    Description

    208 Roberts, one of the prettiest houses in Glenside on the most sought after streets in Glenside, is on the market! Built as a summer home for the mayor of Philadelphia in 1918, it is as grand as it looks. From the wide and deep front porch with cast iron fencing to the 9-foot ceilings, to the gorgeous hardwood floors, to the period glass knobs on all of the solid wood interior doors, this house will delight those who appreciate classic design. Off of the large foyer is the formal dining room with chair rail, built-ins, bay window and fireplace. There is a huge living room with large fireplace and handsome mantle, crown molding, windows and built ins. From the living room there are two French doors to the sun room. The sun room, with its wall of windows and beadboard ceiling, will be an excellent place to enjoy your morning coffee or a glass of wine after work. The large and sunny kitchen currently consists of three areas, kitchen, butler~s pantry and breakfast room. With the walls down it could be the kitchen of your dreams. Also on the first floor is an office/library with built ins and access to the back yard. Convenient first floor laundry and mud room complete with canning closet. Powder room and back staircase complete this floor. Up the staircase is a large landing with a chandelier and period stained glass window. What is now used as a den was formerly a billiards room complete with billiards closet and storage closet. Additionally, on the second floor is a large master bedroom with walk in closet and bath, 2 additional bedrooms, hall bath and two hall closets for storage. The third floor has a large walk in closet, 2 bedrooms, den, office, full bath and additional storage. The full basement has an outside exit and has been professionally waterproofed, offers loads of storage and room for a large workshop. The patio overlooks a fully fenced level yard ~ a dream for entertaining this summer. Oversized 1.5 car garage is a huge bonus. Fabulous location. Easy walk to train, shops, schools, parks, farmers market and Keswick Village. Award winning Abington Schools and Copper Beech Elementary. Easy access to 309 and PA Turnpike. This is a dream home that is just waiting for your updates.
