Description

This remarkable one-of-a-kind home is the fusion of an 1850+GGs Stone Barn, a 1900+GGs Carriage House and a new open spacious design, with morning, midday and evening light and many remaining original barn features. One of the remarkable features of this house is the artistic imagination that many of the open well lighted rooms would lend themselves to. On the first floor there are two large rooms, now being used for a family room and a painting studio that both have high ceilings that could be used for ceramics, woodworking, sculpture, or any other projects requiring a large well-lit space. There is also a guest suite on the first floor with a kitchenette that has a separate entrance that could be an Air B and B, nanny or in law space. The second floor living room with its original board pine flooring and dining room with a newer hardwood floor both have expansive wall space that lend them the feeling of an art gallery, dance, or performance art space. The barn cupola is exposed and lets in lots of additional natural light that filters down into the dining area with a working wood stove and thick deep slate windowsills. The surrounding trees on several sides of the house give you the feel of a tree house while letting in lots of natural light on the other sides. There are smaller spaces throughout the house that will lend themselves to many possibilities, office space, meditation rooms or just a quiet place to retreat from the outside world. This property can be adapted to almost any creative endeavor you could desire. The possibilities: are endless. Come see your dreams come true with the outdoor and indoor areas that are ready for your imagination to expand. And on the more practical side this house has been meticulously maintained with five zones for heat and ac you can modify easily for different needs and comfort levels. The kitchen has new honed quartz counter tops, new GE oven and range with a laundry room and lots of pantry space. The powder room+GGs artisan made copper sink+GGs countertop is sourced from one of the property+GGs own trees. The deck is planked with TREX and the upstairs bedrooms have new automated skylights with shades. The water treatment system has been updated, the house had a new roof, installed in March 2020 along with gutter guards. In 2015 fiber/cement Hartie planks were installed on the exterior; the old barn+GGs field stone was repointed by master masons; and the interior walls and trim were just painted in 2020. There is a working invisible fence, encompassing the entire acre for your canine family members. There is a new driveway gate. Come see for yourself a space to relax, work, play and create that is close to Philadelphia and within walking distance of Fort Washington State Park, and the Green Ribbon Trail. There are also nearby hiking and biking in the neighborhood and the Fairmount/Wissahickon Park Systems. You are a few minutes+GG drive to the PA Turnpike, Train Station and Germantown Academy.
