 1 Front

This Victorian twin offers space and charm, both outdoors and in. Best of all, it is perfectly located just blocks from Swarthmore town center! A classic portico leads to the front door. The sunny and spacious living room introduces the oak floors and original moldings found throughout the first and second floors. French doors lead to the formal dining room with its view over the back garden. Also off the living room is a screened porch, overlooking the side yard. The renovated kitchen features a ceramic tile floor, concrete countertops, glass tile backsplash, gas stove and GE dishwasher & refrigerator. The handy mudroom boasts plenty of space for boots, backpacks and books! Refinished oak stairs lead to the second floor where 3 bedrooms and a full tile hall bath can be found as well as a home office with a view over Cornell Avenue. The third floor opens to an enormous master suite with walk-in closet and a sumptuous master bath. With a lavishly tiled dual head shower-for-two and twin sinks and vanities this space is both practical and romantic. The fenced backyard is level and just the right size, with a large brick patio. The peacefulness of the outdoor space belies a handy location just four blocks from the Swarthmore train station, library, playgrounds, parks and shops!

Outside there is a level backyard which is just the right size to enjoy but not enough to make lawn care a chore! (The area with the toys is a round brick patio!)
