207 Riverview Road

207 Riverview Road, Swarthmore, PA 19081


This Victorian twin has been kept in the family for fifty-seven years – treasured for its unique location within a few blocks of the swim club, the soccer field, the elementary school, and all that downtown Swarthmore has to offer. The detached in-law cottage above the two-car garage is ready for restoration, and provides a unique opportunity for extended family to enjoy both proximity and privacy. Step onto the picturesque front porch and enter the cozy living room with dual archways to the dining room. The kitchen has a large pass-through as well as fresh countertops and glass tile backsplash. Off the kitchen the spacious sunroom features wood laminate floors, two ceiling fans, and beautiful views over the yard. A full bath with stall shower completes the first floor. Off the sunroom, the side deck is a great spot to sip lemonade and watch events at Henderson Field. Upstairs, the main bedroom overlooks the field and trees. The second bedroom has a lovely view of the backyard. The full hall bath has ceramic tile floor and surround and a large linen closet. The third floor features the third bedroom as well as an open den/loft area, which can easily be enclosed as a fourth bedroom. Sensible recent updates include new Central Air and gas heater in 2015. The level backyard leads to the two-car detached garage with workroom and storage. Stairs lead up to an expansive deck overlooking the creek and trees. The two-bedroom in-law apartment has an open floor plan that includes a legal kitchen (a rarity in Swarthmore Borough). Your restoration will make this useful space feel like a Poconos getaway. Served by Wallingford-Swarthmore schools, and close to the regional rail station, 207 Riverview will quickly feel like home.
