Introducing the Amos J. Birdsall Jr. estate! Constructed at the turn of the last century for a wealthy merchant mariner, this exquisite home has been thoughtfully & thoroughly updated for today. The original details include the extensive use of Mercer tiles, quartersawn Oak wainscoting & mantel details, plaster medallion ceiling, leaded glass sidelights, a wrap-around front porch, a sleeping porch, a sun room & a soaring loft space on the 3rd floor (perfect for an additional family room). Modern updates include a 3-zoned central A/C system (one of the high-velocity systems was just replaced in 2015), multi-zoned gas heating (also a new boiler), replacement windows & a whole house generator. Located on nearly an acre of level ground, you approach the entry via a wrap-around porch (either from the port cochere or the front walk). A double door vestibule opens into a gracious central hall with a beamed ceiling. The living & family rooms flank the entry (1 with a wood fireplace, the other with gas). The breakfast/sunroom faces the side yard & connects back to the front hall, powder room & kitchen. A massive Oak paneled dining room has a lovely original built-in buffet & mirrored alcove. The completely renovated kitchen & butlers pantry respectfully integrates modern elements into the historic fabric. It includes 2 beverage coolers, an ice maker, a Fisher & Paykel D/W drawer & another D/W, professional S/S appliances & quartersawn Oak cabinets. A large laundry/pantry room is tucked just at the rear. The master suite has a huge bathroom with a bubble tub, large shower, 2 sinks, a bidet & the necessary. A walk around closet & dressing area provide ample storage. There are 3 more large bedrooms, a hall bath, a private powder room & the sleeping porch on the 2nd floor. The massive loft area on the 3rd floor includes a home gym room, built-in bookcases & a huge Palladian window overlooking the front yard. The 5th guest suite (with a full bath) & a large storage attic (with cedar closet) complete this floor. Out back, there are 2 entertaining patios (one with a pergola, the other with a built-in gas grille) before you reach the restored in-ground pool. Tucked into the rear corner is the 2-car carriage house with a heated attic room. Its perfectly located within walking distance to either the Melrose or Elkins Park SEPTA stations & CreekSide Co-op & within easy reach to major roads. Come explore Melrose Park & the Birdsall estate & you too will fall in love!
