Chestnut Hill is known for its historic and handsome stone homes, many of which can be traced back to the Woodward family of the late 19th and early 20 centuries. But the neighborhood also has its fair share of smaller, charming row homes, like this 3-bedroom that just hit the market for $369,000.
The 1,200-square-foot property at 8131 Roanoke Street has a lot going for it: It’s close to Germantown Avenue, and the kitchen was recently renovated with a subway tile backlash and farmhouse sink. The two sunrooms in the front and back of the house are also nice perks.
But what really sticks out is the home’s large backyard. Along with a brick patio that’s covered with a trellis, there’s a long patch of grass beyond that. The home also happens to look over the 16-acre Pastorious Park, so there’s no lack of green space here.
