Property Description

A perfect blend of an 'Old World Tudor' meeting a classic 'Old School' Philadelphia Neighborhood- this leafy and inviting 3+ BR, 2.5 Bath Home with Garage and fenced Yard is a real treat - it certainly delivers! Handsomely nestled on tree-lined Godfrey Avenue near where the City meets Montgomery County. Fisher's Park is a 'stone's throw,' with its rolling hills, canopy trees, tennis courts, and an award-winning Community garden but just 1 lovely block away. A commuter's paradise with the Fernrock Regional Rail and Subway nearby (Phillie's game, anyone?), or drive right into your own Garage in the rear; there's 'always a spot' at your front door too! Enter this special place through a charming, gated Patio; encounter a welcoming Vestibule with its stately, original 1930's Door. Onward into your lovely and private, freshly and professionally painted interiors; gorgeous moldings everywhere accentuate the spacious and well-connected rooms. An expansive Living Room with impressive, decorative mantle housing a gas fireplace, turns the corner to a cozy Library / Sunroom with a panoramic view. The formal Dining Room beyond extends to a huge and friendly Eat-in Kitchen complete with tall ceilings, stainless appliances, and timeless Oak cabinetry. Meandering through the manageable two stories are both sophisticated Parquet with Mahogany inlaid floors, as well as hardwood old-growth Oak. Well-built authenticity greets throughout with coveted Casement windows still intact, and Art Deco carved detailing such as those untouched Maple doors- just remarkable! Two Stunningly tiled Baths serve the three large Bedrooms above. The Newly parged Basement below has three separate semi-finished spaces (again those awesome doors, and w/ huge Cedar closets!), which delight the design imagination: perhaps an added Guest Room, Office, Media, Rec, or Artist space... An exterior masonry staircase is directly accessible to the fenced yard, with its magnificent mature Japanese Red Maple- Oh, My! That surrounding original wrought iron is a keeper! A buffering heirloom Holly stands at attention out front, manageable Perennial gardens further beautify. Plenty of Sun- right outside the back Kitchen door- offers potential for potted or raised-bed Veggie growing as well! Shop in nearby Suburbs or along culturally vibrant N. 5th St. Come to greener pastures where fantastic Olney meets historic East Oak Lane- a nifty area of the City's Northern Neighborhoods, for sure!
