1 front

This expanded 1920s colonial offers quintessential Swarthmore charm, with plenty of nooks and crannies! A winding path leads to the front door. Enter the generous living room, which spans the house from front to back. Finished oak floors and a brick fireplace add character, while French doors to the patio fill the space with light. The formal dining room is large enough for entertaining and features a built-in corner cabinet and elegant sconce lights. The updated kitchen features a ceramic tile floor, oak cabinets, granite countertops, a stainless steel under-mount sink and a tile backsplash. Off the kitchen are an updated powder room and the family room addition with oak floors and a gorgeous view over the backyard through a picture window. A mudroom with a pantry closet and a door to the driveway completes the first floor. Upstairs the main bedroom boasts oak floors and two closets. The second bedroom has a chair rail and overlooks University Place. The sunny third bedroom has a view over the rear garden. The updated full hall bath has a ceramic tile floor, storage vanity and mirror, linen closet and a Cinderella bathtub. The fourth bedroom overlooks the backyard and boasts plenty of built-ins as well as an en suite full bath. The third floor consists of an enormous bedroom and an unfinished attic storage space. Outside, the patio overlooks the level fenced backyard with mature landscaping. Sensible features include a two-year old roof and dual zone heating and Central Air (with one brand new compressor). Best of all is the location – just three blocks from the Rutgers Avenue playgrounds, track and field. Swarthmore College campus, the village shops, the library, and Media-Elwyn line train station are less than ¾ mile from the front door.
