Property Description

Welcome to this special Narberth home on one of the best blocks in the Borough, which combines fine craftsmanship with sought-after modern conveniences. The warm, traditional street presence belies the great amount of space inside. The covered porch opens into a large interior, and the expansive great room addition is secluded from the street. The combination living/dining room is spacious and sunny, with well-placed windows and gleaming wood floors with inlaid accents. The cheerful kitchen has white wood cabinets, stainless steel appliances, and custom tiled floor. There is an open half-wall to a true gem of this home: its open, step-down great room. The grand great room, added in 2006, has a soaring cathedral ceiling, ceiling fan, recessed lighting, beautiful fireplace, and dining area. There are ten oversized Andersen windows that truly let the sunshine stream in, enhancing the comfort and beauty of the room. Walk out through Andersen French doors to the gorgeous rear deck (with new polywood boards) overlooking the bucolic yard. There is also a full bathroom with tub/shower combination and black-and-white tile flooring, plus two pantry cabinets and an oversized nook perfect for a homework zone on this level. The charming feel of the home extends upstairs. On the second floor, the main bedrooms hardwood floors gleam, and the sunny windows with built-ins and a window seat make this an enticing space with plentiful closet space. Two additional bedrooms have charm to spare, with lovely hardwood flooring and windows. The recently renovated hall bathroom features an oversized stall shower with a corner seat. The third floor holds an eaved room that currently is used as a playroom and could serve as a fourth bedroom, sunny home office, exercise area, or den. The homes lower level has a 23x23 column-free room with five oversized Andersen windows and walks out to the back yard. It is currently used as an additional recreation space, a work-out area, and home office. The lower level also has a half bath. The beauty of the outdoors abounds here, with mature shrubbery and pretty plants in the front yard, coupled with a generous deck and attractive rear yard. Narberths appeal is hard to overstate, with its walkability and movie theater, library, and public park, as well as train station, shops, restaurants, and easy access to Center City, I-476 and I-95, and all Main Line towns and shopping. Please confirm with District, but this street may be in the choice zone for High School. Interior square footage is approximate.
