200 S. Swarthmore Avenue, Swarthmore, PA 19081
A light-filled and updated interior awaits you within this fairytale colonial on two thirds of an acre of level land with view of creek and woods!
Step into the entry hall for a taste of the gleaming hardwood floors and subtle colors found throughout the house.
The generous living room features a fireplace, picture windows, and charming built-ins.
The fireplace wraps around to an open dining room with another picture window giving a view over Little Crum Creek Park.
The enormous gourmet kitchen has been lovingly renovated and features: natural maple cabinets, Corian countertops, Karndean flooring, tile backsplash and upscale appliances including a Sub Zero refrigerator, Viking range, and Bosch dishwasher. The large eating area has views over the property as well as a door to a generous flagstone patio.
A powder room is tucked between the kitchen and front hall.
Also on the first floor is a sumptuous master suite addition with radiant heating, accessed through a private office with a skylight. The master bath features a glass stall shower and a soaking tub with handsome granite surround, which is echoed in the granite floor and vanity counter. The master bedroom boasts a wall of closets, recessed lighting, and a picture window with a gorgeous view of the woods and stream.
The second floor includes three additional bedrooms and two full baths.
A bright family room can be found on the lower level, with a stone fireplace, a powder room and doors to the driveway and garage.
Set near the center of town, this lovely home is just blocks from Swarthmore College, train station, shopping & schools and is minutes from all the major routes.
