Property Description

Move-in ready! Tucked away on a lush, private cul-de-sac just south of Swarthmore is this grand, 6 bedroom, 4.5 bath, 1930 Georgian stone colonial in the highly-acclaimed Wallingford-Swarthmore school district. Sophisticated and elegant in design from a bygone era, this is a wonderful family home in an idyllic woodsy setting.   -----FEATURES-----   Detailed moldings, ornate woodwork, deep window sills, 2 functioning fireplaces, and hardwood floors throughout lend warmth and old-world charm. At 5,000+ square-feet it has three floors of living space, a huge gourmet kitchen, circular driveway, spacious back yard, attached garage, and plenty of storage all situated on just under an acre of land surrounded by mature trees, heirloom roses and stone walls. Swarthmore (SRS) Elementary, Strath Haven Middle/High Schools.   -----1st FLOOR-----  Enter from the front or side door to the grand L-shaped center hall, currently used as a music room and guest seating area. The formal living room with ornate fireplace is soaked in beautiful natural light all day. Across the hall, the den/family room with fireplace and built-ins provides an intimate family space or quiet retreat. Just off the den is a year-round sun room now used as a brightly lit in-home office. A covered outside porch, accessible from the living room, overlooks the large, fenced-in backyard with plenty of space for a swing set, a trampoline, and room for a dog to run freely and safely. -----KITCHEN & DINING ROOM-----   On the North wing is a gorgeous, 33' x 16' eat-in kitchen, complete with high-end stainless steel appliances such as a Miele oven, a Sub-Zero refrigerator, a Jenn-Aire cooktop, and a modern wine chiller. Enjoy effortless domesticity with its refurbished original, glass-front cabinets, solid brass hardware, traditional oak counters, copper vegetable sink, and terra cotta floors. Memorable dinners with family and friends await you in the large and inviting dining room with a bay window and a bar/serving nook. A hidden back staircase leads from the kitchen to the second floor.   ***2nd/3rd FLOORS***   A grand walnut staircase off the entry hall brings you past a stunning palladium window on the way up to 5 bedrooms on the second floor (4 of which were recently outfitted with new carpeting), three with walk-in closets. The 3 second-floor bathrooms capture the bold colors and aesthetics of 1930s art-deco design, each with marble window sills and classic porcelain fixtures of the era. A studio-style guest suite on the third floor enjoys a full stylish bathroom of its own, a cedar walk-in closet, and close proximity to an unfinished storage room that can be easily converted into an additional bedroom.   ***BASEMENT/STORAGE***   The huge, unfinished basement, with the potential for even more living space, provides loads of storage and direct access to the garage as well as to an elevator(!) that extends to the second floor.   ***IDEAL LOCATION***   This home is mere steps from Houston Park’s creek and hiking trails that lead to open athletic fields at the Field of Dreams. For social recreation, it's right down the street from the Spring Haven Country/Golf Club and the Wallingford Swim Club. Quick access to Rte 95, Philadelphia International Airport, and downtown Philly; and a short drive to Wallingford and Swarthmore train stations. Convenient access to the quaint restaurant scenes of downtown Media and Swarthmore, as well as an assortment of grocery stores and retail shopping in the immediate surrounding areas.
