This historic Queen Anne style Victorian home in the desirable neighborhood of Mt. Airy was the first home built by the James Gowen Estate c. 1883. Gowen Avenue has been considered one of the most beautiful Victorian streets in Philadelphia. This large home has generously proportioned rooms for entertaining, with high ceilings, crown moldings, wainscoting and unique staircase railings and newel post. This residence is fully air-conditioned with three zones, 7 bedrooms and 2.5 tiled bathrooms. A thermal glass-enclosed sun porch (30' x 15') offers casual family living and a cozy gas-fired fireplace. The expansive rear yard has beautiful gardens, a variety of specimen trees, a charming gazebo- swing, hot tub, and an above-ground lap pool measuring 12' x 40' with exceptional privacy. The property includes a driveway, parking area, and a detached 2-car garage. The property is one-block from the Mt. Airy Station, which provides commuter trains to Center City, and is close to the PA Turnpike, Rt. 309, and there's easy access to the village of Chestnut Hill and the Wissahickon Park. Offered for the first time in 37 years, it is rare to find such an outstanding historic home to make your own, with superb outdoor space in a beautiful neighborhood setting.
