This uniquely American mid century modernist masterpiece was designed by noted Philadelphia architect Harry Sternfeld. Influenced by both art deco and the style of Frank Lloyd Wright, this 4 bedroom, 3.5 bath home brings the outdoors inside and is nestled on nearly 3/4 of an acre. Walking into the foyer, you are greeted by a view of the Sternfeld signature East facing "wall of windows" which extends from the living room through the dining room. Immediately to the right, you will find a private and conveniently located space for a professional office and a first floor powder room. Continuing into the living room, you will be amazed by the natural light and immaculate hardwood floors and paneled walls that are found throughout the home. The wood burning fireplace set in a stone accent wall is a unique focal point utilizing more elements of nature. The dining room is large enough for hosting events and continues through to the eat-in kitchen. Prepare chef quality meals in the top of the line kitchen including a gas Viking range. Beyond the kitchen you will find a large family, game room with another fireplace perfect for hosting more casual get togethers. Upstairs you will find a large main bedroom with an en suite bath featuring soaking tub and separate shower.

Airy, this architecturally significant home in an unparalleled location won't last long. Short walk to the Weavers Way Cooperative, High Point Cafe and the trails of the Wissahickon.
