This Gowen Estate property, built in 1886 by Issac K Pierson, was designed by Frank Furness and still retains many of the original details. You enter this 5 bedroom, 2.5 bath, balloon-framed, stone and fish-scale sided Victorian home from the slate walkway and through a covered front porch. The lovely split barn door welcomes you into the entry hall dominated by an angled fireplace which backs up to yet another angled fireplace in a well-proportioned, square living room. A glass paneled door leads you out of the living room into a sunny enclosed porch, with exposed stone and a wall of windows. Transition through French doors into the large dining room. A short hall with convenient half bath leads to the modern eat-in kitchen with black granite counter tops, lots of cabinets for storage, a double sink, and new stainless steel appliances. Exit from the kitchen to the spacious back yard. The lovely stairwell leads you up to the 2nd floor and 2 large bedrooms, the main with a sitting/dressing room and door to the super-convenient 2nd floor laundry. There is a full bath on this floor as well with a good sized linen closet. The 3rd floor boasts 3 more bedrooms, one with a walk-in closet and a larger full bath. There are lovely hardwood floors throughout the home. The basement can be partially finished with a service door leading to a concrete patio. Close to transportation, shopping, restaurants & everything Mount Airy AND Chestnut Hill have to offer! Property being sold as-is. Taxes have yet to be assessed as sub-division has just been completed.
