|Welcome to 22 West Bells Mill Road. This beautiful Chestnut Hill home is set neatly back on one of Philadelphia’s classic country roads, winding through the Wissahickon Valley of Fairmount Park. A charming drive leads up to the home which offers 3,000 sun-lit square feet perched on nearly 1/2 an acre of land. This gracious home captures the perfect combination of old-world charm blended with modern amenities. The first level has a traditional layout featuring a large, eat-in kitchen, hall powder room, dining room, living room and office/library. The second level boasts 5 bedrooms and 3 full bathrooms, including a spacious primary bedroom with a large in-suite bath. The second floor includes a porch spanning the back side of the home and is highlighted with a wonderfully ornate wrought iron rail. There are 6, functional, wood burning fireplaces across both the first and second levels. The lovely yard is ready for a green thumb, with a pristine green house and plenty of flower beds to nurture existing plants or re-imagine with new specimens. The home is surrounded by mature trees offering abundant and quiet privacy. An attached 2 car garage with additional room for tool bench or storage finishes out this amazing property. The phrase “they don’t build them like they used to,” applies to this nearly 100 year old home that has had only 3 owners, each of which has meticulously maintained its alluring charm. Location is everything, with direct access to all of the shopping and dining that Chestnut Hill has to offer. Nestled on the edge of the Wissahickon Valley, this home is just steps from Forbidden Drive and the beautiful biking, jogging, and hiking trails of Philadelphia’s Alpine Gorge. Approximately 1/2 mile to the Thomas Mill Covered Bridge, 4 miles to PA309, 6 miles to I76/476 Junction, 12 miles to Amtrak’s 30th Street Station & Center City and 20 miles to the airport, enjoy the charm, nature and beauty that Chestnut Hill offers with easy access to farther destinations – NYC included!
