This picturesque cape cod is set on a generous lot on one of Swarthmore Borough’s rare cul-de-sacs. Each room offers peaceful views of the park-like property through efficient replacement windows. The spacious living room has a wood burning fireplace and a large picture window overlooking the beautiful dogwood trees. The formal dining room offers plenty of room for entertaining and is open to the recently renovated kitchen. Kraftmaid wood cabinets, recessed lighting, two pantries, and newer appliances including a GE gas range, and GE side-by-side fridge make the space as functional as it is attractive. Just off the kitchen is the family room addition. The gas fireplace is cozy and efficient, and the flooring is new, but the view of the rear property through an immense picture window will draw your eye away from everything else. Sip your tea and watch the seasons change in this peaceful, light-filled space. The bedroom hall begins with a renovated full bath with glass door shower stall and Corian topped storage vanity with a mirrored storage medicine cabinet. In the master bedroom, double closets flank a window seat with pretty views of the garden through Anderson wood windows. The original master bedroom, also on the first floor, can be used as an in-home office or fourth bedroom. Upstairs two large dormered bedrooms each have ample closet space and access to the floored, insulated storage eaves. Another full bath completes the second floor. The basement has a semi-finished office area as well as a laundry room, storage area, and workshop. Sensible updates include a newer gas heater and Central Air. Everyday luxuries include the sheltered patio and beautiful meadow-like backyard. The adjacent footpath leads a few blocks into the heart of downtown Swarthmore and its shops, library and train to Center City! 112 Yale Square is served by the esteemed Wallingford-Swarthmore School District. Just one visit to this serene cape cod and you’ll never want to say good-bye!
