65 Forest Lane

Swarthmore, PA 19081

This timeless stone colonial offers a location on one of the most sought-after streets in Swarthmore. Just a few blocks north of the elementary school, the emerald lawns sweep back and sprawling stone colonials line the gentle curve toward the Swarthmore Swim Club and soccer field. The vibrant Swarthmore Hills neighborhood is the perfect setting for this spacious home. Enter the covered front porch. The foyer introduces the lustrous random width oak floors that are found throughout the first floor. A large coat closet and a powder room can be found off the hall. The generous living room is filled with soft light from four large windows with deep sills overlooking the front lawn. The formal dining room has a picturesque wood burning fireplace with built-ins, and a Dutch door to the screened porch. The renovated kitchen boasts ceramic tile floor, cherry cabinets, granite countertops, a stainless steel under-mount sink and stainless steel appliances. A beautiful picture window in the breakfast area offers a peaceful view of the Japanese maple in the backyard. Down a few steps from the kitchen, the former garage is a fantastic family room, perfect for curling up to watch a movie. The built-in shelving easily accommodates a large book or movie collection. Upstairs, each of the four generous bedrooms boasts finished oak floors and offers pretty views over the neighborhood. The hall bath has been updated and there are two large hall closets to keep things tidy. The master suite has two closets as well as an updated master bath with glass tile accents. The floored attic provides wonderful storage. The unfinished basement has a partial French drain system. A BRAND NEW heater and fuel tank provide peace of mind. Central Air keeps the house comfortable all year long. Doors from the dining room and kitchen lead to a screened porch, perfect for summer lunches. The screened porch spills out onto a flagstone patio overlooking the backyard, which has a handy new shed. The setting is so peaceful, yet the convenient location is just blocks from award-winning Swarthmore-Rutledge Elementary school and less than a mile from downtown Swarthmore's regional rail station, library & shops. Downtown Media is a seven-minute drive away - its restaurants, galleries and shops await your next excursion! Complimentary 1 year AHS Home Warranty included. Competitively priced to allow for your improvements, 65 Forest Lane offers timeless charm, generous space, and a picture perfect location
