This stunning 2400+ sq ft, two-bedroom, two bath condo is a rare gem amidst the run of the mill. Meticulously and lovingly maintained by its long time original owner, the apartment features everything from top of the line appliances - Sub-Zero refrigerator, Bosch dishwasher - to custom cabinetry made by renowned Philadelphia master cabinetmakers Sherman and Gosweiler. The solid walnut and olive ash burl built-in wall unit in the living room is a nearly $30,000 custom-made masterpiece. The solid walnut and white ash custom cabinetry in the den makes for an ideal library, and speaks of luxury and elegance. The very large master bedroom suite, with its wall of windows and lovely balcony, also has its own studio/den off of it, ideal for a private office or creative workspace. The wood flooring in the airy and open living room/dining room space was newly installed in April 2019 at a cost of $12,000. In addition, a brand-new water heater was just installed in the last 2 months, so that’s a $1500 investment you don’t have to worry about for the next 10 years.
Two treetop balconies overlook a pastoral setting, with fiery sunsets and kaleidoscopic foliage during the change of seasons. Because of its prime setting in the building there are window views on three sides of the apartment. While the condo itself provides serene sanctuary, you can also enjoy summers by the association’s pool and the magnificently landscaped grounds year-round. The two covered parking spots that come with the unit make for convenient and safe entry and exit.
As the old adage goes location, location, location is everything and this special condo is a perfect example of that - less than one mile from the nearest SEPTA train station, making center city Philadelphia an easy transit, as well as connections to AMTRAK to head to New York. Willow Grove, Chestnut Hill, Jenkintown, movie theaters, Whole Foods and other shopping are all in close proximity.
Additionally, nearby Abington Hospital has become a major medical hub as part of the Jefferson system. And world-renowned Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) has just opened a brand new 37,000 sq ft outpost in Abington. All part of a growing dynamism and buzz in the Elkins Park area.
This spacious beauty is the definition of understated and tasteful high end living and you’d be hard pressed to find its equal in the area.
