Property Description for 1708 OLD WELSH RD, HUNTINGDON VALLEY PA 19006

Introducing Woodcrest Manor! This 1908 Georgian Colonial was designed by Brockie & Hastings as the Superintendant's house for the Seybert School for Poor Boys & Girls! After only 10 years, the school closed its doors & this beautiful home became a private residence. Situated on over 5 acres of ground, set far off the road & backing up to the Meadowbrook School (which was founded in 1918 on the grounds of the old Seybert School!), the privacy & serenity of the setting is unparalleled. A circular drive leads to the front door while the 2-car garage, the 2 tractor garage & the chicken coop is tucked into the corner. There is an understated elegance to the home while the scale & proportions are simply perfect! Enter into a glass vestibule, and the original details begin to embrace you from the ~ sawn Douglas Fir flooring to the crown moldings, pocket doors, detailed staircase, 4 fireplaces and other elements. A library, 2nd floor bedroom & screened porch were added to the East side of the house in the 1940s, recently enhanced with real gas light fixtures! The library, L.R. and porch spaces provide excellent opportunities for indoor/outdoor entertainment. A spacious foyer leads out to the rear yard (the former front entrance to the house) and an expansive & level lawn. There is ample room to put in a future pool, or even a horse barn & paddock. The dining room also enjoys views of the rear lawn. The kitchen was expanded by converting the former butler's pantry into a breakfast area. There is an abundance of Cherry cabinets, 2 sinks, 2 ovens, a gas cooktop, dishwasher & a Sub-Zero fridge. A Dutch door leads out to the side yard & garage while the back staircase leads up to the 2nd floor landing. On the 2nd floor, there are 4 bedrooms each with their own private en-suite baths. The master occupies the Eastern wing with an entire wall of closets. The master bath is tasteful with historic tiles, a pedestal sink, an antique tub & stall shower (recently refreshed with a new shower pan). One of the other bedrooms on the 2nd floor has a fireplace, while the original linen storage closets are off another one of the bedrooms. The third floor has 2 more bedrooms, a completely remodeled hall bathroom and a large playroom/office. There is even a walk-in cedar closet. The laundry is in the basement, yet is has huge windows and a door to the side yard that keeps it quite bright! A 30' x 54' fenced vegetable garden is tucked into the rear corner of the property.
