 1 front

Just a few doors down from Rutledge Borough’s beloved Triangle Park, this classic cape cod is being offered to the public for the first time since 1966. Sensible updates include a brand-new gas heater, brand-new C/A unit and newer roof. Your cosmetic touches will make it feel like home! A curving path leads from the deep front lawn to the front door. The cozy fireplace and sunny bay window give the living room a classic feel. A formal dining room opens into the family room addition with its beamed ceiling, exposed brick wall, wood-burning fireplace, cork flooring, and a door to the attached extra-deep two-car garage. The kitchen has a pretty view of the deep backyard and great potential for a lucky buyer to renovate to taste. Also on the first floor are a bedroom, a full bath with shower stall, and a wealth of closets. Upstairs are two more bedrooms with plenty of eaves storage and a full bath with soaking tub. The backyard is deep and level with mature plantings. 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 quaint stone borough hall and public park can all be found this 4 block square town. Just 6 blocks from 110 Swarthmore Avenue are the Morton regional rail express train station and small downtown area. Swarthmore Borough village and shops are just over just a mile from the front door in the other direction! Enjoy the quiet life in a picturesque borough just half an hour from downtown Philadelphia.
