1 Village Greens Lane, Swarthmore, PA 19081
Welcome to 1 Village Greens Lane, offering three floors of light-filled modern living in the heart of Swarthmore Village.
Step into the vaulted entry for a taste of the light neutral colors and finished oak floors found throughout the first floor. The office could also function as a fifth bedroom. It offers a traditional closet, mudroom shelves, and a large window overlooking the cherry tree in the front yard. The former garage is now a spacious first-floor family room. Step through the custom glass double doors from the foyer to reach the open great room. The kitchen boasts wood cabinets and Corian counter tops with newer stainless-steel appliances and a seating peninsula opening into the dining area. The living room has a lovely fireplace and glass doors out to the deck, which overlooks the beautifully landscaped community grounds. An updated full hall bath with black and white basketweave tile floor and vinyl shower stall completes the first floor. The second floor opens to a large landing with double doors to the primary bedroom suite. The suite includes a spacious bedroom with a walk-in closet and a luxurious full bath with double vanity, stall shower, and soaking tub with large picture window overlooking the treetops. Two additional bedrooms, each with a double corner closet and double window overlooking the trees and nearby Swarthmore-Rutledge School playground can also be found on the second floor, as well as the laundry room with linen closet and an updated full hall bath with black and white basketweave tile floor and vinyl tub surround. The third floor, formerly a simple loft, was transformed in 2019 with a thoughtful design by local architect Gardner Fox, creating a second family room complete with a reading nook and mini-split for optimum temperature control, a large bedroom with a view over the cherry tree and large closet with a second mini-split duct, and a brand new full bath with black and white basketweave tile floor, glass door stall shower and a large skylight. This wonderful space could be perfect for guests, a teen suite, or even a peaceful place to spread out and work from home. Newer HVAC (2018) and mini-splits (2019), many newer windows (2018 & 2019) as well as a new roof (2020) all allow peace of mind. Best of all is the location – just a block or two from the village shops, library, Media-Elwyn line train station and Swarthmore College’s beautiful campus. Village Greens is a welcoming and cooperative association with an open invitation to all residents for community events. Just one visit to this 4/5 bedroom, 4 full bath expanded corner townhome and you won’t want to say good-bye!
