This 1925 detached Dutch colonial with an enormous yard is the epitome of Mt. Airy charm. Lovingly maintained for more than 25 years by the current owners–only the third since the house was built–the home has been upgraded over time, seamlessly blending modern conveniences with original character. There are eye-catching details around every corner, from the working stone fireplace in the living room to the built-in china cabinets in the dining room to the cool cork kitchen floors. The main floor features a traditional layout with separate living, dining and kitchen areas; its wide archways, wood accents like the pristine oak floors with decorative inlay, and warm color palette give it a relaxed, welcoming feel that’s far from formal or stuffy. The thoughtfully renovated eat-in kitchen features butcher block countertops, a mix of Shaker-style and glass-paneled cabinetry, classic white subway tile backsplash and porcelain farmhouse-style sink. There’s also a butler’s pantry with additional cabinetry and prep space as well as the sweetest half bath with white hex tile floor and floating corner sink. The second floor has the same great hardwood floors and a spacious bathroom with marble-topped dual vanity, pretty alcove tub with full-wall subway tile surround, and radiant tile floors. There are three nicely sized bedrooms, all with good closet space and wonderful natural light. From the hallway there’s access to the walk-up attic, which offers a ton of potential for the next owner–master bedroom retreat or magical playspace perhaps? The basement has lots of storage space and a laundry area; with good ceiling height and lighting, adding an area rug and couch would easily convert it into a useable hangout space or the crafting/hobby zone of your dreams. The huge-even-for-Mt. Airy backyard features a lush green lawn, planting beds, pergola with flagstone seating area and trees for days. Enjoy the great community spirit and rich arts culture that continues to draw people to Mt. Airy at local meeting spots like Weavers Way Co-op, Allens Lane Art Center and Mt. Airy Art Garage. Of course, Wissahickon Valley Park is nearby for all your hiking, biking and nature needs, while the always-expanding food scene along the Germantown Ave corridor is not to be missed.
