This distinctive home boasts 6 bedrooms, 3 full baths, 2 half baths, 2 car garage, a four-season den/porch, a 3rd floor with 2 large rooms and a full bath that would make a wonderful in-law suite, teen suite or suite of two very large home offices!
Can't wait to see you at our sale. Setup was 390.
The generously sized rooms in this home feature extensive cedar-lined closets making storage and preservation problems a thing of the past. The first floor offers a large center hall and extensive wainscoting. You'll find charming built-ins in the large living and dining rooms and a cozy den just off of the living room perfect for getting away for some relaxing reading or gazing outside through the wall of windows on a cold wintery day while you keep nice and toasty setting the separate thermostat to your own desired temperature.
The first floor is kept cool in the summer with a 2 year old central air unit. The mostly finished and tiled basement offers even more storage with a laundry room and the 2 year old Buderus gas boiler with zoned heating for the first and second floors, basement, first floor den, and third floor.
Exit the basement to the large backyard surrounded by plush trees and shrubbery that lend to a sense of privacy and the ability to enjoy the company of family and friends on the lovely stone terrace perfect for entertaining outdoors anytime of year!
In addition to the beauty and uniqueness of this lovely old home, you will be within walking distance of the train station with direct connections to Penn, Drexel Center City Philadelphia and Temple. Walk to Swarthmore College, Swarthmore Elementary School, Swarthmore Borough Center and Library, AND the Springfield Mall. At Swarthmore Borough Center you'll find a downtown core of unique, independent shops and services, including the well-known Swarthmore Co-Op, for a true small town feel!
If that weren't enough, the Wallingford-Swarthmore School District is one of the BEST in Pennsylvania! (http://wssd.org/domain/657)
