    Description

    Welcome to one of Merchantvilles most impressive historic residences - 5 E Chestnut Ave in the Cattell Tract Historic District. The home was constructed in the late 1800s, and was Merchantvilles Wesleyan Church from 1910 to the mid '90s. Its current owners bought home in 2002, and have lovingly and meticulously restored many of the period features; creating a stunning masterpiece of a home. The gorgeous front landscaping adorned with pretty pink roses that bloom in the spring and summer, beckon you to enter this beautiful home. You will see the exquisite craftsmanship of the Amish-made double mahogany doors, flanked by the original diamond lights from the 1800s, and beautifully restored double French doors. Once inside, gorgeous oak hardwood floors span the open hallway. To the left- a spacious home office, with original heart pine flooring. To the right- the drawing room, with the original fireplace now converted to gas for your convenience, original ceiling medallion, and bay window alcove. Through the back lies the heart of the home, where the congregation used to meet, which has now been converted into a stunning kitchen, dining room, living room and family room with 11ft ceilings. To the left there is generous dining room and living room featuring a double-sided gas fireplace. To the right you will be greeted by a chefs dream; an incomparable gourmet kitchen. All the cabinetry has been crafted by the Amish, and the kitchen features many expensive upgrades including a Five Star commercial range - with both gas and electric ovens, 6 burner range with grill and griddle and a grotto-style hood. Granite worktops, a 7ft island, a huge kitchen pantry, two refrigerators, a butlers nook with sink - perfect for a coffee bar, large 42-48 inch upper cabinets and a giant kitchen hutch for your many, many cookbooks. Through the kitchen you will find an eat-in area, and a cosy family den with a gas fireplace- framed by custom built-in shelving. At the rear of the property is a generous mudroom/rear porch with access to the deck with pergola and backyard. Heading back to the hallway, passing a convenient powder room with Bombay vanity and bronze sink, you will be drawn up the oak staircase to marvel at the gorgeous piece of stained-glass. Commissioned and designed by local stained-glass artist Paul Friend of Haddonfield who has worked on many residences and churches throughout the United States and Europe. Up onto the second floor you+GGll find three generous sized bedrooms, a laundry area and family bathroom, including the primary suite with large walk-in closet, and ensuite bathroom with travertine tile and huge soaking jet tub. The third floor has just recently been remodeled to create a fourth bedroom and has ample storage. Poke your head into the storage area and you will find the old cistern- who wants to get creative and use this for a bathtub or outdoor hot tub? Some other notable features to this home: all the windows have been replaced over the last 15 years with Thermapane replica windows; the electrics and wiring have all been upgraded to a 200A service; the home has dual zone high velocity heating and air-conditioning systems. Overall this home is close to 3900 sqft of living space, plus a walk down basement with 8ft ceilings- a space you could easily finish if you wanted additional living. And let us not forget if you want, you can just pop across the street to The Station cafe to grab your morning coffee and gelato, or stroll up to Eclipse brewing for a pint on a summers eve. If you are looking to fulfill your period home fantasy, then look no further than 5 E Chestnut Ave in Merchantville. Book your appointment today!
