1004 Sharpless Road is a historic 5,600 sq ft beauty located in Melrose Park, one of Philadelphia's first "bedroom communities.” Built in 1920 as a center-stairway Colonial with stone exterior, this stately suburban home features seven spacious bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms, including a master suite with steam sauna and walk-in closet. Gleaming hardwood floors throughout have been excellently maintained. The foyer features an oversized coat closet, parquet floors, and an original antique chandelier. Stained glass windows appoint the stairway landing meeting a cozy window seat to enjoy the sunset. The generous living room features a wood-burning, manteled-fireplace, double French doors, recessed dimmable lighting, and dual ceiling fans. Two full-sized sunrooms are perfect for parties and entertaining guests. The fully-complemented outdoor kitchen, raised deck, and gazebo accent the great entertainment spaces. The spacious dining room features another original antique chandelier and has capacity to seat more than 25 guests. The kitchen features a separate gas cooktop and suspended stainless-steel exhaust hood, dual modern chandeliers, double ovens, ample cabinet storage, center island and an oversized pantry. An adjacent kitchenette is perfect for relaxing and enjoying your morning tea or coffee. Energy efficient windows throughout and five-zone, gas-fired boilers keep energy costs in check. Enter from the covered rear deck into the mud room/laundry. A separate first floor room with exterior entrance is perfect as a home office or in-law suite. The basement runs the full gamut of the house with a workshop and partially-finished family room with its own wood-burning fireplace, perfect for a 100" home theater system. A second-story sunroom overlooks the 0.75 acre lot with immaculately maintained gardens surrounded on three sides by old-growth timbers offering year-round privacy. The driveway leads to a detached, oversized two-car garage with electric opener. Being minutes away from the Regional Rail offers convenient access to the City. Excellent schools, nearby shops, and parks make for the perfect location to raise a family or retire in comfort.
