A stunning Colonial Revival home in Sedgwick Farms in East Mt. Airy has hit the market to the tune of $789,000.
The 5-bedroom, 3.5-bath home was designed in 1915 by architect Ashton Tourison as part of Sedgwick Farms, a development that dates back to the early 1900s and was originally a sheep farm. Sedgwick Farms today features an interesting collection of varying architectural styles, from Colonial Revial to Tudor to Arts and Crafts.
“It was one of the first developments of McMansions in the city,” says listing agent Joseph Dougherty.
This particular home is one of the most prominent of the Sedgwick Farms, in part due to its location right at the front of the development, as well its two-story portico out front. Although the home is not certified historic, the current sellers have spent the past two decades restoring the original architectural details and renovating the home and two-car carriage house.
“Over the years they’ve completely restored it, down to the mechanicals,” said Dougherty. “They’ve done everything to restore the period details and bring it up to modern-day standards.”
The kitchen, for example, was completely remodeled, and the outdoor terraces now have blue stone pavers. Meanwhile, the home’s original millwork remains: The living room features quarter-sawn oak paneling and there are two sets of beautiful pocket doors off the foyer.
The 4,634 square foot home is located at 100 E. Sedgwick Street.
