Presenting one of Chestnut Hill~s premiere estates. La Primavera: the name evokes ~ a light and happy aura ~ spring.~ ~Robert McGoodwin~s design for the idyllic site on the edge of the park reminds a viewer of an Italian hillside villa, but only when viewed from behind. From the street, a protected court shows only a discreet arched entry door and a simple rusticity with only a hint of Italian precedents.~ This Italianate country house sits on 4.37 acres of land with the most beautiful views of the Wissahickon Valley and Fairmount Park. With its tall trees and open tiered lawns, superbly built stone walls, multiple terraces and low maintenance planting it is an idyllic setting for any house. Meticulously maintained during their ownership, these Sellers are proud of keeping this property up to the standard that it deserves. The grounds, the trees, the pool, the tennis court, the cottage, and the systems have been painstakingly overseen over the years and it shows! This is in many ways a perfect sized house with two floors of living space, yet room for home office, storage, hobbies, and relaxation.The front cobblestone courtyard welcomes you with a newly refurbished landscape plan by Elise Geyelin. The double door entrance with arched window above opens to a lovely entrance hall with a limestone floor. The entrance to the grand formal Living Room with fireplace and three sets of French doors draw you to the spectacular green woodland view beyond. The first floor plan is balanced with a stunning Library with built-in bookshelves, fireplace, parquet floor and exquisite original detail. On the other side of the Living Room is a similar sized Dining Room, also with fireplace. Both of these rooms extend out to two separate Sun Porch Rooms which take in the dramatic views of Fairmount Park. There are all the additional spaces one needs for comfortable living including the powder room, large mud room, multiple closets, and Pantry with original glass cabinetry and every amenity which add to this perfect first floor layout. But the heart of the home is truly the Kitchen. With its four exposures, it is constantly filled with exceptional light and cheeriness from sunrise to sunset. Custom built cabinetry, granite counters, and every appliance possible including a Viking commercial six burner gas range with double ovens and hood, SubZero refrigerator/freezer, two sinks and additional wall ovens and microwave. All are in an open setting with a large comfortable Family Room. The layout of the first floor is perfect for small, medium and large scale dinner parties and entertaining.
