Property Description

This stunning Dutch Colonial Revival home sits within the National and Philadelphia Historic District of Overbrook Farms and was architect-designed just after the turn of the century. Before you even enter this magnificent home you are greeted with an open wrap-around porch, Doric columns, a decorative balustrade, and paneled window shutters. Through a 3-pane transom entrance, you are welcomed into a gracious foyer with high ceilings, original seating bench with storage, detailed millwork and Palladian windows flanking the fireplace. The adjoining living room with its built-in bookcases is the perfect place for retreating with a good book or gathering with friends and family. A formal dining room has coved ceilings, chair railings, crown molding and over-sized windows. Through a butler’s pantry with abundant storage, you enter a bright, updated eat-in kitchen with granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, and plenty of recessed lighting. The plant-friendly deep window sills, and built-in shelving for cookbooks make this space even more inviting. Adjacent to the kitchen is a large, renovated utility room with laundry facilities, a pantry closet and exit to a deck, perfect for morning coffee. This floor also provides access to a second stairwell up to the second floor. The grand staircase with decorative balusters and stair brackets, extensive millwork, and an impressive Palladian leaded window, are a stunning reminder of the grandeur of this home. The second floor includes a master ensuite that will take your breath away… completely remodeled with marble tile, glass brick and a large soaking tub, in addition to a separate, incredibly spacious shower and two walk-in closets to suit your needs. 3 other large bedrooms boast details including a fireplace, built-in bookcases, and a large bay window with a custom seating area. These bedrooms share an updated bathroom with a claw foot tub, gray subway tile, designer flooring, and an original marble sink. On the third floor you’ll find 3 additional bedrooms, all with excellent closet space and one with an original linen wardrobe. Another full bath finishes off this floor. The unfinished basement provides for additional storage and the one car garage with an unfinished overhead workshop/studio is connected to the home and can be finished in a myriad of ways to suit the new owners. Unique and original features of the home include a beautiful stone exterior, hardwood floors, and many leaded/stained glass windows, crown molding, incredible closet space, glass doorknobs, five-panel doors, and so much more. 6429 Drexel Road is an architectural splendor that has been tastefully restored, reminding its inhabitants of another time, yet providing the conveniences and ease of modern living. The sought-after historic Overbrook Farms neighborhood is steps from Morris Park and the Overbrook train station for easy access to Center City and maintains the oldest continually operating neighborhood association in the United States, the Overbrook Farms Club (OFC). Come and experience living steps away from all that the Main Line and City Line have to offer in this stunning residence. Welcome Home.
