Description for 232 Pelham Road Philadelphia, PA 19119
A spectacular house! 232 Pelham Road is one of the premier residences of the historic Pelham neighborhood of West Mt. Airy. One of the nation's first planned communities where some of the nation's finest architects were commissioned in the 1890's to design large family homes, Pelham was marketed then as a "suburban" residential enclave. This particular 3-story stone Tudor style home was designed by Boyd & Boyd for William P.M.Braun, the head of his family's firm, the Pennsylvania Lawn Mower Company. Today, the architectural detail, the oak and mahogany woodwork, the grand staircase graced with spectacular stained glass windows at the landing, handsome wainscot, high ceilings are all still there. Today's buyer will also be pleased by the up-to-date eat-in kitchen, the new central air conditioning on the 2nd and 3rd floors, the energy-saving wood stoves, the upgraded systems, the airy comfortable living spaces throughout. 6-8 bedrooms and 4 1/2 baths. 1st floor: Broad open wrap-around porch; entry foyer leads to a spacious entry hall with sweet sitting bench under leaded glass window, closet, pellet stove, and powder room toward the rear and the beginning of a truly magnificent center staircase; 16x27 stunning, south-facing music room with marble fireplace with wood-burning stove insert, bay window that streams sunshine, original sconces, pocket doors; family room with another wood stove; formal dining room, 15x31, that will accommodate any festive gathering, offers exquisite strapwork ceilings and gives access to wrap-around porch; laundry room, butler pantry with working antique server's sink and storage; eat-in kitchen with granite counters, electric cooking, garbage disposal, dishwasher, enormous pantry storage, recessed lighting, wood stove and mini-split for heating and cooling; exit to glass-enclosed porch and rear gardens. 2nd floor: master bedroom suite with 2 large rooms and master bath; 2 more large bedrooms; hall bath; turret room with sauna; 18x21 family/game room filled with natural light and surrounded by windows on 3 sides. 3rd floor: 5 good-sized bedrooms and 2 full baths along with access to a broad, sunny deck that offers views of the grounds and neighborhood. Basement is ull, unfinished for utilities, storage and work areas and has outside exit. Special things to know: CENTRAL AIR ON 2ND AND 3RD FLOORS, mini-splits in the kitchen and in the game room on the 2nd floor; life on the wrap-around porch in the warm weather is delightful; the music room is large enough to hold a grand piano; all the windows on the 3rd floor are new; the front porch roof, the roof over the music room bay, and the patio decking are all new; all gutters and downspouts have been repaired and re-hung; all flue liners are new; ALL KNOB & TUBE WIRING HAS BEEN REPLACED or de-activated.
