This impressive six bedroom, 3.5 bath Tudor Revival Single sits on a corner lot in a truly park-like setting. A 4, 020 sq.ft., one-of-a-kind home that is located on one of Philadelphias most beautiful blocks. This property has a garage and three parking spaces. Designed by John T. Coneysin 1922, windows on four sides fill the house with natural light. The original wood door and door knocker lead into the vestibule adorned with a functional wooden coat rack made with vintage shoe forms. Next, step into an elegant center hall and look around. The semi open floor plan provides views in all directions. On the right is a spacious living room with oak floors, a wood fireplace and views of the garden stretching the length of the property. The original front door handle and lock are sitting on the mantel. Beyond the living room is an office/Florida room that has its own entrance to the garden. On the left side of the hallway are the dining room adjoining a stunning architect-designed, custom kitchen. The exquisite kitchen is the hub of this inviting home boasting custom maple cabinetry, a large butcher block center table, soapstone counters, stainless appliances and a stone floor with radiant heat. There is ample storage in two large pantries, 25 drawers of all sizes, nine cabinets, two lazy Susan cabinets, a desk, bookshelf and two slide out, trash/recycle containers. Artist/glassblower Angus Powers made the one-of-a-kind kitchen light fixtures. Purchase is negotiable. The kitchen opens onto the bonus room: an extraordinary glass conservatory that projects into the center of the garden. This unique year round space has a gas fireplace making a fantastic cozy space on a snowy day. The conservatory is a treasure. Imported and built in 1990, it now needs some TLC. The current owner will provide information. A convenient powder room completes this floor. Head up the graceful stairway, carpeted for acoustics, and to the second floor where youll find three generously-sized bedrooms and two full baths. Both renovated, one features a tub and dual vanity, the other bathroom has a large walk in shower. On the third floor are three more large bedrooms and one full bath. Additionally, the house has four heating zones, the central air has three zones, three of the toilets have new, low-flow toilets and the hot water heater is new. The garden is just as breathtaking as the home itself. A handmade mahogany garden gate with a fig leaf design graces the Osage Avenue entrance. The garden gate is being lovingly restored and will be rehung. The walled garden includes a flagstone patio, fish pond, tiered yard, brick pathway and stepping-stones made by neighborhood children. The surrounding gardens include a silver bell tree, five varieties of hydrangea, crepe myrtle, honeysuckle, peonies, redbuds, azalea, buddleia, a miniature maple tree, blooming quince bush, pyracantha, daylilies, lavender, daffodils, lilac, irises, roses, a holly tree and one of the most beautiful cherry trees in the neighborhood.
