This charming center hall colonial is perfectly located next to two parks and just blocks from downtown Swarthmore’s train station, shops and library. Enter the center hall for a taste of the freshly refinished oak floors found throughout most of the home. The living room is bright and spacious with a wood-burning fireplace, built-in bookcase, and recessed lighting to provide the perfect ambiance day or night. The formal dining room has large windows overlooking the front lawn. The eat-in kitchen is bright and spacious with stainless appliances, granite counters and plenty of room for cooking and entertaining. A door from the kitchen leads out to the screened porch. The vaulted ceiling and lush view of the garden draw your eye, while the ceiling fan keeps the space comfortable all summer long. A handy powder room, large coat closet, and inside access to the attached garage complete the first floor. Upstairs, a large landing leads to the master suite, which boasts refinished oak floors, three large windows, and a generous closet with stairs to a floored storage attic. The second bedroom is nearly as large as the master with hardwood floor and views over Strath Haven Avenue. The third and fourth bedrooms have large closets and pretty views over the side and back yards. A full tile hall bath completes the second floor. The lower level is semi-finished. Central Air and a garage add comfort to everyday life. Best of all is the location – just three blocks from Swarthmore College campus, the village shops, library and Media-Elwyn line train station!
