Situated down a private lane, this custom home is surrounded by nature with expansive green vistas overlooking Fairmount Park. This exceptional property was originally part of the adjacent Krisheim Estate, home to the Houston family: the original planners and developers of Chestnut Hill. It is truly a magical setting with unmatched privacy and serenity yet a short walk to Chestnut Hill's wonderful shops and restaurants and easy access to Center City. This contemporary gem offers sweeping open spaces, soaring vaulted ceilings and light filled rooms all oriented to bring the outdoors in. The step down living room with fireplace opens to a cozy family room with charming wood burning stove. The kitchen area includes an open bar, built in desk, center island and space for a large kitchen table next to a wall of sliding glass doors that lead to an elevated deck overlooking the treetops. Dining room, powder room and laundry room complete the first floor. The second floor includes the master suite and three additional bedrooms and a hall bath. The master suite includes a large en suite bath, many closets, its own private deck and stairs that lead to a charming loft/office area. Two of the hall bedrooms include loft areas, as well. At the end of your hectic day, open the door and escape to your own private retreat.
