A sweet house and an opportunity for comfortable living on a great block: This two-story brick twin with 3 bedrooms, 1 1/2 baths sits on a block where neighbors are proud of their gardens, where young and old enjoy walking to the Avenue, where families come outside on Halloween night to trick or treat together. This is a caring Chestnut Hill neighborhood with vitality and pride. 35 East Abington Avenue is centrally located on the block. One enters a glass-enclosed front porch (all new casement windows!). There is no dividing wall between the living room and dining room. Instead, it is one large airy space with gleaming wood floors and never-painted wood trim. The eat-in kitchen is warm and attractive with handsome cabinetry, ample new granite counters, gas cooking, new stainless steel sink and faucet and garbage disposal, new dishwasher, refrigerator/freezer, brand new flooring, ceiling fan and plenty of room for table and chairs. A heated "mudroom" in the rear offers cabinetry, too, along with a 2nd stainless steel sink with new faucet. The back door leads to a quite wonderful hand-crafted deck built in 2020 with enough room for your chairs and a grill. It overlooks a delightful, fully fenced yard with sunlit forsythia blooming in the spring with other perennials. 2nd floor: 3 bedrooms (2 large and 1 small), one of which has a full wall of closets. A brand new full bath, completely renovated in 2021 , offers new service and drain piping, ceramic tile flooring and half wall and subway tile surround over the new tub and shower, new toilet, new pedestal sink, new lighting. The full basement is unfinished, with utilities, a high ceiling, shelving, and a half bath, ready for storage or work space. Laundry with washer and dryer are in the rear. It exits through a Bilco door to the rear gardens. Gas hot water Crown boiler (1997); gas-fired domestic hot water heater (2018); 200 AMP CB electric panel. All knob & tube wiring has been removed or disconnected in 2018. New main roof (2018); replacement windows -except mudroom-throughout house (2013); front slate steps re-built (2021). 35 East Abington Avenue is a block from Germantown Avenue's shops and restaurants. It is a short walk to the commuter train line or to the bus. It's a 25 minute drive to Center City. Nearby is all the natural beauty of the Wissahickon Valley and its numerous trails.
