Description

Stunningly showcased beyond a stately custom-designed and commissioned hand-crafted, ornamental wrought iron parapet - presents a rare and treasured Home. Flirtatious gardens frame the arched and porticoed front Loggia. A private trellised courtyard offers discreet get-togethers while expertly pruned and graceful canopy Sycamores stand sentient. Playful light dapples across manicured private lawns. A Folly of a Garage sits pretty as a picture, while also serving the useful protection of a prized automobile. A recently added Carport, designed as if it grew from the earth itself in tandem w/ its adjacent Circa 1922 gem, eagerly begs to keep the rain away from those delivering groceries to the back-decked Kitchen entrance. Were it not for the '230 volt Electric Charging Station' at the ready- one might actually forget the century. This architectural jewel is authentically styled in the 'Spanish Colonial Revival Movement' launched at The Panama-California Exposition of 1915. Popular through the 1940's in the United States, prominent East Coast Families sought to bring this 'Spanish Eclecticism" home, incorporating local building materials such as Wissahickon Schist and Traditional elements. Majestically crowning the Home is a clay tiled roof of muted Greens- each made by hand and curved by drying over barrels. Expertly maintained, a Roof certification extends to the next fortunate owner with pre-purchased replacements at the ready if ever called upon. The nurturing owners since 1977, have not only updated systems throughout their precious time here; but they've conjured the soul of this beautiful creation bringing with them their own heart and work ethic. Scrape by scrape, paint was removed from doors & mouldings, beams & cabinetry- to reveal throughout the welcoming formerly hidden warm and honeyed Oak. Old growth hardwood with Mahogany inlay was restored to gleaming shine, plastered walls skimcoated and freshly painted, sensitive wallpaper choices were made for the embracing Kitchen with foundational Mexican Tile laid below linking the Mudroom/ Pantry. Patina'd antique Carrera Marble was incorporated into a recently re-designed Powder Room renovation. This elegant Interior is just breathtaking! Wedgewood blue was inspired by the Delft tiles of the wood-burning Fireplace surround- balanced by symmetrical, artisan-made bookshelves. Through the glass-paneled doors, another World awaits...Inspired by time spent stationed in the Orient, a respectful lansdscape scene was painted by a local East Oak Lane Artist studying at Temple University. Sensitive brush strokes dance well w/ the intricate detailing of the painted woodwork enveloping the gracious, formal Dining Room. After dinner- time for some Fun! Below, a festive Pool Hall experience awaits w/ adjacent Lounge. Years of restoration plus a recent refresh, and a wired for sound audio system- allow for dancing the night away, and snacks heaven on the custom fold-away buffet table. A tankless water heater & efficient Gas Heater hide away in the adjacent Tool Workshop. The Bedroom levels of the second and third floors delight with 3 full Baths providing for live/work/ play/ sleep activity 'each' connecting to the Bedrooms- so no one forfeits convenience. Another custom mural by another local Artist takes the blues away as work-out time is made easier with skies above. The 'star' of the upper home is the serene Master/ Sitting Room with an additional mantled focal point, and collected antique sconces to match the original breathtaking light overhead. The Art Deco influences are so interesting to discover. One does not have to look far though, as back in the Dining Room- that Chandelier is a classic Keeper!Located just within Philadelphia's border, enjoy LOW City real estate taxes, as well as the plethora of shopping & dining amenities of adjacent Montgomery County Suburbs. Walk to Melrose Park Station for a 4 stop commute to Center City, then onto the Airport for global living!
