This timeless stone center hall colonial offers a location on one of the most prestigious streets in Wallingford. Just south of Rose Valley Road the emerald lawns sweep back and elegant Pennsylvania fieldstone colonials line the gentle curve toward the country club. Enter the center hall, which spans to the back of the house with a coat closet and charming original built-ins. The living room is also front-to-back allowing views of the verdant grounds on each side. A wood-burning fireplace and wall of built-in bookshelves give warmth and character to the large space. On the other side of the center hall is a large formal dining room with a bay of windows. The renovated kitchen is light and bright with plenty of storage. Birch cabinets, Corian counter tops, a glass cook-top, paneled refrigerator, appliance garage and two pantries all lend function and form to this space. The mudroom is open to the kitchen and its skylight fills both rooms with sunshine. Completing the first floor are a powder room and a door to the two-car garage. Upstairs each generous bedroom is large enough to double as a family room. All are adorned in traditional colonial colors and offer gorgeous views over the neighborhood. The master suite has an updated bath with shower stall. The floored attic provides wonderful storage. Off the living room is a door to a screened porch, perfect for summer lunches. The screened porch spills out onto a large deck overlooking the beautifully landscaped rear garden. The setting is so peaceful, yet the convenient location is less than two miles from award-winning Wallingford Elementary School and both the Wallingford and Swarthmore regional rail stations. Downtown Media is a six-minute drive away – its restaurants, galleries and shops await your next excursion!
