123 W UPSAL ST
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, United States

Description

Stunning, historic, impeccably cared-for, perfect 21st century home. Built as an elegant residence on the broad boulevard of West Upsal Street, c. 1883, this 3 story, light-filled stone Victorian offers 6 bedrooms, 3 1/2 baths with numerous special features: Architectural Treats like oversized windows flooded with natural light, gleaming oak floors with several artful inlays, sweeping oak staircase, unique tower design at the southwest corner of all floors, high ceilings, attractive formal dining room large enough for great feasts, broad front porch; Functional Amenities like custom-designed hand-built mudroom with benches and cubbies, renovated butler's pantry with custom-built pantry storage, 2nd floor laundry big enough for folding tables, custom-designed 10x14 walk-in closet on 3rd floor, high-efficiency wood-stove insert in living room fireplace that can by itself heat much of the house, 2013 gas boiler and Central Air; New Delights in an Old House like recent cook's kitchen all new 5 years ago and upgraded since then, all new bathrooms including brand new hand-built 1st floor powder room, spacious master bedroom suite with master bath with whirlpool tub and separate shower, multiple deep closets for storage. The house is complimented by outside living space: a luxurious custom built 16x20 Pennsylvania fieldstone patio drystack style, surfaced with slate flagstone, post and beam shed-style playhouse with climbing wall at the rear, carriage house (conveyed as-is)with a history of use as stables, as greenhouse, as garage, as studio and for storage. Off-street parking for about 4 cars with original porte-cochere. All of these features are graced by a splendid garden, almost all of which was meticulously planned and lovingly planted since 2013 with specimen plantings, flowering shrubs and trees, abundant perennials too numerous to count. 123 West Upsal Street is located a short walk to the Chestnut Hill West commuter rail line, to the sweet baked goods at Frosted Fox Bakery, or to Mt. Airy's favorite Weaver's Way Co-op. It is close to popular historic sites as well as to the natural green trails and woods along the Wissahickon Creek. It's just a 20 minute drive to Center City Philadelphia. Great house. Great neighborhood. Probably one of the nicest properties to go on the market in 2018!
