HUNTINGDON VALLEY, Pennsylvania, 19006 $400,000
Located in the desirable community of Greenridge, this immaculate late 50~s ranch home has been thoughtfully & respectfully expanded throughout the years. First, let's talk about the neighborhood, which provides ample areas for long walks with the dog(s) on the quiet, sidewalk lined side streets with no through traffic. The Pine Road Elementary School is located at the end of the neighborhood, and could provide a great morning walk during good weather. Just 5 minutes away, all the cute shops of Bryn Athyn, including the delightful Be Well Bakery & Cafe and several other great little restaurants. The Huntingdon Valley Library is nearby as well as several Township parks. The Pennypack Trail is just a short 10 minute drive (or 20 minute bike ride), while easy access to Route 1, I-95 and the Pennsylvania Turnpike are all within 15 minutes away. This wonderful stone-fronted home is deceptively larger than it appears from the street. Offering 3 nicely sized bedrooms, the expansions have included the conversion of the original 2-car garage into a very spacious family room (with a wood burning stove, and a large picture window overlooking the rear patio). A cozy den & breakfast room was added off the rear of the home, connecting the kitchen & dining rooms and providing a surprisingly open floorplan for a house of this vintage. Most recently, a larger master bathroom was added and the original en-suite was converted to a walk-in closet. To replace the garage, an over-sized run-in shed was constructed (walls on 3 sides) to house 2 cars and a large garden shed with running water takes up 1/3 of this entire structure. The original living room overlooks the large & level front yard & retains the original wood-burning fireplace. There is a fully finished basement that almost doubles the living space of the first floor. There are 6 distinct rooms in the basement, including a huge playroom (with a dry bar), the laundry room, the folding room, a walk-in cedar closet, another space that is perfect for those that wish to home school (with three built-in desks) and a large workroom for all the tools! The central HVA/C system was replaced in the past 10 years with a high-efficiency unit, and all the windows are double-pane, thermal replacements. The back yard is a private oasis, surrounded by large evergreens, specimen plantings & ample perennials. A large grassy area is perfect for a game of soccer or playing catch with the baseball. Whether you are starting out, or are looking to downsize to one-floor living, it's a wonderful home, in a wonderful neighborhood, waiting for you to call it home!
