Learn More About Chestnut Hill & View Real Estate Listings for Sale

Chestnut Hill is the premiere neighborhood of Northwest Philadelphia.  This neighborhood boasts some seriously impressive real estate & has the highest median home value outside of Center City.  It is historic, charming, pastoral & oh so beautiful.  It was the original gateway between the farmlands & Center City.  A little later it became a place where wealthy Philadelphian’s built their summer homes due to it’s higher elevation it tended to stay a little cooler.  Today, Chestnut Hill is as charming as ever & feels a bit like a throwback to days past.  Germantown Ave., the commercial district, has retained it’s adorable cobblestone streets.  The shops are tidy, well kept & run by local merchants.  The homes run the gamut from 11,000 square foot estate homes on huge lots to sweet twins surrounding the commercial corridor.  This neighborhood is probably your best bet for a single family home with suburban living feel if you can stomach the price tag.  Most homes are stone & brick & have either front yards or side yards & there are many gardens.  Condos & new construction are few & far between.

What Are the Boundaries?

Northwestern Ave., Wissahickon Gorge, Stenton Ave., & Cresheim Valley

Restaurants, Bars & Nightlife

Chestnut Hill isn’t known for it’s raging nightlife.  It’s a quieter section of Philadelphia, however, there are many great places to grab a drink, have dinner or brunch.  Mica is a great place for a fancy meal, Osaka, Heirloom Fine American Cookery, Roller’s, Tavern on the Hill, Campbell’s Place & Cake (in Robertson’s Greenhouse) just to name a few.

Grocery Shopping

Chestnut Hill & Mount Airy are home to the Weaver’s Way Coop.  Top of the Hill has great seafood, meat & local produce.  Penzey’s is my favorite place to shop for spices.  You are also close to a few big super markets.

Farmer’s Market

Chestnut Hill’s Farmer’s Market behind the Chestnut Hill Hotel has some great spots & is open on Thursday’s & Friday’s yet these hours could change as it is undergoing a renovation.  The outdoor farmer’s market sets up year round on Saturday mornings on Winston between Germantown & Mermaid.  It is one of the best in the city in my opinion.

Shopping

There are quite a few boutiques & galleries located along Germantown Ave.  Robertson’s Florist (photo above), Hipster Home, Mango, Ten Thousand Villages, Brewer’s Outlet, Hideaway Music for your vinyl needs & HOBNOB home just to name a few.  Chestnut Hill is a must do day trip!  There is so much to do!

Green Space

Chestnut Hill is surrounded by Fairmount Park!  This is a great place to run, walk, hike, bike or horseback ride.  There is a stable on Northwestern Ave. that has been in continuous use since 1929. Pastorious Park has a dog park for all you pooch owners.

Parking & Public Transportation

Parking is not too difficult in this neighborhood because the housing is less dense.  Parking close to the commercial district is usually metered or has a time limit.  There used to be a trolley that ran down Germantown.  I think it would be fabulous if they would bring that back.  There are two train lines; Chestnut Hill East & West.  There are also buses that serve the neighborhood.  Check out Septa’s website for more information.

What was old is new again. Superlative site, sophisticated floor plan, exquisite finishes, and impeccable craftsmanship have transformed this magical location, on the edge of the Morris Arboretum, into a modern, jaw-dropping retreat for today's luxury buyer. How can this bucolic setting, with the ultimate in "borrowed" landscapes, be inside a major metropolitan area? Breathtaking views from every window are even more dramatic in winter. Words and pictures do not capture the serenity imbued in these two-plus acres. Arrival to the house is up the winding driveway, to wide bluestone steps, an expansive front landing, and, into a sunlit foyer. A wide central hallway leads you to all the downstairs rooms that layout like the spokes on a wheel. Beautiful, big kitchen straight ahead; family room and dining room, and powder room to your right; the breathtaking living room, with windows and doors on three sides and long views of the arboretum, to your left. In the lower level off the kitchen is wine cellar with brick floor and reclaimed barn wood walls. The second floor houses the library, and four bedrooms and three full baths. The master suite is a refuge of serene colors and sumptuous appointments. The spa-like master bath contains a deep, cast iron soaking tub; a large walk in shower with two glass walls; a separate W.C.; and a large walk-in closet. Take in long views of the Arboretum from a covered balcony accessed through French doors in the bedroom. Two more bedrooms share a Jack-and-Jill bath; and the large fourth bedroom has an en suite bath. The second floor library is bright, comfortable, and relaxing. The house was essentially rebuilt in 2012. Roofs were raised; doorways enlarged; interior walls eliminated; steel beams installed; exterior walls "bumped" out; windows enlarged and replaced; exterior stone walls rebuilt and extended; patios enlarged; all interior surfaces redone; all mechanicals replaced. There are two zones of heating and cooling in the main house, one upstairs, and one down. The detached two-car garage has a sink with running water and cabinetry at the garage level, perfect for gardening. Upstairs is a large open space with front windows overlooking the property and the arboretum; a full bath; and separate HVAC. This space could be an office, an in-law suite, an artist's studio, a nanny suite; and is plenty big to add a kitchen area. Do not hesitate in viewing this exquisite property. It is Chestnut Hill at its finest.

As described in the magazine "Architecture", in the 1930's: A nondescript urban dwelling was renovated to be a clean, functional structure, not devoid of beauty, in line with the march of progress in architecture". In the late 1920's Carroll S Tyson Jr., an artist himself, purchased 191 E Evergreen for his friend and artist Arthur B. Carles. Carroll wanted to create an artist studio and residence for Carles and his family. He hired Edmund B. Gilchrist, Architect, to redesign the structure. The transformation was remarkable. Gilchrist literally raised the roof to create an expansive third floor open space studio with north light and roof decks with panoramic city views. The original stone wall at the front of the house was graced with an iron fence. You feel like you are about to enter an Italian Villa as you walk through the iron door in the stone wall. The first and second floors are gracious and comfortable. There is an attached bi-level suite with a kitchenette in the rear of the house, accessible through the home but with a separate entrance off the side yard. Walk to the shops and restaurants of Chestnut Hill, trains to center city, the local library, Morris Arboretum, Woodmere Art Gallery, Kismet Co-Working Space and so much more. ready for your renovation.

This stately Norman style house, designed by Willing, Sims and Talbutt for Dorothy Falcon Platt, and built in 1923, is truly exceptional. Mrs. Platt, a noted horticulturalist and artist, created an unparalleled garden oasis, and the original landscape design has been thoughtfully maintained. The home's design features this garden as an extension of the house, with French doors to the terrace from both the living and dining rooms, and broad windows in the gallery connecting the two rooms. The tall garden wall adds both architectural interest and privacy. A beautiful lap pool for exercise or entertainment has been added to the garden. The lovely first floor interior has living and dining rooms, each with fireplace, butler's pantry and kitchen with adjacent den or breakfast room. The home features three bedrooms and two baths on the second floor, including master suite with fireplace, bath, and dressing room.The third story includes bedroom, bath, study, and extensive storage area. Multiple architectural elements grace the house- balconies, terraces, large fireplaces, handsome millwork and moldings, exposed beams, wide plank floors, large windows, and high ceilings. Incredibly, this private home is just steps away from the shopping and dining of Chestnut Hill, and less than thirty minutes to Center City by car or train.
