Welcome home to this grand masonry and stone home with over 4,000 square-feet of living space and an abundance of character and history. This 6 bedroom, 3 full, 2 half bath home proudly sits on a corner lot in the heart of Swarthmore located only one block away from the highly desirable Swarthmore-Rutledge Elementary school and a few blocks to downtown Swarthmore, Swarthmore Swim Club and Swarthmore College. The exterior details of the home are rarely found in homes today and have been preserved for your enjoyment. As you enter the home from the front porch through the charming vestibule and step up to the foyer, you are greeted by the grandness of the home that unfolds in both directions. The center room of the main level is the dining room that appears straight out of the pages of a magazine with French doors into the kitchen. The kitchen boasts a large and sun-drenched breakfast area with French doors to the multi-level composite deck that overlooks the ample, flat backyard featuring arborist marked trees. The expansive living room features a charming wood fireplace (non-functioning) and gorgeous detailed moldings. The main level is completed by a quaint and convenient powder room. Upstairs you will find the primary bedroom with built-in shelving and primary bathroom. A neighboring bedroom could be easily used to expand the primary bathroom and add in a walk-in closet. A nearby sleeping porch provides great flex space for an in-home office, yoga studio or whatever fits your needs. This level includes two more bedrooms and a huge hall bathroom. All the bedrooms include ceiling fans. The third level features two more bedrooms, two walk-in closets, a full bathroom, and a bonus room -- all with loads of opportunity for creating the perfect space to fit your needs. The above ground basement with separate entrance and half bathroom has untapped potential for an in-law suite, au pair quarters, extensive workshop, etc. One section of the basement housed the original Swarthmore Coop - you could continue the tradition with your own in-home business! Outside you will find the original stone archway, freshly re-pointed, leading from the driveway and one car garage to the backyard, and a lovely side patio for al fresco dining and relaxing. Other updates include Cat 5 cable to every room, most windows replaced and knob & tube removed, windows on the south, east, and west sides of the home are tinted to reduce UV, 4" flush LED lights installed on the 1st and 2nd floors, all light switches and plugs replaced throughout, new decora toggle switches and plugs throughout. All this was included in the $30k rewire of the home to replace the entire system and add another 100 amp service to carry the home plus allow for a fully finished basement. A true gem of a home located in the quaint town of Swarthmore that provides all your day to day needs with a Coop market, bank, dry cleaner, coffee shops, post office, restaurants and brewery only blocks away from the home and within the award winning Wallingford-Swarthmore school district and with quick access to the Blue Route, I-95, Philadelphia airport and the train to downtown Philadelphia or Wilmington DE.
