    Introducing one of Chestnut Hill's finest residences! On one of the most coveted streets in Chestnut Hill sits 8204 Seminole, an architectural gem, designed by the prestigious architecture firm of Hazzlehurst & Huckle at the turn of the century. Sweeping lawns, beautiful mature trees, a separate carriage house and a three car garage make this an exceptional property. Over the past ten years, this prominent residence has experienced renovations and meticulous restorations to amplify its original character and beauty. Old world elegance and craftsmanship include 10 foot plus ceilings on the first and second floors, elaborate millwork, beautiful original doors and windows with energy efficiency updates, wood burning and gas fireplaces and timeless fixtures throughout. This home seamlessly blends a grand entrance hall and formal dining and living rooms with a more casual kitchen and family room space designed for modern living. The adjoining living rooms have French doors that access a covered porch and steps to a bluestone patio, perfect for enjoying a summer evening. The new kitchen features coffered ceilings, custom cabinetry and quartzite countertops highlighting a Lacanche Sully 1800 range which is a combination of gas, French cooktop and induction as well as gas and electric ovens. It truly is a chef's dream! The new 1,000 square foot master suite includes a master bedroom, dressing room, luxurious bath and wet bar. The master bedroom has a corner gas fireplace and access to both the bathroom and dressing room. The dressing room features ample custom cabinetry for his and her closets as well as a cozy sitting area. The master bath has a large soaking tub and his and her vanities. Three of the remaining six bedrooms are en suite. All bathrooms and powder rooms have been renovated. The house has central air, a new smart home security system and updated electrical wiring throughout. The brand new Vermont slate roofs on both the main house and the carriage house are of upgraded thickness to one half of an inch and includes new copper chimney caps, copper flashings, pure bronze snow guards, heavy duty copper half rounds and copper gutter guards. The decorative collection boxes on the top two corners of the front of the house have been restored and attached to the new copper downspouts. The front portico deck and railing were restored to their original 1892 design using historical archives obtained from the Chestnut Hill Conservancy. Adjacent to the working garden is an impeccably maintained two story carriage house that boasts two bedrooms, one and a half baths, full kitchen, family room and private yard. Enjoy all that Chestnut Hill has to offer in this centrally located home. Walk to all the highlights and conveniences of the neighborhood including shops and restaurants, schools, local train lines to Center City and the many trails of Fairmount Park.
