If you ever find yourself strolling along Summit Avenue in Fort Washington, you'll notice that one of these homes is not like the other. Specifically, this 6-bedroom, 3.5-bath, salmon-colored Victorian with a shingle-covered turret. A placard on the wrap-around porch tells us that this home was built in 1888 and designed by local architect T. Frank Miller. The original owner was William Weber Johnson, the son of a Philly-based ink manufacturer.
The home has undergone numerous restorations, including newly landscaped side and back gardens. Inside, it features two fireplaces, stained glass windows, and a number of oddly-shaped rooms that make for cozy reading nooks. There are also two sun rooms, or what the listing calls "sleeping porches," and a detached two-car garage. Since hitting the market in July 2015, this Victorian has undergone a series of pricechops, bringing it down from $500,000 to its current asking price of $419,000.
