    Rarely offered 1923 twin on most desirable, quiet Top-of-the-Hill block. One of just four similar semi-detached homes, this one stands out with its sunny southern exposure and very private setting. Enter via a foyer with tile floor to a living room with fireplace and lovely adjacent sunroom. Across the way is the formal dining room leading to the kitchen and powder room. The updated kitchen has granite counters, stainless-steel appliances, a large pantry/cupboard, and oak floors. The second floor has 3 bedrooms and 2 full baths. The main bedroom has a walk-in closet and private access to the main bath, which also opens onto the hall. Between bedrooms 2 and 3 is another full bath with tub/shower. On the third floor are 2 very large bedrooms and a hall bath with clawfoot tub. There is central air on the second and third floors that also cools the first floor. (Two older through-the-wall air conditioners are not in use). The beautifully landscaped gardens are compact and very manageable, with front & back patios. A detached 1-car garage is accessed via a shared private driveway entered between 8717 and 8719 Shawnee St. A very special home on one of Chestnut Hill's best blocks, so close to everything that makes the Hill a great place to live.

        About Will

        William Papa

        William Papa Insurance Agent

        I have over 10 years of insurance experience helping clients in PA, NJ, and DE with their insurance needs.  Using a consultative approach, I make sure my clients receive the best coverage for the most competitive rate. 

        I graduated from Temple University in 2004 and started my sales career shortly after.  I live in Glenside PA with my wife and two young children, and I help coach their tee-ball and softball teams in the spring.   

        With my free time, I like to do any outdoor activities and enjoy movies.
