623 Cresson Lane


1 Exterior front

This classic cape cod is just blocks from downtown Swarthmore in Springfield Township. A large living room welcomes you, offering a picture window view of Cresson Lane. Step into the renovated kitchen – truly the heart of the house! The warm maple cabinets are topped with glistening granite, and the Maytag gas range makes cooking a breeze.  But it is the soft light and the ample space for a dining table that make this kitchen perfect for entertaining or just spreading out with a newspaper and a quiet cup of tea. A door off the kitchen leads to a handy first floor laundry room. Another door opens to a small deck overlooking the backyard. Also on the first floor are two spacious bedrooms with modern closets as well as an updated full hall bath. Upstairs are a half-bath and the third and fourth bedrooms featuring closets with access to generous storage in the eaves. Outside, the perfect sized backyard stretches from Cresson Lane into the Yale Square cul-de-sac.  Deep and level with mature trees for summer shade and a brilliant display of fall foliage – this peaceful space is the family room for most of the year!  Central air, a newer roof, and a layout that puts each room of the home to work daily all add up to make this a sensible choice. The picture-perfect location is as luxurious as it is convenient – just blocks from two R3 train stations (including an express stop), the Swarthmore Swim Club, Henderson Field’s town-sponsored sports activities and beautiful Little Crum Creek Park!
