Creekside Haven – The Details

39 the creek

At the end of a cul-de-sac in elegant Todmorden a sumptuously renovated center hall colonial is set on more than three acres of beautiful grounds overlooking Ridley Creek. The current owners engaged the esteemed firm of Quindlen & Associates to complete a multi-stage renovation, taking full advantage of the breathtaking views from each room. Enter the center hall for a taste of the gleaming oak floors and gorgeous woodwork found throughout. To one side is a spacious office with beautiful views of the knoll, as well as a renovated powder room. To the other side the formal dining room boasts more hillside views and a door to the butler’s pantry. Follow the center hall back to the great room. The state-of-the-art kitchen is a chef’s dream and the family room fireplace is handsome stone – but the glorious view of creek and meadow, laid bare by a wall of windows, will draw your eye from everything else. Open yet cozy, sleek yet warm – this beautiful space provides the perfect setting for every mood and occasion. The kitchen features Century natural cherry cabinets with crown molding and granite counter tops with a tumbled marble backsplash. The curved granite island seats six. A manufactured stone under-mount double sink is echoed with a smaller round version in the butler’s pantry along with an integrated Bosch dishwasher with stainless interior. The walk-in pantry closet keeps the whole kitchen organized. A Jenn-Air dual-fuel range with stainless industrial hood will make cooking a pleasure. Custom wainscoting anchors the airy family room, as does the dry stone gas fireplace. Sliders off the family room open to a thoughtfully engineered deck. Suspended over the gentle hillside, this enormous deck offers a spectacular view of the creek and woods – a magical setting for parties, and an equally perfect place to sip tea quietly and watch the changing foliage. Below the deck, tiered brick patios lead all the way up to the home’s second entry hall. A picturesque covered porch opens into this foyer addition with mudroom storage closet and a window with yet another creekside vista. Upstairs, all four bedrooms are spacious with gleaming oak floors and stunning views. The hall bath has been luxuriously renovated with an oversized subway tile shower and large storage vanity. The master bath is spacious and ready for a new buyer to renovate to taste. Second floor laundry keeps washday simple. Pull-down stairs lead to an enormous floored attic with plenty of room for storage. The daylight basement has a high ceiling and French doors to the patios with plenty of potential for a buyer to finish. Outside, the meadow beckons. Picnic by the creek, and hike and mountain bike over three acres of trails. Or just relax and see if you can spot the blue heron and silver foxes enjoying the same natural beauty you are. Todmorden is a sought-after community served by prestigious Wallingford-Swarthmore Schools. It is just 2 miles from two regional rail stations to Philadelphia, downtown Media’s galleries shops and restaurants, and all major routes. Even the Philadelphia International Airport is just a 20 minute drive away! One visit to Creekside Haven and you won’t want to say good-bye.
