Property Description

At the end of a long circular driveway, Circa 1898, sits a beautiful home named “Wind Ridge.” Originally built as a summer home for the wealthy Vaux family of Philadelphia, a “farmette” of 91 acres at its onset, it was subdivided down into lots for newer families over the years. Now, nestled on a little more than 2 acres, this grand house boasts 11 bedrooms and 6 and 1 half baths. Walking up the stone steps to the original covered porch with its pitched roof, you can imagine the horse and carriage pulling up to drop off guests for a wonderful party that was being hosted here. The grand foyer with its high ceilings and magnificent marble fireplace is what greets you when you walk thru the front door. The beautifully well kept original hard wood flooring leads you to your left, where up a few steps you enter into the library thru a charming arched doorway. Equipped with beautiful built in shelving, and arched mullioned windows. A few more steps down and you are in the great room. A magnificent living space with 12-foot ceilings, fireplace #2, lots of windows for light and a quaint corner nook with built in seating area surrounded by windows, this room is fit to host any event. To the right of the foyer, is the huge dining area with fireplace # 3, a gorgeous chandelier and a wall of windows with built in seating. Thru the Butler pantry with its built in China cabinet and original lighting fixture, to the kitchen with neutral tiled flooring, large island, stainless steel appliances, built in shelving to match the time period, and the center-piece, the Gas stove with original brick surround (used to be a chimney!) Sliding glass doors exit to a large back deck. Off of the kitchen there is a breakfast area and a very large mud room with a closet for extra storage and access to the side yard. The kitchen also has that second stair case to the upper level, which is so common to the time period of the home. The basement, off of the kitchen, includes lots of room for extra storage and a brand-new boiler. Up the foyer stairs you will find 6 bedrooms, including two master suites; 4 more fireplaces, a large full hall bath and a sizeable laundry room. Need more room? Up to the third level, this is where you will find the final 3 bedrooms (or offices, play areas) and the final full bath. Outside is an inground pool, plenty of yard space for entertaining, and another side covered porch. This home just exudes charm and character. This property, in Wissahickon School District is an absolute home run! Make your appointment today and continue to add to the memories of this beautiful property and its special history.
