Amazing opportunity to live on one of the most sought after blocks in Mount Airy and own a piece of History! This Frank Furness Wissahickon Shist 4br 3 bath Victorian home was designed for Fredrick Clement Gowen, a Grandson of James Gowen, the estate's developer, and needs your help to restore it back to it's original glory. This beautiful home was built in 1885 by the Tourison Brothers, members of a Mount Airy family active in the construction industry for almost 20 years and one of their earliest construction efforts. This home reflects aspects of the Victorian Stick style and the Queen Anne Style. A large front yard and covered porch greets you and leads you into a center hall with a living room w/fireplace, a dining room, also with fireplace, and a small parlor. Down the hall, passing the main and back staircase leads you into the large eat-in kitchen with gas cooking. Through there you enter the sizable laundry area, which houses a full bath and the back door to the large back and side yards. The 2nd floor encompasses a wide center hallway with 4 large bedrooms, one with a den, and 2 full baths. Close to transportation, shopping and everything Mount Airy and Chestnut Hill have to offer! You won't find a house like this, on this block, for this price anytime soon. Don't miss out!!
