If this seven-bedroom estate were on the Main Line or even in the leafy environs of Chestnut Hill, perhaps a four-hole putting green might not be so surprising. But in Mount Airy? We may have raised an eyebrow. Although, Mount Airy is known to have once provided a summer retreat for wealthy Philadelphians, so perhaps we should have known better. This home does look like a pleasantly shaded place to spend the balmier months.
The home has been recently updated to include central air, parquet flooring and modern electric systems. The kitchen has also been upgraded and finishes carry familiar names: Viking, Wood Mode, Jenn Air and Sub-Zero. Off the kitchen lie living and dining rooms with twin wood-burning fireplaces. Four of the seven bedrooms are on the second floor, including the master suite. The remaining three are on the third floor. The basement includes a laundry room, gym and storage space.
The grounds surrounding the home include a rose garden and the aforementioned putting green as well as a full-sized tennis court. There is also outdoor entertaining to be had at the exterior kitchen. A carriage house is included on the land, with three-car parking and a studio apartment.
