Built in 1888 by the Houston family as part of the development following the Pennsylvania Railroad extension to Chestnut Hill, the Hewitt Brothers created a group of houses at the end of St. Martins Lane. The stone houses, one of which is 7711 St. Martins Lane, are filled with character and original details of the Victorian era. The spaces are charming, yet large with bright sunny rooms throughout. The previous owner was a gardener and the yard is filled with perennials, mature planting, a small pond and a greenhouse located off the back of the one car garage. There are two bays in the front of the house in the Living Room, which also has a fireplace and built in bookshelves, and the Master Bedroom. The first floor layout also includes a Dining Room, an eat-in Kitchen and a large Utility room with a powder room. The second floor has three nice sized Bedrooms with two bathrooms and the Third floor a similar layout. The outdoor spaces include a covered porch, a flagstone patio, a greenhouse and a large yard. The house needs updating but could be the perfect location for the person who wants to walk to everything in Chestnut Hill. This is a wonderful opportunity to renovate and update in your own personal style.
