It was the find of the season:  a well-appointed, modest-sized 3-story semi-detached home with 5-6 bedrooms and 2 full baths in the popular Mount Airy Village neighborhood.

Loretta Witt Homes hosted an open house on a sunny Sunday afternoon at the beginning of April, and had over 40 groups visit during the open house.

Everyone at the open house praised the new knock-out kitchen--completely re-designed with an airy openness to the rest of the first floor. Unusual for the neighborhood, and flooded with light all day from south-facing new windows.

Also popular was the airy master suite on the second floor. Featuring walk-in closets, a separate dressing room, and a new full bath with heated ceramic tile floor, this set-up could also be used as two separate bedrooms, if desired, by new owners.

Finally, out the back door from the kitchen, one entered a private fenced rear yard with patio and lovely garden beds.  

Located just down the street from Carpenter Woods of the Fairmount Park system, a short walk to the Wissahickon Creek, two blocks from Weavers' Way Food Co-op and the High Point Cafe, Mt. Airy's favorite coffee shop.  Bus and commuter train convenient.  A 20 minute drive to Center City Philadelphia or to highways to the world.  Location, location, location! And great house, too! 

With FOUR offers in less than a week on the market, 6830 Wayne Avenue sold for over the asking price.
