Description

Nestled in the heart of lush East Mt Airy on a wide, tree-lined street, this handsome brick Tudor twin circa 1930, offers classic simplicity, design-sensitive renovations and plenty of charm. Tucked onto one of the most picturesque, storybook blocks, the home is mere steps from the shops, galleries and restaurants of cobblestoned Germantown Avenue and the trails of Fairmount Park. The quintessential Mt Airy charm of this home begins at the curb with a perfectly manicured lawn, beautiful perennial gardens and a charming brick archway. Enter into a lovely foyer and center hall with wide stairs to the second floor. The sun-drenched sunken living room features hardwood parquet floors, a stone wood burning fireplace, a bay window, coffered ceilings and original molding and trim work. Beautiful French doors lead to the elegant dining room, perfect for hosting a large dinner party. The dining room opens to the spacious eat-in kitchen offering recessed lighting, wood cabinets, and a large island, an ideal gathering spot for friends and family. Upstairs, find a gracious primary bedroom with en-suite tile bathroom with a frameless shower and pedestal sink. Then, find two additional sun-soaked bedrooms and a hall bath with retro-inspired back and white tile flooring and a skylight. A delicate stained glass skylight and two large closets (one cedar) round out the second floor. The basement is unfinished, offers plenty of storage and leads to an oversized garage and driveway. Out back, a sunny outdoor oasis awaits, complete with a professionally-designed pollinator garden which boasts blueberry shrubs, echinacea, and more, and is the ideal place to gather around a fire pit or have dinner al fresco. Additional home features include two-zoned central air, a new roof and updated electric. Mt. Airy is a bustling neighborhood with all of the charm of a small town. Nestled adjacent to Fairmount Park's Wissahickon Valley, it offers a vibrant residential community, an eclectic mix of restaurants, shops and cafes and is served by two train lines. Enjoy a morning latte and crepe from High Point Cafe, artisanal pizza and a craft beer at Earth Bread and Brewery, and Tuesday night quizzo at Mt Airy Taproom. A cozy seat at the bar at the legendary local favorite, McMenamin's is a must, and for date night, you'll love dining under the stars at Jansen. In Mt Airy, shopping local is a must and grocery shopping at Weaver's Way Co-op makes it easy and enjoyable. If you love the balance between the vibrancy of the city and the tranquility of your own private residence, you'll love coming home to 425 Wadsworth Avenue.
