Being less than one square mile, the entire Borough of Ambler feels like one big neighborhood, but there is one small section of town that truly does have it’s own little neighborhood. This neighborhood is comprised of seven small streets that run between Tennis and Mt Pleasant Avenues, bordering Hendricks Street. 322 Walker Road is a turnkey, mid-century home, located in the center of this charming little neighborhood.
Prepare to be wowed by 322 Walker Road, as it is not your average Ambler home. Built in 1956, this mid-century, split level home boasts the open floor plan, that many older, Ambler homes don’t offer. Not only does the home have a great flow, but just about every inch of it has been improved over time; the kitchen, bathrooms, flooring, fixtures, walls, insulation, front patio, rear deck, you name it, it’s been done. That my friends, is very hard to find.
The curb appeal for this home is off the charts, as the exterior has been impeccably maintained. You are greeted by a lovely front patio, which was expanded and offers plenty of space for seating and plants, as well as an extended roof line that provides shelter from the elements above the front door. Once inside, the flooring takes center stage, as it is gorgeous, but you will also be impressed by the flow of the living room and dining room into the kitchen, and second floor above. The living room features a large bay window that brings in wonderful natural light, as well as, a cathedral ceiling providing for a very spacious feel. The dining room adjoins the living room, which flows beautifully into the kitchen. The kitchen is a major highlight of the home, as it was designed so well. Not only, were top of the line materials used, but the selections are very tasteful and the space was utilized perfectly. There are a multitude of cabinets, offering great storage space, including an awesome built in pantry. The built in bar offers seating on both sides, as well as additional storage below. Beautiful granite countertops, tastefully tiled backsplash, ceramic tile floor, stainless steel appliances, under mount sink, pendant lighting and more, make this kitchen a 10!
Down a short flight of stairs, you’ll find the family room. It is a very spacious room, but has a nice, cozy feel, particularly in the glow of the fireplace. Surrounding the fireplace are built-in cabinets and desk areas, the windows feature plantation shutters and crown molding provides a nice accent to round out the room. You will also find access to the rear deck and yard, as well as the powder room from this space. Adjacent to the family room is a sizable laundry room, as well as a separate office and den/playroom. Most homes of this style do not offer the office and den, as this space was originally part of the garage. The owners converted most of the garage into this lovely living space, but wisely left about half of the garage in tact, offering plenty of room for a lawn mower, bikes and the like.The garage space can be accessed from the den, or on the exterior of the home, from the garage door.
Upstairs on the second floor, you will find three nicely sized bedrooms and a full bath. All three bedrooms offer ceiling fans and great closet space. The hall bath is tastefully done and offers spacious built-ins surrounding the sink and vanity, as well as, a separate vanity area with additional storage behind the door.
Out back, you will find a large deck, complete with automated awning that provides both shade and privacy. The deck is just off the family room, affording a prime entertaining space for guests to mingle both inside and out, particularly this time of year (GO EAGLES!). The deck offers a gate, in the case you’d like to keep little ones from heading out into the yard on their own. The yard offers place to play or garden, and also has a shed for additional outside storage.
Homes like this don’t come along too often, so you don’t want to delay in scheduling your appointment! Showings begin on Saturday, October 1st. For more information, or a private showing, please contact me, Allison Wolf. | 215-704-9888 | [email protected]
