Welcome to Mulberry House, a wonderful Colonial in the heart of Chestnut Hill that has been meticulously cared for and expanded. A sweeping main staircase, window-doors to the terrace, original fireplaces and solarium are complimented by a host of modern updates. The first floor welcomes you with high ceilings, large rooms, fine plaster moldings, random width floors and custom built-ins. The large library, currently used as a billiards room, is a versatile space with original built-in bookcases. The spacious formal living room is perfect for large family gatherings and entertaining. Two floor-to-ceiling windows double as doors which open to the covered terrace. The adjoining dining room features original hand-carved trim, plaster moldings, access to the terrace, and a large bay window overlooking the beautiful grounds.
The bright custom chef’s kitchen – expanded and completely redone by the current owners – flows into the adjoining family and morning rooms, making it a perfect central hub for today’s modern family. The kitchen features custom Rutt Cabinets and built-ins, 2 Bosch Dishwashers, 2 Sub-Zero’s, a custom hood and AGA cooker, and beautiful Corian, granite and cherry counters. The kitchen opens to the family room, with fireplace and built-ins.
The morning room is all windows, and offers a dining area, sitting area and double doors to the rear yard. A side family entrance has a secluded brick patio tucked behind an original garden wall. The master suite simply glows with natural light, and includes a sitting/dressing room with fireplace, multiple closets and large bath. The large second suite features multiple closets and a lovely ensuite bath. The rear part of the second story has been completely renovated with a third bedroom and adjoining bath, large laundry and a second family room (which could easily be converted to a bedroom with bath access). On the third floor, there’s a large bedroom suite with bath and possible fifth bedroom. A large cedar room, huge linen closet, full basement and partial tool garage offer ample storage.
Mulberry House is an easy walk to the Avenue and shops and dining of Chestnut Hill and Fairmount Park.
