At first glance, one would think this English-style home on a quiet street in East Mt. Airy is an old historic charmer. On the outside, a beautiful stone facade and a tiny, green garden greet you as you enter the front door of this townhome. But inside, this home is something much more. With modern updates completed in 2006, this home is sure to be an incredible first place for the right buyer.

As you climb the stairs from the front door up to the living room, you’ll notice a large, slate fireplace, followed by the incredible hardwood floors and detailed wainscotting throughout the room, giving it the elegant, updated vibe. A splash of color, adding a vibrant red to spruce the room up, helps to make this living space come to life. The open feel of this room is also something to take notice of. The large windows at the front of the room allow for plenty of natural light to stream through, not only brightening the room but opening it up as well.

The living room flows through into the kitchen and dining area, an excellent space not only for cooking but also for entertaining. Complete with granite countertops, a stunning marble backsplash, Aristikraft fawn finished cabinetry and stainless steel appliances, this kitchen provides everything an accomplished cook needs. What’s even more exciting for the first-timer who’s always entertaining is a deck that opens directly from the kitchen. Whether you’re grabbing a couple brews with friends or serving a more polished affair, this allows for plenty of space to cater to your guests all night long.

Moving upstairs, you’ll find three cozy bedrooms, all equipped with energy-saving brushed-nickel finish ceiling fans. The master bedroom is nice, sizeable space with a large closet. The home’s one bathroom is lined with imported mocha tile and includes a shower and whirlpool bathtub.

To make this house an even more desirable First-Time Find, it includes a one-car garage and laundry room with washer and dryer hookups on the ground floor, truly making this home a jack of all trades.
