This exceptionally roomy, beautifully maintained and updated center hall stone Colonial on one of the area's prettiest blocks will fill the bill for many of today's buyers. Built c.1930 and located on premier Gates St in sought after Roxborough, the 3-story home includes 4 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms and over 3500 square feet of gracious living on almost a third of an acre of beautiful outdoor space. Step into the impeccable interior with its expansive entrance hall, gracious staircase, gleaming hardwood floors. Note the high ceilings and the numerous windows letting in natural light everywhere. On the right is the elegant living room with its handsome fireplace and french doors opening to an airy porch. The formal dining room with its charming corner cupboard, is big enough for any gathering. The good size kitchen has been updated with granite counters, pretty tile backsplash and all new appliances. There are plenty of cabinets and an adjoining pantry. This area opens to a delightful outdoor patio. Off the kitchen is the sunny breakfast room, the comfortable den/family room and a powder room. On the 2nd floor, past the lovely stain glass windows with bench seating, is the primary bedroom suite with its wall of closets, adjoining office which could also serve as a dressing/exercise room or nursery plus the newer tile bathroom with its glass shower and radiant heat floor. There are two other good size bedrooms on this level and the all new hall bathroom with beautiful tile work and generous counters. The third floor includes the spacious 4th bedroom and an amazing attic offering endless room for storage. There is a full basement with laundry area, mechanicals and work space. The home is equipped with 2-zone central air and a new 200 amp electrical service. Windows have been replaced throughout the home and the exterior recently painted. Outside mature trees, shrubs and plantings (the azaleas are dazzling!) abound. There is a sweeping back yard and a detached 2-car garage. Conveniently located 552 Gates is an easy walk to vibrant Gorgas Park, the interesting shops and eateries along Ridge Ave. It is easily accessible to Wissahickon Valley Park and Forbidden Drive for outdoor recreation, to I-76 and Kelly Drive. Center City is just 15 minutes away. This home is a true classic, not to be missed!
