    Description

    This elegant, four bedroom, 2.1 bath Victorian townhome in the heart of Chestnut Hill was originally designed by architect James Windrum and built in 1888 as part of the Jacob S. Disston Residence. In 1914, architect George S. Idell, converted the original mansion into three dwellings. This 2,600 sqft. residence is an elegant blend of old and new, with a slate roof, 11 ft. ceilings, oak parquet floors, a third floor balcony, and FIVE wood-burning fireplaces, all with the original Victorian tile surrounds, including one in three of the bedrooms. The updated kitchen features a butler?s pantry and a powder room. This gracious residence has been lovingly maintained by the current owners, who added a spacious second-floor laundry, and a koi pond off the terrace. The home retains many of the whimsical touches of the previous owner, a noted artist. It is ideally located within steps of the shops, galleries, and restaurants at the top of Chestnut Hill, Regional Rail (Chestnut Hill West), and the Free Library. This is a once-in-a-generation property, ready for you to carry on its historic tradition.
