REMARKS:

Romance is alive and well at 6314 Wissahickon. From the well-trod front path, laid with brick; to the glassy Koi pond with water splashing from the "lion-head" fountain; this property echos peace, tranquility, oasis. The original structure shows up on maps of the area from the early 1800s, but the house was substantially expanded and rebuilt in the 1930s. What a gem! From the sidewalk, head up the brick front walkway to a covered front entry. The door opens to a grand entry hall, suitable for chamber music or hip-hop. The focal point of the foyer is the open, elegant, turned staircase. Complete with ionic columns, coat closet, palladian window, and glistening floors, the foyer is simply stunning. Once standing in the entryway, one turns right to the living room and kitchen, or left to the dining room, and sunporch. The living room (which could easily become the dining room putting it closer to the kitchen) is a warm, elegant room with a wood burning fireplace, glass-fronted closet, french doors, built-in shelving, and entryway to kitchen. Step into a welcoming, sophisticated, and serious cook's kitchen, redone in 2007 with pine floors, Viking range with pot filler spigot above, two sinks, beautiful honed limestone counters, and an island set with butcher block. On party days, you'll make full use of the adjacent mudroom/pantry with third sink, second dishwasher, storage closets, and powder room. There is a exit to a covered porch and backyard from the mudroom. To round out the first floor, turn left from the entry into a comfortable dining room with bay window, and ever-useful built-in shelving. From the dining room enter the charming brick-floored sun porch with multiple doors to the back garden and views of the green landscape. All bedrooms (count four or five depending on how one uses the present dressing room) are on the second floor. At the top of the main staircase, turn left to the master suite that occupies one end of the house. During renov
