Quality inventory is extremely limited and your search has been frustrating, but the wait is finally over! 718 Bell Lane checks all of the important boxes; you will not be disappointed. The home has been lovingly cared for and beautifully maintained by the same family for the past 51 years. Yes, typically that means that the home is in need of significant updating, but that is not the case here. The two big ticket items, both the kitchen and master bath, have been tastefully, and recently, renovated. Aside from the recent updates, the home features many important attributes that you are likely looking for including, hardwood flooring, great natural light, nicely sized rooms, many newer windows, multi zoned heating and air conditioning, oversized two car garage, and an absolutely beautiful, fully fenced, yard.
This home offers a choice location- 718 Bell Lane is located on a quiet street in Maple Glen, a short walk from St Alphonsus and Our Lady of Mercy School and around the corner (sidewalks the entire way) from Maple Glen Elementary; less than two miles to three parks and a preserve; just a two minute drive to the grocery store, as well as, various shops and restaurants in Maple Glen; less than 10 minutes from downtown Ambler and the new mega Whole Foods complex in Springhouse; the train to Philadelphia, as well as, all major routes of transportation are all conveniently close by.
Welcoming you to 718 Bell Lane is a sweet porch, waiting for your rockers and seasonal decorations. Inside a lovely foyer provides a formal, yet comfortable, entrance into the home. You’ll find a large living room to your left, a view of the turned staircase straight ahead, a coat closet immediately to your right, and beyond that, a view down the hall into the dining room, kitchen and family room. As you make your way through the home, you’ll notice not only the hardwood floors, but newer, 6 panel, wood doors, almost throughout. The dining room, kitchen and family room connect to one another, creating a great flow for gatherings and daily living. The kitchen boasts an abundance of natural light, as does the rest of the home, beautiful cabinetry (and lots of it!), a ‘U’ shaped work area that offers wonderful counter space, stainless steel dishwasher, stove and built-in microwave, and adjacent breakfast room.The breakfast room provides access the rear patio, as well as, a separate laundry room and attached garage. The family room is perfectly sized and offers beautiful views of the rear yard. There is access to the rear yard from this space, as well.
The second floor offers four nicely sized bedrooms, all with hardwood flooring. The master bedroom features a spacious ensuite bath, complete with oversized shower enclosure with bench and multiple shower heads, vanity with plenty of counter space, and linen closet, as well as, a large, walk in closet. Down the hall, you’ll find three additional bedrooms, large hall bath and linen closet.
Down below, the basement offers tons of possibilities, including over 550 square feet of finished, living space. There are three separate finished rooms, although fair warning, the paneling and carpet are not likely finishes that one would pick these days. The space is totally functional as is, but if you wanted to brighten things up, the studs are already in place and wiring already done, making the job much more manageable. In addition to the finished space, there are also three unfinished rooms for storage, a walk out that leads to the side yard, and a separate heating zone.
One of the major highlights of this property is the lot and beautiful yard. The lot is level and the backyard just fenced within the past few months. There is also an oversized shed in the rear of the property, meaning you can actually park in the garage! The garage itself fits far more than just two cars, as it has built in storage in the form of shelves and cabinets, extra space and a side door, leading the to yard.
This is a wonderful home and a fantastic opportunity to enjoy living in a special neighborhood and sought after Upper Dublin School District.
