8501 Parkwood LANE, Philadelphia, PA 19128
Torn between the city and the 'burbs? Now you don't have to choose: 8501 Parkwood Lane gives you the best of both. This stunning home is on a corner lot of a cul-de-sac hugged by Wissahickon Park in Philadelphia's quiet Andorra neighborhood. At over 3200 square feet, PLUS a huge partially-finished basement, this home has plenty of room to spread out. The first floor features formal living and dining rooms, family room with cathedral ceiling and gas fireplace, study with glass French doors and built in bookcase and desk, and half bath. The designer kitchen is massive, with a 9-ft granite island, Thermadour cooktop and hood, Bosch dishwasher, Viking wine fridge, built-in double ovens, walk-in pantry, under-cabinet lighting, and so much cabinet space! There are hardwood floors throughout the first floor as well as built-in speakers in several rooms. The stairs and upstairs hallway are open to below, providing extra natural light throughout the home. Double French doors at the end of the hall reveal the master suite with sitting area, custom walk-in closet, and spacious bath. The master bath features double vanity, jetted soaking tub, and glass-doored shower. There are 3 additional large light-filled bedrooms, all with ceiling fans and wall-to-wall neutral carpeting, and a hall bath with laundry. The basement is partially finished with plush carpeting and high ceilings, perfect for a game room or gym. The unfinished space is truly massive (bowling, anyone?!) and well lit, perfect for storing anything and everything. This home also has an attached 2-car garage and a driveway! The perfectly landscaped lot is nearly 1/3 of an acre, with a fenced backyard, large paver patio, irrigation system, and views of the park. Easy Wissahickon Park trail access across the street. When you're looking out on your freshly-mowed lawn, surrounded by trees and catching the occasional glimpse of wildlife, you'll easily forget this is still Philadelphia; yet only a 20-min drive or quick train ride and you're in Center City!
