A very rare offering. 8315 Seminole Street, built in 1925 by G.W. & W.D Hewitt architects and situated on one of the most prestigious streets in the charming enclave of Chestnut Hill, has been fully restored and re-envisioned for modern living. In 2014, under the guidance of Philadelphia architect John S. Andrews Inc. and in collaboration with a leading NYC interior designer and Chestnut Hill's Starr Osborne, this property was updated to perfection. Upon entering the large three-story foyer, one is embraced by the homes charm and elegance. The living room with a new gas burning fireplace and large original glass windows overlooks the lush surrounding landscape. On the other side of the entry foyer is the dazzling dining room with new shimmering wall covering and chandelier. A lovely sun porch flows off the dining room and offers floor to ceiling views of the property's specimen trees. Also on the first floor are a chic new study with grass cloth wall covering and new custom milled bookshelves, a new powder room, and a new elegant eat-in kitchen with custom cabinetry, Joanne Hudson tile backsplash, Calcutta gold marble countertops, Subzero, Wolf and Bosch appliances, radiant heat floors, banquette seating for up to 10 and a wet bar perfect for entertaining. The kitchen connects to a mudroom with custom cubbies and extra storage. From the mudroom, one can exit to the back terrace that leads to the pebbled patio and a detached two-car garage. On the second and third floors, there are a total of 5/6 bedrooms and 4 full baths as well as a new second-floor laundry room and playroom, both spaces with fitted with custom built-ins. The 2nd-floor master is complete with original wood burning fireplace, new dressing room with island, and an en-suite master bath with two sinks and a large shower with Calcutta gold porcelain tiles from Porcelanosa. All bathrooms were masterfully updated by Dennis F. Meyer Inc. and the whole house was renovated by a team of artisans. All new electrical, a new high-efficiency natural gas heating system, 3 zones of high-velocity cooling as well as a basement cedar closet have been added for modern living. The manageable grounds, just under half an acre, have been skillfully designed over the last four years. New pebble patios, garden beds, and a newly planted wall of trees all help create an outdoor sanctuary. In addition, landscape lighting was added to elegantly note the beauty of the yard and the home in the evening. The homes stone foundation has been sealed and masons have professionally tuck pointed the facade. Premium wireless service throughout the home installed by World Wide Stereo and a new sound system on the main level make 8315 Seminole the rarest of finds a new home steeped in the tradition of the past and one perfect for entertaining and family life.
