Set against the lush backdrop of the Wissahickon Valley Park, this 3,600-square-foot-space just came on the market for $724,000.
The four-bed, three-bath home mixes contemporary design with some modern touches, like an all-wood exterior, and tons of floor-to-ceiling windows that embrace the greenery outside.
Inside, the place is anything but symmetrical. A large living room offers a fireplace with a wood background, recessed lighting, and glass doors lead out to the first section of a long wood porch outside. A dining room on the same level has a light well, with an oversized window that stretches up to the second floor
The master bedroom area upstairs has a lot of interesting elements as well, like a balcony that overlooks the first floor, another fireplace, and even more access to the porch outside.
The place, built in 1986, sits on a half-acre of land that butts up against the park on a quiet, dead-end street called “Cornelia Place. If you’re eager to check it out for yourself, there’s an open house on Sunday, October 21, from noon to 2 p.m.
