Just one tree-lined block from the downtown Swarthmore train station, library and shops, a charming twin with a blue door awaits. The enclosed front porch is spacious enough to be a second sitting room. Inside, gorgeous original moldings and classic Swarthmore nooks and crannies help the house feel like home immediately. The soft neutral colors will suit any décor. A cozy arched niche in the living room makes a perfect office or reading nook. The formal dining room has a small pass through to the updated kitchen, with fresh tile flooring and natural wood cabinets. A screened porch overlooks the fenced backyard. Upstairs, the main bedroom has a bank of large windows overlooking Dartmouth Avenue’s tree canopy. Two additional bedrooms and a full hall bath can also be found on this level. The attic is partially floored for storage. Sensible upgrades include whole-house rewiring, and a newer gas heater and hot water heater. Served by prestigious Wallingford-Swarthmore schools, this just-right sized home is less than half a block from the foot path to Swarthmore-Rutledge Elementary School in one direction, and one block from the heart of the village in the other!
