1 Drexel Road


Full size Drexel

Fall in love with the picture perfect location and quintessential Swarthmore charm – impress your friends with millennial efficiency and elegant finishes! This 1920s colonial has been meticulously restored to make it easy to live in and easy to love. A beautiful garden with low maintenance perennials gives the exterior a fairytale look. Enter the generous living room to enjoy the warm heart of pine floors and luxurious woodwork found throughout the home. A stone fireplace with mantel and adjoining built-in bookshelves add character and function to the light-filled space. The formal dining room is large enough for entertaining and offers a view of the rear garden as well as a door to the covered porch – the dining room of choice during the warmer months!  The updated kitchen features glossy granite countertops and an intricate stone and glass backsplash. Off the kitchen are the brand new powder room and a door to a deck overlooking the backyard.  Upstairs the largest bedroom makes a sumptuous master with plenty of space for an office or sitting area. Two additional bedrooms offer pretty views of the gardens. The fully renovated hall bath is sizable with creamy ceramic tile and a granite topped vanity. A fully floored storage attic can be accessed from the main bedroom. Efficiency upgrades include newer windows, heater and hot water heater. The whole house has been rewired, ceiling lighting has been added and the floors have been refinished. Best of all is the location – just three blocks from Swarthmore College campus, the village shops, library and Media-Elwyn line train station!
