Description for 7318 Boyer Street Philadelphia, PA 19119
Rare find offered on one of the most sought after blocks in Mt Airy. This Gowen Estate House was designed by Frank Furness in 1885,& built the same year by Francis Innes Gowen & the Tourison Brothers. This House reflects aspects of the Victorian "Stick" & the "Queen Anne" building styles & still maintains many of the period details. One enters this 6 bedroom, 3.5 bath wood shaker & Wissahickon Shist home's gracious entry hall through the original Dutch door. To the left is a large sitting room used as a library, with a brick fireplace. To the right is a generously proportioned living room with a bay window overlooking Boyer St & a pair of French doors that lead to a screened-in porch. The fireplace in this room displays a collection of Henry Mercer tiles that surround the firebox, with 6 glazed figurative tiles for which he has remained famous. Straight down the hall, passing the back stairway, to the right is a lovely appointed dining room with a built-in china cabinet & another set of French doors leading to the enclosed porch. Through the swinging door you enter the sunny, expansive kitchen with brand new stainless steel appliances, island with granite counter top, double sink, bar sink, gas cooking & wood cabinets with more storage then you could ever want! Glass sliding doors lead out of the kitchen into a separate, private side porch, great for barbecues or just relaxing with a good book. Through the kitchen we enter the large Butler's pantry/breakfast room,complete with built-ins, wainscotting & a half bath, plus a door leading out to the large back yard. Up the front stairs to the 2nd floor you will find a full hall bath with deep tub, original subway tiles & mosaic floor, flanked by 2 good sized bedrooms on either side, one with a fireplace. Turn & you will see the large, bright master bedroom, complete with en-suite bath. 2 steps down is a 2nd floor laundry room with built-in cabinets. The 3rd floor encompasses 3 more lovely bedrooms & a full bath with glass-enclosed shower & tile floor. Hardwood floors throughout, plus a gorgeous slate front porch & deep front, side & back yards make this truly the perfect home. Zoned gas heating, newly parged basement, plus close to transportation, shopping, restaurants & everything Mount Airy AND Chestnut Hill have to offer make this the complete package. Don't miss out!! SUBJECT TO SUBDIVISION APPROVAL. Sq Footage is approximate, RE Taxes TBD.
