Agent's Summary
MLS# 6027073

Private estate in a premium country setting only twenty minutes from center city Philadelphia! This architecturally significant Anglo/Norman manor house bordering Fairmount Park was designed by the renowned architectural firm of Mellor, Meigs and Howe. The home is nestled within a private stone walled courtyard on West Mt Airy's most desirable street and built for noted Philadelphia industrialist Morris Leeds between 1931-35. Sensitively renovated to the highest standards while retaining the original integrity, the Leeds House features details for which Mellor, Meigs and Howe are celebrated: superb ironwork by Samuel Yellin; beamed and vaulted ceilings; eight distinctive fireplaces of European and Colonial American design; mahogany and pine paneled rooms; hand carved stonework; fine ornamental plasterwork; and generous light filled rooms with unparalleled views of the lush private Wissahickon style garden, terraces and park. Bucolic setting offers panoramic views of the sunset over the Wissahickon Valley.
