Description

Seldom does one encounter such a stunning architectural gem set so quietly amongst verdant beauty in the City. Slate sidewalks of yesteryear softly beckon to a welcoming Wissahickon schist, wrap-around Porch cooly shaded by sculpted evergreens. The softly curved stone walls create fabulous spaces to gather with an adjacent Solarium graciously serving multi-seasonal fun. An impressive 1900c. 'Dutch door' w/ original hardware commands attention and introduces a Foyer fitting this subtly grand French Colonial Manor. Bejeweled Stained glass adds beauty and light; while the handsome, unblemished, and expertly crafted wood molding soulfully frames the experience. The intricate staircase w/ its carved festooned Newell post and tuck-away bench, plus a floral papered Powder Room- just delight. The double-wide pocket doors link the spacious Living Room with the luscious Library. Custom bookshelves and a brick and limestone wood-burning fireplace stand ready to serve a cozy conversation or a serious chess match. Classicly designed for the ages, impeccable louvered shutters in both rooms offer privacy, visual depth, and additional comfort from the elements. Oak Parkay w/ Mahogany inlay flooring grounds... and soaring ceilings infuse airy movement above. A large Hall Closet, Dining Room, Breakfast Room, a convenient Laundry Room, Back Staircase, and an 'Oh-so-charming Kitchen-' complete the first level. High-performance flooring meeting today's exacting standards marry well with the impeccable and rare "Boomerang" Formica counters. Paneled walls are back- didn't you hear?! Amber glass lighting fixtures crown above, and all combined offer glimpses of design excellence through the decades of this homey Home owned by the same loving family for over 50 years. Impeccably maintained systems- the next owner benefits by a new roof, new heater, new boiler... and knowing how adored this treasure of a property remains to the generations it has and will serve. The 2nd and 3rd levels offer 6+ rooms for a myriad of uses: Bedrooms, Home Office, Art and 'Dance' Studios, a useful second Kitchette, storage galore (see included 3D Virtual Tour for Home's complete creative layout)...+-3.5+ Baths serve- authentically appointed and expertly tiled (Clawfoot bathtime, anyone?). Competition for 'the star' room upstairs, however, just might be the expansive Primary En Suite w/ Morning Room- w/ Carrera marbled mantle, bookshelves, gleaming refinished floors, and birds-eye perch through the French doors to views of the canopy trees for which this lovely East Oak Lane neighborhood is known: "The lungs of Philadelphia." Though one might never wish to leave the gorgeous interior- outdoor living abounds at 6653 Lawnton with a huge fenced back yard, slate terrace, and a two-car Garage/ Carriage House w/ original Gardner's 'toilette' (someone please restore- so cute!). Supported by an engaged Community of neighbors with the Oak Lane Tree Tenders; the Civic Association, OLCAA; plus The Friends of the Oak Lane Library- this area is special. A commuters paradise as the Regional Rail is a short walking jaunt- 4 stops to Center City then straight onto the Airport- enjoy low City Taxes AND amazing Suburban shopping in directly adjacent Montgomery County.
