502 Trinity Place, Ambler

502 Trinity Place is a beautifully constructed three story stone home, located on a very quaint and quiet street in the Ambler section of Upper Dublin. The home was built in 1905, and true to the era, it boasts spectacular details, including period trim and molding, a beautiful turned staircase with original wood balusters and newel posts, deep windowsills, window seats, beautiful hardwood floors, 9 foot ceilings, solid wood five panel doors, and more. This meticulous home offers the perfect balance of old world charm and modern amenities; prepare to be impressed.

From the moment you arrive, you will be charmed by the curb appeal and show stopping front porch. The mahogany wrap around porch has been carefully restored to include new columns and railings, although you’d never know, as they are an exact match to the original. The porch is expansive and offers plenty of room to relax and enjoy watching the thoughtful landscape come to life. The front door is just as lovely, featuring a custom mahogany storm door and transom above.

Inside, the foyer will take your breath away. Light streams in from three windows perched above lovely built-in bench seating (custom cushions not photographed), the perfect place to reflect or enjoy a good book. The view of the staircase is spectacular and you will be pleased to see that the gorgeous wood floors greeting you in the foyer carry throughout most of the home.

The living room is located off the foyer, boasting four oversized windows and a very comfortable place to relax. Off the living room, you will find a sizable dining room that can easily accommodate large gatherings. The bright eat-in kitchen features a tray ceiling with ceiling fan, granite countertops, exposed brick detail, and beautiful windows that look into the rear yard. The kitchen offers access to a sweet screened in porch with stairs down to the yard. A conveniently tucked away full bathroom and large coat closet completes the first floor.

Upstairs, on the second floor, you will find three bedrooms, however, one is currently being used as a dressing room for the master bedroom. Additional closets were added to this room, although the match is so perfect, you would think that they were original to the house. The closets that were added (in this room and others) were designed by an architect with a very keen eye who cleverly designed the closet shape to echo the window sills. The bright bathroom was very thoughtfully renovated and includes a beautiful stall shower with bench and a soaking tub. In lieu of window treatments, custom Pella windows were designed, employing Frank Lloyd Wright templates to provide privacy without blocking natural light. The laundry are is conveniently located on the second floor along with a hall linen closet.

The third floor also offers three bedrooms, a full bathroom, and a study. When the third floor served as a separate unit, the study was a kitchenette and the plumbing remains in tact, should a future owner choose to create an au pair suite, add another laundry area, etc.

I cannot say enough about the natural light in this home, it is truly abundant and fills one with joy. There are ceiling fans in most rooms and recessed lighting throughout much of the house.

Down below, the basement is huge, offering tons of room for storage, a workshop, you name it. The basement can be accessed from the kitchen or from the rear yard. You will be pleased to know that this home has central air and a newer high efficiency gas furnace, as well as an 8000 Watt generator, as an emergency power backup system.

Outside, the grounds are lovely. The rear yard is fenced and private, offering  plenty of room for gardening, relaxation, and play.

The owner has taken great care to update and renovate many aspects of the home over the years, far too much to include in this limited space. The home speaks for itself, but please be sure to review the available list of improvements. A home of this stature and quality, on an amazing street within walking distance to downtown Ambler, several parks, the Green Ribbon trail, and the train, does not come along very often. This is truly an incredible opportunity to own a very special home, do not delay.

314 Docs Court, Ambler

314 Docs Court is a rare find in Ambler Borough. Built in 1987, this home is practically new construction by Ambler standards, and the younger age affords the open floor plan that many are looking for. Not only does this home boast a lovely flow and over 1,900 square feet, it is located on a sidewalk lined cul-de-sac, just a few blocks from downtown Ambler! 314 Docs is updated, in mint condition, and 100% move in ready.

As you pull up, you will notice the spacious driveway offering room for several cars. When the snow melts and the warm weather arrives, you will be pleased to find a perfectly manicured yard with flowing trees and shrubs. The walkway leads to a covered entrance, featuring a nice spot to sit and relax.

Inside, you are welcomed into a foyer featuring beautiful “hardwood style” tile and a coat closet. This stunning tile runs throughout the first floor and is even heated in the foyer, hallway, and kitchen. A welcome treat this time of year! To your right is the formal living room, which is very nicely sized and offers an oversized bay window that brings in tons of natural light. The dining room offers a lovely place for more formal dinners and convenient access to the kitchen.

You will love the huge eat-in kitchen which offers granite countertops, imported Italian tile backsplash, stainless steel appliances, plenty of cabinet space AND a large pantry, the ideal working triangle (between the sink, range, and fridge), and even a window over the sink. There is room for less formal dining in the kitchen, and best of all, this beautiful space opens up into the family room. The connection between these two rooms is so important, as this is always where everyone gathers. It is great to be able to work in the kitchen and have a connection to those lounging in the family room on an average night, let alone when you have guests and are entertaining.

The family room is oversized, offering space for a large sectional, additional seating, and a play area. Light pours in from the sliding glass door, where you will find access to a lovely patio and yard. There is a powder room conveniently located off the family room, as well as, a well designed laundry room. Through the laundry room, you will access to the 1/4 garage. Certainly not room for a car (which is why you can enjoy such a fabulously sized family room), but a great space for a lawnmower, bikes, tools, and the like. The entire first floor boasts crown molding and recessed lighting.

Upstairs, you will find a spacious master suite which offers an ensuite bath, and dual closets. Two additional, nicely sized bedrooms and a roomy hall bath with linen closet round out the second floor. Both bathrooms have been renovated, all you need to bring is your toothbrush.

Down below, the basement is finished and offers great space for entertaining, working out, or maybe watching a game? Going out on a limb, but I think one or two Eagles games may have been watched down here over the years? In addition to the finished room, there is tons of easy to access storage in the crawl space.

The lot is a great size, not too much to take care of, but enough room to offer a wonderful outdoor living space and yard to enjoy. Unfortunately the snow will make it tough to appreciate, but out back there is a large patio providing plenty of space for lounging, dining, and grilling, as well as a lovely yard. The entire back is fenced in, with gates on either side of the house.

314 Docs has been well loved and very well maintained over the years. Important features include newer bathrooms, kitchen updates, new flooring, the roof, siding, shutters, all windows, and exterior doors were replaced in 2018, and the list goes on.

The cul-de-sac location is choice as is the proximity to several local parks, the train, and all that downtown Ambler has to offer including fabulous restaurants and breweries, a movie theater and a playhouse, great boutique shopping and personal services, awesome annual festivals, a seasonal farmers’ market, and more! On top of all of that, this home is located within Wissahickon School District, within the bounds of Lower Gwynedd Elementary.

This home is what you’ve been waiting for, make plans to see it ASAP, as it will not last! For more information or a private showing, please contact me, Allison Wolf. 215-704-9888 | allison.wolf@foxroach.com

Upstairs, the bountiful natural light continues and you will find three nicely sized bedrooms and a hall bathroom. The master bedroom offers two closets and hardwood flooring. The other two bedrooms are carpeted, but there is original hardwood flooring beneath. All three bedrooms offer multiple windows and ceiling fans. The hall bathroom was recently renovated offering tasteful white and natural wood tones. Through the front bedroom you will find a staircase that leads to the finished third floor. This floor offers one large room that currently serves as a home office, but could easily be a workout area, play room, or just additional storage. A mini-split system offers heating and cooling for the third floor, creating its own zone, separate from the rest of the house.

Down below, the basement is accessed from the kitchen and also has a side door for exterior access. The front room is finished offering great additional living space. In the rear, there is a separate unfinished area allowing for plenty of storage. 

The outdoor space at 322 is so sweet, you will undoubtedly begin to envision enjoying it in warmer months. There is a travertine patio off of the house, the fenced yard is a perfect size and has a lovely sense of privacy, particularly when the specimen trees and perennial plantings begin to fill in. To top it off, there is a one car detached garage with automatic door and overhead storage.

322 is within walking distance to downtown Ambler offering 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. Also, access to the Wissahickon Watershed and Green Ribbon Trail is just a few blocks away. If you commute, the train is also within walking distance, and access to 309 and major routes of transportation are minutes away. If that isn’t enough, this home is located in sought after Wissahickon School District!

This is your opportunity to own a wonderful home in a wonderful town, don’t delay! For more information or to schedule a private showing, please contact me, Allison Wolf. 215-704-9888 | allison.wolf@foxroach.com
