Virtual & video showings only! See link at end of description. A verdant oasis surrounds this immaculate Twin at the edge of Chestnut Hill. Constructed in the mid 80's of block construction (stucco over masonry), this wonderful home lives like a single-family house with an abundance of windows to take advantage of the fantastic Fairmount Park views. With over 1/3 of an acre, the property extends all the way from Cornelia Place down to Valley Green Road. A low maintenance exterior is left in a natural state (no grass to mow!) while the 3-tiered rear entertainment deck is the perfect place for large gathering to enjoy the sunsets. The placement of the house into the hillside provides for an abundance of windows across the entire multi-level rear of the home. At the entry, an oversized 1-car garage (maybe 2 MINIs could fit inside!) provides great storage & the paver driveway can hold an additional 2 cars. Fortunately, there is ample street parking when one wants to have larger parties. Enter into the side hallway through the front door, and already you will begin to enjoy the unique lay-out of the home, with sight lines into the living area. A large coat closet is tucked around the corner. The contemporary kitchen is a sleek & modern design with flush cabinets on all 4 walls. An artistic stone backsplash provides a great focal point on one wall, and there is a built-in cafe table for 2. The placement of the garage at the front provides for a very private enclosed courtyard garden that is accessible from either the kitchen or the dining room. The dining room has sight lines to the lower level living room. The living room has another set of French doors to the rear entertainment decks, a wall of West facing windows and a newly installed wood stove (both flues were re-lined in 2014). Down another 3 steps is the cozy family room/library that is flooded with light from windows on 3 sides. Down another half-set of stairs one will find the laundry area and the powder room. Accessed via a door in the powder room is a large area of basement storage. Down another half set of stairs is the finished basement and another room used as an office. Upstairs, the first of the 4 bedrooms has 3 walls of windows as well as built-in shelves & a storage closet (currently used as an office). On the top floor, all of the 3 remaining bedrooms have vaulted ceilings and there are a series of stationary windows that provide great natural light into the hallway. The hall bathroom (and the master en-suite) were just completely remodeled in 2018. The master suite overlooks the rear yard & distant Fairmount Park views. It has a walk-in closet and another standard closet in addition to the newly renovated bathroom with a large glass-enclosed stall shower. So many enhancements in the past 6 years. In 2014, the roof, gutters and soffits/fascias were replaced. All of the windows, interior & exterior doors (except the large panel windows) were also replaced. The hot water heater was replaced in 2016. It's an amazing space that gets abundant light throughout the home at any time of the day. It~s also so convenient to simply pop out the front door and walk (or bike!) down Valley Green Road to Forbidden Drive. If you don~t mind a leisurely stroll, one can enjoy a long walk to all of the shops & restaurants along Germantown Avenue.
