It is impossible not to marvel at the unique architecture and endless potential of this enchanting French Norman style home by architect/builder Henry D. Dagit & Sons. Filled with original features, such as its castle-like turret with grand curved staircase, unique wood beam ceilings, Juliette balconies, French doors, stone and hardwood floors and three beautiful wood burning fireplaces. It is located in the safe, friendly and walkable neighborhood with easy access to the city; 1309 Morris Road is located in the Minden Manor area of Wynnewood, and gives you old-world charm with modern day conveniences.
When you enter this home, the foyer leads you to a spacious, light-filled living room with timeless, elegant features like the wood beam ceiling, built-in bookcase, coat closet, hard wood floors and an exquisite crested stone wood-burning fireplace. From the living room, walk directly through the French door onto the covered flagstone porch used throughout the year. To the left of the living room is the formal dining room, with doors leading to a Butlers pantry and into the eat-in kitchen, the perfect place to host all your grand holiday parties. Off the kitchen, you will find a mudroom/pantry, the laundry room and direct access to an attached two-car garage.
In the turret, a small powder room is located under the curved staircase with a wrought iron railing, which leads you to the second floor. Here you will find the primary bedroom, which boasts hardwood floors, a wood-burning fireplace, a large deep closet, charming Juliette balcony, and a separate sitting/dressing room with additional closet space and private full bath. Also on the second floor, there are 3 other bedrooms with hardwood floors, one of which also has a Juliette balcony. Two of the bedrooms share a bathroom and the other has its own private full bath.
A back hallway leads you to 2 other rooms that can be used as a quiet office space, exercise room, a cheerful playroom, or as additional bedrooms. From here, a back staircase conveniently leads you back down to the kitchen.
The lower and upper levels of this home are full of possibilities. Downstairs you will find a basement with a wood burning fireplace, wood beam ceilings, and plenty of potential space for an entertainment/game room, workshop, storage space, and a coal cellar that can be converted to a stylish wine cellar. Meanwhile upstairs, the extensive attic is fully floored with hardwood, with high ceilings and a large walk in cedar closet and runs the entire length of the house. The attic can be used as an art studio, additional family room or additional bedrooms and is waiting for your finishing touch.
