101 E. Sylvan Avenue

Lease accepted!

1 Front exterior

On a tree-lined street in historic Rutledge Borough your picture perfect Tudor twin awaits. This home was lovingly rehabbed from top to bottom in 2012 with easy green living in mind.  Flagstone steps lead the way to an open front porch overlooking the neighborhood. Inside, the living room features a wood burning fireplace and a taste of the oak floors with decorative inlay and beautiful new windows found throughout the first and second floors. An immense span of creamy granite island runs nearly the width of the house and is the only barrier between the kitchen and dining room. The dining room offers ample space for a large table. The gorgeously renovated kitchen boasts a ceramic tile floor, cherry cabinets in a rich finish, granite counter tops, super depth double under-mount sink, and stainless steel appliances including a Jenn-Air range with down-draft vent. A brand new powder room with ceramic tile floor, and a door to the deck overlooking the large level backyard complete the first floor. Upstairs are three generous bedrooms with oak floors.  The master has a wall-length closet with organization system. The elegantly renovated hall bath offers a ceramic tile floor, subway tile surround to the ceiling with decorative glass tile detail, and a huge linen storage cupboard. Adding to the luxury is a second floor laundry closet. The third floor is a large open sitting room or bedroom with a cedar closet and a storage closet.  An unfinished storage room keeps the whole house organized. Rutledge Borough is known as the “best kept secret in Delaware county” with the some of the lowest tax assessments in the Wallingford-Swarthmore School District.  Beautiful historic homes, level streets with sidewalks, a picturesque stone borough hall and public park can all be found this 4 block square town.  Just 5 blocks from the front door of 101 E. Sylvan are the Morton regional rail express train station as well as a coffee shop and small downtown area. Swarthmore Borough downtown and shops are a quick bike ride in the other direction.  Being green is easy with a new gas heater, insulated vinyl windows, and blown in insulation on the first and second floors.  Live in complete comfort guilt-free – and spend those saved utility dollars on books and travel instead!
