This apartment is a beautiful two-floor apartment which is the two upper levels of a three story Elkins Park Victorian. It can be used for as much as a four bedroom apartment if needed! The first floor of the apartment consists of a huge walk-in closet with plenty of storage, a good-sized family room with what can be used as a bar, or computer room, and two additional rooms which can be used as bedrooms, a dining room, an office, a playroom, anything you'd like! The living room, like the rest of the first floor, boasts 9+ foot ceilings and wall-to-wall berber carpeting. It has a ceiling fan and two oversized windows. There is a window A/C unit included (three total in the apartment), which is powerful enough to do most of the first floor on its own. There is also a radiator which runs the length of this room, and a built-in audio-visual cabinet. The apartment is cable-ready, just call Comcast!

One of the additional rooms on the first floor can also be accessed directly from the common foyer area through a private entrance. This room has a round turret with three windows, and is a beautiful reading area. This room also has a built-in custom-made tv cabinet for up to a 27" TV. A second window A/C unit is included in this room, as well as a large radiator and ceiling fan. Between this room and the other additional room is a set of floor-to-ceiling pocket doors which can be left closed to make two rooms, or opened for one large room. Your choice. The other additional room on the floor also has a ceiling fan, a radiator, and a small corner closet. Since the current configuration is to maintain each room separately, there is also a huge storage cabinet in this room, which sits perfectly in front of the pocket doors, providing privacy as well as functional storage space.

There is a hallway which takes you to the full bathroom with bathtub and shower. Newer linoleum and a radiator make this bathroom charming as well as functional. Further down the hallway is the eat-in kitchen, with refridgerator, disposal, and plenty of storage space. The kitchen also boasts a ceiling fan and high ceilings. There is plenty of storage space available, and there is newer linoleum. There's also a radiator in the kitchen.

Finally there is a stairway which takes you upstairs for the additional two rooms. These are commonly used as bedrooms, but can be additional storage space as well. The larger of the two rooms includes a window A/C unit and a small but walk-in closet. Beautiful slanted ceilings provide plenty of charm. The smaller of the two rooms has a small closet and a radiator also. Both rooms are fully carpeted. There are laundry machines available for use in the basement of the building. Laundry is included in the rent. All utilities are paid for by the tenant. The apartment includes 1 off-street parking space in the driveway, and there is plenty of street parking available, no permit required. The apartment is very close to the center of Elkins Park, with shopping and the train station within a few blocks.

The living room as seen from the entrance.  Note the 9 1/2' ceilings, the bright and airy view, and the clean look of the room.

A closeup of the turret room.  While only about 5' in diameter, as shown it's big enough for a chair, some plants, and an ottoman.  It's a great reading room, and has windows on three sides
