Favorite
Share
This historical 130 year old elaborate corner Red and Green Victorian row house sits on a wide sidewalk, tree lined block of Philadelphia's Spruce Hill neighborhood. Brothers George Watson Hewittt and William Dempster Hewitt designed the group of Queen Anne houses in 1886 as a unified whole marked by dramatic gables, a bold color scheme, and mixed materials. This Hewitt home is a beautiful blend of Queen Anne characteristics, with some High Victorian flare. The porches feature whimsical, welcoming columns and spindles. A decorative bargeboard adorns the gable over the porch. Graceful brackets enhance the edges of the home and the 3rd floor Juliet balcony. The historic exterior is paired with an updated interior that seamlessly integrates original details such as ornate fireplaces, original wood floors, mahogany pocket doors, moldings and stained glass windows while also featuring updated fixtures, kitchen bathrooms etc. The backyard is shaded and private with a blue-stone patio, fire pit, lounging platform, hot tub and small vegetable garden and lawn. The first row home of the block, is a total of 4800 sq ft, 7 bedrooms, 3 bathroom. The home also includes a small library, music room, painting studio and ceramic studio.
