About

A gracious 4-bedroom, 4.5 bathroom stone and brick Tudor home located on one of Swarthmore’s most coveted streets. This iconic home is brimming with beautiful architectural and ornamental elements typical of the Tudor style, including an oversized arched entrance, steep pitched gable roof, and high-quality materials throughout. Upon entering, you’ll be greeted by a charming vestibule featuring one remaining original classic leaded window – all of the others in the home have been replaced – and natural wood doors. The stunning renovated kitchen boasts beautiful soapstone counters, custom painted cabinetry, stainless steel appliances including a Wolf range, a large center island, classic subway tile, and a large picture window overlooking the lovely grounds.

There is also a gorgeous custom crafted built-in hutch with glass cabinets and tremendous storage! Adjacent to the kitchen is a fabulous family room addition with gorgeous hardwood floors, a dining area, double access to the amazing screen porch with a vaulted wood ceiling, a side door entrance with mudroom, and a lovely stairwell to the basement. The ceramic tiled basement features a large laundry room with sink and ample storage. In a separate room is a finished area – perfect as a playroom or gaming room – and there is still plenty of unfinished space for storage! On the other side of the family room is the favorite room – an intimate den with custom built-in bookshelves, perfect for a home office or quiet sitting room. A charming powder room is conveniently located right outside of this den. The opposite side of the kitchen leads to a gorgeous living room/dining area featuring a beautiful fireplace with a natural wood mantel, classic tile surround, and matching tile hearth. French doors lead from this room to the outdoors, onto one of the two stone patios, creating a fabulous indoor-outdoor flow for entertaining and everyday living. Just beyond the living room, you’ll find French doors leading to a beautiful sunroom with an exposed stone wall, bead-board ceiling, and fabulous wallpaper. Currently used as an office and exercise room, this room also has a door leading outside. The stunning staircase with rod iron railing and large picture window leads you from the kitchen to the equally wonderful second floor. At the top of the landing is a bedroom with a large walk-in closet and en suite bathroom. Just down the hall is a second bedroom with an en suite bathroom that also has a door to the hall.

In its own separate area is a hallway leading to the renovated primary bedroom with a wall of custom built-in closets, an additional closet, and a beautiful large en suite bathroom with two vanities with granite, a glass stall shower, and a clawfoot soaking tub. An additional staircase was added leading to the wonderful third-floor fourth bedroom with a separate full bath. It is so unique and luxurious to have a dedicated bathroom for each bedroom! In addition to the wonderful layout and functionality of this home, the renovations have included high quality materials which are evident throughout including the hardwood floors, replacement windows, a new roof and the materials used in the stunning kitchen and lovely bathrooms renovations. The outdoor space of this home is equally impressive and includes two fabulous stone patios in addition to the screen porch and lovely hardscaping in the front as well. There is also beautiful landscaping throughout the property and a completely charming shed (being sold as is) adding to the overall delightful aesthetic. This house’s location is unparalleled – close to everything Swarthmore has to offer, including the SEPTA station, Swarthmore’s restaurants and coffee shops plus easy access to other favorite retail nearby like Starbucks, Martindale’s Natural Food store, and more. The convenience of access to major roads into Philadelphia and Wilmington could not be easier! This home is truly an exceptional one in every way!
