    Description

    Welcome to 543 E Durham. Situated on a lovely block lined with mature trees in the Sedgwick Farms neighborhood of East Mt. Airy, this gorgeous Wissahickon schist single is a prime example of numerous improvements that honor the home's architectural details and maintain its character. From the wide street with plenty of parking you immediately notice the lush front lawn. Charming stone pillars flank the walkway that leads to a lovely patio seating area made private by a manicured hedge. Enter the house by way of a very large three-season sunroom. From there enter the living room with original oak floors, an elegant wood-burning fireplace, and custom built-ins. Details such as picture frame molding and crown molding coupled with the tasteful paint colors result in a style that is both casual and refined. The gracious dining room with its bay window is ready for anything from weekday dinners to holiday entertaining. An original double swing butler door leads conveniently into the kitchen. This completely updated kitchen is bright, sunny, charming, and best of all functional with deep sill windows, custom white shaker cabinetry, honed absolute black granite counters, integrated Blanco sink, and stainless Kitchen Aid appliances. With 3 lazy susans and a pullout pantry, there is ample cabinet space. A built-in banquette breakfast nook with additional under-bench storage finishes off the kitchen area. Access the fully fenced large back yard from a convenient mudroom entry off of the kitchen. Take the wide stairwell filled with natural light from the large arched window. On the second floor are the large sunny primary suite, two other bedrooms, and a recently updated hall bath. The hall bath features heated tumbled marble tile floors, white subway tile with chair rail detail, and a stylish marble top vanity. Continue up to the third floor to find two more bedrooms (currently used as an office and game room), and another very large bedroom (currently used as a family room) with the sweetest quarter-circle windows. The third full bath was also recently renovated with sea-inspired glass subway tiles in the custom frameless glass door shower, marble top vanity, and built-in shelf storage. The laundry is located in the unfinished lower level which is large and provides plenty of storage space. A detached one-car garage with a storage loft is accessible from a door in the yard. Parking in the garage is accessed from Durham Street via a shared drive.
