 1 front

Deep in the heart of Heatherwold, a magical garden welcomes you to the front door of 49 Green Valley Road. Each room of this light-filled expanded colonial has glorious views of the property, and classic Wallingford character. Finished oak floors and soft neutral colors throughout make it easy to move right in and enjoy life in one of Wallingford’s most beloved neighborhoods. The living room is home to a cozy gas fireplace and is open to a light-filled dining room with custom built-ins and a picture window overlooking the hellbore garden. The kitchen features wooden cupboards, a Corian countertop, a dishwasher, a pantry. The thoughtful family room addition is in keeping with the scale of the rest of the house. Floor-to-ceiling built-in bookshelves flank a set of French doors leading to a greenhouse room – the only one of its kind in Heatherwold. Off the family room are a powder room/laundry room combination, and foyer with shelves and a door to the yard. Upstairs, three generous bedrooms offer a wealth of nooks and crannies and picturesque views of the property. The hall bath has a vaulted ceiling and skylight as well as an over-sized storage vanity and a linen closet. Adjoining the living room is a large sunroom, which spills onto a generous deck leading down to a small wooden shade house – all of which overlook the breathtakingly lovely grounds. The unique property has an extra lot in the rear and offers a gorgeous expanse of emerald lawn, framed by lush landscaped paths, conversation gardens and even a koi pond. Lush gardens and casual twilight strolls are everyday luxuries in Heatherwold. The Wallingford elementary school, Strath Haven Middle School, and High School, as well as the train station, post office, and Helen Kate Furness Free Library, and the only convenience store in the school district are all less than a mile from the front door of this very special house. The exquisite gardens have been on the tours of many illustrious horticultural societies (including the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society, Garden Writers of America and the Hardy Plant Society).
