You'll love the kitchen.

If we’ve learned one thing from this recent run of warmer temps, it’s that nothing beats being outside in the springtime. The birds are chirping. A warming sun combats the chill in the air. Flecks of green grass begin to protrude out from that last (dirty) snow pile trying to hang on to that last vestige of a hellish winter. Sorry, pal. We’ve sprung ahead, your time is over.

Anyway, this home at 9506 Wheelpump Lane in Chestnut Hill is certainly ready for spring (and all seasons, really). Located in the “elbow” east of Morris Arboretum, it’s on a quiet, tree-lined street along one of the most beautiful places in the entire city. That means it’s perfect for long secluded walks or strolls to the shops and train into Center City. While the spacious grounds (1/3 of an acre) are a plus, this two-story Cape is deceptively larger than it looks. At almost 4,200-square-feet, you’re in for a real treat once you get inside.

Let’s get right to it. The light-filled kitchen is a real statement room of the home. Decked out in top-of-the-line stainless steel appliances standout against the lively and classic green custom cabinetry. Also note the flooring, which is actually a porcelain tile made to mimic the look of wood.

We would be remiss not to mention the luxurious master bath, which features a jewel box shower lined in Alaskan onyx tile work and a lovely dual vanity from Restoration Hardware.
