Your house hunting days are over! Welcome to charming 8535 Ardmore Avenue that awaits you with stunning views. Located in Wyndmoor and walking distance of Chestnut Hill, this Pennsylvania field stone house is not only move-in ready but also one of only two Richardson Okie-style houses in the Philadelphia area. Okie and his students created beautiful houses known for their history, craftsmanship and traditional building. 8535 Ardmore Avenue embodies all of these traits while also being fully updated! And, this house has been so loved that only two owners have lived in it since 1940. When the current owners bought the house in 1997, they hired famed architect Peter Zimmerman to create additional living space that encompassed a new kitchen and pantry/bar area - all with Jim Arthur cabinetry, a two-story family room with fireplace, an extra bedroom and bath, front door entrance room and a large flagstone patio. The final result maintained the architectural style and provided over 4,000+square foot living and entertaining spaces, with great circulation. Landscaper, Eliot Templeton added his touch to the outside of the house and over the years, plants and trees have been added to create a sublime, private, arboretum-like setting.See for yourself why this beautifully sited home is ideal for todayÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s lifestyle. Additional features include 4 bedrooms, 3 and Ã‚Â½ bathrooms, dining room, sun room and living room all with stunning valley views, a large unfinished basement, an exercise room and a two car garage with overhead storage.This wonderful house is private, kid friendly and close to everything - Captain Andy's and Enzos on Willow Grove and a 12-minute walk to Germantown Avenue and the SEPTA train lines. 8535 Ardmore Avenue is a rare combination of a classic Philadelphia home with all the modern amenities you could wish for, in a coveted location. Your house hunting days are indeed over.
