817 Hancock

1 Front exterior

On a quiet street in Milmont Park, just blocks from the residential rail station, an expanded brick twin awaits. Central Air, a master suite, and a family room addition all bring comfort and convenience to this low maintenance home. The beautifully landscaped front garden welcomes you. Step inside for a taste of the exposed woodwork and handsome decor found throughout the house. The living room has a bright picture window overlooking Hancock Street. Open to the living room, the formal dining room boasts an oak parquet floor and stained glass window. The eat-in kitchen has been updated with oak cabinets, tile backsplash, cast iron sink, and newer appliances, including a GE stove and refrigerator and a Frigidaire dishwasher. Off the kitchen, the first floor laundry room makes wash day a breeze. The first floor family room is filled with soft light from five windows, which allow a peaceful view over the rear garden. Upstairs, the master bedroom offers a double closet as well as a true walk-in closet. The master bath has a glass stall shower and storage vanity. Two additional bedrooms can be found on the second floor, each with views over Hancock Street and large closets. The hall bath features a bathtub with surround and a pedestal sink. Every detail has been thoughtfully attended to, from the six panel closet doors in each bedroom to the finished pine woodwork in the family room, to the low maintenance landscaping in the front and rear gardens. Just big enough for a rose garden and a small patio, the rear yard is a mini-oasis – with no mowing required. Perfectly located, with the train station a few blocks in one direction and shopping in the other, the lucky new owners of 817 Hancock will have all the more time to spend enjoying a peaceful and comfortable new home. Ridley School District was included on Pennsylvania’s 2011 list of over-achieving districts. Ridley High School is just over a mile away. Its ample resources include state of the art science labs and an outstanding athletic department.
