    Description

    There are many things you can change or improve when you own or are considering purchase a home but the one thing you can't change is the LOCATION. Now let me tell you about this exciting new listing with a central location on the edge of all the excitement Philadelphia has to offer with its museums, theater, entertainment, restaurants and yet be within walking distance to Pennypack Park with 1,600 acres of woodlands & meadows offering hiking trails, picnic areas, educational information centers & so much more.. Additionally there is quick & easy access to major roadways traveling in all directions, Public transit, SEPTA train station, close proximity to Chestnut Hill & downtown Jenkintown for quaint shops & a vast assortment of restaurants for the connoisseur in all of us. This stately 3 story Dutch colonial, constructed in the 1920's, wrapped in brick with a slate roof, solid built with good bones, is serenely nestled in the Fox Chase neighborhood on a double corner lot. Set back from the road, be sure to notice the seller has created a piece of artwork: a hand sculpted garden wall comprised of Wissahickon Schist methodically gathered in Mt Airy and brought to 1109 Rhawn St crafting an accent piece complete with a picket fence garden gate. Upon pulling into the driveway you are keenly aware of the "Pride of Ownership" and attention to detail the owners have exhibited outside and in! AS you park and exit your car you will see sweeping green lawn, with an original park bench plus tall trees affording natural privacy. Approaching the house to the side entry door you cross the flagstone patio & walkway - glance to the right to see a large flagstone patio with pergola, a vintage chandelier hanging over the dining table and a Chiminea fireplace to take the chill out of the air on a cool Fall evening. Entering the home go up the steps turning to the left passing the stairway to the 2nd floor then step into the gracious warm & inviting living room. Here we get a taste of the time-honored charm & character the home has to offer from beautiful original hardwood floors, to radiator box covers which look more like furniture, touches of traditional millwork & moldings, windows with deep sills, a stunning wood burning brick fireplace with colonial mantle & brick hearth flanked by double French doors accessing the heated Sun porch/Florida room. This sun-drenched room boasts walls of 12 casement windows topped with frosted glass transom tops & beveled glass sidelights. There is a slatted ceiling with 2 breezy ceiling fans, Berber carpet covers the floor and a brick wall with display shelves complete this room. Moving into the handsome formal dining room with customary crown & chair rail trim, a built-in corner china cabinet & pass thru window. This room awaits larger holiday gatherings of family & friends or a quiet dinner for 2. The kitchen will please the sous-chef in you with it's well planned design for efficiency during meals prep, clean up and execution of the entertainment plan. Abundant 42" cabinets, ample counters, breakfast bar (4 seats). built-in corner china cabinet, d/w, stainless sink w/filtered water faucet, 5 burner gas s/c range and a pair of French doors access the side yard while a striking gas fired fireplace strategically positioned between rooms making it visible from Kitchen & den/bonus/breakfast rm & providing a warming radiant glow.
