particularly magical time on the block with families swarming the streets after participating in the annual Town Watch parade. This prime location also provides easy access to Center City in addition to the great shops and endless activities that Northwest Philadelphia, the Main Line and Montgomery County have to offer. Upon entering through the original double-hung Dutch door, you will be struck by the warm oak woodwork, stained glass window and decorative mantel. The third floor skylight fills the central foyer and winding stairway with warm natural lighting. From the foyer you enter the joined living room/kitchen area that provides a great space for social gatherings. Just outside the eat-in-kitchen’s rear door, a bluestone patio creates an open-air room for morning coffee and weekend barbecues. A shed closet tucked beneath the 30 year-old trellised hydrangea is perfect for storing your gardening and grilling tools. The house was renovated top to bottom in 1989. The steam system was updated with a new boiler, a 100-amp electric service was installed, and a whole house fan was added that works wonderfully to pull in the cool night air. There are three rooms on each floor, two full baths (and a throne toilet in the basement!). Large closets are found on the upper floors. Currently the third floor has a basic kitchen in the middle room, but could easily revert to a bedroom or home office suite. The sizeable basement, accessible from both inside and out, was improved in the early 1990’s when a concrete floor was poured, the walls finished, and lighting added. The house is in need of energetic new owners who are able to handle the needed repairs. Being sold as-is.
