About 422 W MORELAND Avenue

Welcome to this exceptional house in a premier location in historic Chestnut Hill. Built in 1922, this Seeburger & Rabenold designed brick Georgian is a standout among the residences created by this renowned architectural team. While the current owners have fully modernized the house, many original details were painstakingly preserved during the full house renovation in 2010. Significant updates were made with a commitment to maintaining the original intent of the house. This successful melding of old and new has created a truly special residence. The gracious front facade of matching gabled wings and pedimented portico with sweeping front lawn create a spectacular entrance to what is, essentially, a warm family home updated to accommodate today's lifestyles. The interiors are highlighted by detailed crown moldings, lovely wainscoting and significant millwork, large cased openings between rooms, high ceilings, and beautiful large windows which allow natural light to flood the spaces. The large entrance hall is fully open to the large and elegantly proportioned living room with its wall of windows, permitting expansive views of the flagstone terraces, gardens, and swimming pool. This stunning vista allows appreciation of the exceptionally spacious, private grounds which surround the home. The living room is flanked on one side by a sitting room with built-ins, a garden room with antique marble floors, and fully outfitted small greenhouse. On the other side of the living room there is a large formal dining room, kitchen, and family room. The eat-in chef's kitchen has been enlarged and fully customized, providing plenty of space for more intimate entertaining and casual day to day living. With an abundance of counter space, Wolf stove, 2 sinks, refrigerator and warming drawers, this sophisticated space with radiant heated floors is the heart of the home. An elegant staircase ascends to the second floor where a large space perfect for studying or watching tv creates a central gathering area. The master suite on the has a fireplace, extra large walk-in closet and his and hers baths, both with beautiful tilework and radiant heated floors. There are four more large bedrooms on this level, all with fully updated bathrooms. There is a third floor with bedroom, playroom, cedar closets, and abundant storage. Finally, the full basement is partially finished with wine storage for 1000+ bottles and a pool room with outside access. This one of a kind property presents a unique opportunity to live in a turn key, architecturally significant residence set in beautiful grounds in convenient, yet private, walk to town location with easy access to train, dining, shopping, and Center City Philadelphia.
