This classic Mt. Airy twin has lovely original details and charm for days. The country-house vibe will have you envisioning summer days relaxing on the front porch before you even head inside. The spacious and breezy front living room features original rose pine floors, built-in bookshelves, crown molding and original plaster ceiling medallion. Two sets of lovely French doors lead out to the porch and generous front garden. Back through the sunny dining room is the U-shaped kitchen with its own custom touches like a picture rail and exposed brick display niche alongside the crisp white appliances and pretty slate tile backsplash. Head out to the huge backyard via the handy mudroom with washer and dryer. The best of both worlds, the amazing yard space is low-maintenance while offering raised planting beds to satisfy any shade of green thumb. The footprint of this home allows all bedrooms to have windows on two walls, creating beautiful light almost any time of day. Both front rooms are larger than the rear, so either the second or third floor could work for the master, though the second floor is a bit closer to the retro-cool blue tiled bathroom. The high ceilings on the top floor allow for the charm of dormers without taking away standing height. Beneath the farmhouse chic this home is also energy-efficient: In 2013 the seller completed an entire retrofit including a Utica hydronic boiler, air sealing, attic and roofline insulation and high-efficiency windows. Enjoy the great community spirit and artsy vibe that continues to draw people to Mt. Airy at local meeting spots like Weavers Way Co-op, Allens Lane Art Center and Mt. Airy Arts Garage. Wissahickon Valley Park is nearby for all your hiking, biking and nature needs, while the always-expanding food scene is also not to be missed. The proximity to Center City makes commuting a breeze, but with year-round activities, historical sites, beautiful murals and excellent schools (this home falls within the CW Henry catchment), you may find that you don’t leave the neighborhood much.
