    Description

    Welcome to 54 Summit Street in the historic Chestnut Hill section of Philadelphia! Built in 1876 by William W. Harding on one of Chestnut Hill's first historic streets, this stone Victorian Gothic boasts 6 bedrooms, 2 and half baths, cathedral ceilings, floor to ceiling bay windows and gorgeous hardwood floors throughout the home. Let's take a walk inside and imagine the history of the home! Walking up the slate stone path, we step on to the front porch with its stone arches and view of the beautifully landscaped front yard (imagine sitting here watching the sunsets). Opening the front door and entering the foyer, you are immediately welcomed by the hardwood floors and regal staircase. To your left is the large living room with its cathedral ceilings and floor to ceiling windows. Walking through the living room, you enter the parlor with its pocket doors and marble fireplace. Just imagine the entertaining that happened in these rooms. Heading to the kitchen, you pass by the updated half bath. The kitchen features stainless steel appliances, Quartz countertops and hardwood floors. Next, you enter the dining room with its floor to ceiling windows and hardwood floors - what a great room for dinner parties! Walking up the grand staircase to the light filled second floor, you will first find a reading nook or meditation space, whichever you prefer. On the second floor, you find the master bedroom with sitting area, two additional bedrooms and a full bath with claw-foot tub (nice to soak in after a long day's work). Heading up to the 3rd floor, you find a full bath, 3 additional bedrooms that can be used as an office, game room, family or bedroom. This home is located close to the shops and restaurants on the cobblestone streets of Germantown Avenue, the Trails of Wissahickon (Fairmount Park), Pennsylvania Turnpike, Route 309 and Philadelphia Regional Rails (hop on the Chestnut Hill East line and head to Center City Philadelphia for Museums, Dining and the Arts or take the train to 30th Street Station and grab Amtrack for a quick ride to New York City).
