313 Maple Ave, Wyncote, PA 19095

Welcome to Quick’s View! Martin Luther Kohler purchased a ten acre parcel in 1886 from Henry Lippincott to develop new housing for the families that were striving to leave the city for the country life. A total of 16 parcels were created on those 10 acres. In researching the history of the property, a newspaper article from October 6, 1892 had the following entry, “House and lot in Cheltenham, T.J. Dougherty to Harriet B. Quick, $6,000.” She was married to Abram Feaster Quick. Mr. Quick was a dry goods merchant, and that’s about all we can find out about the original family. What stands today at 313 Maple Avenue is an understated Victorian, filled with period details in the main house & the carriage house. A stone wall extends the entire length of the front yard. There is a sidewalk to the wrap around porch & a driveway that extends through the porte cochere to the carriage house. On the front entry door, you’ll find the original turn-type door “bell” remains a functioning welcome for guests to the home right in the door itself. The entry foyer is quite large with a built-in bench located under the staircase.

The front parlor has another set of French doors that lead down to the porte cochere. A large cased opening doubles the living space into the living room with a bay & built-in window seats. The fireplace is enhanced with a gas insert. The original wood floors have an inlayed border in a Greek key detail. There is a coat closet under the staircase before entering the dining room. The original built-in china cabinet has beautiful leaded glass doors. The bay window overlooks the side yard. There are leaded glass windows throughout the front three rooms. The butler’s pantry retains one original cabinet & a powder room was added off this space. The kitchen was just renovated in 2024 with new quartz counters, plumbing, fixtures, sink, cooktop and flooring. One original cabinet from the 1890’s remains and is a beautiful contrast (in natural wood) to the white painted cabinets throughout the rest of the kitchen. The island can seat 3 people & a walk-in pantry. The primary bedroom overlooks the front & side yards.

A smaller room is a perfect home office that has French doors to the roof over the front porch. Another large bedroom has been outfitted with a built-in closet organization system, making the entire bedroom a large dressing room & closet. The rear bedroom has windows facing south and east. The 1st hall bathroom has a stall shower. The 2nd hall bathroom was renovated in 2016 with a beautifully detailed tub & shower combination (with a rain shower) and an extra-large, dual vanity. Both of the bathrooms have leaded glass windows that provide for privacy. On the 3rd floor, the rear bedroom is the largest of the rooms and has a window overlooking the carriage house. The side bedroom is currently set-up as another “work from home” space. The final bedroom on the 3rd floor overlooks the side and front yards. There is one more room on the 3rd floor that does not have a closet, and is simply used for storage. A large portion of the back yard is fenced for your two or four legged family members.

Outside the carriage house there is a small fish pond along with a large patio & pergola. The pergola has lighting amongst its rafters and a beautiful wisteria that blankets the area with blooms in May. The carriage house that remains much like it was when first constructed. While many of the elements of the horse & carriage days are gone, it retains the original beadboard walls, horse stall windows, tack room & even the remnants (non-functioning) of a bathroom. The carriage bay on the left side can accommodate two vehicles. The remaining space is a blank canvas that someone needs to envision as an amazing arts studio, home gym, mancave or sheshed. There is full electricity to the carriage house, and new plumbing lines (water only, not sewer) that are ready to be connected to the main house by the next owners.
