    Description

    A true gem! This Classic Colonial Revival is situated on a double lot on over 2/3 of an acre of private walled grounds with beautiful specimen plantings and perennial gardens, all just steps from the top of the hill in the heart of Chestnut Hill. Upon entering this five-bedroom, five full bath home you are immediately struck by the lovely entry hall with beautiful checked marble floor and original curved stair case with iron railing that opens into an inviting receiving room, both the center of this impeccably designed property. This exceptional flow is perfect for entertaining, with access to the dining room and living room off of the entry hall. The large living room with fireplace, custom built-ins and alcove has a bay window overlooking the exceptional grounds. The warm dining room with built-ins opens into a large eat-in kitchen. The sunlit kitchen is truly the central heartbeat of the home and perfect for all the needs of today's discerning buyer with custom cabinetry, oversized island, breakfast room, sitting room area with built-in desk, powder room, back stair and access to laundry room and mudroom. The first floor also includes a family room with wet bar and sliders to the rear terrace and plunge pool. There is a separate wing with private back office, a greenhouse that doubles as potting shed, and interior access to the garage. Ascend the architectural staircase to the second floor and to the right you will find the renovated owners suite with dressing room, walk-in closets, marble bath with radiant floors and two vanities, all overlooking the exceptional grounds. Two additional bedrooms, each with ample closet space, a renovated hall bath and third bedroom suite with bath round out the main portion of the second floor. As you walk through the fourth bedroom, you access the in-law/au pair suite with additional storage space, bedroom, full bath and private stairs to the first floor. This serene property is impeccably maintained with mature landscaping, multiple exterior terraces and sitting areas, and exterior architectural garden features. Two car garage, two tankless water heaters, multi zone HVAC and much more. All in an exceptional 'walk-to' location, with easy Top of the Hill, Regional Rail and park access, this is an impeccably cared for home - a true oasis on the Avenue.
