Updated and charming Tudor style twin located on a lovely tree lined, one way street. This block is among the most beloved and coveted in West Mount Airy. 325 West Durham Street has the perfect combination of original architectural details and modern updates that you want in home.
From the moment that you enter into the enclosed porch, you will immediately feel a sense of comfort and begin to envision hours of relaxation and enjoyment in this beautiful space. The original windows are in tact on the porch and are stunning. Custom fit screens were installed so that you can enjoy a nice breeze on warm days.
Once through the French doors you will see that the entire house is bathed in natural light which creates an incredibly inviting environment. The living room is spacious and features a fireplace with beautiful wood mantle and bay window bump out. The original oak floors span the entire house, with lovely walnut inlay detail in both the living and dining rooms. The living room opens to the dining room with plenty of space for relaxed dining or formal occasions.
The original swinging door opens from the dining room into the gorgeous custom kitchen. No expense was spared or detail overlooked when the kitchen was renovated. Top of the line cabinets, stainless steel appliances, tasteful fixtures and exquisite granite countertops were all thoughtfully selected. There is a ton of storage space, gas cooking and a nice flow into the dining room. The kitchen also offers access to the driveway, garage and rear deck. A convenient powder room rounds out the first floor.
Upstairs, you will find three bright bedrooms and beautifully updated bath, featuring marble tile, tasteful vanity and glass surround. The bedrooms are nicely sized and offer ample closet space. The basement is clean and offers great storage space, laundry area with utility sink and outside access.
Outside, you will find a sweet rear deck, great for dining or relaxing and gorgeous perennial gardens just waiting to pop. Garden plantings include hydrangea, hellebore, various roses, blazing pink azalea, crepe myrtle and more. There is also a detached garage with automatic garage door and electric.
Wonderful original details such as glass doorknobs, solid wood doors, beautiful wood floors and moldings boast unmatched old world charm. When the windows were replaced, care was taken and no expense spared so that the character of the home was maintained, while creating an energy efficient environment. In addition to newer windows, both the roof and gas furnace were replaced in 2014.
325 W Durham is within walking distance to everything Mt. Airy has to offer, from restaurants like Goat Hollow and Tiffin; Weavers Way, a great cooperative grocery store; beautiful woods and trails like Carpenters Woods and Wissahickon Park system; and regional rail at the Allens Lane train station. You are just minutes from being in the heart of the neighborhood and a hop, skip and jump away from Center City.
