    Description

    This beautiful estate farmhouse is located in the Pine Valley section of Philadelphia, is perfect for anyone who enjoys both living close to nature and city attractions/conveniences. Once owned by George Horace Lorimer as his summer retreat, this magnificent home dates back to the turn of the century. Deed on record says the home was built in the 1920's, but the current owner obtained the deed that shows this home was purchased by Lorimer in 1910. There are 4 bedrooms, 4.5 baths in the main house and 2 additional (updated 2017) bedrooms and a bathroom with large stall-shower and heated floors in the carriage house. The carriage house is great for extended family or guests and is above an oversized 1 car garage. This one of a kind property has been beautifully maintained and is move-in ready. With a newer roof, windows and new multi-zone HVAC system (2017) this 4632 sq/ft. home has been updated to improve its efficiency and make it desirable for people that are conscious about natural living. Chemical fertilizers and pesticides have not been used on the property by the current owner. The fenced rear yard is private and has a resort-style, stone appointed, 35,000 gallon in-ground pool with built-in hot tub. The pool is freshly painted, heated and has a brand-new filter system, pump and safety cover. A glass sun-room with Moravian tile floors and beveled glass windows serves as a retreat from the ordinary. It is a warm place to soak in some vitamin D while reading your favorite book. The master bedroom and bathroom are large and quite romantic. The 2nd floor also has a junior master suite with an updated bathroom with new plumbing. All upgrades in this home have been done, 'the right way' so as to preserve this home's beauty and integrity. The 3rd floor is perfect for storage or it has the potential to be a large 2 bedroom suite with an additional bathroom that was plumbed into the existing cedar closet in 2017. Exquisite landscaping attracts all the beautiful birds and butterflies of the season. This heirloom home is located on a quiet, safe, cul du sac which is in close proximity to Greenberg Elementary (ranked 7/10 GreatSchools.com). A large eat-in, modern, kitchen with professional Five Star stove, granite tile counter-tops and a view of the yard and pool make it perfect for entertaining or watching children swim and play. The fenced, private yard is perfect for families with children and/or dogs.The craftsmanship and quality of the crown molding throughout the home could not be replicated today. The original wide plank pegged hardwood floors are in good condition and are virtually indestructible. Carpets and wallpaper have recently been removed in bedrooms which revealed these beautiful floors, throughout the 1st and 2nd floors. There are 3 working fireplaces; one in the dining room, living room and a coal hearth in the basement that confirms the true age of this home. The basement has tons of storage and potential for a bar, theater or play area. Make your appointment today!
