Fall in love with the picture-perfect location and quintessential Swarthmore charm – impress your friends with millennial efficiency and elegant finishes! This charming cedar shake colonial with a standing seam metal roof has been meticulously restored to make it easy to live in and easy to love. A beautiful garden with low maintenance perennials gives the exterior a fairytale look. Enter the center hall to enjoy the finished oak floors and soft neutral colors found in each room of the home. A wood-burning fireplace with slate mantel adds character and to the light-filled living room. Recessed lighting and a state-of-the-art built in speaker system keep this space cheerful no matter how late the hour. The dining room is large enough for entertaining and offers a view of the Trex deck and rear garden through glass sliding doors. The open kitchen has a slate floor, quarter-sawn oak cabinets, soapstone counter tops, a slate backsplash and stainless-steel appliances including a GE Profile refrigerator, Bosch all-stainless dishwasher and Frigidaire range. Off the kitchen, the sunny den is the perfect hideaway to curl up with a book. The cozy space, with four bright windows and a glass door to the deck, is just the right size for a pull-out sofa, a television room, or even an office. Off the den is a powder room with stackable washer/dryer. Upstairs the master suite is large enough for a king-sized bed and boasts a wall of custom closet built-ins as well as three windows overlooking the backyard. The luxurious master bath features built-in speakers and radiant heat under a porcelain plank tile floor. The glass door shower has Carrera marble tile and an Eva velocity rain shower. A separate soaking tub boasts Hans Grohe fixtures, as does the generous marble-topped storage vanity with marble backsplash. The vaulted ceiling with its bright skylight gives this special oasis an airy feel. Two additional bedrooms with oak floors and pretty views can be found on the second floor. The third bedroom includes stairs to the floored storage attic. The basement is full and unfinished. Efficiency upgrades include newer windows, Central Air, and a Weil-McLain gas heater that quietly and inexpensively keeps the whole house cozy. Ceiling lighting has been added in each room and the oak floors have been refinished. Best of all is the location on one of Swarthmore’s rare cul-de-sacs, just blocks from Swarthmore College campus, the village shops, library and Media-Elwyn line train station!
