A beautifully restored, shingle-style home in Chestnut Hill that has hit the market to the tune of $1,695,000.
Clocking in at 6,192 square feet, the spacious 4-bedroom, 4.5-bath home sits on 2.35 acres on the edge of Morris Arboretum. As the listing puts it, “The house was essentially rebuilt in 2012.”
Indeed, there is a long list of repairs, updates, and renovations that the current owners made to the home: The roof was raised, walls were taken out, the exterior stone walls were repaired, just to name a few.
The listing photos reveal an immaculate home. The main living room is bathed in light, with a wall of French doors and windows that open up to the property’s backyard. The kitchen, meanwhile, takes on a more rustic look with white-painted exposed beams and a farmhouse sink. There’s also a wine cellar below the kitchen with reclaimed barn walls.
Upstairs, the master bedroom has its own balcony that has views of the arboretum. There’s also a library on the second floor, and a separate two-car garage with potential for an in-law suite or office on the second floor.
