Fall in love with the picture perfect location and quintessential Swarthmore charm ? impress your friends with millennial efficiency and elegant finishes! This 1920s colonial has been meticulously restored and expanded to make it easy to live in and easy to love. A deep front porch allows a tranquil spot to sip tea and watch the world go by. Enter the generous living room to enjoy the soft neutral colors, beautiful wood floors, high ceilings and thoughtful lighting found throughout the first floor. Bright windows overlook leafy Union Avenue, and the decorative brick fireplace makes a lovely focal point. Double coat closets keep this light-filled space organized. The formal dining room is large enough for entertaining and is open to the living room. Form meets function in the luxurious new open concept kitchen, boasting a hardwood floor, premium York cabinets, glossy granite countertops, sleek gray subway tile backsplash, stainless steel under mounted sink, and brand new stainless steel gas range, built-in microwave and dishwasher. The kitchen is open to the spacious family room addition with its peaceful views over the backyard. The two-story expansion of this home was executed under the architectural advisement of Andersen Design Group, and the thoughtful design shows in every inch of this bright and airy space, which fits seamlessly into the spirit of the existing home. A brand new powder room completes the first floor. Venture upstairs, but take a moment on the landing to admire an original brick detail of the home, carefully preserved for your enjoyment by the builder. The light-filled master bedroom addition offers a walk-in closet as well as a sumptuous new bath with a double vanity and glass shower stall featuring subway tile surround. Two additional bedrooms with bright windows and modern closets can be found on the second floor as well as a laundry room/office combination space. The third floor is home to the fourth bedroom. Green upgrades include: new windows, insulation, and brand new dual zoned gas heaters and Central Air units to keep the house comfortable all year long.
