Welcome to the home built by Percival K. Boyer in the mid 1800’s in what was then known as Barren Hill. This well maintained gem boasts 4,000 square feet of elegant rooms and plenty of nooks and unique spaces. As you enter through the grand front entrance you will notice the central winding staircase up through to the 3rd floor. The first floor includes a sunlit formal living room connected by sliding pocket doors to a cozy den including a built in bookshelf and a wood burning stove set atop a handsome raised stone step and wall. Across the foyer is the dining room with wonderful newer windows throughout (2007) and a lovely marble mantle. Also includes a large closet for easy storage of your fine china and other items to make hosting your next dinner party a breeze. Through the swinging door is the gourmet sized kitchen with an inviting breakfast nook and view of beautiful flowering trees and the Gazebo. Original random width hardwood floors were recently re-sanded and 9ft high ceilings throughout. Climbing the main staircase to the 2nd floor brings you to three of the five bedrooms. The primary bedroom includes a walk-in and adjacent cedar plank closets. The connected bath has a wonderful view of the flowering trees while you soak in a warm bath in the antique claw foot tub, but also includes modern amenities of two sinks, and a standing shower. The other two bedrooms are oversized and are serviced by the 2nd full bath. A large hall closet provides additional storage space. This floor can also be reached by the rear stairs hidden at the back of the house. The third floor includes two more bedrooms, a full bath and kitchenette, great for a multi-family; and can be accessed by both staircases. The heating system has been updated to a 3-zoned natural gas (2007) radiant heat. The electric panel was also updated to 200 amps. The full un-finished basement provides a lot of storage and can be accessed through Bilco doors and an internal staircase. The property sits on ¾ of an acre and boasts a large circular driveway with a third entrance from Crescent Ave. It has an oversized one car garage with a loft that is perfect for storage or a studio workspace. The back patio is fantastic for entertaining or enjoying a quiet evening by a fire pit. The large backyard is a wonderful play area for children or pets and includes a tucked away garden shed. The gazebo houses the entrance to the property’s root cellar and un-capped well (wishes encouraged). For wine connoisseurs the root cellar may also be a great place for a wine cellar with a constant temperature of approximately 58 degrees and plenty of room for your collection. Located in the Award Winning Colonial School District and close by to shopping and a variety of great restaurants this home provides cozy work at home spaces, or an easy commute to Philadelphia, King of Prussia, 30 minutes to NJ and 90 minutes to NYC . Don’t miss your opportunity to live in the heart of historic Whitemarsh Township.
