Monthly Estimate* How much can I afford?

Incredible opportunity in Swarthmore to create your dream home just blocks from the train, college and town center! This half acre property is a beautiful setting, featuring lawn and gardens, fruit trees and berry bushes. In front is a curb cut for access and in the back is a driveway from Yale Avenue leading to off-street parking and the barn/garage buildings. From the front sidewalk, take the path to the screened porch, a large private fresh air sanctuary, nestled in the trees. Once inside the front door, there is a foyer area and the staircase. The large formal living room is to the left. Original details include a bay window with built-in seating, a fireplace, and access to the family room. The family room has bookshelves and a closet and leads to the side door to the yard. Behind the family room is a large formal dining room over-looking the expansive gardens. On the other side of the first floor is a breakfast room open to the kitchen, a laundry area and a half bath. Off the back of the kitchen is another door to the property outside. Downstairs is a full unfinished basement with the utilities, storage, an informal wine cellar and tons of potential. The main staircase was originally a split stair, which could be re-opened to have access from both the front and back of the home. Upstairs on the second floor are three large bedrooms with gorgeous natural light, and a full hall bath. Continue up to the third floor and find two more bedrooms and a full bathroom. Cherished by the same family for nearly 50 years, this special property is currently occupied and is being sold “as is”. Buyer is responsible for municipal U&O. Located in award-winning Wallingford-Swarthmore School District within the Borough of Swarthmore, the home is convenient to small town amenities within Swarthmore Village, as well as Media Borough and the City of Philadelphia, public transportation, the airport and major regional highways.
