    Description

    Let me take you back to the end of the 19th Century and the early development of Montgomery County. The triumvirate of wealth in this area was best remembered for William L. Elkins, Peter A.B. Widener and William T.B. Roberts. Most people know Elkins & Widener, however Roberts was the man behind the money that built nearly everything (including Lynnwood Hall and Elstowe Manor) and was responsible for many major suburban developments at the turn of the 20th Century. Financed by Elkins, Roberts began buying up the country estates in Cheltenham and Abington Townships to create new suburban developments along the train lines. In Abington Township, they purchased the 300+ acre estate +G+Willieside+G- in 1905 and set out to create Glenside Highlands +GG +G+A Model Home Town+G-. He gave a large 1-acre parcel to his Brother, Charles W. Roberts and constructed this amazing version of an American Foursquare in 1906. Still situated on its original lot, it has been faithfully and diligently preserved to retain all the original character. Placed centrally on the land, affording for large side & rear yards. There is ample room to create a garden oasis, coordinate neighborhood soccer games or to add your own pool. The south facing, full-width front porch is the perfect place to greet all your neighbors. Enter the glass vestibule which is the perfect place to discard the winter weather before entering the central foyer. Immediately, one notices the beautiful oak flooring with contrasting mahogany banding. The formal living room occupies the entire front of the home. The formal dining room has a large bay window that is flooded with Western light & there is an extra seating nook tucked at the end of this space with windows facing the rear yard. The original crown molding remains throughout the home. The updated kitchen was reconfigured to provide a large & open area. From the rear entry, there is a spacious mudroom area with a large bench & pantry cupboard as well as the powder room. Open to the renovated kitchen, an efficient U-shaped space with white Shaker cabinets, black granite countertops & white subway tiles is wide open to the family room. Bar seating is provided for casual dining. The 5-burner gas stove and S/S vent hood is complimented by a S/S dishwasher and a large double-sink under the East facing windows. A coat closet is tucked under the main staircase. One will also appreciate all the custom oak radiator covers that have been designed throughout the home. As one climbs to the 2nd floor, there is a large window on the stair landing & a delightful arched opening in the wall to allow for more light to flood the staircase. The owner+GGs suite overlooks the side & rear yards, has two full-length closets, a small sitting area outside of the en-suite bathroom that has both a tub and a separate stall shower. Two spacious guest bedrooms (both with bay windows overlooking the front yard) are connected and serviced by the hall bathroom with a tub/shower combo. A huge 2nd floor office (or playroom) is flanked on two walls with bookshelves and base cabinets. From this space, one accesses the wonderful 2nd floor sleeping porch! On the 3rd floor, another large bedroom is tucked into the roof eaves with windows overlooking the rear yard as well as a large walk-in cedar closet. There is another smaller bedroom, a large attic storage room and the 3rd full bath with a stall shower. The full basement has a small finished area and ample space for storage or further finishing for living space as well as the laundry. The detached garage does need restoration. Walk to practically everything, from the Glenside SEPTA station (and its Farmer+GGs Market during the summer months) to Keswick Village. Will you be the next Steward to cherish this historic home for the next generation?
