400 Hoover Road, Lower Gwynedd

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. They added to the square footage almost immediately by creating a fantastic family room off of the kitchen. They are sad to leave their home, the neighborhood, and the fabulous restaurants in downtown Ambler, but their unexpected change is a fantastic opportunity for you.

400 Hoover Road is a cape cod style home, located in a quiet pocket of Lower Gwynedd Township, just 2 blocks from Lower Gwynedd Elementary, Wissahickon Middle, and High Schools. If you travel two blocks in the opposite direction, you will find a large park, walking trails, and the train station. The location is fantastic and the home is adorable, offering a beautifully renovated kitchen, hardwood flooring, two full baths, central air, a garage, and a fenced yard.

Entering the home you will find a living room off to your right, featuring a wood-burning fireplace, large picture window, and beautiful hardwood floors. The hardwood continues through the first floor and into the adjacent formal dining room. The dining room is open to the kitchen, making for a great flow, particularly when entertaining.

The kitchen is a show stopper with beautiful cabinetry offering tons of storage, granite countertops and custom butcher block countertop, subway tile backsplash, undermount sink, stainless steel dishwasher, spectacular commercial gas range and hood, Terrazzo flooring, and recessed lighting.

Through the kitchen, you will find a spacious family room boasting its own zone for heating and air conditioning, recessed lighting, and abundant natural light. This room has an interior door that you can use to close it off from the rest of the house, which the current owners felt was a must-have with a newborn napping upstairs. A first-floor bedroom and full bathroom round out the first floor.

Upstairs, the second floor offers two nicely sized bedrooms boasting all of the character that a cape style home affords. The hall bath has been nicely updated and offers a built-in storage area. There is ample closet space and additional storage in the eaves.

Outside there is plenty of yard to enjoy and raised beds ready for your vegetable garden. The most private section of the yard is fully fenced, great for little ones and four-legged friends. The garage is quite spacious and there is a shed for additional storage, as well.

Wissahickon Schools, within the boundaries of Lower Gwynedd Elementary, incredible taxes, and the proximity to the train and major routes of transportation make this a commuters dream. The wonderful restaurants, breweries, shops, and entertainment found in downtown Ambler are just a mile away. Ambler Yards featuring ‘Feine Coffee, a weekly farmers’ market, pop-up beer gardens, and more is just three blocks away. 400 Hoover Road is truly a great place to call home, come see for yourself!

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

Relocation for work has the current owners of 229 Highland Avenue very sad; sad to leave their home that they love and sad to leave the wonderful town of Ambler.

As you approach the house, you will be charmed by the sweet front patio surrounded by a beautiful Japanese Maple and hearty hydrangea. Once inside, you will be wowed by the open space and sightline from the living room all the way into the kitchen.

Upstairs you will find three nicely sized bedrooms with ample closet space, a full, recently renovated, bathroom, and access to convenient attic storage.

Downstairs, the lower level features a fabulous family room. This room is huge and was designed with entertaining in mind as it features a bar, complete with built-in beverage fridge, and surround sound. Extra measures were taken to soundproof this space, so you can play the Eagles game as loud as you want and not disturb those who may be sleeping upstairs. You will also find access to a crawlspace from this room which offers plentiful storage. 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.

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!
