A stunning home with a deep and rich history with four bedrooms and three and a half bathrooms is available for sale in Glenside, writes Sandy Smith for the Philadelphia Magazine.
The property was originally part of a 250-acre parcel bought in 1681 by Philadelphia’s first mayor, Humphrey Morrey. His son, Richard, married his freed slave Cremona, and the pair lived on the property with their five children.
In 1772, their daughter, Cremona Jr., and her husband built the first portion of the house.
Since then, the house has been expanded and expertly updated to preserve many of its original elements while still offering all the amenities of modern living.
The highlights include a charming kitchen with state-of-the-art appliances and plenty of cabinet and counter space along with the cozy sunroom just off the den. Additionally, all five of the original fireplaces are still functional.
The home also sits on a 0.59-acre lot in a very convenient location near the Fort Washington Expressway, Glenside’s town center, and the Regional Rail station.
