Fall in love with the picture-perfect location and quintessential Swarthmore charm! This spacious 1920 colonial offers a rare opportunity to update a classic Swarthmore home to your own taste. The covered front porch is a welcoming spot for sipping lemonade and watching the world go by even on a rainy day. Step inside for a taste of the oak floors and fairytale built-ins found throughout the first floor. The living room spans the depth of the original house, allowing light to suffuse the space from front to back and through a quadruple bank of windows overlooking the side yard. The brick wood-burning fireplace and the built-ins give the large space a cozy feel. The formal dining room is as large as the living room with ample space for entertaining. Two built-in glass door cabinets frame a window overlooking the front yard. Another quadruple bank of windows overlooks the side yard. The expanded kitchen space offers so much opportunity for a lucky new owner to renovate to taste. Currently, this space is divided by a counter with a functional kitchen comprising the space nearest the dining room and an open breakfast room with a huge bank of windows overlooking the yard in the rear. Off the kitchen is a lovely den with attached powder room. A wall of windows in the den allows views over the backyard. Also off the kitchen are the back stairs and a mini-butler's pantry entry to the basement. The second floor is home to the master bedroom with en suite bath. Four additional bedrooms, each with beautiful views can be found on the second floor as well as a full hall bath. The third floor includes a charming 6th bedroom as well as a floored storage attic. A stone patio overlooks the great big backyard. Best of all is the location ? just three blocks from Swarthmore College campus, the village shops, library and Media-Elwyn line train station!
