624 CHILDS AVENUE, DREXEL HILL, PA 19026
Sitting at the pinnacle of the Addingham, Drexel Brook and Aronomik neighborhoods, sits a majestic Tudor on the corner of Childs Ave--how can you miss the modern-day castle! Ever wonder what it looks like inside? Now is your chance to see what a full renovation of a stone-wall Tudor looks like inside! Imagine all the comforts of a renovated modern kitchen with the latest appliances, while still capturing the old-world feel of the luxury Tudor lifestyle with sweeping archways, original wrought-iron gates and a stone fireplace.
Coming in through the original arched doorway, the foyer has stunning views of the impressive Great Room, which opens up to a stone-floored heated sunroom with French doors. The large Tudor-style windows let the light stream in onto the newly refinished hardwood floors. You can exit the sunroom outside right into a covered patio, a great flow for entertaining your guests from outside to inside. Back inside, the foyer grand entrance opens straight ahead to a den, office or library room. Go by the sweeping staircase, and enter the open-concept dining room/kitchen area with a center island, granite countertops and a stone backsplash, or set up a formal dinner in the spacious dining room. Choose either of the two staircases to travel upstairs and enter the upper floor left wing to experience the primary suite of your dreams. As you float down the hall to the main bedroom, you travel past a full-size bathroom, as well as a room to your right which could be a sitting room or it's current purpose--an absolutely delightful walk-in closet with natural light coming in from the window! At the end of the hallway, you will enter the main bedroom suite with huge windows complete with Dual-Shifting blinds, and a private ensuite bathroom.
In the right wing of this magnificent home, there are two large bedrooms across from each other, one with a beautiful vaulted ceiling and a beautiful chandelier. You then walk through a “play” room or library, past an updated half-bathroom with the main floor washer/dryer, and you will see the 5th bedroom at the end of the hall. These 4 rooms can also be accessed directly from the back stairwell in the kitchen. There is also a door leading upstairs to the large cedar closet in the floored “finishable” attic. Once back in the kitchen by the back door out to the long driveway and 2-car garage, is the door to the basement stairway. Here you will find a finished great room area that can be anything you want it to be--game room, living area, or theatre room. Need storage? No worries, as there are two stone-walled “cellar” closets for your wine, or take another step down into the larger storage room, complete with upgraded tankless gas "Condensing Combi-Boiler" by Navien that provides heat and instant hot water, lower utility bills, and opens up even more significant usable space in the basement!
