Welcome to Hollywood. This neighborhood has been one of the coolest and most unique neighborhoods in all of Montgomery County, dating back to 1928 when it was first created by Gustav Weber. Weber had the vision to create Spanish/Pueblo Revival as well as Mission Bungalow homes on the east coast. Each home in this neighborhood is modeled after California-style dwellings of the early 20th century. There are less than 200 homes in this much sought-after pocket, where each street is named after a town in Southern California. The Airplane or Gingerbread Home as it is referred to, is the epitome of fun, fine Hollywood living. Such great architectural vibes, wonderful lines and a warm, cozy, and welcoming feel all around. This unique home was just recently featured in Hidden City's Architectural piece back in December of 2021. As you enter the home, you know right away, that this is the one. It's easy to fall in love with the beauty and splendor of bungalow-style living, apparent at every sight line you see. The fireplace room has a wonderful artistic piece of history built right in with Mercer Tile surround. This home has off-street parking, an updated kitchen, a bathroom, and plenty of basement area to finish to add additional square footage. The basement is even plummed for another bathroom. Lots of warmth and good energy in this magnificent Bungalow. Great outdoor space for comfort and relaxation. Owner pride is at every turn in this well-cared-for slice of history. Short distances to shopping, restaurants, and public transportation, the location can not be beaten. See why Abington is ranked in the top places to live by Money Magazine.
