The owners are not ready to say goodbye to their beloved home, but work life has other plans for them, presenting you with an incredible opportunity.

Located in the tight knit Ardsley section of Glenside, this expanded ranch home really maximizes its square footage, offering great living space, far more than you would expect judging by the listed square footage. The first floor consists of 956 square feet, and you will find another 420 square feet (approximately) of additional living space in the lower level.

From the outset, the curb appeal of this house is absolutely charming, and even more so when the perennials are in bloom. You will love the sweet front porch, the perfect place to sit and greet your neighbors as they walk by.

From the moment that you walk through the front door, you will feel at home. A light color palate, an abundance of windows, and recessed lighting creates an extremely bright and welcoming space. Entering into the living room, you are sure to appreciate the fireplace and shiplap accent wall, as well as the built-ins, and the beautiful hardwood flooring. The living room is open to the dining room which offers plenty of space for a sizable table and flows comfortably into kitchen. This kitchen is so bright and happy, it makes you want to spend time here. Almost everything is white; the cabinetry, the appliances, the bead-board backsplash, and the porcelain farmhouse sink, which is a lovely contrast to the gray Corian countertops and marble style tile floor. You will be surprised at how much work space and storage space there is, it is quite impressive. There is also access to the rear yard from the kitchen, great for grilling and outdoor dining!

Towards the rear of the house, you will find a large primary bedroom complete with recessed lighting (including reading lights), a built-in vanity area, laundry chute, and an amazing closet. Seriously, this closet is the stuff dreams are made of. You will love the cute Dutch style door and unbelievable amount of storage including plenty of room for hanging clothes, built-in shelving and drawers, and shoe racks.

The second bedroom is also very nicely sized with a closet and access to attic storage. Both bedrooms offer ceiling fans and boast lovely hardwood flooring. The bathroom is tastefully done and there is a hall linen closet.

Down below, accessed by a short flight of stairs off the kitchen, you will find a cozy family room and an exercise room or office. Be sure to take note of the unique stairs, the shiplap walls, ceiling beams, shelf behind the sofa, and all of the unique details that make this house so special. The unfinished space on this level is huge, offering tons of storage and the laundry area. Off of the family room, you will find a climate controlled workshop. This is the perfect place for projects and to store all your outdoor tools and toys. The workshop offers convenient access to the driveway. There is access to the yard from the family room, which is an ideal setup for entertaining. That said, whether you like to entertain or relax in peace and quiet, the outdoor living space checks all of the boxes.

The yard is totally fenced in and beautifully privatized by little gem magnolias and arborvitae which are evergreen, providing interest all year long. Off the kitchen, there are pavers and decking, offering great space to cook, dine, and lounge. My favorite spot is under the pergola, which features a sun shade, lighting, and a hop trellis (so get your home brew kit ready!). There is plenty of yard space for play, gardening, and more.

If that isn’t enough, a new roof was installed in 2020 and there are newer windows throughout. This charming property has been wonderfully maintained and is in absolute move in condition.

780 Central is located across the street from the Ardsley Community Center and a few blocks from Ardsley Park, a 10 acre park with baseball, softball, soccer, tennis court, lighted basketball, and a playground. Also, close by is the Ardsley Wildlife Sanctuary, an 81 acre natural area. The train station is a hop, skip, and a jump away and don’t forget about award winning Abington Schools and Copper Beech Elementary.

Ambler Borough Proposed Residential Resale Requirement

On April 30, 2021, the memorandum below was sent to Ambler Borough Council from Glenn Kucher, our Borough Code Enforcement Officer.  

Proposed Ambler Boro U&O

As a Borough Resident and Realtor who works primarily in the Borough, I found this memo to be very concerning. Admittedly, I had not been keeping current with the Ambler Borough Council meetings and minutes, so when I learned about this matter on June 1, 2021, I immediately reached out to all members of Council. I received a prompt reply from Borough Council President, Frank Deruosi, stating that “the inspection certificate is still in the developmental stages. Council has had some discussion regarding the pros and cons, as well as what aspects will be part of the inspection process. I trust that there will be a few more conversations before a decision is made, and ordinance is drafted, and a final vote is levied. You can email your comments/questions to me or any council member.”

The next (virtual) meeting was scheduled for June 15, 2021, which I could not attend, so I sent my questions and comments to Council in advance (detailed in the document below). You can view the June 15th meeting here, discussion on this topic is from 0.21:00 – 0.36:00. 

Ambler U&O Comments/Questions

I did not receive a reply from any member of Council, so I was eager to hear discussion on the topic at the next scheduled meeting, held on July 20th. The proposed requirement was not on the agenda, which I found curious, but I was able to ascertain during pubic comment that Council is not planning to have a draft ordinance available by the August or September meeting, as originally stated, as they are taking their time to carefully consider the details of the proposed requirement. Personally, I was very pleased to hear this, as I think this matter deserves much more discussion than I have heard, and input from the community.

As proposed, I find the inspection requirements to be incredibly onerous for the homeowner and completely out of line with what our neighboring municipalities require (or do not require, for that matter). If you also find this matter to be of import, now is the time to reach out to your Councilperson and make them aware of your thoughts and concerns. Contact information for all members of Council can be found here. If you’re not sure which ward you live in, you can view the ward map here.
