Mount Airy is named after one of the area's first historic summer estates, and this home pays homage to its roots with its spacious, airy floorplan and stately historic details, while its recent renovations have an artsy vibe that the neighborhood is now known for. This stone twin with detached two-car garage has room after sun-soaked room with original oak flooring and millwork alongside custom updates well-suited for contemporary living. Enter either through the sweet front patio into the stately-but-not-stuffy living room with exposed-beam ceilings, decorative moldings and original fireplace flanked by custom built-in bookcases, or via the side entrance off the driveway, getting your first glimpse of the gleaming original oak parquet flooring with inlay and grand center staircase. Head into the dining room with a large bank of windows, wainscoting, stylish light fixture and dramatic arched nook deep enough for a bar or sitting area if credenzas aren't your thing. The half bath features a custom corner vanity built from reclaimed wood from the house. Continue back into the huge eat-in kitchen featuring a center island with slide-in range and sleek architectural range hood, marble countertops, pretty royal blue tile backsplash, and stainless steel appliances and farmhouse sink. There's an original built-in alcove cupboard, and the sellers added a complementary bank of cabinets and floating shelves to create the sweetest coffee station along with a large pantry. From here you can access the finished basement, which also has a walkout entrance and half bath. Up on the second story, the master bedroom has lovely natural light from two exposures and a luxurious en-suite bath with deep walk-in shower featuring frameless glass door, rainfall showerhead and subway tile surround with mosaic inset shelving. Down the hall are three more bedrooms, all equally as bright and with ample closet space, including one with a custom barn door and original built-in bookshelves. They share a hall bath with timeless finishes, subway tile tub surround and a sleek flat-front vanity. There's a lovely front garden to exercise your green thumb, as well as greenspace to enjoy in the back alongside the garage. In an area rich with great community spirit, year-round activities, beautiful murals, an always-expanding food scene, excellent schools and quick access to both nature and Center City, Mount Airy truly offers it all.
