Imagine a country home replete with simple luxuries: a view of the woods, bright open spaces for entertaining, cozy nooks and crannies, and every modern update for your comfort. Just a mile and a half from the heart of Media Borough’s restaurants, shops and galleries, a country road joins the town and the reservoir. A long driveway carries you home to a spacious expanded colonial set on a generous flag lot. The center hall introduces the soft, neutral colors, lustrous oak floors and handsome moldings found throughout most of the home. A formal living room and a dining room with wooded views can be found on either side of the hall. The enormous kitchen is suffused with beautiful light and features new GE slate appliances as well as ample granite and Corian counter tops for prep and an open seating area large enough for a second dining table – perfect for gatherings where the whole party ends up in the kitchen. The expanded family room offers a window seat overlooking the woods and a cozy fireplace. A door from the family room leads to the sunroom, which opens onto a spacious composite deck. Steps from the deck arrive at a wide patio with doors back into the kitchen, creating a wonderful flow for entertaining and a dreamy blend of outdoors and in. Laundry facilities and a powder room can also be found on the first floor. Upstairs the sizeable master bedroom suite includes a walk-in closet and a sumptuously renovated master bath with tile floor, quartz topped storage vanities and a glass shower stall with pebble floor. Three additional bedrooms, all with peaceful views and beautiful hardwood floors, can also be found on the second floor as well as a hall bath with a deep Jacuzzi tub and separate glass stall shower. Each bedroom closet has a built-in organizer. Pull down stairs lead to a storage attic. The basement is full and finished with a walk-in cedar closet as well as a storage room, oversized rec room space, workshop and utility area with a slop sink. Dual-zoned Central Air, quadruple zoned heat, and on-demand hot water will keep the house running efficiently and comfortably all year long. A two-car attached garage completes the picture. This home was expanded considerably with attention to subtlety of proportion – making it difficult to envision where the original house ends and the additions begin. Enjoy a serene, parklike setting in award-winning Rose Tree-Media Schools, just twenty minutes from the Philadelphia International Airport, thirty minutes from downtown Philadelphia, and moments away from all the shopping, dining, arts and activities offered in Media Borough’s vibrant town center.
