856 Brooke Avenue, Morton, PA 19070
Enjoy your piece of the countryside just blocks from Morton Borough shopping and residential rail station! This picturesque colonial is set on a rare double lot. The large living room welcomes you with gleaming bamboo floors and a wood-burning fireplace with stacked stone surround. The many large windows provide a panoramic view of the property. The formal dining room is large enough for entertaining. The updated eat-in kitchen includes wood cabinets and a new Bosch stainless dishwasher. A lush view of the side property can be seen from the eating area through a garden window. A door from the kitchen leads to a covered porch overlooking the enormous and fully fenced backyard, which spans over the creek. Upstairs the hall bath has been sumptuously updated with tile flooring and surround and a vaulted ceiling with skylight. The master bedroom also has a vaulted ceiling and a walk-in closet. Two additional bedrooms each have deep closets and peaceful views over the property. Sensible updates include: 2 year old Central Air to keep the house cool and comfortable all summer long, gas radiator heat, and custom honeycomb or Roman shades fitted to each of the windows, nearly all of which have been replaced. Enjoy the shade of mature trees and the gurgling of the creek as you picnic in your spacious backyard. Blocks away are downtown Morton, the Ridley Township Pool and the R3 train station to Center City! Less than a mile away are the Ridley YMCA and Amosland Elementary School. Easy access to Rt. 95 means the Philadelphia International Airport is fifteen minutes away. Downtown Philadelphia can be reached by car in as little as twenty-five minutes, and by train in twenty! One visit to this suburban paradise and you’ll never want to say good-bye!
