Description

One-of-a-kind location, one-of-a-kind house, "Andorra House," is an exquisitely updated center hall stone Colonial nestled in one of the area's most desirable locations. Located just steps from the Northwestern end of historic Forbidden Drive and offering exceptional access to both the wonderful amenities of Chestnut Hill and the Wissahickon Valley section of Fairmount Park. Originally designed by noted architect Robert McGoodwin and built for William Harper, owner of Andorra Nursery. Once surrounded by several hundred acres, the home is filled with many original details including multiple fireplaces, high ceilings, gorgeous woodwork, exceptional moldings and deep windowsills, along with many modern updates; this home offers gracious spaces for everyday living and entertaining. Light-filled grand center entrance hall; large formal dining room with fireplace; living room with custom lighting, built-ins, gas burning fireplace and multiple French doors; study with fireplace and access to the large covered porch with fireplace. A totally renovated gourmet kitchen, with Viking and Sub-Zero appliances, Carrara marble countertops and radiant heated slate floors with adjoining sunlit breakfast room are perfect spaces for family gatherings. The rear bar room/den, a convenient mud room and rear powder room offer easy access to the attached garage and a separate, large, one bedroom in-law suite with recently renovated kitchen. The spacious master suite with fireplace offers an updated bath with dual vanity, attached dressing room/sitting room with fireplace and ample closet space. There are two additional bedrooms, each with ensuite baths, and a second floor laundry. The third floor offers three bedrooms, a media room with surround sound, two hall baths and crafts room. All set on 1.62 lovely landscaped acres, this absolutely immaculate home is conveniently located and move-in ready. Don't let this treasure pass you by!
