Property Description

Ideal Blue Bell Hill location! Lovingly updated 2 1/2 story twin home with 5 bedrooms and 1 1/2 baths. Thought to be built c. 1880, it was part of the community that grew up around RittenhouseTown, the nation's first papermill and the only papermill operating in North America between 1687 and 1727. All the mills along the Wissahickon Creek were closed down in the mid 1800's, but the community of Blue Bell Hill has been popular ever since and now enjoys proximity to what is now Historic RittenhouseTown, a National Historic Landmark District, to the resources of nearby neighborhoods of Germantown, Mount Airy and Roxborough, as well as the natural sylvan resources of Fairmount Park and the Wissahickon Creek. But what you really need to know is that this is a great house on a great block! You are welcomed at the front porch by a freshly painted exterior and new porch railings, new shutters and a front door with leaded glass transom. Inside is an abundance of natural light, bamboo floors throughout, all newly painted interior, beautiful crown molding. 1st floor: living room with stone fireplace that glows with a remote-controlled electric flame, flat screen TV with surround sound over the fireplace mantel; a stunning archway with architectural columns on either side creates an open, spacious feel as one enters the dining room with exquisite chandelier; The kitchen, completely gutted and renovated in 2017, boasts granite countertops, marble backsplash, custom wood cabinets offering lots of storage, 5 burner gas stove with built-in microwave above, stainless steel sink with designer faucet. All appliances are stainless steel and Energy Star/energy efficient; One goes through a multi-pane glass door to the mud room that has been renovated to provide a terrific powder room, deep closet for storage, stacked washer and dryer, then exit to patio and gardens in rear. 2nd floor: 3 nice-sized bedrooms (one currently used as a terrific closet-room), hall closet, and full bathroom with glass enclosed shower over tub, wainscoting and marble topped vanity. 3rd floor: 2 more bedrooms, hall closet, deep window sills perfect for reading nooks.

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,"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":""}
