    Description

    The best of modern design with an environmental ethic, enviable location, and style to spare. This 4-bedroom, 2-bath home offers remarkable year-round views into Fairmount Park from its 0.4-acre perch on the park's edge. Its architecture, while minimalistic, surprises with an entry hidden from the street. The dramatically darkened exterior purposefully contrasts with the light-filled, voluminous interior. Cozy bedrooms open onto loft-like common spaces with soaring 14-foot ceilings, and the interior design easily fits within the pages of Dwell and Architectural Record. Every detail has been thoughtfully considered for you, including high-end materials like triple glaze Alpen windows, Miele cooktop, Fisher & Paykel refrigerator, Duravit and Grohe fixtures, Velux solar tubes, and a Velux skylight that automatically close at the first drops of rain. Your ultimate comfort is ensured by the radiant heat under concrete and reclaimed Scandinavian white oak planks to warm you in the winter and a white roof to reflect heat and keep you cool in the summer. The house has been designed to Passive House Standards as a superinsulated structure that exceeds even LEED certified standards for a sealed building envelope. The home has energy recovery ventilation which help significantly lower energy bills, by exchanging the energy of normally exhausted air to precondition incoming outdoor ventilation air. This attention to the environment extends to its gardens, which have been wildlife certified and feature native Pennsylvania plants including pink muhly grass, little bluestem, staghorn sumac, bluemist flower, milkweed, and switchgrass among many others. It is very low maintenance with no irrigation needed. The location is remarkable being just minutes by car into center city Philadelphia, close to major expressways and Chestnut Hill, and even walkable into the heart of West Mt Airy Village, with Weaver's Way Cooperative Grocery, High Point Cafe, Big Blue Marble Bookstore, two dry cleaners, Henry Elementary School, and much more. This is a truly rare opportunity to own this kind of architecturally stunning, environmentally friendly, and forward-looking home in the Philadelphia region.
