A handsome stone home that sits on nearly two acres in the middle of Awbury Arboretum in Germantown has come to the market, impressing with its historic character and enormous potential.
The home at 6125 Boyer Street sits on 1.85 acres, and while it’s surrounded by foliage, it’s not completely isolated from its other grand neighbors. Per the listing, the stone house dates back to about 1872 and was designed by Addison Hutton, a noted local architect of the late 19th and early 20th centuries whose work can be found throughout Philly and Swarthmore, Haverford, and Bryn Mawr’s campuses.
It’s quite large: Within the 6,683-square-foot property there are eight bedrooms, four bathrooms, eight fireplaces, and 11-foot-tall ceilings. Much of the home’s original details remain, from the oak woodwork to the crown moldings.
But the future owner of this home won’t have to do too much modernizing: The kitchen has been upgraded and the home has a new HVAC system and wiring.
The asking price is $850,000.
