New Price! Midcentury aesthetic lovers take notice! This rare gem, dubbed “the butterfly house” due to the distinctive roof line, was designed by Czechoslovakian born architect Allan Berkowitz, in 1956. Berkowitz was a disciple of Le Corbusier, the pioneering French modernist, and designed several churches, schools and libraries – yet only 10 homes in the area. Set back from the street, with ample space like a tranquil bird sanctuary, this lovely home offers over 3,000 sq ft of living space over 3 levels, and offers many details of original midcentury design. A long circular dual entry driveway provides a large private lot for several cars. Enough playground space side and back on 0.8 acre lot, surrounded by woods. Entrance foyer with large natural slate tile floor opens into enormous living room with original floor to ceiling windows along one wall. The exterior stone is carried through to the interior to create a feature wall along the foyer, above the stairway, and in the breakfast room. Living room and separate dining room feature original, mint condition wood paneling and floor to ceiling windows. The inviting open floor plan allows flow between living room, formal dining room, kitchen, and breakfast room. Directly adjacent to kitchen is the laundry room with expansive floor to ceiling wall closet storage, laundry sink, and modern washer and dryer. Kitchen and laundry room both open to the large paved concrete patio, perfect for barbecues and outdoor relaxation. Upstairs find 4 bedrooms – a master suite with two large closets and ensuite bath with shower and double vanity. On the opposite side of the house is another large bedroom, also with two closets and bath with original striking “striped” tile design in soft blues. There are two other nice sized bedrooms, featuring enormous windows overlooking the wooded lot. Hall bath has updated vanity yet still has the original distinctive bronze and tan tiles in excellent condition. The lower level is an enormous space with gas fireplace, large storage closets, and full bath with original vanity and details. Lower level can easily be converted into a fifth bedroom with ensuite by adding a partition wall, and still have ample room for a family or play room. Lower level opens to the expansive, private backyard. Large circular driveway fits plenty of cars. Walking distance to the desirable Wyncote Elementary School, very close to Cheltenham High School, the Jenkintown-Wyncote train station, the Curtis Arboretum, and convenient access to 309 and PA turnpike.
