ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

Welcome to Tanglewood, an historic Cheyney estate. This Impressive home, situated on 7+ private acres, offers many modern amenities not typically found in a home with this much history and character. The origins of the Tanglewood estate began with the construction of a grand, 3-story stone home built in the early 19th century. Located at the top of a hill, south and east of where Cheyney Road crosses the WC ? Phila railroad. As you approach, the circular drive sets the home back from the driveway. Enter to tall ceilings (10 foot) throughout the 1st floor, continuing to the living room with marble fireplace. Enter the library with stone fireplace and wood stove. Continue through the study, with French doors to outdoor spaces to the front courtyard and back of the home, dining room with fireplace, & the open kitchen space, great for entertaining. This kitchen was professionally designed & is adorned with a double wall oven, Viking gas cook top, Subzero fridge & 2 Miele dishwashers. The solid cherry cabinets provide tons of storage and extensive imported granite counter tops. The kitchen, great for casual entertaining, is located next to the dining room, separated by a swinging butler door, for more formal occasions. Three separate staircases lead to the 2nd floor with its 9-foot ceilings. The 2nd floor contains the master bedroom suite with marble bath, heated floor, shower and tub. The 2nd floor includes play/recreation room and 3 additional bedrooms, 3 more full baths, sitting room, office, and laundry room. The 3rd floor has 4 bedrooms, a full bath & walk-in attic. F. Scott Fitzgerald rented the home in 1923-24 and during the civil rights movement, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. used Tanglewood to meet w/ Bayard Rustin. The property has a carriage house with an in-law suite & one car garage. To create his studio, Ben Kamihira, the famous Philadelphia artist & former owner of the estate, installed a large window in the carriage home's apartment would make great in-law quarters. This home has 3 fireplaces. The grounds feature expansive lawns and landscaped gardens. The balance of the property contains a hardwood forest. Stone walls flank the entrance to the property from Cheyney Rd while the current landscaping preserves the original carriage way up the hill to the 8' wide stone stairs to the original front door on the north side.
