$400,000 624 CHILDS AVENUE, DREXEL HILL, PA 19026
***Please ask your agent or email Listing Agent for a video tour*** Your castle awaits! 624 Childs Avenue is one of the most stunning examples of Tudor revival construction in all of Drexel Hill. Set in the heart of the Hollywood of the Silent Film era, "Addingham", it fulfills your furthest imaginings of a statuesque abode from the 1920's. Enter through the center hall and you will immediately notice the newly refinished hardwood floors, which are consistently beautiful throughout the house. Straight ahead is the cozy den / office. The bright, freshly remodeled kitchen is to your right, where you will find a large island with a hand-picked granite countertop, stone accent wall, new cabinetry, and stainless steel appliances. The kitchen is open to the dining room, complete with a gas fire stove. Exit the kitchen to the garage, or head to the finished basement that is well-suited for an extra entertainment space. It has a quaint, original cellar pantry and an extra unfinished room for bonus storage. A double-arched entryway to the Living Room invites you to sit by the stone fireplace and enjoy the tall ceilings and views of the neighboring Tudor style homes and gardens. Custom vintage "pig-iron" gates frame the living room threshold to complete the picture. The heated sun porch is next, with a beautiful view of the lovely private yard. Glass paned doors provide access to the partially covered patio. The sun porch, patio, living room, dining room, and several of the bedrooms are wired for Cable TV. To go upstairs you can ascend the center staircase or go up through the additional staircase located in the kitchen / dining area, which has a new custom wrought-iron railing. On the upper level there are 5 bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms, and a newly renovated powder room with laundry, which is at the top of the second stairway. The Master Wing has built in shelving, a bathroom with shower and pedestal sink, and an adjacent additional room, perfect for use as a dressing room or nursery. The second largest bedroom has a vaulted ceiling and plenty of space. There is a large cedar closet in the floored attic, which is accessed by stairs. The attached garage provides plenty of storage space, parking for two cars, or a workshop. The property has been recently converted from Oil heat to a tankless Gas "Condensing Combi-Boiler" by Navien that provides heat and instant hot water, lower utility bills, and opens up significant usable space in the basement. Brand new 200+ amp service to house and new electric panel. Please ask your agent to provide you with the list of numerous upgrades and improvements the owners have made. This home is walkable to "The Station Tap", Barone's Ice Cream and Water Ice, Wawa and more. A 4 minute walk to Aronimink Trolley Station, close to Center City, University City, the airport and 30th Street Station. Virtual showings are welcomed with serious interest. IMPORTANT: *Property is OCCUPIED. Walking on the property is NOT permitted and is considered trespassing. Physical showings are limited as per Governor's mandate.
