Chestnut Hill, located in the northwestern corner of Philadelphia, is one of the region's most beautiful and architecturally distinguished communities. Flanked by the spectacular Wissahickon Gorge and Cresheim Valley, Chestnut Hill is home to one of the best collections of 19th and early 20th-century residential buildings in the country.

A classic, large brick Georgian in Chestnut Hill, PA, this home has many of the features popular from the Georgian period: dormers, multi-paned windows, and classical details on the soffits and under several brick arch-ways.
Built circa 1920, this mansion also had many layers of old lead based paint.. Old Village did an RRP (Renovation, Repair, Painting) project to safely remove the old lead paint down to the bare wood - while preserving the intricate details on the exterior of this fine home. We are EPA Certified for Lead Paint Removal.
We then gave it a beautiful Old Village exterior paint job in classic white.

Chestnut Hill is full of older homes and many of these are covered in lead paint. We did another RRP (Restoration, Repair, Paint) project on this Federal Style Mansion on St Martin's Lane.
This project included removing the lead paint then restoring the beautiful arched palladian windows and shutters facing the inner courtyard. The 1st floor features casements on either side of the main windows and the 2nd floor louvered shutters, all of which had been painted shut for years. Old Village restored these to like new condition.

This gorgeous Chestnut Hill Victorian was an entire repaint. A color consultation was done with the owners using historic pictures of the home in order to restore the original color scheme.
Old Village restored and preserved the detail of the cedar siding, a hallmark of the Shingle style of architecture popular after the US Centennial.
