Welcome to "Little Garth" at 7401 Cresheim Road in West Mount Airy, surrounded by the Wissahickon Valley Park and Trails. Originally built in the 1920s, in the farmhouse style , reminiscent of the French countryside, for artist/illustrator Elizabeth Shippen Green and her husband, Huger Elliott, an architect and former president of the Philadelphia Museum of Art. A fine architectural treasure, this exquisite residence underwent a comprehensive renovation in 2015. Current owners have made their mark with upgrades that include radiant heating system for the kitchen and living room and new third-floor bath. You will love every inch of this fabulous home, beautifully sited on .62 acres. The traditional floor plan offers +-5620 square feet, ideal for today's preferred lifestyle. 4/5 bedrooms, 3 full and 1 half bath. Newer kitchen, butler's pantry with wine storage, and generous eat-in area just begging for a long farm table. Formal dining room, sunroom/office ideal for those working from home. Super cozy library with fireplace and generous built-in cabinetry. The living room, originally set up as the artist's studio is loaded with light and offers soaring 10+ foot ceilings and large fireplace. Upstairs, on two floors, you will find the owner's suite with ample closetry and primary bath. 3/4 additional bedrooms and 2 baths. Second-floor laundry is a treat. The lower level offers lots of space for storage and could be partially finished in the future. Outside, two separate terraces and lovely woodland gardens. This is a rare combination of a classic Philadelphia home with all the modern amenities you could wish for, a short drive to Mount Airy or Chestnut Hill, 30 minutes to Philadelphia, and 90 minutes to Manhattan. Showings to start Saturday 3/6
