Description for 6935 Scotforth Road Philadelphia, PA 19119
Designed in 1926, "Woods Edge" was built as the private residence of Walter Mellor, principal architect of the renowned Philadelphia firm of Mellor, Meigs and Howe, on a serene road bordering the Wissahickon Valley. At just under 6000 square feet, this stately 6 bed / 6.5 bath home has the signature elements associated with the Norman Revival "country manor" architectural style: extensive use of wood paneling; wood and slate floors; cast stone windows, door frames and floating staircase; paneled doors; vaulted ceilings; balconies; and high-pitched roof lines with tall chimneys and garden walls. The ironwork on the windows, mailbox, staircase, chandeliers and door-knocker is by none other than master craftsman Samuel Yellin. The one-acre grounds are bordered on two sides by stone walls with towers containing storage sheds. The garden is accented by boxwood parterres, a wisteria pergola, and stately oak trees. The former 3-car garage has been finished in stone tiles on the first floor with a bathroom and a sauna, and still has room for 2 cars. On the second level is Mr. Mellor's original home office with a fireplace, Palladian window, oak paneling, vaulted ceiling, kitchenette and full bathroom. This home is serviced by underground utilities and is connected to Philadelphia public water and sewer. The main house has six bedrooms, three with private bathrooms, and a fireplace. There is a hall bathroom on the 3rd floor and a full bath in the basement. While the historical and architectural nuances of this one-of-a-kind home are sure to excite, Woods Edge also offers unbeatable convenience, located nearby several walk-in points of the Wissahickon River, and within walking distance of the many shops and eateries of trendy West Mount Airy. Major routes are within easy reach as well. Homes of this significance do not come up often-make your appointment today!
