Agent Remarks

We are extremely proud to offer 424 West Mermaid Lane, a truly spectacular property; designed by Edmund Gilchrist, one of the most interesting figures in Philadelphia's rich architectural history. Built in 1923 for Schofield Andrews, an original partner at Ballard Spahr, and later home for many years to beloved Philadelphian Richardson Dilworth. Feast your eyes on this magnificent, stone residence, beautifully sited on 1.59 acres, just a short walk to the Wissahickon Trails. The first floor features a brightly lit, gracious floor plan with coveted architectural details and moldings, meticulously and lovingly maintained. Large entry hall with dramatic staircase, formal living room, dining room and a handsome paneled library, all with fireplaces. Gourmet kitchen/family room, opening onto a large, walled, terrace and garden. Upstairs, in addition to a gorgeous master suite with a fireplace and terrace, two floors of family bedrooms, baths, offices and comfortable living spaces. Fantastic apartment with separate entrance perfect for office, in-laws or au pair. Immaculate basement with paneled media room, bar, wine room and tons of square footage. State of the art thermostats,lighting, sound and security throughout makes this home the "smartest" in Chestnut Hill! Outside, beautifully designed stone walls, gorgeous perennial gardens, blue stone terraces that will simply knock you out, creating an extremely private setting within walking distance to the Chestnut Hill village, schools, transportation and the Wissahickon trails. Quite simply, it doesn't get any better than this!
