If you could pick the perfect location for your new home, you'd put it right here, set back on this pretty tree-lined street in Merion Station. Not only is it a short walk to the Merion train station, but it's just a couple of blocks away from a peaceful botanical park and the award-winning Merion Elementary School, and walkable to both Bala Cynwyd and Narberth's popular downtown of shops and restaurants. Want walkability and an easy commute? This home delivers! This gracious three-story home has the old world character and craftsmanship of a 1925 Main Line Colonial, blended with the modern amenities and style sought by the most discriminating contemporary homeowner. Outside, you'll love the mature landscaping and enjoy the private driveway with an oversized detached two-car garage. Once inside you'll be drawn to the charm of the wide entry hall and formal dining room with custom board and batten paneling. Features like large pocket doors, fireplace in the spacious living room, and hardwood floors with decorative inlay, all add to the character of this impeccably-maintained home. The circular flow of the first floor is great for entertaining and everyday living, with vaulted ceilings in the light-filled family room, a convenient first-floor powder room, and an enclosed heated sun porch with gorgeous decorative floor tile. The chef in the family will appreciate the brand new kitchen, with crisp white cabinetry, center island, sleek stainless steel backsplash, butcher block counters, and new stainless steel appliances. Stairs in the center hall lead upstairs to a master bedroom on the second floor with an en suite bath and a new closet. This floor has two additional bedrooms and a hall bath. New carpet carries upstairs to the third floor with two more bedrooms and a hall bath with a clawfoot tub. In addition to the 2019 kitchen, the extensive renovations in the home also include a new roof (2018), new gutters, new windows installed throughout the house (2018), all new wood blinds throughout house, completely rewired electrical system and new electric service panel, new light fixtures throughout the entire home, and a freshly-painted interior with modern color palette. Homes that are completely "done", like this one, are the Holy Grail everyone is searching for. This one definitely fits the bill, so it won't be available for long. Don't wait to see it!
