Whitemarsh House is a beautiful 200 year old, three-story stone residence with many attractive qualities, rarely seen in newer places. Here you will find a striking, oak entryway and lobby with a sweeping wooden staircase to the upper floors. The front parlor is similarly appointed with much wood and an open floor plan overlooking the wraparound porch. The dining room is splashed with afternoon sunlight coming above and through the open wooded park to the west. The resident's rooms come in private and shared combinations. Consistent with the rest of the house, the rooms reflect the flair of a bygone time. The ceilings are high, and the windows are generous. Each room is equipped with its' own private bathroom.
Set in a quiet community just a half hour from center city Philadelphia, Whitemarsh House boasts a feeling of space outside, as in. With an adjacent township park for walks and picnics, and a large backyard bordered by a fishing stream, residents are treated to nature, as rarely occasioned in the suburbs. With a variety of shops and restaurants only a short walk from the front door, residents can enjoy getting coffee or lunch, or the pleasures of buying clothing or a long list of other readily available items. The residents are part of the surrounding community.
