Enjoy your piece of the countryside just blocks from Swarthmore Borough library, shops and residential rail station! Just four blocks from the heart of town a picturesque cape cod set on a generous double lot welcomes you. Each room of this very special home is bathed in beautiful sunlight and offers peaceful views of the park-like property through efficient new windows. Oak floors and fresh neutral paint throughout make it easy to move right in and enjoy! Step through the portico to enter a spacious living room with a wood burning fireplace and large picture window. A charming corner cupboard can be found in the open dining room. The recently renovated kitchen is appointed with oak cabinets and granite countertops, double lazy susans, and a stainless steel under mount sink. The kitchen is open to the breakfast room – a perfect spot to sip tea and read the paper. Doors from the dining and breakfast rooms lead into a cozy family room with oak floors, solid wood panels, a wood burning stove with heatilator venting, and a panoramic view of the meadow-like backyard through double picture windows. To the right of the living room a full bath and two sunny bedrooms allow easy first floor living. Upstairs two additional bedrooms feature an unusual amount of storage. A full tile bath can also be found upstairs. The lower level provides generous storage and a laundry area. A door from the breakfast room leads to an attached two-car garage – a rare luxury in Swarthmore Borough. Enjoy the shade of mature trees as you picnic in your spacious backyard. Blocks away the R3 train is a quick twenty minutes from Center City!
