On a quiet, wide, leafy street, steps away from the Wissahickon trails, this home is big enough to accommodate everyone and all activities. Built in 1925 on just over 1/3 acre, 619 W. Hortter Street has had some famous tenants: The Von Trapps, on whom The Sound of Music is based, called this house their home when they first arrived in the US after fleeing from Austria in WW2. Owned for the last 28 years by a noted architect, this home has been lovingly cared for and updated without losing any of it's elegant yet substantial character. With loads of closet space and a wealth of built-ins there is room for everything. Through the leaded glass front door into a spacious front hall with an elegant staircase. Pass through the pocket doors into the very grand living room with windows on three sides, a huge wood-burning fireplace and room for a grand piano. Also off the hallway and attached to the living room is the extra large dining room, seating for many guests for dinner in here! A bright sun porch with a cast iron wood burner has arched leaded glass doors both from the dining room and the living room. Pass the grand stairway and you will find the bright and beautiful kitchen and the FR. Open to each other, on the FR side there is a wall of floor to ceiling built in cabinetry with a wet bar. and another half wall of built-ins on the other side. The kitchen has gas cooking, top of the line stainless Fisher and Paykell appliances, custom painted inset door cabinetry and granite countertops that make this space so inviting you may never want to leave! Off the kitchen is the back porch with lots more storage. Completing this floor is a half bath. On the second floor there are four generous bedrooms (one being used as an office) and two baths, all with large closets and great light. The master is enormous with a walk-in closet. On the third floor there are three more over-sized bedrooms and two more bathrooms. Off one of the bedrooms is a large box room (with a window!) and a cedar closet. The outside area of the property has tall trees and lots of perennial planting. The driveway runs from the street behind the house to an over-sized 2 car carriage house with door opener. A narrow stairway inside leads to a semi-finished attic space, just in case you need some extra room!!
