“We are only leaving this house because life is taking us to the west coast or we would stay here forever.” – current owner
This very loved and well-maintained West Mt. Airy twin is on the gorgeous garden block of Wellesley Road in the Henry Catchment Area. It has a detached, extra-wide garage and three outdoor areas to enjoy: the front covered veranda with slatted wood ceiling and outdoor fan, the fenced back yard, and the 2nd floor deck off of the master bedroom. Inside, there are 5 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms that have been re-tiled, and a bonus basement bath. The kitchen has been redone with light granite counters and subway back splash, porcelain heated tile floors, and new appliances. The house has been updated with a high efficiency low-profile central air system (no ducts or soffits!) on the first and second floor and separate ductless system for the 3rd floor, new electrical panel, hot water heater, and new washer and dryer. And yes, the fire place in the living room is fully operational. It’s walking distance to the Wissahickon, the neighborhood co-op, High Point Cafe, and the Carpenter and Allen’s Lane train stations on the Chestnut Hill West line. This is a house that will let you take full advantage of everything that Mt. Airy has to offer.
