We are proud to present 640 Gate House Lane! Welcome to this contemporary marvel constructed in 2012 on a coveted lane in the leafy section of Chestnut Hill, in Northwestern Philadelphia. The beauty of this modern masterpiece – designed by Philadelphia’s famed FURY Design, Inc and fully renovated by award-winning McCoubrey/Overholser construction – is its fabulous location nestled high above the Wissahickon Valley within Fairmount Park and the perfect harmony of the building materials: stone, zinc, slate and Sappele wood. The owners’ profound attention to detail created a house manageable in size; comfortable yet modern; open but extremely private. The open floor plan flows from the entry to natural-light soaked living room to dining area, all with top-of-the-line sliding doors that frame a view more reminiscent of Vermont or New Hampshire than Philadelphia. Just through the sliding doors is an expansive and thoughtfully designed and very private 1600 square foot deck surrounded by nature. All rooms have heated slate floors or wide burnt pine boards. The gourmet kitchen features a Wolf range; Subzero refrigerator and wine cooler; Miele in-wall coffee/espresso machine; dual Miele dishwashers; and Caesarstone countertops. The adjoining media room has sliding glass doors that open onto a tranquil front courtyard with gurgling Japanese water feature, and next to it, dual storage sheds with “green” roof that can house bikes, garden tools and trash cans. Back inside, stroll up the floating staircase to find a gorgeous main suite with a private balcony; bathroom with a luxurious, oversized shower and spacious floating dual vanities; and enormous walk-in closets. The second floor also features three additional bedrooms, a full spa-like bathroom w/ soaking tub and a large laundry room. While you already feel like you’re in a treehouse, one floor up you’ll find the 3rd floor fitness room and office with a bird’s-eye view of the Wissahickon Valley. If you love all the benefits of a luxurious modern home set in the tranquility of Nature, 640 Gate House Lane can be yours – just 20 minutes from downtown Philadelphia and in close proximity to the shops and restaurants of Chestnut Hill. No matter the season, residing at 640 Gate House Lane is like living in a fairy tale.
