Property Description

With an almost unheard of 24-foot-wide footprint, amazing natural light, a great layout, an enormous backyard and a finished basement with powder room, this home has all the rarely found makings of an incredible forever home where you can slowly make upgrades over the years. There’s a huge front porch overlooking the yard, where the sellers have cultivated a lush garden including apricot and pear trees, complete with a rain barrel tucked off to the side. Rather than the traditional straight-through layout, the main floor features large and airy interconnected rooms. The spacious entry hallway with an uber-charming turned staircase leads straight back to the kitchen and also connects through an oversize archway to the large living room with decorative fireplace. A unique key-shaped archway leads to the dining room with a rear bay window and passthrough to the kitchen, which features solid wood cabinets, granite countertops, tumbled stone backsplash, stainless steel appliances including French door Samsung fridge and ceramic tile floors. Head out back to the massive rear yard with a large shade tree, raised planting beds and tons of room left over for a furniture set, play equipment or whatever else defines your dream outdoor space. Four sunny bedrooms occupy the second level, two at the front with a square bay and two at the rear; one features a classic bay window. They share a large hall bath with dual vanity, linen closet and ceramic tile floors. The finished basement offers additional hangout space complete with powder room, separate laundry area and plenty of room for bulky storage items. In a convenient location near schools, SEPTA, Morris Rec Center, the Free Library and shopping centers, and less than two blocks from Cobbs Creek Park, this charming home full of potential should not be missed.
