Property Description

This Italinate-style farmhouse, c. 1859, known as the "Bickings House" was built by John Bickings, a master carpenter. Many of its original architectual features have been preserved by proud homeowners over the years. Look for the unique ball finials along the front cornace and other crafted details as you explore inside. Although well-preserved and historic this home has evolved with up-dates to the kitchen, bathrooms and the installation of central a/c. The large living room has several built-in bookcases and a wood-burning fireplace. The comfortable rear porch overlooks the yard and perimeter gardens. The kitchen is well-designed with a breakfast area, views of the rear garden and easy access to the street. The basement has a comfortable "hangout room" for tv and games and a door to the outside. There is also a laundry/mechanical room and a workshop with plenty of storage shelving. The back yard has many beautiful trees such as blue spruce, spirea, hinoki, holly, magnolia, cypress and cherry! Located in the heart of Chesnut Hill you will be steps away from Weavers Way Food Coop, and the many quaint shops along Germantown Ave., as well as two commuter rail lines. Be sure to see this delightful 160+ year old home!
