Welcome to the immaculate & completely restored Dutch Colonial. In its 115 year history, this home has had only 2 families that have called it home. Originally constructed for Edward Lorimer (one of 5 Brothers that established one of the largest yarn manufacturers in the US) in 1903, it remained in the Lorimer family until 1982 when the property was purchased by the current Owner, a master craftsman, carpenter & cabinet maker. Do not be deceived by the appearance of the Victorian aesthetic within, as everything about this house has been thoughtfully & tastefully upgraded to modern standards. This includes all of the systems (2 A/C systems in 2016 & 2018, gas-fired condensing furnace with 98% efficiency in 2012, complete renovation of both bathrooms in 2016 & 2018, new lifetime guaranty roof in 2012, upgraded & enhanced electrical systems, new kitchen, laundry & breakfast room to name a few). The house is deceptively larger than it appears from the street. The welcoming front porch wraps around the side providing direct access to the private rear yard. One will begin to appreciate that every single original detail remains. The entry hall is filled with quarter-sawn Oak. The living & dining rooms are filled with Chestnut woodwork on the pocket doors, plate rails, shutters & picture rails. The kitchen was renovated to exacting standards of the original cabinets with Yellow Pine cabinetry & counters, a new island and a professional Viking stove along with all the other necessary appliances. The laundry & breakfast room are tucked off the kitchen with a powder room under the main stairs. Upstairs, the wood details continue to impress, from the custom walk-in closet in the master bedroom to all the door trim & baseboards. Both bathrooms have been completely updated and both provide a large stall shower & a claw foot tub. The 3rd floor has amazing ceiling height (due to the roof lines) and there is even a pull-down staircase for access to a large, floored attic. The Owner's woodworking studio is in the basement with a Bilco door to the rear yard (the equipment does not convey) and the remainder of the basement is high & dry & has just been completely re-painted for the next Owner. Out back, you will find a Gothic-inspired storage shed, a fully fenced vegetable garden (and even a huge blueberry bush!) & the 2-car garage with attic access for additional storage. It is one of the most beautiful homes, ready for the next generation to call it home!
Welcome to Holmecrest!!! This 1926 stone manor house has had only 4 Owners in its 91 year history. Originally constructed by a local developer & builder (Joshua A. Holmes) for his own residence, it then became the home of Rona Brunswick (Bronfman), daughter of one of the founding brothers of Seagrams in Montreal! The story shared down through the owners is that Joe & Rose Kennedy were key friends with the Bronfman clan during prohibition. When that was lifted in 1933 & this house was purchased by the Brunswicks in 1934, the Kennedys came to Elkins Park often for visits! This stately stone home is tucked into the corner of a 1-acre parcel, affording large, sweeping lawns down the side & rear. A circular drive leads to the front porch (already wired for your Tesla!) while the rear drive goes through the port cochere to the detached 2-car garage. A gracious entry hall welcomes guests & the living spaces radiate off this main corridor. The powder room is tucked under the stairs next to the door out to the side driveway. There is a cozy paneled library with a wet bar facing West. The living room occupies the entire front of the house and has exceptional trim moldings, a bay window and a gas fireplace with a detailed Georgian mantel. The large dining room overlooks the rear yard & has another bay window, a crystal chandelier with a ceiling medallion and direct access to the breakfast room. The kitchen has been completely updated with marble counters, a Sub-Zero fridge, professional stove & a Bosch dishwasher. There is a peninsula & an island with a 2nd prep sink. One can access the rear deck or the back staircase. The master suite has a large sitting area, and a newly remodeled en-suite bath with a glass shower (for 2, with a rain head), a bidet, toilet & 2 sinks. There is a hall bathroom for 1 of the bedrooms (now used as a 2nd floor TV room) and the 3rd bedroom has it's own en-suite bathroom. The 4th bedroom on this floor was converted to a laundry. The 3rd floor has 2 more large bedrooms, ample storage closets and the 4th full bathroom. The central A/C system services all of the 2nd & 3rd floor while a mini-split unit in the kitchen services the 1st floor. The basement has two large finished areas that include the family room (with doors to a pergola covered patio) and a large office area with the 2nd powder room. It's just 3 blocks to the Elkins Park train station and CreekSide Coop and the library is just another 2 blocks away.
