In the heart of Chestnut Hill, this bright and wide 1950's rowhouse is sited on a quiet block with a public park across the street. The four steps that lead you off the sidewalk provide privacy from the street and make the front yard, surrounded by a privacy edge, a perfect spot to relax . This solid three bedroom, 1 1/2 bath house, with its gleaming hardwood floors, and newer windows, feels light and airy. As you come up the steps to the front door, to the left is a patio with room for your grill and outdoor furniture. From the front door you enter a spacious living room, with a large window overlooking the front yard. This light-filled space has beautifully finished oak floors, and a coat closet for necessities. The essential powder room is on the left, as you walk from the living room into the dining room. The dining room has a double-window, and a stylish pendant light . The first floor is open, well designed, and coherent. The staircase opposite the front door leads to the second floor with three bedrooms, one bath, a linen closet, and a spacious landing. The primary bedroom sits at the front of the house, and has plenty of closet space and wall space for bed and furnishings. The two additional bedrooms are at the back of the house. One is currently used as an office. The bathroom, accessed from the second floor hallway, is situated between the primary bedroom and the two in the back. The basement is located through a doorway in the kitchen. At the bottom of the staircase is a large room presently used as a gym. Down the wide hallway is the laundry, the HVAC system, and the exit to the outside. The bonus is the one car garage with automatic door opener. There is a common driveway in the back that serves several houses. Across the driveway is an additional piece of land that belongs to the property. This lovely Winston Road row is walking distance to train, bus, shopping/dining on Germantown Ave., parks, and recreation. Walls, floors, ceilings, and windows are pristine. As you know, this one won't last long.
