Property Description

A captivating property. This enchanting 5 bedroom/3.5 bath home was built in 1920 with unique architectural details that add character and charm to the house. It sits on a gorgeous 1.42-acre level lot surrounded by mature landscaping, a very significant asset, situated on one of the most sought-after and bucolic locations in Radnor Township. The opportunity of endless expansion and the potential of building a new dream home on its grounds opens up exciting possibilities for buyers who want to customize the space to their preferences. The first floor of the house includes a large and elegant fireside Living Room, a formal Dining Room with custom built-ins and a bank of windows to enjoy the surrounding mature landscaping, a Kitchen open to a Breakfast Room with a sitting area (both w/radiant heat), an inviting/Sun Room/Family Room with brick floor, three walls of windows for fabulous scenic views and an exit to an exquisite stone patio, and a pretty Powder Room. The second floor offers a spacious Primary Bedroom with large windows overlooking the picturesque backyard and en-suite Bath; a cozy Library/ Office with floor-to-ceiling bookshelves that could also serve as 5th bedroom, 2 other Bedrooms (one connected to a wonderful bonus room that adds versatility to the space and has been used as a sitting room/playroom, and a great hall Bath w/radiant heat. The laundry is on this floor, adjoined to the primary bedroom. The third floor presents a cozy 4th Bedroom, a full Bath, ample Attic storage, and a substantial walk-in cedar closet. The Basement is full and unfinished. The aesthetically pleasing circular driveway allows for easy access and egress from the property and the two-car garage. A home like this one in such a superb setting and location is a rare find. It is not only close to parks and trails but schools, and shopping, and offers an easy commute to Center City, the airport, and major highways. This elegant five-bedroom house may need some cosmetic touches inside (paint, carpeting...) and some exterior work but it is a precious very livable home located in an oasis of beauty and tranquility. All second-floor windows, the third-floor double-hung windows in the finished space, and the outside kitchen door were replaced in 2008; the kitchen and all baths were redone between 2002 and 2009). In summary, this property is a rare versatile find, combining a unique home with a fabulous lot in an attractive location with the potential for customization and expansion.
