Tile floors, painted stuccoed pathways and perfectly wild gardens could easily convince you this carriage house was perched somewhere overseas. But then there is the bracketing for the flat-screen TV, the luxury kitchen and the palatial bath endemic to high-end American real estate. This property is actually tucked away in Chestnut Hill privately enough to evoke Europe but close enough to the Chestnut Hill East station to get you to Center City Philadelphia in less than 20 minutes.
With two beds and two baths in 3,200 square feet, rooms in this home are graciously sized and very bright. In addition to the updated kitchen, the first floor includes a family room that opens onto a patio and a guest suite with its own full bath. Upstairs the en-suite master bedroom is adjacent to a great room with wall-sized windows.
Outside the grounds are perfect for strolling (and, if Game of Thrones is to be believed, gossiping). In addition to the brick pathways, there is a lily pond and series of gardens.
