Description

Welcome to 537 Elkins Avenue, a very special gem located in the heart of Elkins Park!! If you love nature, gardening and enjoying gorgeous outdoor spaces, this property is for you!! Beautifully landscaped and designed to be low-maintenance, the curb appeal is off the charts!!! Let's start with the exteriors...a beautiful rock garden greets you by the front entrance. The expansive stone front porch impresses, and the covered side porch provides perfect outdoor living space. Stunning rear garden contains many specimen plants, and includes a raised-bed vegetable garden. A very special Japanese garden is complete with a bridge leading to the side porch. A stone walkway leads to the two-level deck, ideal for grilling and dining al fresco!! Now we step inside the vestibule entry and take notice of the living room with its original chestnut beamed ceiling and unique Craftsman style alcove. The handsome picture sandstone surround wood-burning fireplace is the focal point here! The music room is sunny and bright with a (non-functional) fireplace accented by a pretty green tile surround and unique beveled mirror. The dining room is presently used as a family room, as it opens to the kitchen for great flow. However you enjoy this room, the fireplace with a new gas log set and original Mercer tile inserts in the surround is the perfect compliment!! The kitchen has plenty of room for the cook! Soapstone countertops, plentiful wood cabinetry, lovely tile backsplash and 5 burner gas cooking is sure to please. Step right out to the well placed mudroom and the first floor powder room. The kitchen provides convenient access to the rear staircase. The main turned staircase to the second floor has charming stained glass windows on the landing. A large hallway leads to four bedrooms; the owner's suitehas a unique alcove showing a parquet floor with a patterned border. The full bath has a whirlpool tub and shower, and there are several closets. Three additional bedrooms are all well sized, one bedroom hosts the washer and dryer... so no trips to the basement!! The hall bath has a stall shower. On the third floor, there are two bedrooms (one is presently used as a storage room) and a full bath, plus loads of storage. Basement level is clean and cheerful and has several storage areas and an all purpose playroom/billiard room. New roof installed in 2015 along with new gutter and downspout system. New gas furnace and central air installed 2012. Large 2-car garage with electric/remote opener. The stone construction, large overhangs and trees keep the house cool. Just a walk around the corner to the train that can take you directly into center city Philadelphia (20 minutes), the airport, or Amtrak. Or stop into the lovely shops and restaurants found in Elkins Park's High School Road corridor. Enjoy the wonderful parks, playgrounds and ball fields in the township, as well as the dog park in Curtis Arboretum! Make your appointment today!!
