333 Kenilworth Lane, Lower Gwynedd

Situated on a gorgeous lot, 333 Kenilworth is an immaculate, turn-key home on a quiet cul-de-sac. This refined home has been tastefully updated throughout, has a fantastic flow, and is filled with natural light. Rarely does a home like this become available.

From the moment that you approach the home, it is evident that you are in store for something very special. 333 oozes curb appeal and is even more spectacular when in bloom.

Inside, you are welcomed into a lovely foyer that offers a view through the house and into the beautiful back yard. To your left is a spacious living room featuring a bank of windows that bathe the room in natural light. The focal point is a wood-burning fireplace complete with bluestone hearth, custom wood mantle, and lighted built-ins on either side. The living room also offers recessed lighting, crown molding, and hardwood flooring (which continue throughout this level). The living room flows into the dining room that is large enough to comfortably accommodate a sizable table and hutch.

The dining room opens into an absolutely gorgeous kitchen. This is a true cooks kitchen boasting beautiful Cherry cabinets, Soapstone countertops perfectly married with a stainless steel counter surrounding the sink, tons of workspace and abundant storage, and the ideal “golden triangle” making this kitchen not only aesthetically pleasing but extremely functional. You will also appreciate the lighted cabinets, under-counter task lighting, out of sight microwave, built-in pantry, cookbook niche, stainless steel appliances including a double oven, and fabulous bar seating. Another very important aspect of this space is the connection with the outdoors. The rear wall is essentially a wall of windows that offers beautiful views of the peaceful backyard and truly brings the outdoors in. With these three important rooms (and the outside) interconnected, this home is made for entertaining.

Up a short flight of stairs, the second level offers three bedrooms and two bathrooms. The generous master bedroom features a lovely ensuite bathroom with custom cabinetry, frameless glass shower, and radiant heated flooring. Two additional, nicely sized bedrooms share a hall bath which also boasts custom cabinetry and a heated floor. Note the transom window that was thoughtfully incorporated in order to bring natural light into this space.

Up one more short flight of stairs is the fourth bedroom. This is a large room that is currently set up as a guest suite/craft room. The room offers tasteful built-ins and a huge closet. While viewing the closet, be sure to peek into the attic and see more storage space than anyone could possibly need.

Down below on the lower level, you will find a cozy, yet spacious, family room. This comfortable space offers lovely views into the backyard and a wall of built-ins, as well as, a large storage closet, an out of the way powder room, and outside access to the driveway side of the house. Opposite the family room, you will find a large laundry/mudroom that offers access to the attached two-car garage and a huge crawlspace, offering even more storage.

With the exception of the lower level, you will find hardwood flooring throughout the house.

The owners have essentially redone the entire house, top to bottom, during their tenure at 333. Every single renovation and improvement (inside and out) was done with the utmost care and no expense was spared. Not having any intention of moving anytime soon, the roof was done with 40-year shingles and an invasive energy audit was completed a few years ago and close to $30k was spent on improvements in order to make the home as efficient as can be. This includes, but is not limited to, air sealing of the entire building envelope, replacing almost all of the ductwork, new insulation in the walls and attic, a high-end chimney damper, and new high-efficiency HVAC. When making exterior improvements, including installing Hardie Plank siding and Azek trim, they decided to upgrade the electric and have it placed underground. All of the windows and doors have been replaced. The kitchen and baths are beautiful. There is literally nothing left to do.

If you enjoy nature, you will love this private oasis. There is a large deck in the rear of the home, providing plenty of space for a dining area, a place to grill, and a lounge area. The rear yard is fully fenced (brand new in 2019) and is an absolute dream. The landscaping has been perfectly curated, boasting countless perennials and flowering trees. You will enjoy cultivating in the charming garden, tinkering in the shed (complete with electric), and playing in the grass.

Even if you are local, you may not be familiar with Kenilworth Lane as it is a small cul-de-sac of only six homes, with zero through traffic. Despite being “off the beaten path” the Lower Gwynedd location is fantastic and close to everything, including downtown Ambler and the train to the city, major routes of travel, and beautiful hiking trails. This home affords children to attend Wissahickon Schools, including Lower Gwynedd Elementary.

333 Kenilworth offers a rare opportunity that you do not want to miss. This property will not last long, do not delay in seeing it! For more information or a private showing (available beginning Thursday, January 23rd), please contact me, Allison Wolf. 215-704-9888 | allison.wolf@foxroach.com

Adjacent to the family room is the laundry room, complete with a utility sink and built-in shelving, as well as access to a conveniently located powder room. Off the laundry room is one of the highlights of the home, a huge screened-in porch that you are sure to fall in love with. The porch offers plenty of room for dining and relaxing (game of darts, anyone?) and I guarantee that this will be one of the most widely used rooms in the home, during the warmer months.

Outside, the back yard is a dream. It is fully fenced and perfectly sized. Once the trees have their leaves, it is private and lush. If you are the lucky owner of this home, you will be moved in in time to see the Cherry Tree in full bloom.

The location is fantastic; sought after Wissahickon School District, within the boundaries of Lower Gwynedd Elementary, and walkable to downtown Ambler and the train into the city. There is so much to be said about living in Ambler, as not only is it a wonderful, tight knit community, but there is so much to do. Ambler boasts an incredible array of restaurants, two breweries(!), shopping and services, the best cooperative grocery store, annual festivals, a seasonal farmers’ market, a new library is in the works, and more! There are two parks that are both located just blocks away; Riccardi Park which offers a playground, tennis and pickleball courts, a walking trail, and an open field and Ambler Borough Park, a natural, dog-friendly, park with a creek.

In terms of commuting, the location couldn’t be more convenient, as you are minutes from the train station and route 309, which leads to all major routes of transportation. This home is in move-in condition allowing you to unpack and start living your life in this wonderful town. Don’t wait too long, as this home will not last!

Relocation for work has the current owners of 400 Hoover Road moving much sooner than they would have ever expected. They were thrilled to find this charming three bedroom, two full bath home in Wissahickon School District and quickly worked to make it their own.

1965 Springer Road, Harleysville

If you are looking for privacy and beautiful views, but need a convenient location, this is your lucky day. Located on a quiet street, 1965 Springer Road offers a retreat from the hustle and bustle of everyday life but is just minutes from major routes of transportation. Situated on close to 1.5 acres, you will find a lovely, well kept, home and lush, peaceful grounds.

As you pull up, you will immediately notice the eye catching curb appeal and expansive driveway which allows for plenty of parking. Inside, be prepared to be wowed, as this home offers fabulous space and a floor plan that you likely aren’t expecting.

You are welcomed into a sizable living room boasting a wood burning fireplace (the kind that keeps all the heat in the house, instead of losing it up the chimney), tons of light from a picture window, and hardwood flooring. You will be pleased to see the defined entryway offers a coat closet and the perfect spot for a console table to catch your mail, keys, and the like.

Straight ahead, you will see the dining room which also offers hardwood flooring, fantastic built-in storage, and your first view into the backyard. What will surprise you is what you find once you set foot into the dining room as this open floor plan is not something that the average ranch offers. It is very special, indeed.

The kitchen is often referred to as the heart of the home, and in this case it is, both figuratively and literally. You will see that the kitchen is located between the dining room, separated by an incredibly convenient buffet-style peninsula, and the show stealing great room. The kitchen offers great workspace, abundant storage (including a pantry), granite countertops, a tasteful backsplash, and stainless steel appliances. You will also find access to the garage and outdoor living space from the kitchen, but first, onto the great room…

This is where you will live in this house, period. Honestly, the space feels so good, I don’t want to leave when I visit, and neither will you. You are almost entirely surrounded by windows, yet it is completely private, all you will see are spectacular views of the property. There are also skylights above, so the space is bathed in natural light, almost to the point of feeling like you are outside. The room itself is grand in scale and the vaulted ceiling makes it feel even more so. There are sliding glass doors that lead from the great room out onto the expansive Trex deck, your outdoor living space. This deck was just installed in 2017 and is essentially maintenance-free. There stairs to the rear yard from the deck, as well as ground-level access from the driveway, and a breezeway that connects to the garage.

Back inside you will find that the bedrooms are on the opposite end of the house, providing a nice separation. Hardwood flooring runs the length of the hallway and into all three bedrooms. The master bedroom is nicely sized and offers an ensuite bathroom. You will also find two additional bedrooms and a full hall bathroom on this side of the house.

Down below, the basement is huge and offers high ceilings, outside access, and heating. The basement is not currently finished as living space, but it easily could be. You will find the laundry in this area, as well as, tons of storage space.

Outside, the 1.42 acres are beautiful and serene. Every season is spectacular at 1965 Springer, however, watching the snowfall from the great room and blanket the property is definitely a favorite. Speaking of snow, no need to clean off your car after a storm, as there is a roomy two-car garage that boasts additional storage as well.

If all of this isn’t enough, wait until you hear what has been done in the past few years… In 2017, central air was installed, as well as, the Trex deck and beautiful cedar shake siding. The roof was completely replaced and the driveway was extended and repaved in 2016. A brand new septic system and boiler were installed in 2014. When I say that there is nothing for you to do, I’m not kidding. Unpack, settle in, and enjoy all that 1965 Springer has to offer.

In terms of the location, it is less than a five-minute drive to 476 and five minutes in the opposite direction will land you in charming Skippack Village. Merck is a hop, skip and a jump away, as are several parks, including Evansburg State Park, which offers hiking, fishing, golfing, and more. Last but not least, the taxes are beyond reasonable. There is nothing that you won’t love about this house, so do yourself a favor and be sure to see it this weekend!

Showings begin Friday, October 4th. For more information or a private showing, please contact me, Allison Wolf. 215-704-9888 | allison.wolf@foxroach.com

Adjacent to the family room is a large laundry room and mudroom/workspace, which also includes a conveniently located powder room and access to the rear yard.

Outside, you will fall in love with the back yard, as it is perfectly sized, fenced-in, and private. Just off of the back door is a large patio area, accommodating dining, lounging, and cooking areas. You are sure to spend countless evenings enjoying the built-in seating area and fire pit. There are raised beds for gardening and a sizable shed for storage. While fenced, the rear of the property offers additional privacy in the way of a bamboo ‘privacy wall’. This bamboo was installed the right way, in a retained bed with root (shoot) barrier, so it grows only where it was planted and does not travel.

229 Highland also features a high-efficiency heater, central air conditioning, off-street parking for two cars, and more. The location is ideal; sought after Wissahickon School District, and just a few blocks from downtown Ambler and the train into the city. Living in Ambler is a dream, as not only is it a wonderful, tight knit community, but there is so much to do. Ambler boasts an incredible array of restaurants, two breweries(!), shopping and services, the best cooperative grocery store, annual festivals, a seasonal farmers’ market, several great parks, a library, and more! Did I mention that this is all within walking distance??? This home is a special opportunity, one that you do not want to miss!
