    Presenting 437 W Chestnut Hill Avenue, an exceptional oasis surrounded by the lush greenery of Fairmount Park, just blocks from the vibrant shopping and dining along The Avenue. Designed by Arthur Brockie in 1903, this significant and unique property exemplifies a fine Chestnut Hill estate, while attentively updated and upgraded for modern living. Upon walking through the stately front doors to the entrance hall with fireplace, you'll notice the gorgeous hardwood floors, crown molding, Mercer tiles, leaded glass windows and other original architectural details.
