On the Market: New Neotraditional in Chestnut Hill
Part of a three-unit project that turned the house next to it into two condos, this brand-new modern classic puts you in the middle of everything people love about Chestnut Hill.
So you’ve been dreaming about living the good life at the very top of the city, in Chestnut Hill.
The good life doesn’t get more elevated than this.
This simply elegant new house for sale sits just one block north of the intersection of Germantown Avenue and Bethlehem Pike in Chestnut Hill. At 445 feet above sea level, the intersection is the highest point in the city of Philadelphia.
Living here will also elevate your spirits, for developer Main Street Development has produced a spacious, light-filled, Arts and Crafts-inspired house filled with all sorts of quality amenities, including a whole-house sound system and a central vacuum.
Its main floor follows an informal open plan in which the foyer features a sitting area next to the staircase.
To its right is a spacious great room with coffered ceiling and fireplace.
To its left lie the combined dining room and kitchen.
Of course, the kitchen is outfitted with only the finest in appliances and materials, and there’s plenty of room for casual dining on its center island.
Upstairs, you’ll find four spacious bedrooms — none more spacious and comfortable than the master suite. It has both an indoor sitting area and a private balcony overlooking your grounds.
The spa-like master bathroom includes both a soaking tub and a large shower with three heads.
Down below you’ll find a finished basement that you could turn into a media room, game room, home gym, or in-law or au pair suite — it has a full bathroom, and one of this house’s two laundry rooms is also located on this floor.
A fieldstone patio and landscaped side yard add to this house’s appeal and provide space for outdoor entertaining and relaxation.
Not only are you on top of it all here, you’re close to it all too: the Germantown Avenue shopping and dining district is one block south and Chestnut Hill Hospital is one block north. You’re also a block away from both SEPTA Chestnut Hill Regional Rail stations. Which means you can probably leave your cars in its two-car garage most of the time.
