The classic main line center hall colonial sits on a third of an acre on a quiet, tree-lined street. Inside, the home has touches of character everywhere, with arched doorways, hardwood floors, wainscoting, and crown molding, but also boasts modern amenities like recessed lighting, central air, a convenient and open first floor flow, and updated kitchen and baths. To the right of the front door is a living room with a wood fireplace, oversized front window, built-in bookcases and glass doors to the back deck. On the left of the entry hall, a spacious dining room with bay windows opens to a modern eat-in kitchen. The chef in the family will love the generous cabinet storage, built-in stainless appliances, and large center island with granite that matches the ample countertops. At the rear of the house is a light-filled modern family room, brightened by windows on three sides and skylights, and a convenient half bath. Another exterior door leads out to the back deck, offering room for a grill and outdoor dining table, as well as steps down to the backyard, pool, and patio.

The second floor has a large primary bedroom with ensuite bath, two additional bedrooms and a full hall bath, plus the first of two laundry areas, a convenient stackable w/d off the hall. There's another bedroom on the third floor, with a separate sitting room/office area, cedar closets, and a renovated full bath. The walkout lower level is partially finished, with a carpeted rec room and half bathroom, in addition to plenty of storage space and a second laundry area in the unfinished area. An exterior door exits to the back of the driveway, with easy access to the backyard, pool, and the attached garage. Last, but certainly not least, is the amazing backyard you need to see to believe. There’s an elevated deck that overlooks a lower, brick patio and an amazing in-ground, saltwater pool. The backyard fencing and landscaping add privacy to this “staycation” piece of paradise.

With a quick and easy commute to Philadelphia, and award winning Lower Merion schools around the corner, it's obvious why this is such a popular neighborhood. Close to the popular Cynwyd Heritage Trail, and walkable to schools, restaurants, and shopping in Bala and Merion, this home is also just a few minutes drive to downtown Narberth, Ardmore’s Suburban Square and Manayunk.
