Set behind a stone wall and overlooking world-famous Fairmount Park, Sunfield is a majestic, architecturally unique stone estate. Built in the early 1900s and occupied by the same family for generations, this spectacular property is located in the prestigious Chestnut Hill section of Philadelphia. It is just minutes by train to Center City and with walking distance to distinctive shopping and restaurants that make Chestnut Hill such a charming, small-town place. The property consists of two land parcels totalling 2.76 acres and is home to mature trees, specimen plantings and beautiful gardens only generations could achieve. The land gently slopes to abut the park, giving privacy and unobstructed views of the elegant, expansive fields of green. Atop a two-car garage is a quaint guest apartment with full bath. A second, multi-car garage completes the grounds.
The home reflects a sophisticated lifestyle of comfort and casual elegance suitable for a large family and entertaining on a grand or intimate scale. The interior spaces focus around a grand entrance hall with a cascading stairway to each of the four levels. Ten-foot ceilings, five fireplaces and old-world wood patterned floors add to the graciousness of the public spaces. Quality craftsmanship abounds as one admires the attention to detail, the use of luxurious materials and well thought out floor plan. Among its many square feet of livable space, a wing of the house is ideal for au pair, in-law or staff quarters. Sunfield offers a living environment that few properties old or new can ever achieve.
