350 Euclid Avenue, Ambler

There are a handful of streets that rank among the most choice in the Borough of Ambler, and Euclid Avenue is unquestionably one of them. Euclid Avenue is a mere two blocks long, for local traffic only, and boasts beautiful turn of the century homes. It’s not uncommon to see a portion of the street framed by neon ‘Kid Alert’ figures allowing kids to ride bikes and play. There is also an annual Euclid Avenue block party. I’ve never attended, but it sounds pretty rocking from a few blocks away.

350 Euclid was built in 1910, and true to the era, it is a beautifully constructed, three story stone home, featuring a Victorian style two-story bay window. The home boasts spectacular details, such as stained glass, pocket doors, a beautiful turned staircase with ornate wood balusters and newel posts, original trim and molding, deep windowsills, original hardwood flooring, high ceilings, and solid wood five-panel doors. These timeless details would cost a fortune today, yet here they are, waiting for you to enjoy.

Welcoming you is a huge wrap around porch, a must for Ambler living. As you approach the porch, the stained glass rose window and ornate stonework that surrounds it will immediately catch your eye. The original front door is spectacular and opens into a spacious foyer with a view to the jaw dropping staircase. To your right, through a set of pocket doors is the living room. Through the living room is a den or study with a bay window that is connected to the dining room. The dining room also features a bay bump out with a built-in window seat. These rooms offer very high ceilings, tons of oversized windows, and the original hardwood floors (currently covered in the den). The kitchen is beyond the dining room and offers plenty of room for a table and chairs. The laundry is currently housed in the kitchen, but there is plenty of room to move that upstairs and use the first floor space for a powder room. Also, there is a large closet on the first floor offering plenty of room for coats, vacuums, and the like.

One of the highlights of the home is the absolutely gorgeous turned staircase showcasing 18 individual panes of stained glass that have been expertly restored, truly a work of art.

Upstairs, on the second floor, you will find three bedrooms, a bonus room, and a large bathroom with double vanity. The three bedrooms are nicely sized, most offer exposed hardwood flooring, and the back bedroom boasts the beautiful bay window. The bonus room is on the small side, and in my opinion, would make a perfect laundry room.

Up another flight of stairs, is the third floor, which offers two additional bedrooms, another bonus room, and a full bathroom. The angles from the roofline give the bedrooms a lovely shape and detail, without taking away precious headroom. With such an abundance of space and so many bedrooms on the second floor, the third floor would make a fabulous master suite. You could easily have a large bedroom, an incredible bathroom, and an enormous closet, plus room to spare!

Outside, there is a spacious deck off of the kitchen, perfect for grilling and entertaining. Like most homes in Ambler, the yard is not huge, but it is flat and offers great space to relax, play, and garden. The driveway offers parking for two cars and there is always plenty of street parking for guests.

While 350 Euclid offers incredible character and solid construction, the home needs work and updating. Central air and heaters (both on two zones) were in installed in April of 2010 and all of the windows have been replaced, but that said, 350 Euclid is for someone who has the ability and desire to put in the time and money that it needs.

350 Euclid is just blocks away from wonderful restaurants, breweries and shops, a movie theater AND playhouse, the library, a weekly farmers’ market, year round festivals and events, and the train to the city. Also of note, is sought after Wissahickon School District, located within the boundaries of Lower Gwynedd Elementary.

This is truly an incredible opportunity to own a very special home, yet be able to put your stamp on it. If you appreciate history, the detail and workmanship of the early 1900s, and this wonderful town of Ambler, don’t let this one slip away.

You will also appreciate the abundance of natural light throughout the home.

The moment you enter the home, you will see that 412 has been impeccably cared for.

From the sidewalk, you will fall in love with this fabulous bungalow that oozes curb appeal. Lovely landscaping surrounds the front porch, which spans the entire front of the home. The porch is accented by tapered columns set on a stone foundation and offers the perfect place to sit and watch the world go by. The custom front door is framed by attractive sidelights.

Inside, you are welcomed into a spacious foyer. This space was intentionally created, as the average bungalow does not offer an entrance that is distinctive from the living room. Straight ahead is a beautiful arched opening and to your left, you will find thoughtfully placed transom windows that carry the light. To your left is a bright living room featuring wainscoting, crown molding, and a wood burning fireplace with custom Craftsman tile accent. The living room flows beautifully into the dining room which is very spacious, ideal for large gatherings. The dining room features crown molding, chair rail, and the most charming window seat.

Through the kitchen is a light filled three season room that you will adore.

Back inside, still on the first floor, you will find a space that is very unique, as it offers a multitude of uses. Currently, the front room is used a den with an adjacent bar area, and full bathroom beyond that. This space is great for entertaining, but could also serve as a perfect playroom (just swap the wine for juice boxes!). Because this space has a beautiful pocket door for privacy, this could also serve as a first floor bedroom, complete with closet and spacious, full bathroom. Due to the wet bar and fridge, it could even work as an in-law suite. Really, the possibilities are endless.

Upstairs, you will find three bedrooms and a full bathroom. The middle bedroom is nicely sized and features a ceiling fan, built-in shelving, and a large wardrobe. The secondary bedrooms offer tons of closet space (be sure to look all the way back!). Both bedrooms are the same size, however, the room on the right had an additional closet added towards the front of the house that could easily be removed allowing for more living space. The hall bathroom has been nicely updated and offers dual sinks and plenty of storage.

Down below, the basement offers tons of storage space, the laundry area, and outside access.

Outside, you will fall in love with the yard. There are specimen trees including a Weeping Norway Spruce and Forest Pansy Redbud. There is a large paved area for dining and such, as well as a zen-like garden area. The entire yard is fenced, less the driveway, and there is a convenient two car garage, as well.

If the house and its incredible condition aren’t enough, the location is choice. Just blocks away are wonderful restaurants, breweries and shops, a movie theater AND playhouse, the library, a weekly farmers’ market, several festivals, and events year round, and the train to the city. Don’t wait too long, as this home will not last!

Showings will be available beginning on Saturday, June 1st. For more information or a private showing, contact me, Allison Wolf. allison.wolf@foxroach.com | 215-704-9888

Is your Ambler Borough home search leaving you frustrated and fruitless?

Currently, the home consists of two apartments with the layout described below, however, with some modifications, 309 Fairview would make a fantastic single family home. The first floor wouldn’t need to change much, the second floor could easily be three-four bedrooms, and the third floor could be converted into a lovely master suite.

259 Highland Avenue, Ambler

If I had to choose just a few words to describe 259 Highland Avenue, they would be custom, immaculate, quality, high-end, and meticulous. This stunning, turnkey home has been updated, has a fantastic flow, and offers great curb appeal.

When this home was purchased, it was an average, builder grade, newer construction home. The owners bought this house because they fell in love with the town and its walkability, and over time, they have transformed the home to meet their high standards. With no intention of moving, no expense was spared and every aspect of the $300k+ renovation was done with thoughtful consideration and refinement.

As you approach the home, you will fall in love with the curb appeal. You are greeted by a custom driveway with paver inlay and border, carriage style garage door, beautiful James Hardie shake style siding, and charming front porch.

Inside, you will be wowed by the gorgeous hardwood flooring and spacious rooms. You are welcomed by a lovely, sun-filled living room with bay alcove. To your left is the coat closet; note the automated light as you open the door. Beyond the living room, the hardwood flooring extends into the roomy dining room. You can access the kitchen through the living room and dining room, making this a fantastic space for entertaining.

The kitchen is the heart of the home, offering space for more than one cook and plenty of guests to gather. The handmade cabinetry was custom built by Dilworth and is absolutely stunning. There is an abundance of storage space including upper and lower cabinets, an oversized center island, coffee bar/workstation, and an incredible lighted pantry. The doors to the pantry, basement, and laundry/powder room are solid core, mission style doors that were carefully selected to match the cabinetry. The door with the frosted glass window leads to the laundry area, powder room, and interior access to the garage. Other impressive features in the kitchen include quartz countertops, undermount sink, stainless steel appliances, under cabinet lighting, “hidden” outlets so as not to interfere with the custom backsplash, RO system at the sink and fridge, and custom stained glass detail over the kitchen sink. The window over the sink looks into a spacious family room boasting a gas fireplace, skylights, and sliding glass door to a wonderful screened in porch.

Upstairs, the master bedroom is spacious and bright offering hardwood flooring, two custom closets, and a spa-like ensuite bath. The bathroom boasts plenty of storage in the custom made cabinets, quartz countertop, heated floor, and sizable walk-in shower complete with overhead rain style and handheld shower heads, as well as bench seating.

Two additional bedrooms with roomy closets and ceiling fans, spacious hall bath, and linen closet complete the second floor.

Down below, the basement offers tons of space, high ceilings, and endless possibilities. The basement has been dry during their entire ownership, even during the storms in 2011 when Ambler lost power for five days. The heating ducts are closed now, but present if one wanted to finish the space.

Now, getting back to that screened in porch… If you enjoy the outdoors, you are going to love the yard and outdoor space at 259. The screened in porch is the perfect place to enjoy your morning coffee and evening conversation. The porch features a ceiling fan and opens onto a deck, both constructed with no maintenance Trex decking. The deck steps down onto a paver patio with sidewalks connecting to the fence gates on either side of the house as well as the shed in the rear. The yard is fully fenced and totally private. Having an outdoor space this sweet in the borough is an absolute dream.

The flow of this home, inside and out, make it ideal for entertaining while offering a warm and comfortable feel. Be sure to note the thoughtful design elements like the beautiful Jeld-Wen doors throughout the interior, Pella exterior doors (front, slider, and storm doors), Marvin Infinity windows (all with custom wood blinds or cellular shades), James Hardie fiber cement siding (with additional insulation beneath), tankless hot water heater, water softener, and more. Even the small details have been thought of, for example, all of the vents covers, outlet and light switch covers coordinate with one another.

Located less than half a mile from downtown Ambler, this is an incredible opportunity. Walk, bike, or drive to fantastic restaurants, the theater, shopping and services, beautiful new grocery store, awesome annual festivals, the farmers’ market and more! With the train .5 mile away and the entrance to route 309 one mile in the other direction, the location is ideal for commuting.

Very rarely does a home like this become available in Ambler Borough, do not delay. For more information, or a private showing, please contact me, Allison Wolf. 215-704-9888 | allison.wolf@foxroach.com

314 Knight Road, Ambler

314 Knight is a wonderful house, with eye-catching curb appeal that you will notice as soon as you pull into the driveway. You are greeted by a charming front porch and inside, welcomed by a foyer with coat closet.

Outside, you will love the covered side porch with Trex decking that wraps around to a lovely 28×12 rear deck. At a 1/5 of an acre, the lot is a perfect size, not too much to take care of, but plenty of yard to enjoy. The lot goes all the way to Daniel Drive in the rear, which is great if you have little ones who would enjoy bike riding in the cul-de-sac, while you watch from the deck.

314 Knight Road has been very well maintained by the original owners. The home is move-in ready, however, some sweat equity would easily take this home to the next level. This is an excellent opportunity, as the major systems have been updated, allowing the next owner to do the ‘sexy’ projects. The roof, gutters, downspouts, exterior doors (steel and storm/screen), and garage door were all replaced in 2009. The gas furnace was replaced in 2004 and the central air conditioner in 2010. The electric panel was upgraded at that time, as well. The front porch was redone (roof, concrete decking, and walkways) and the side porch and Trex decking were constructed in 2014. New shutters and landscaping were done in 2015. All windows (with the exception of the basement ) were replaced by Springhouse Window and Door. The list goes on.

This is a fantastic location, just a 1/2 mile to Lower Gwynedd Elementary, Wissahickon Middle & High Schools, with sidewalks the entire way! The home is also a hop skip and a jump away from several local parks, the train, and all that downtown Ambler has to offer including fabulous restaurants, theater, shopping & services, awesome annual festivals, the farmers’ market, and more!

This home offers an excellent opportunity, do not delay your visit to this sweet home.

6191 W Mill Road, Flourtown

If turnkey is what you’re looking for, then look no further as 6191 W Mill Road is a lovely home in excellent condition and 100% move in ready. This expanded Cape offers a surprising amount of space including a living room, formal dining room, family room, kitchen and breakfast room on the first floor, 3 bedrooms, including a huge master suite on the second floor, and an incredible finished basement down below.

The location is ideal, and don’t let the Mill Road mailing address fool you, as this home fronts Grove Ave in a very sought after neighborhood adjacent to Fort Washington State Park. You’ll also love the convenience of living in Flourtown while benefiting from low Whitemarsh taxes and Colonial School District!

From the moment you pull up to 6191, you will appreciate the charming curb appeal and roomy driveway that accommodates at least four cars comfortably. Inside, you are greeted by a foyer with a coat closet and view into the spacious living room with gas fireplace. The living room offers access to both the kitchen and breakfast room.

The kitchen features the “ideal working triangle” and boasts plenty of storage in the form of custom cabinets (handmade to fit the space in the most ideal manner), newer stainless steel appliances, under cabinet lighting, a pantry, and the coveted window over the sink. Though the kitchen is a breakfast room that features a sliding glass door to the patio (perfect for access to the grill!) and entry to the garage, as well.

On the other side of the kitchen you will find the family room, which also features a slider to the rear yard and patio, a sizable formal dining room, and hall powder room. There is hardwood flooring throughout the first floor, with the exception of the kitchen and breakfast room, which are tiled. The house has a great flow and is ideal for entertaining, both indoors and outside. Also, the way that the rooms are laid out allow for a variety of options if one wanted to use the space differently.

As you make your way upstairs, you will be impressed by the beautiful turned staircase and roomy hallway that affords each bedroom its own private space. The master suite is cozy, despite its grand size. The bedroom itself is nicely sized and beyond that is a sitting/dressing area, walk-in closet, dual vanity and separate shower room where you will find a soaking tub, stall shower, and toilet. The master bedroom is carpeted for comfort, but there is hardwood flooring beneath if one desires.

There are two additional, nicely sized bedrooms, both with great closet space, a hall bath, and laundry that complete the second floor.

I would say that I’ve saved the best for last, but it is very hard to pick just one best thing about this house. That said, prepare to be wowed by the lower level. The basement offers over 600 square feet of finished living space, plus a large storage room. The main room consists of a large recreation space that flows into a dining area with a fantastic wet bar in the rear.

504 Trinity Place, Ambler

504 Trinity Place was built in 1910, and true to the era, it is a beautifully constructed, three story, Victorian stone home. The home boasts spectacular details, including a Victorian style turret, “gingerbread” roof cresting, two sets of gorgeous pocket doors, a beautiful turned staircase with original wood balusters and newel posts, original trim and molding including 5 inch baseboard, deep windowsills, hardwood floors, high ceilings, solid wood five panel doors, and more.

From the minute that you approach the home, you are sure to fall in love with the welcoming front porch. Inside, you are greeted by a beautiful front door complete with transom overhead and impressive foyer.

To your left, you will find the living room, which features pocket doors at each opening, as this room was originally used as a parlor. The room boasts several oversized windows with deep sills and hardwood flooring under the carpet.

Through the living room is the dining room with wainscoting and exposed hardwood flooring, which leads through to the kitchen.

The kitchen is bright and offers access to the back porch and rear yard, as well as the rear staircase and an additional interior room with large closet/pantry. The kitchen is fully functional, but if one were to renovate, the amount of space allows for many fantastic options.

Upstairs, on the second floor, you will find three bedrooms, however, there is a very large sitting room that could easily be configured into a fourth bedroom. The rooms are all very bright and offer a surprising amount of closet space for a home of this age. At the end of the hall, you will find a sizable full bathroom with charming built-ins, as well as, access to the rear stairs down to the kitchen and the staircase to the third floor.

The third floor is very special, boasting tons of light and heart warming spaces. There are two additional bedrooms, two sitting rooms, and a full bathroom on this floor. The bathroom on the third floor is functional, but needs to be renovated. With the amount of space in this home, the possibilities are endless. One could create a fantastic master suite and still have plenty of bedrooms, an office, a library, you name it.

Not only is a home this beautiful and historic hard to come by, but one that has central air and updated electric is almost impossible to find. The owners have lovingly taken great care to update and renovate many aspects of the home over the years, and while there is still some work left to do, it allows you to put your spin on the home and create your own special space.

Outside, the grounds are charming. The rear yard is fenced and private, yet a size that is easy to maintain.

The opportunity to purchase a home of this stature and quality, in sought after Upper Dublin School District, on an amazing street within walking distance to downtown Ambler, several parks, trails, and the train, does not come along very often. This is truly an incredible opportunity to own a very special home, yet be able to put your own personal stamp on it. If you appreciate the detail and workmanship of the early 1900’s, and the wonderful town of Ambler, don’t let this one slip away!
