One of industrialist Henry Houston’s very first investments in 1886 that triggered the growth of little rural Chestnut Hill to eventually become one of America’s premier residential communities. 6 bedrooms, 3 1/2 baths with upgraded airy gourmet kitchen, stunning random width pine floors, 3 story turret with balcony offering lush, serene views of nearby Fairmount Park and the Wissahickon Creek. French doors lead to private fenced patio, lawns and landscaped gardens. Garage. This residence is as attractive today as when it was built, and it sits in an enviable location walkable to shops, notable restaurants and commuter train. In just a short walk, one can enter the Wissahickon Watershed with miles of hiking, biking and horseback riding trails. In the city of Philadelphia with a small village feeling!
