|Built in 1888 for the Robert’s Family by late 19th century architect George T. Pearson. This ample Queen Anne style home, with stone and brick exterior, has been slowly restored by its current owner and is now ready for its next steward. It sits at over 6,000 square feet on more than 1/4 acre and offers 7 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, with impressive original details including: wood floors throughout, original built-ins and closets, tile surrounded fireplaces (not lined), and a massive arched stained glass window.
Enter into an impressive entry surrounded by beautiful original wood-paneled walls. The living areas and dining room are expansive with large original windows. The dining room has a beautiful coffered ceiling and built in cabinets with leaded and beveled glass. Tile surrounded fireplaces are prominent features on this floor. The showpiece is the stairway leading to the original arched stained glass window in the front of the home. Rounding out the first floor is the butler’s pantry, eat-in kitchen, full bath, and original sunroom off the kitchen.
Step out back to the newer deck and take in the mature garden with dogwood trees, flowering shrubs, herbs, and flowering perennials which attract birds and wildlife throughout the year. The above ground pool with deck surrounding will become your favorite place to relax on a long summer day.
The expansive 2nd floor features 4 large bedrooms, 2 additional fireplaces, window seats, library with a large bay window and full bath. The 3rd floor, with 3 large bedrooms and full bath is ready for you to restore back to its former glory! The full bathroom has its original fixtures but is not connected to plumbing.
Wingohocking Heights has 4 houses. Surrounded by trees with very little traffic, it feels like a quiet country lane. The street is a privately owned/dead end block with plenty of parking for the residents. Conveniently located near the Germantown Kitchen Garden Farm Stand, Uncle Bobby’s Books, Weavers Way Co op, Wissahickon Valley Park, Germantown Friends and Greene Street Friends Schools, Central High School, Chestnut Hill East and Chestnut Hill West Septa train lines.
