366 Forest Avenue, Ambler

366 Forest Avenue is a beautifully constructed, three story Colonial home, built in 1912, boasting spectacular architectural details. There is so much to love about this house; the fantastic location, tons of curb appeal, the swoon worthy wrap around porch, exquisite woodwork throughout, high ceilings, and oversized windows bringing in an abundance of natural light. These fantastic features are coupled with modern amenities such central air conditioning, high efficiency gas heater, an updated kitchen, and a first floor laundry room. 366 offers the perfect blend of old world charm while catering to a contemporary lifestyle.

Upon arrival, you will be impressed as the exterior of this home immediately  signals how well it has been maintained. 366 has a stately appearance, boasting a wide staircase, beautiful columns sitting atop stone pillars, and front porch to die for. This spectacular wrap around porch offers outdoor living space at it’s finest. There is plenty of room for furniture and enjoyment, as well as access to the rear yard. A front porch is a must for Ambler living, and this one is the cream of the crop.

Inside, you will find a lovely place to welcome your loved ones and guests. The foyer is absolutely beautiful and offers views where intricate millwork abounds. You will appreciate the gorgeous newel posts and balusters, turned staircase with landing, columns, solid wood five panel doors, baseboards, moulding, and trim. This original woodwork is made of solid Chestnut, which cannot be duplicated today, and is in excellent condition. The front door features a transom and sidelight, bringing additional light into the foyer. The original hardwood flooring is in fantastic shape and carries through into the living and dining rooms. The foyer offers two access points into the kitchen, one over the landing on the staircase and one straight ahead, as well as entrance into the living room, on your right.

The living room is spacious, yet cozy, and opens into the dining room. There are French doors between these two rooms for times that you desire some separation. Ideal for after dinner, providing a buffer for the adults to relax and converse, while keeping an eye on the little ones in the other room. The dining room is quite sizable, easily accommodating a large table, perfect for large gatherings. This room boasts tons of natural light, featuring views into the rear yard and large bay window bump out.

Through the dining room, you will find a spectacular custom kitchen. This kitchen was thoughtfully designed, using quality materials including custom cherry cabinetry, granite countertops, and stainless steel appliances. There is ample counter space, a great workflow, and tons of storage. My absolute favorite part of the kitchen is the original pantry cabinet that was seamlessly integrated into the updated design. The exterior of this special piece was carefully restored while the interior was renovated by Superior Woodcraft (out of Doylestown) to now offer soft close drawers and improved organization; a beautiful walnut countertop completes the package. This timeless piece marries perfectly with the renovation, showing respect and a heartwarming ode to the era.

Through the kitchen, you will find a conveniently located laundry area, powder room, and separate mudroom, which offers access to the rear patio and yard.

Upstairs on the second floor, you will find 4 bedrooms and a tasteful hall bathroom. Two of the bedrooms are currently carpeted, but there is original hardwood flooring beneath.

Down the hall, you will find another staircase that takes you to the third floor. This floor offers a fifth bedroom and sitting room. There are a multitude of uses for this space; it would make a great office, home school area, craft room, studio, you name it. The angles from the roofline give the these rooms a lovely shape and detail.

Down below, the basement offers tons of clean and accessible storage space.

Outside, the grounds are just charming. There is a patio off of the mudroom offering room for a grill and outdoor seating. The patio overlooks a sweet rear yard where you will find thoughtfully planted perennial gardens and an open grassy area with plenty of room for play and relaxation. The driveway offers parking for several cars and there is a convenient, detached two car garage, as well.

366 Forest has been well loved and well cared for and is now ready to make a new owner very happy. This special home is located on a lovely street within walking distance to downtown Ambler. Fabulous restaurants and breweries, great shops, a movie theater AND playhouse, library, a seasonal farmers market, year-round festivals, and the best grocery store around are all just a hop skip and a jump away. If you commute, the train is also within walking distance and access to 309 and major routes of transportation are minutes away. Sought after Wissahickon School District (Lower Gwynedd Elementary) is the icing on the cake!

This is an incredible opportunity to own a very special home in a very special town. If you appreciate the detail and workmanship of the early 1900s and the town of Ambler, do not let this one slip away.

2429 Linden Drive, Havertown

Welcome to 2429 Linden Drive, a charming and updated Tudor home, located in the highly desirable Merwood Park section of Havertown. You will love the tree-lined street and be head over heels with this home’s curb appeal. The exterior has been meticulously maintained and the gardens are an absolute dream.

Inside the front door, you are welcomed into a sweet vestibule with space to drop your mail, take off your shoes, and hang up your coat. Through the interior door you will find a warm and spacious living room where architectural details abound. The focal point of this comfy room is the wood burning fireplace with beautiful Wissahickon Schist surround and slate hearth. To the right of the fireplace, natural light pours in from the box bay window. To the left of the fireplace, there is a glass door that leads to the swoon worthy screened porch. The hardwood flooring is original and in great shape, offering lovely walnut inlay detail in both the living and dining rooms.

The living room opens into an oversized dining room. Oversized, because 2429 Linden Drive was the original model home when the neighborhood was built, so you will find that several rooms were bumped out and are a little larger than neighboring homes of the same style. The dining room comfortably offers plenty of space for a large table and additional furniture. The bay window bump out is a highlight, but the other two windows are also oozing with character.

Through the dining room you will find a well designed kitchen, offering the ideal “working triangle” for the chef of the house. The kitchen offers hardwood flooring, soapstone perimeter countertops, and stainless steel countertops surrounding the cooktop. The wall oven, refrigerator, and dishwasher are all stainless steel. The storage is endless, including a great pantry cabinet. The expanded kitchen includes a fantastic breakfast nook with built-in banquette seating under the bay window, and sliders to the larger than life deck. The light in this space is lovely, making it the perfect spot to greet the day. The kitchen also offers access to the basement and the side garden door.

Traveling upstairs to the second floor, you will appreciate the jetty on the landing of the turned staircase. This little detail is one of the many that make this house so special. The second floor has been reconfigured to better accommodate modern living, allowing for a spectacular owner’s suite. This space is truly a respite, one that you will look forward to retiring into at the end of the day. The bedroom itself is nicely sized, offers pleasing natural light, and features a thoughtfully designed enfilade, creating beautiful sight lines and an ideal connection to the professionally designed walkthrough closet and into the private ensuite bath. Of course, there are pocket doors for when privacy is desired. The ensuite bath offers a large shower with rain head, multiple body sprays, and handheld shower head. There is a separate vanity area with backlit mirror, recessed toilet area, and built-in speakers.

This floor also offers a second bedroom, a second full hall bath, linen closet, hardwood flooring, and gorgeous custom solid hardwood doors throughout. Up another flight of stairs, the third floor offers another bedroom and full bath, providing endless possibilities.

Down below, the basement is fully finished, boasting an additional 500(ish) square feet of living space, a powder room, laundry area, storage, and access to an unbelievable attached two car garage. It is essentially impossible to find a home of this age and character with an attached garage, let alone one this impressive. At 425 square feet, there is plenty of room to park two cars and still have space left over for storage and/or a shop area. There is a built-in Gladiator storage system including cabinets that will remain, a double sided utility sink, and new insulated electric garage doors. Outside the garage is a private driveway that will accommodate parking for at least two cars, another rarity for this neighborhood.

You will be pleased to see that the outdoor space lives up to the rest of the house. Meticulously landscaped, the yard is lush, private, and fully fenced, offering specimen trees and perennial gardens. There is a 24’ x 24’ deck off of the kitchen, an ideal place for outdoor dining and a fire pit. The screened porch is set deep into the yard, privatized by the landscape, and perfect for quieter times. Better yet, a rain storm. On a cool night, let’s just call this a sleeping porch. The porch opens onto a newly installed slate patio overlooking the yard.

The owners are being called out west, otherwise, they would never leave the beautiful home that they created. All of the renovations and restorations were done with a view to stay for a long time, which is a huge benefit to the lucky new owner. All three full bathrooms have been renovated, the heating fuel was converted to gas when the new boiler and hot water heater were installed, a combination of central air and split systems were installed to most effectively and efficiently cool the home, the interior of the firebox and chimney (inside and out) has been restored, a historical plaster artist restored all interior walls, the radiators have been refinished, porch screens refinished, and the list goes on, and on. The location is fantastic, in the heart of Merwood Park, down the street from the park, walkable to restaurants, public transportation, easy access to downtown Ardmore and the city, and award winning Haverford School District.

This is a very special home, one that you will be delighted to call your own. For more information or a private tour, please contact me, Allison Wolf. 215-704-9888 | allison.wolf@foxroach.com

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

405 Tennis Avenue, Ambler

405 Tennis Avenue is a wonderful, well cared for home that offers a great layout, tons of natural light, and an amazing back yard, in sought after Ambler Borough and Wissahickon School District.

As you approach the house, you will be impressed by the lovely stone front, new siding, and attractive landscaping. Once inside, you will be wowed by the open feel and abundance of natural light. The living room is spacious, offering a large picture window and a huge coat/storage closet. The living room is open to the dining room, allowing great connectivity, ideal for entertaining. Both rooms offer hardwood flooring. Through the dining room, you will find the kitchen that offers gas cooking, stainless steel appliances, and a window over the sink that looks into the back yard.

Upstairs, there are three nicely sized bedrooms with ample closet space (two closets in the master bedroom), a full bathroom, and a hall linen closet. Although the second floor is carpeted, there is hardwood flooring beneath. Be sure to take note of the walk-up attic which boasts tons of easy to access storage space.

Downstairs, the lower level features a sizable family room. It is not easy to find a home in Ambler that offers a separate living room and family room, and what a luxury it is to have two differently defined spaces. You will find access to a crawlspace from this room which offers additional, plentiful storage. There is also access to the attached oversized one car garage from this room.

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. There is a raised bed for gardening, a shed for storage, and a sandbox for fun, and a view of the Kiwanis Fireworks in July!

405 Tennis also features a newer roof, siding, and gutters (2017), gas heat, central air conditioning, off-street parking for three cars, plus the garage, and more.

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!

Outside, you will love the rear patio and fenced-in yard. The yard is a perfect size, not too much to take care of, but plenty of space for gardening and entertaining.

The location is a dream, just a 1/2 mile to Lower Gwynedd Elementary, Wissahickon Middle, and High Schools, with sidewalks the entire way! The bus stop is just around the corner and can be seen from the backyard. The home backs up to Riccardi Park which offers a playground, tennis and pickleball courts, a walking trail, and an open field. Ambler Borough Park, a natural, dog-friendly, park with a creek is two blocks away. Downtown Ambler is a hop, skip, and a jump away offering fabulous restaurants, breweries, shops, theater AND playhouse, annual festivals, seasonal farmers’ market, Weaver’s Way grocery store, and more! Commuting is a breeze with the ability to walk/bike to the train station or hop in your car and be on route 309 in minutes. 

The home is move-in ready, however, some sweat equity will easily take this home to the next level. This is an excellent opportunity, plan to see 208 Grist Mill Court today and come, live the good life in Ambler!
