601 E. Sedgwick Street is located in the formerly known Sedgwick Farms neighborhood of Mt. Airy and was built by Mt. Airy's own Ashton Tourison. Sedgwick Farms was developed in the early 1900s with sheep farms and grand homes all along Sedgwick Street. The history and beautiful architecture of this time period is still evident in this home. The builder and designer, Archer Lane Design, worked hand in hand to lovingly restore as much of the original character as possible while still updating the home to fit the comforts of today. Featured in Philadelphia Style Magazine and Philadelphia Magazine. You will find stunning trim and original hardwood floors throughout. Dual zoned HVAC, 2 powder rooms on the first floor, a gourmet kitchen with Bertazzoni appliances and lots of storage space. The Carrara marble and white shaker cabinets give it timeless design, while the pocket doors, window seat, bay windows, wood burning fireplace and mantel as well as the high ceilings add to the beauty of this home. The formal living room on the 1st floor opens out onto a large side patio with outdoor wood burning fireplace, perfect for entertaining. On the 2nd floor you will find a large landing at the end of the grand, curved staircase. Stop to sit in the window seat to admire the yard. There is also a master bedroom with en suite bathroom, complete with double vanity and large shower. The terrace/sleeping porch off the family room looks out onto the back yard, rear patio and 2 car garage. So peaceful! A 2nd bedroom, laundry and hall bathroom complete the 2nd floor. On the 3rd floor you will find 3 bedrooms, a charming playroom/storage space and hall bathroom with restored, original clawfoot tub. The basement has high ceilings and is clean and freshly painted. It could be easily finished for more living space but is great for storage as is. The basement has Bilco doors that walk out into the back yard. This home is located near public transportation, the restaurants and shops of Germantown Ave. in Mt. Airy and Chestnut Hill as well as the suburbs. Welcome home to 601 E. Sedgwick!
