375 Pelham Road sits on almost a quarter-acre lot in the historic Pelham district of West Mount Airy and presents you with an opportunity to apply your creativity and vision as you make this home your own. Built around 1920, this lovely 3,020 sqft Georgian Colonial home features stone construction, a gambrel roof, and a columned portico entry. Begin your tour in the large center hall which successfully connects the entirety of the first floor living space, providing an open feel and flow. The stairs are set back and include a landing which frees up space in the hallway, making it feel as if it were its own room. To the right is the spacious living room running the full length (25 feet) of the home. This living room features recessed lights, a stone fireplace (gas, non-functional) flanked by twin French doors to the porch, deep windowsills, lovely woodwork, and picture frame wainscoting. Across the hall and to the left is a generous dining room with deep sills and a chair rail. The kitchen is situated next to the dining room and can be accessed both from the center hall as well as from the dining room through a converted butlers’ pantry that currently serves as a 1st floor laundry. The kitchen features gas cooking, a peninsula for additional counter and cabinet space, plus a breakfast area, and access to the 1st floor powder room as well as access to the back yard and patio. Notice the small niche door between the back door and the powder room; we understand that this original feature was intended for fresh milk deliveries. Hardwood floors are found throughout the first and second levels. The second-floor bedroom floors include a tasteful walnut inlay surround. This level includes a large primary suite with dressing room, cedar closet, and tiled bath with a stall shower. Two additional 2nd floor bedrooms, a sunroom with built-in bookcases, and an updated hall bath with subway tile and a shower over tub complete this level. The stairs to the third floor include a landing with a built-in bench. The third-floor houses two additional rooms, one with a large cedar closet. Also on the third floor is a non-functioning, three-piece bath with classic clawfoot tub. This home includes a full size, unfinished basement with plenty of headroom and room for storage. Long ago connected to the Pelham central steam plant for heat, this home currently sports a brand new (2022) gas-fired, steam heat boiler. The electric water heater is also new (2022). Out back is a large 2-car carriage house.
Conveniently located to the Germantown Avenue commercial district as well as West Mount Airy favorites like the High Point Café, Weavers Way Co-op, and Carpenters Woods. This location really delivers, especially when you throw in easy access to Septa’s regional rail, local bus routes, Lincoln Drive, and the trails of the Wissahickon.
