Property Description

Designed and built by renowned architect John Graham, JR in 1915,“The Orchard” is a great American house. This classic 8,645 sqft Colonial Revival estate was built in 1916 for the Wetherill family on almost 2 acres. The pedigree of this architectural masterpiece has been documented in Town & Country magazine's June 1919 edition and the book “Important American Houses” by Keefe in 1922.Originally built as a country estate,the first floor consists of grand entrance hall, formal living room, dining room, library, family room, and kitchen; all tied together by a light-filled 30'x6' gallery. The dining room features its original antique Zuber mural, “Views of North America,” painstakingly restored to its original splendor. This mural predates the exact copy that First Lady Jackie Kennedy had installed in the Diplomatic Room of the White House in 1961. Moving towards the chef inspired kitchen, notice 48” Viking Range & ample storage. Ascending the grand staircase to find the primary suite, featuring an updated bath, his & her dressing rooms/closets, fireplace, and lovely summer sleeping porch. Three more spacious bedrooms with fireplaces and private baths complete the second floor. The tfloor is comprised of a bedroom suite, a vaulted billiard room, and a large walk-in cedar closet converted to an additional recreational room. A 2-bedroom apartment, with its own entrance, is the perfect space for guests, in-laws, or an au-pair suite or professional office. The converted barn includes a 2-car garage and exercise/dance studio which could be perfect for your home office. This home is conveniently located within walking distance to Chestnut Hill also known as Philadelphia Garden District, public transportation, restaurants, shops and an easy commute to Center City, PHL Airport and much more.
