Property Description

Great location in Chestnut Hill's Top of the Hill! Private, quiet, comfortable 2-story, 3 bedroom, 1.5 bath twin on a one-way street just a short walk from the Avenue! So many updates including complete re-wiring in 2013, four (4) mini split units for cooling as well as supplemental heat to keep the house comfortable all year round. Floor plan: Spacious, covered front porch hidden behind mature trees will welcome you to this lovely home. From the front porch, enter through an arched doorway into a spacious living room that includes built in bookshelves, cabinets and a coat closet for convenience. A fireplace with glass doors and a mantle are a lovely anchor to this room (fireplace has never been used by current owner) and this room can be temperature controlled with a dedicated mini-split. Hardwood floors with ribbon inlay are a seamless connector between the Living room and the Dining room. The open Dining room has a mini-split unit, 3 side windows PLUS oversized bay window which allows for loads of natural light! The bay window overlooks the fenced-in backyard which is green, private and beautifully landscaped with perennials and mature trees. The Dining room flows into the efficient Kitchen and even offers a bar area with pendant lighting - an easy place to pull up a stool and have breakfast or a cup of coffee. The kitchen is fully stocked with a 5 gas burner stove, a built in microwave, extra cabinetry, dishwasher and garbage disposal. Access from the kitchen to the backyard is easy through glass double doors. The unfinished basement with laundry is also accessed through the kitchen. A convenient half bath rounds out the first floor. Second floor: Primary bedroom has it's own mini-split, a ceiling fan and 2 closets including surprise walk-in closet. It also offers additional space that can be used for a nursery, an office, a reading room or whatever you need. In addition, the 2nd floor offers 2 spare bedrooms, one with a mini split and one with a ceiling fan, and a full bathroom with tile flooring, shower over tub, subway tile and a linen closet. Rex Avenue provides a convenient location, walkable to the shops and restaurants on Germantown Ave. Or head South on Rex to enter the coveted Wissahickon Park for a day of hiking, biking, horseback riding, or fishing. This location is close to train, bus, center city and major routes. 128 Rex offers a great combination of urban and suburban living! SHOWINGS CAN BEGIN FRIDAY, JUNE 23rd.
