917 Dekalb Pike, AMBLER, PA

$599,900 - 5 Beds - 3½ Baths - 1 Half Bath - 3,854 Sqft

The house and grounds are from another era! Starting its life in 1915 as the summer ~cottage~ of the Freihofer family (New York bakery family) this stone Dutch colonial is a gracious grande dame. Located in prestigious Lower Gwynedd it is sited on 3.6 acres. The dramatic front porch sets the stage of a house built lovingly for friends and family. Through the front door is a great room with an open floor plan, beautiful parquet floors and two fireplaces (one gas, one wood). The period mill work, deep windowsills and built ins have tons of character. The sun room with its wall of windows will be the perfect place to relax, read a book, exercise or even work from home while enjoying lots of sunshine. The formal dining room has lots of windows, a pretty stone fireplace wainscoting and inlaid parquet floors and room for everyone at the holidays. The kitchen is perfectly functional but is just waiting for the next owner to open it up to the breakfast room. A large laundry/ mudroom, powder room and a second staircase complete the floor. The gorgeous main staircase leads you to a well proportioned second floor offering four large bedrooms, one with fireplace and two updated bathrooms. The third floor was original for the servants and has hallway gathering area, 3 additional bedrooms and a full bathroom with claw-footed tub. Your out of town family or au pair can have the whole third floor! There is a finished basement -- great for kids and still plenty of room for storage. Large beautiful stone patio overlooking the grounds and fenced pool area. Separate and private in law cottage with kitchen area, full bathroom and walk in closet. This cottage has its own deck overlooking the pool! Even your mother in law would like it! Three car detached garage with stairs to storage room that could be an office or workout room. Easy access to 309, PA Turnpike. Close to shops and restaurants in Spring House Village, English Village and downtown Ambler. Award winning Wissahickon Schools.
