The Wallingford-Swarthmore School District is consistently ranked among the top districts in the state with coveted Science, Music and Sports programs as well as open fields and parks for the whole community to enjoy. Here is a rare opportunity to own a beautifully renovated garden cottage within its parameters – with a mortgage payment that is lower than area rents. The spacious living room offers gleaming bamboo floors, crown molding, and a pretty view of the over-sized backyard. The eat-in kitchen has cork floors, and creamy white cabinets and a front garden view from the kitchen table. A handy utility closet with laundry hook-ups can be found off the kitchen. The hallway boasts a very large storage closet. Two good-sized bedrooms also provide plenty of closet space. The hall bath has been sumptuously remodeled with ceramic tile floor and tub surround, including glass accents. Outside, a patio extends from the front door all the way into the backyard and provides a perfect setting for warm weather parties. The great big backyard is encircled with a wooden privacy fence. Raspberry bushes line one side and a small grape arbor stretches across the back. A garden bed spills over with fresh tomatoes and other edibles. Relaxing in the peaceful atmosphere of this sheltered garden, you may find it hard to believe that award-winning Nether Providence Elementary School is right around the corner! Shopping, public transportation, libraries and more are all just minutes away. Sensible improvements include a new roof (2010) and heater & C/A replacement (2005).
