Showings Begin Thursday March 25th. Built in 1896, St. Martin's  Carriage was the original carriage house on the  St. Martin’s Estate. Secluded down a sun speckled driveway lined with weeping willows and Belgian Blocks, you will arrive at St. Martin's Carriage. Designed by Frank Furness and Renovated by Donald Phimister (1980’s), the combination of French Norman and English Cottage architectural details throughout is the prize here in this 3 Bedroom /3 Bathroom/2 Car Attached Garage  “mini chateau”.  The round French Norman tower, Wissahickon Schist Stone, and cedar shake roof will grab your attention immediately. Take a deep breath…you may want to stay for a while.  The park like setting envelopes you with a sense of peace, seclusion, and beauty, yet your one block away from the Philadelphia  Cricket Club, Chestnut Hill Academy, SEPTA train, and a ten minute walk into the Chestnut Hill shops/restaurants. Enter through the front entry foyer into the east facing sunroom and you will be mesmerized by the original stone wall and skylight. The living room is breathtaking in all ways. The original arched entryway for Carriages frames the main window looking out to beautiful lawn, shrubs, and magnificent trees.  The living room opens to a brick terrace facing the gardens. The living room and dining room have hardwood floors, stucco walls, and wood ceilings. The open concept dining room makes entertaining a breeze opening up to both the kitchen and living room. The kitchen, originally the estate potting shed,  was just remodeled : quartz counter tops with polished concrete look - limestone floor in herringbone pattern-  travertine back splash - decorative tiles-  Viking Stove-  Pantry space - Elkay stainless sink - built in microwave. The kitchen opens up to the private slate patio for al fresco dining. Bocce anyone?   Take part in some friendly competition on the Bocce court lined in ferns. The first floor hosts a bedroom with ample closet space. The full hall bath is where the laundry lives. There is an office/den area on this floor.  The second floor welcomes you with a stunning sitting room.  You will notice the original 19th century pine floors and original chestnut beams throughout this floor. The master bedroom suite, once the hayloft when the home was used for horses and carriages, will mesmerize you. The original arched hayloft door with its inset arched window is unique.  The southeast side of the bedroom features 8'  high Pella casement windows installed in 2020 that overlook the gardens and landscaping.  The master bedroom boasts an en suite bathroom. Down the hall is the Norman Tower Room , a circular bedroom,  featuring a  dramatically 20' high magnificent configuration of exposed wood beams.  Each bedroom has large closets and you will find extra storage space with built in counter top storage units in the master bedroom and sitting area. The two Car attached garage was added in 1980 as part of  Phimister's expansion. The finished heated second floor gives you the extra space for a home office, studio, or workout area. Phimister created an ingenious pattern of easements and deed restrictions against fences, overhead wiring, and permanent play equipment in front of the carriage house and adjoining property. Updates include -New Central Air (2020) -200 AMP Electric- Gas Hot Water Heater (2020)-Whole House Purifier (2020).
