Property Description

This distinctive Victorian home offers the luxury of space and the warmth of detail that typify the 1870's era in architecture. With 5 bedrooms and 2.5 baths, this 3-story brick and stone semi-detached home has a delightful wrap-around front porch, high ceilings, bright large sunny rooms, beautiful walnut inlaid oak floors, and lots of original character. The first floor features an entryway that leads to a formal living area with crown molding and a faux fireplace. The dining/kitchen area is open and bright, serving as the “heart” of the home with the flexibility to host a small diner party with friends or a large holiday celebration with family. There is a convenient first floor powder room. The kitchen itself is particularly functional space with good counters, abundant cabinetry/shelving, gas cooking, and dishwasher. The wonderfully organized mud room at the rear of the house helps keep order to the ebb and flow of daily life with an exit to the large fenced yard and gardens. The second-floor features three large bedrooms, one with intricate fireplace mantel, each with closets, including an unusually large primary bedroom with attached dressing area, a south facing deck. A convenient 2nd floor laundry is in the hall. The hall bath has been updated with shower over tub. All interior bedroom doors feature the added touch of transom windows. The third floor boasts two bedrooms with one adjacent to a kitchen and a large entertainment space. This floor is ideal as a great in-law suite or for a live-in au pair. Additionally, there is a working dumb waiter that serves all three floors! Basement: full, unfinished, high ceilinged for utilities, storage and work area. The yard is large, fenced, and includes a beautiful garden, many fruit trees and shrubs, and private patio. The detached one car garage opens on Earlham Terrace in the rear. The house also features gas heat, solar electric with panels on the garage roof, tankless hot water, heater and many other energy efficient features. The 200 block of Winona Street is a quiet, tree lined residential street that enjoys beautiful, cared-for homes and gardens and an 84 walk-score. It is a tight-knit community with monthly potlucks or get-togethers, block clean-ups and more. It boasts a location that is a short walk to the Wissahickon Creek area of Fairmount Park, a 10-minute drive to Center City Philadelphia, or a 2.5 block walk to the Chelten Avenue Station of the Chestnut Hill West line that takes you to Center City or 30th Street Amtrak Station and the airport. This is a wonderful and unique house tailored for working/learning from home and enjoying the outdoors. It is an example of historic Germantown at its best. Come see this gem of a property right away! Quick settlement possible.

I feel extremely fortunate to have been very successful. As a matter of fact, my team and I have been sales leaders in our office every year. I am in the top 1\/2 of the top 1% of sale agents nationwide in the Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices network. Hard work, organization, attention to detail, education and really wonderful clients have all contributed to the yearly sales production. I think, most of all, my success may be due to realizing that life isn\u2019t just real estate.\nLife, for me, has been a coming together of all kinds of opportunities and terrific people, starting with my wonderful husband, Tom, my three super children, John, Chris and Susan, my beautiful grandchildren, Iris, Phoebe, Teddy, Gus, Will, Beatrice and Olive and a coterie of warm and caring friends. Taking a break with family and friends is very important. It\u2019s what makes it possible for me to give the sustained professional attention to your real estate transactions when you need me. And it makes it possible to look outside myself, as we all must do, to give back to my community whenever I can.\nAnd I love Philadelphia! What a marvelous city offering so many opportunities! How lucky Tom and I have been to be able to raise our children here. Philadelphia is full of the gritty realities of a northeastern city. It has its share of urban blight, poverty, and crime. But it also offers neighborhoods with character and tradition, great museums, a world-class orchestra, innovative theatre, extraordinary educational institutions, the vitality of cultural diversity, a rich texture of history and architecture, and, amazingly, more sylvan parkland within its borders than any other city in the country. Not to mention some of the best restaurants in the country! This is a city of extraordinary accomplishment, and it is full of promise. It is a place where a person can make a mark. It is a place where the rewards of reaching out are without measure.\nSo, no, life isn\u2019t just real estate. For me, it is also family, friends, my wonderful team, the Germantown Friends School, Habitat for Humanity, Historic Germantown and Chestnut Hill Historical Societies, my block of Pulaski Avenue, the National Trust for Historic Preservation, Lyric Fest, Preservation Alliance, the Academy of Natural Sciences, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, Germantown Relief Society and more.\n","area_of_expertise":"REALTOR\u00ae, Associate Broker, Team Leader","team":false,"office_cpt":false,"awards":false,"languages_spoken":[],"facebook":"https:\/\/\/lorettawitthomes\/","twitter":"","instagram":"https:\/\/\/lorettawitthomes\/","pinterest":"","google_plus":"","linkedin":"https:\/\/\/in\/loretta-witt-0376576\/","youtube":"","region_heading":"My Regions Of Expertise","region_description":"","agent_regions":false,"neighborhoods_heading":"My Neighborhoods Of Expertise","neighborhoods_description":"","agent_neighborhoods":false,"hide_properties_section":false,"agent_properties_section_heading":"Featured Listings","agent_properties_section_description":"","use_default_settings_for_agent_listings":false,"disable_search_with_me":false,"testimonial_section_title":"What My Clients Say","testimonial_section_description":"","testimonials_data_source":"testimonials-cpt","testimonial_data":false,"enable_agent_press_section":false,"agent_primary_menu_id":"","agent_footer_menu_id":"","agent_custom_logo":false,"agent_featured_properties_settings":{"display_listings_in_tabs":false,"show_sales_tab":false,"show_sold_tab":false,"show_rentals_tab":false,"show_rented_tab":false,"show_commercial_sales_tab":false,"show_commercial_rental_tab":false,"show_commercial_sold_tab":false,"listing_type":["residential_sales"],"listing_status":["active_all"],"limit":"10","must_have_photo":true,"min_bedrooms":"","min_bathrooms":"","min_price":"","show_only_my_properties":true,"office_ids":[{"office_id":"B61010"}],"ids":false,"sort_by":["listing_date_desc"],"backfill_properties_settings":{"agent_properties_count_less":"10","show_only_exclusive":false,"es_filter_properties_by_teams":false,"more_backfill_criteria":{"listing_type":["residential_sales"],"listing_status":["active_all"],"must_have_photo":true,"min_bedrooms":"","min_bathrooms":"","min_price":"","sort_by":["listing_date_desc"]}}},"title":"","custom_html":"","office_address":"","disable_listings_slider":false,"featured_listings_short_code":"","scripts":{"header_scripts":""}}
