Description

Welcome to 610 Gate House Lane. Sited on the edge of Fairmount Park, this custom home designed by Philadelphia Architect Cecil Baker is surrounded by nature with expansive green vistas overlooking the park. This exceptional property was originally part of the adjacent Krisheim Estate, home to the Houston family: the original planners and developers of Chestnut Hill. It is truly a magical setting with unmatched privacy and serenity yet a short walk to Chestnut Hill's wonderful shops and restaurants and easy access to Center City. This contemporary gem offers sweeping open spaces, soaring vaulted ceilings and light filled rooms all oriented to bring the outdoors in. This is the open floorplan we all want! The step down living room with fireplace and oversized sliding doors to a brick patio. The cozy family room with charming wood burning stove overlooks the living room and is adjacent to the kitchen. The kitchen area includes a center island, all newer Bosch appliances and space for a large kitchen table next to a wall of sliding glass doors that lead to an elevated deck overlooking the treetops. The Dining room is a versatile space that can be used as a library, gallery or whatever you see fit. The powder room and laundry room off the kitchen complete the first floor. The lower level has a large finished room with separate storage room and mechanical room. The second floor includes the main bedroom suite and three additional bedrooms and a hall bath. The main suite includes a large en-suite bath, many closets, sliding doors to its own private deck and stairs that lead to a loft/office area with room for storage, yoga etc.... The loft space has a huge skylight that floods the space with light perfect for sun salutations and nighttime moon gazing! Two of the hall bedrooms include loft areas, as well. Rarely does an opportunity await to own a home on 1.5 Acres in one of the most private locations on Fairmount Park in Philadelphia's Chestnut Hill .
