Move right into this beautifully renovated, stately Victorian with wrap around porch, perched above West Chestnut Hill Avenue just a block from the trailheads of Fairmount Park. The houses lining this street were designed by some of Philadelphia’s finest residential architects, and 115 is no exception. Designed by William H. Decker in 1888, this home features sensitive upgrades coupled with the original architectural details, such as coffered ceilings, crown molding, gleaming inlaid hardwood floors, deep windowsills, stained glass windows, Mercer tiles and more. Enter through the French doors with filigree wrought ironwork, to the sunlit parlor with the main staircase, fabulous parquet floors, coffered ceiling, wood-burning fireplace with carved mantle and antique hand-blown glass chandelier. The dining room features a fireplace with original tile, and adjacent custom butler’s pantry with 2 beverage fridges. The living room, currently used as a billiards room, features the original decorative plaster ceilings, and floor to ceiling windows that open to the wrap-around porch. The spacious kitchen offers custom cabinetry, breakfast area, 8-burner Wolf range, Sub-Zero fridge, honed granite and quartzite counters, brick backsplash with Mercer tiles, rear staircase and powder room. On the second floor, the primary bedroom suite offers a marble fireplace with delft tiles, walk-in closet and sunlit bath with soaking tub, and walk-in marble shower. The second bedroom, currently being used as an office, has two closets and access to the full hall bath. A sitting room with fireplace (or additional bedroom), hall closet and laundry room complete the second floor. The third floor offers an additional three bedrooms, each with ample closet space, and a full hall bath. The wrap-around porch is partially enclosed as a sunroom, and will become a favorite spot to relax on warm weather evenings. This immaculate home is in a prime location, just a few blocks from the fantastic shopping and dining in Chestnut Hill, the recreation of Fairmount Park, and both the Chestnut Hill East and West Train Stations, for an easy commute into the city. Don’t miss this gem!
