$1,250,000  |  5 E CHESTNUT HILL AVENUE, PHILADELPHIA, PA 19118
Filled with eloquence and everlasting history, this exquisite six bedroom Wissahickon schist mansion is a true icon of Chestnut Hill architecture. Often referred to as the Samuel Austin House, 5 E. Chestnut Hill Ave was converted from farmland into an Italianate-style building, designed to overlook the prestigious corner of Germantown and Chestnut Hill Avenues. Formerly owned by various notable occupants, including renowned architect, Norman Hulme, and Chestnut Hill Academy founder, Joshua Owen, this home has been lovingly maintained since its establishment. The next steward of this residence can maintain the property’s existing layout to feature five separate units or transform the establishment into a dream-worthy single family home. Many original building features have been preserved, including several ornate fireplaces, hardwood floors, elegant oversized windows, and lavish living spaces. Just off of the main level, entertain with ease thanks to a spacious back deck showcasing vistas of the property’s wooded grounds. At one time, the lower level was used as a doctors office by a distinguished physician in the local community. The addition of a brick garage with antique barn doors provides bonus recreation space that can be utilized to satisfy your vision. Six generously sized bedrooms provide plenty of space to work from home or host friends and family. Whether you completely customize this structure for personal use or maximize the investment potential, this memorable property provides extraordinary opportunity in one of most unique neighborhoods around. Located in the heart of the village, residents can enjoy excellent shops and conveniences nestled upon Germantown Avenue. Lovely restaurants, cafes, businesses, schools, and public transportation options are all readily available. The beautiful footpaths of Wissahickon Valley are just steps away making it hard to believe you are still inside Philadelphia proper. Endless potential truly awaits you.
