87 Lemon Street, Ambler

I’ll bet there’s a good chance that you didn’t know Lemon Street exists, as if you blink, you could miss it. Lemon Street runs parallel to the upper block of Orange Avenue, between Rosemary and Trinity. Being a quiet one-way street, only one block long, most have never traveled down Lemon Street, yet, it’s located in the heart of Ambler. If you are unfamiliar with this area, then you are in for a treat!

87 Lemon Street is a lovely stone home that speaks to the history of our town and period architecture that makes my heart swell. True to its age, the home oozes charm and character, yet has an open feel that most older homes lack. If you have an eye for detail you will appreciate the period trim and woodwork, beautiful, original hardwood floors, high ceilings, deep window sills and the like. 

Greeting you is a sweet front yard and charming porch; a key feature if you live in town. Inside you’ll find hardwood floors, spacious rooms, and tons of natural light from oversized windows. Once inside, you will see that the living room and dining room are open to one another, creating a perfect space for entertaining.

Through the original swinging door, you’ll find a huge, and modern, kitchen. If you like to cook, you will be wowed by the amount of workspace on the counters, under cabinet lighting, gas cooking and tons of storage space. You’ll be pleased to see the quintessential window over the kitchen sink and access to the rear yard. 

Upstairs, the hardwood floors continue, and you will find two nicely sized bedrooms and a huge four piece bathroom, complete with clawfoot tub, walk-in shower, and double vanity. Both rooms on this floor offer two closets each and there is a hall linen closet, as well.

Up another flight of stairs, the third floor feels like a private oasis, offering a third bedroom and additional bonus room. This additional room makes a great office, studio or playroom. Down below, the basement offers plenty of storage, laundry area, an exit to the rear yard and surprise quarter bath (if you will).

Outside, in the rear of the home, there is plenty of private, off-street parking; a must have when you live in town. When parking out back, you will likely use the rear entrance to the home which is covered (great for rainy days) and leads into the kitchen (perfect for grocery shopping at the soon-to-open Weavers Way, a few blocks away). The home has been very well maintained and is in great shape, offering replacement windows throughout, newer exterior doors, recently installed carefree decking on the front porch and much more.

You will love living here, as everything is close by! 87 Lemon Street is just a few blocks from several parks and hiking trails, restaurants, shops, a theater AND a playhouse, annual festivals, First Fridays, the Saturday farmers’ market, and more. This location is also a commuters dream, as the train station is a few blocks away, landing you in Philadelphia in about thirty minutes. It is also very conveniently located close to most major routes of travel. Offering low taxes and award winning Wissahickon schools, this is an incredible value, one that is not to be missed. Come, live the good life in Ambler!

Showings begin Friday, April 21st and there will be an open house on Sunday, April 23rd, 1-3pm. For more information or a private showing, please contact me, Allison Wolf. 215-704-9888 | [email protected]

You know that feeling when you walk into a house and it just feels good? That’s how this house makes me feel; tons of natural light, clean lines, an open floor plan and straight up zen-like vibes. Located in the Haywood Park section of Ambler, 427 Haywood Road is a mid-century split level home that really maximizes its square footage, offering great living space including three bedrooms, one and a half baths, open living room/dining room/kitchen and lower level family room.

From the moment that you walk through the front door, you are bound to feel at home. A wall of windows creates an extremely bright space and the vaulted ceiling gives the already spacious room and even bigger feel. The floor plan is very open, with the living room flowing into the dining room, and then into the updated kitchen. The living room is also open to the second floor, separated by a perfect mid-century style railing. Both the living room and dining rooms, as well as the second floor offer hardwood flooring. 

The kitchen was recently renovated and suits the style of the home very well. Tasteful choices were made, and quality materials were used during this renovation. Stainless steel appliances, lovely modern cabinets offering tons of storage space, Corian countertops with under mount sink, lovely subway tile backsplash and tile flooring, all of which are done in a very pleasing color palate. There is also a pantry and plenty of room for a small table, butcher block, bar cart, you name it.

Down a short flight of stairs, just off the dining room, is the family room. This is another bright and spacious room, also featuring a wall of windows, really connecting the outdoor living space. The family room provides access to the rear yard and patio, as well as the laundry room, powder room, storage area and garage.

The outdoor space is lovely, featuring large patio for dining and grilling, a fenced rear yard with raised beds for gardening and large storage shed. Last but not least, is the huge attached garage. This is not your average garage by any means, as it runs the entire length of the house, front to back, offering a surprising amount of space, electric and access to the rear yard, as well as into the house, through the laundry room. You can easily use your garage for parking AND storage/work space. If that isn’t enough, central air was installed in the home in April 2015, and the heater was replaced at that time, as well.
