Property Description

Make the perfect move to this distinctive French Colonial home with artistic appeal and family functionality, finely renovated and situated in a secluded, picturesque setting. Nestled on a lush 1.46-acre lot, this 5 bedroom 3.5 bath beauty is located on a lovely private lane with plenty of room separating you from your neighbors. The property offers a great blend of group entertaining mixed with the ability to escape for private serenity, inside and out. Year-round family living is effortlessly afforded with a tropical paradise backyard brimming with luscious trees and foliage, along with elegant, inviting interiors that offer something for everyone. Nothing about this unique gem is cookie-cutter. The love affair begins outdoors. The tranquil front courtyard overlooks non-profit Garrett Williamson farm offering protected views, with no risk of building new homes. The rear oasis gazes over thick foliage, featuring a private patio, restored heated saltwater pool with flagstone surround for cooling off in warm weather, stone fire pit and bench, and peaceful Ipe wooden deck area for relaxing with loved ones and hosting guests. Character abounds throughout the entire grounds with stunning landscaping and hardscaping enhancing curb appeal. Extensive renovations undertaking by the thoughtful owners over the years further set this special house apart. These include a roof with warranty; gutters; windows & doors; heating & AC units; French drains & sump pump; skylights in the kitchen, office & primary bath; heated floors in the 3 updated full bathrooms & laundry room; a whole-house water softening system with reverse osmosis drinking water dispensed from the refrigerator and an automatic propane-operated generator. Comfortable living is yours with a gracious foyer; warm living room with a custom wood-burning fireplace; sky-lit Kountry Kraft kitchen with stainless steel appliances and an island-breakfast bar to gather around; family room for lounging with relatives, kids classmates, etc.; handsome library (converted from dining room) for reading or working; a secluded first floor office with views of the backyard; larger than typical bedrooms for unwinding at the end of the day, and a finished basement escape for enjoying sports and movies on the widescreen TV with stereo sound. If that was not enough, the excellent location tops the cake, conveniently located near shopping, dining, schools, Center City, the airport, major routes and more!
