Yet another Chestnut Hill charmer has hit the market, and it does not disappoint. Located right next to Roanoke Garage is this three-story home that has more curb appeal than we’d know what to do with.

The 3-bedroom, 2-bath home dates back to 1886, when it was built as a private residence for developer John Harp. According to the Chestnut Hill Historic Files, an addition was added in 1922. The current owner and seller has spent the past seven years updating and restoring the home’s original 19th-century character.

“When I entered this home for the first time, I was blown away by the level of care this owner has shown,” said listing agent Jeffrey Block.

The home is south-facing, so it gets plenty of light. Past the adorable facade, the living room, dining room, and kitchen all have original hardwood floors. The kitchen is probably the most modern room in the home, and looks out to a pretty big landscaped backyard, which Block describes as “magical.”

The top two floors is where all of the bedrooms are located. A wooden, spiral staircase leads up to the third dormer floor, which is currently setup as a family room.

The asking price of the home at 37 W. Willow Grove Avenue is $450,000.
