Description

Welcome to the Jesse A Tilge House, a one-of-a-kind and truly stunning home in the Pelham district of West Mount Airy. Designed by renowned Philadelphia architect George T Pearson, this exquisitely detailed and elegant property features striking craftsmanship and has been meticulously restored to preserve its historic heritage and provide every modern amenity. The 6-bedroom, 6-bath house is set high up off the street and sits on almost an acre. Enter through the dramatic Dutch door to a grand foyer with exquisite millwork, soaring ceilings, and fireplace. To the left is a charming living room with leaded glass windows that connects to a formal dining room with built-in buffets and fireplace. At the center of this distinguished home is a state-of-the-art kitchen with brand new custom cabinetry, high end appliances, and a spacious 10 stone island that complement the coffered ceiling, wood-paneled walls, and large stained-glass window. The butlers pantry has been modernized with floor to ceiling custom pantries and wet bar. Also on the first floor are mud room, laundry room, powder room, and an abundance of storage space. An enclosed sunroom leads out to the large rear yard, wrap around vaulted porch, and newly paved driveway for 3+ cars. Ascend the magnificent central staircase, awash in the soft light that filters through a massive stained-glass window. On the 2nd floor is a grand primary suite with large dressing room featuring wall length custom closets and fireplace. The luxurious light-filled primary bathroom offers classic elegance with a custom shower, restored clawfoot tub, and large linen closet. Two additional bedrooms on the second floor, accessible by a secondary staircase, have large closets and fireplaces and bathroom. On the third floor are three bedrooms, two full bathrooms, one half bathroom as well as an expansive family room with kitchenette. The multi-light and leaded glass windows have been painstakingly restored. This magnificent home, historically designated in 2022, features upgrades and amenities including central air, updated electrical and plumbing, designer lighting, and refinished hardwood floors throughout. Restored from top to bottom, this house is conveniently located close to the Upsal St. train station and with easy access to the shops and dining in Mount Airy, Chestnut Hill, and downtown Philadelphia. This captivating home will take your breath away! Extensive improvements list is available upon request.
