The Grand Dame of the Overbrook Farms neighborhood is now available for sale! Welcome to 6420 Drexel Road, an elegant 1905 stone Colonial Revival designed by architect Walter F Price, on the National Historic Register. Nestled on one of the most desirable blocks in this distinguished community, this home is like no other, with original architectural details not to be missed. Crown moldings and hardwoods on every floor. Step inside to an expansive foyer with a grand staircase, and a wood burning fireplace to greet you. Enter the elegant living room through glass French doors and note built-in bookcases flanking a large and bright window seat. Two other sets of French doors lead you to a fully enclosed, year round front porch on one side, and a raised outdoor patio on the other. Perfect for effortless seasonal entertaining. Also on the first floor youll find an expansive dining room with gorgeous curved glass windows. The eat-in kitchen, though older, boasts quality features hard to find in today~s homes including hand made wooden cabinetry and a stainless steel counter-top. Windows on all three sides bring in beautiful morning light. Expanding the kitchen is easy as it sits next to a large butlers pantry with extensive built-in cabinetry with glass doors. A half bathroom, glass French doors with patio access, and additional closets round off the first floor. On the second floor youll find a freshly painted master and ensuite with white subway tile, pedestal sink, double closets and a laundry chute. You will also find another two bedrooms on this floor, both with generous closet space, and a full hallway bathroom. Lastly there is a large corner library with more built-ins, another wood burning fireplace, and extensive crown molding. Take the back stairwell down to the first floor or ascend to the top floor and you will find 3 more bedrooms (one is especially large with a beautiful Palladian window and a closet with built-in cabinetry). Back on the first floor, backdoor access leads you to a separate carriage house with a two car garage and additional storage space. With some finishing, a kitchen could be added back to the full apartment above the garage (4 rooms including full bathroom) and could provide additional rental income or be used as an in-law suite. At this location, you can walk to the train, and you will be close to major highways, St. Josephs University, and all the shopping and dining the Main Line and City Ave have to offer. Classic and unique homes like this rarely come around often, nor do they last. This piece of history is calling you home.
