Fans of Chestnut Hill love its blending of suburb and city. Its commercial district exudes a sophisticated urban vibe, while its residential side streets are portraits of sylvan repose.

This dignified-yet-hip stone Colonial on the Hill’s east side embodies everything people like about Chestnut Hill. It’s located on a quiet street around the corner from Wyndmoor Regional Rail station and a few blocks’ walk from both the Market Square shopping center and the Chestnut Hill business district. In terms of the classic real estate mantra, it checks off all three boxes: location, location, location.

And what do you get in this location? A beautifully updated home with plenty of attractive spaces for indoor and outdoor living.

Family room

Media room

Gas fireplaces in the first-floor family room and the media room in the walkout basement add warmth (literal and figurative) to this home.

Sun porch

Its sun porch offers you the opportunity to enjoy healthful sunshine all year round.


Its eat-in kitchen boasts all the latest appliances from Bosch and Samsung in a bright classically-styled environment.

Master bedroom

Master bathroom

Its bedrooms and bathrooms are comfortable and accommodating, and the bathrooms boast elegant materials like marble vanities. The master bedroom also has a huge walk-in closet, and there’s a roof deck off one of the other second-floor bedrooms.

That roof deck is one of three distinctive outdoor spaces attached to this home. Down on the ground, you’ll find a fire pit area and a flagstone patio as well.

And if you own a Tesla, you can charge it in one of the garage’s two bays.

Put simply, this home is a 21st-century marvel in an early 20th-century package in a location that can’t be beat in one of the city’s nicest neighborhoods.
