Incredible opportunity to own one of the most stately properties in Elkins Park ?a 1920's stone Colonial situated amid lush gardens on nearly an acre. Available for the first time since it was constructed for Philadelphia businessman Morris Kaufmann in 1924, this beautiful 6-bedroom house has remained within the same family ever since. Built to the most exacting standards of its time, this home and its lush gardens retain much of their original magnificence but require work to update them. There's a separate two-bedroom apartment above the garage with a private entrance which can be used as a studio, in-law suite and more. As you walk through the front door into the expansive foyer, you feel as if you're transported to a bygone era. The original marble tiles and art deco-inspired marble staircase (marble imported from Italy) exude a feeling of elegance. Sunlight flows through the French Doors which offer immediate views of the backyard gardens to all who enter the home. To the left, the spacious living room with one of three fireplaces in the home, two towering built-in book shelves and wrought-iron wall sconces, which along with the foyer chandelier, were created by famed metalworker Samuel Yellin. A trio of French Doors open onto the garden terrace making for excellent indoor/outdoor entertaining space. On the opposite side of the foyer is the dining room where you'll find a fireplace and French Doors which also provide access to the garden terrace. There is a large butler pantry which adjoins the kitchen and has a rear staircase leading to the second floor. Upstairs, in the master bedroom, you'll find a fireplace, windows on three walls and a walk-in closet with cabinets and drawers. The master bathroom, which has a separate shower stall and bath, leads to a second room which could be used as a bedroom or office. The third bedroom has a full en-suite bathroom and, like the master bedroom, a set of French Doors which access a Juliet balcony overlooking the gardens
