Located at 714 East Willow Grove, this Wyndmoor property is balanced between appearing its age and being livable in the modern day, which is a challenge for farmhouses, writes Matthew Sheridan of Philadelphia Magazine.

The four-bedroom, two-bath house of 2,725 square feet was built in 1890, but has been renovated to retain that 19th-century charm while offering modern comforts and features. Nowhere is this more apparent than in the kitchen. There are hardwood floors, doors and ceilings and a vintage gas range, but there are also high-end appliances, chic light fixtures, and a granite island.

The first floor also has a wide sunroom that spans the length of the house.

On the second level, the master bathroom is yet another example of this house’s perfect combination of antique and fresh. There are the same floors and ceilings as throughout the house, and there’s even an antique rug and a huge wooden wardrobe.

However, there is also a glass door and marble-tiled shower and a claw-foot bathtub.

The owner, a landscape architect, has surrounded this home with beauty in the form of formal and informal gardens, terraces and patios, and a carriage house on the property serves as a garage.

The house, listed by BHHS Fox & Roach, is priced at $589,000.
