There is a lot to love about this stylish Mt. Airy home. The stone facade is classic, the hardwood floors are gleaming, the kitchen is new and there is roof deck potential. But our favorite detail is the third-floor playroom, which has been made over as Mt. Airy’s own private family Småland, replete with all of the Swedish retailer’s most colorful children’s accessories.
Down on the ground floor, the home features a handsome foyer that gives way to a living room with fireplace and built-in cupboards. The brand-new kitchen features a built-in of its own: an island-style gas stovetop range. There is a breakfast room adjacent to the kitchen with richly patterned wallpaper and yet more built-in storage. Upstairs the five bedrooms are split between the second and third floors, most with adjoining bathrooms. The third floor has room for one bedroom, a bath, and the darling playroom.
The property includes a large basement as well as a stone patio and landscaped grounds. Sellers are also offering a home warranty to the new buyer.
