2 Chatham Place, Wallingford, PA 19086
This custom-built center hall colonial has been lovingly updated and meticulously maintained. Each detail of the charming exterior speaks of quality – from the brickwork on the chimneys, to the turret style garage roof, to the professionally landscaped lawn. Step inside to admire light-filled rooms and clean, modern finishes. The elegant entry hall offers two closets flanking a large front door with a transom, and introduces the fresh wood plank floors, soft neutral colors, and soaring ceilings that can be found throughout the first floor. On one side of the center hall is the large living room, which overlooks the front yard through large windows with plantation shutters, and boasts a wood-burning fireplace. On the other side of the hall, the formal dining room offers ample space for entertaining and a second wood-burning fireplace. The spacious eat-in kitchen has just been updated with brand new stainless-steel appliances, quartz countertops, and a mini-subway tile backsplash. The oversized pantry closet keeps the rest of the space neat and tidy, and the breakfast area is large enough for a second dining table. The renovated powder room boasts a large storage vanity with a concrete top. The family room ceiling soars and the fireplace is set in a wall of brick, but your eyes will be drawn to the verdant view over the garden through a wall of brand-new floor-to-ceiling glass windows. This airy, elegant space will be the setting for many happy occasions and relaxing evenings looking out at the fireflies. Glass doors from the family room lead onto the rear patio, which overlooks the garden and trees. Upstairs, the gentle slope of the gambrel roofline gives a cozy feel to the great big master bedroom. A true walk-in closet and full en suite bath with separate tub and glass door stall shower can also be found in this generous space. A full hall bath and three additional bedrooms, each with two bright windows and ample closet space can also be found on the second floor. The full basement has high ceilings, a Worthington Waterproofing French drain system with a lifetime warranty, and an egress door to the backyard. Plumbed for bathroom, this enormous space has plenty of potential to be finished into a second family room, bedrooms, or even an in-law suite. Or keep it as it is and utilize it for storage and handy projects. The two-car attached garage has a door to the kitchen, making shopping day a breeze. The deep setback of the house allows a large front yard and an expansive side yard in addition to the backyard, with access to the woods and trails of Rose Valley. This very special home is served by award-winning Wallingford-Swarthmore Schools. Wallingford Elementary School is just across the street from the Chatham Place cul-de-sac and Strath Haven Middle and High Schools, as well as a post office convenience store, library and café are just a few blocks away. Commuters will love easy access to Philadelphia. The Wallingford train station to downtown Philadelphia is one block from the front door, and access points to 476 and 95 are very close if you prefer to drive. Either way, the commute is about thirty minutes. The Philadelphia International Airport is twelve minutes away by car. For fun and relaxation, two local swim clubs can be found within a few blocks of the house, and downtown Media’s shops and restaurants are less than a mile and a half from the front door. Move right in and enjoy every simple luxury in a peaceful and convenient location.
