$1,621,000 7305 Emlen Street, Philadelphia, PA 19119

Welcome to 7305 Emlen Street; an exquisite estate in the iconic and coveted French Village in West Mount Airy. Well known Philadelphia architect, Robert McGoodwin, collaborated with early real estate developer, Dr. George Woodward, to create and develop the French Village: 24 estate style homes inspired by the farmsteads and mansions of 1920s Europe. Nestled on the hillside and set far back from the street, 7305 Emlen is situated on an acre of beautifully landscaped grounds with multiple entertaining spaces, gardens, and a large, in ground, heated, saltwater swimming pool, making one of the grandest estate homes in this rarely offered community. Enter the front door into a generous foyer, flanked by the expansive living room and library, each with a fireplace, original ornate moulding, and bright natural light. The first floor features a sunroom, half bath, and formal dining room large enough for a 12-seat table, all with original hardwood floors and beautifully maintained original windows. The fabulous chef's kitchen, which was completely remodeled in 2018, features an oversized marble island perfect for large gatherings, high-end appliances including a Wolf range and Sub-Zero refrigerator, and colorful modern accents. Of the home's many upgrades, adjacent to the kitchen is a smartly designed mudroom with built in storage for the whole family, as well as a butler's pantry complete with a desk perfect for sorting household business. Ascending the grand curved staircase you will find the second floor offers four spacious bedrooms and four full bathrooms, three of them en suite. The large, recently renovated main bedroom includes a functional walk-in closet and beautifully designed, large bathroom featuring marble shower, soaking tub and dual sinks. The third floor has three additional bedrooms, a den, and another full bath. The expansive, unfinished basement covers the entire footprint of the home with plenty of space for storage, utilities and a workshop. For those looking for even more space, above the 2-car garage you will find a carriage house, currently unused, but ready to be transformed into an artists studio, future guest suite, or the ultimate work from home getaway. 7305 Emlen Street has been meticulously cared for and boasts fabulous architectural detail throughout while offering state of the art technology, full knob and tube remediation, and central air on the first two floors. Steps away from the Wissahickon Park and the Chestnut Hill West Regional Rail, 7305 Emlen provides grand estate living just moments from everything Mt Airy, Chestnut Hill and Center City have to offer.
