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!

411 Haywood Road, Ambler

This coming August will mark 40 years that the owners of 411 Haywood Road have called this wonderful house their home. While they are sad to leave, the time has come for someone else to enjoy this very special little slice of heaven. You may feel apprehensive hearing that the home has been cared for by the same family for almost 40 years, thinking that they may not have made many changes over the years, but that is far from the case. 411 Haywood has not only been lovingly and meticulously maintained, but also thoughtfully updated. You will also be thrilled to see that the outdoor living space is just as fantastic as the indoor space, it is truly a private oasis.

If you are familiar with the homes in Haywood Park, then you will immediately recognize that this home is quite different from the other cape cod homes in the neighborhood. From the stone facade outside to the layout inside, this home is quite special. As you approach the home, you will notice the lovely trees and shrubs that provide privacy from the street. Once you pass through the natural screening, prepare to be amazed by the extensive perennial garden that awaits you on the other side. There a plethora of plantings, including phlox, iris, butterfly weed, lavender, bleeding heart, lily of the valley, bee balm, foxglove and so much more (plant list available). If you’re lucky, the peonies will be popping this weekend when you stop by. The retaining walls are constructed of locally quarried stone and are absolutely lovely.

Inside, you are welcomed into an open living room and dining room with hardwood flooring, gas fireplace with striking mantle, large bay window, and views into the kitchen and beyond to the rear deck. Through the dining room, you will find a nicely sized, eat-in kitchen offering plenty of cabinets, attractive Corian countertops, brand new stainless steel appliances, built-in breakfast nook, beautiful exposed brick wall, sliding glass door to the most amazing deck and a window over the sink. The layout of this home is ideal for entertaining, as the living room, dining room, kitchen, and outdoor space all flow together seamlessly. The natural light in this home is spectacular, pouring into each and every room, making it always feel like a sunny day.

The first floor also offers two nicely sized bedrooms (one of which is currently used as a den), beautifully updated bathroom with large linen closet, hall coat closet and access to the basement. This layout is extremely functional and ideal for those who may desire one floor living. Both bedrooms on the first floor feature brand new carpeting, but there is also hardwood flooring beneath, if that is your preference.

Heading upstairs to the second floor, you will see that new carpet was also installed on the stairs and on the second floor, but again, the original hardwood floors are below, if you choose to expose them. The second floor layout is very different from the other homes in the neighborhood, as it offers two spacious bedrooms and a full bathroom. Both bedrooms are roomy and incredibly bright, featuring skylights that enable wonderful air flow and the ability to view the stars from your bed at night (pinch me!). The master bedroom features custom cherry built-ins that are perfect for both storage and display, in addition to just being simply beautiful. You will also find a sizable walk-in closet, lovely views of the back yard and a hidden storage area, that can be accessed from a panel behind the bed. The secondary bedroom also offers nice closet space and lovely built-in shelving. The hall bath is very nicely updated, featuring a spa-like shower and beautiful tile work. A hall linen closet completes this floor.

Down below, you will be wowed by the basement. Not only is it huge, but it offers high ceilings and a full, at grade walk out to the rear of the home. The basement is currently used for storage, but could easily be finished, if one desires. If you were to finish the basement, you wouldn’t lack for storage space, as the attached garage is for one car width wise, but is about two car lengths, in terms of depth. 

I hate to say that I was saving the best for last, as every aspect of this house is wonderful, but what you will find in the rear of the home will likely surprise you. From the street, you would never imagine the paradise that exists beyond. On my first visit, I was utterly astounded. After visiting many homes in the neighborhood, I expected what they typically offer, a nice, straightforward backyard, but that is not the case at 411. Once you step out of the kitchen, onto the deck, you’re done for. To find this setting, in this location, is not going to be possible again. The deck is huge, allowing room for dining and relaxing, but heck, all I can see is a party (hint, hint, Wissahickon fireworks party! Yes, of course, I’ll come ;)). The deck was thoughtfully built with wrap around bench seating and privacy panels, that not only offer screening, but also a buffer from the elements. The views are spectacular, as the rear of the property is also beautifully landscaped. There are stairs from the deck to the ground level, where you will find a large, wrap around driveway with access to the garage, and beautiful yard. There are specimen trees and plantings, a sweet little bridge, and adorable potting shed, which doubles as a playhouse (or at least it did for this family). 

411 Haywood is in absolute move in condition. It has been wonderfully maintained and offers gas heat and central air, an oversized garage, tons of off-street parking, updated kitchen and bathrooms, new windows, hardwood flooring and so much more. If that isn’t enough, this home is located in a lovely neighborhood in Ambler Borough! That means that you are just blocks from all of the wonderful things that Ambler has to offer, including a true downtown, with fabulous restaurants, shops and services, soon to come cooperative grocery store, farmers’ market, annual festivals, easy access to the train station and so much more. Wissahickon School District is among the most sought after in the area, yet still offers incredibly reasonable taxes. There are several parks located a hop, skip and a jump away from 411; really you can’t get better than this. 

Showings begin on Friday, May 19th, be sure to put this on your list to see, as this is one home that you do not want to miss. For more information, or a private showing, please contact me, Allison Wolf. 215-704-9888 | allison.wolf@foxroach.com

421 Hoover Road, Ambler

421 Hoover Road is a lovely 3 bedroom, 2 bath home located in a quiet pocket of Lower Gwynedd Township, just two 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 couldn’t be more choice, nor could the home be any more adorable. This home has been well maintained and features a wonderful backyard oasis.

421 Hoover is warm and inviting and offers an abundance of natural light. Entering the home you will find a living room, which is open to the dining area and adjacent kitchen. All of the important rooms are essentially connected, enabling you to prepare meals in the kitchen and carry on conversation with loved ones at the table or relaxing in the living room. The kitchen offers gas cooking, the all important window over the sink and access to a large deck outside, perfect for summertime grilling. The first floor also offers a spacious family room, as well as a full bath. The full bathroom on the first floor is not only convenient, but offers the possibility of first floor living for you or guests who may visit who don’t care for traversing the stairs. 

Upstairs, the second floor offers three very nicely sized bedrooms and full bath. There is ample closet space, particularly in the bedroom to the left of the stairs, be sure to take a look.

Much of the carpet was just replaced, and to the great surprise of the current owner, there is hardwood flooring beneath! The carpet was already in motion so too late to make a change, but for a future owner who loves hardwood floors, they already exist in the living room, going up the stairs, and throughout the second floor. Brand new carpet with the option of hardwood, it’s a win/win! You will also be pleased to see that the windows have been replaced.

Down below, the basement offers excellent storage space, as well as, a laundry area.

Outside is the piece de resistance! The house sits back from the road, allowing for a nicely sized front yard, but the real magic is out back. You will absolutely love the deck that spans the entire length of the house, providing room for grilling, eating, and lounging. There are beautifully established trees and perennials, including a bed of raspberry bushes that yield two harvests per season. If you are a fellow bird nerd, you will continue what the current owners have created, your own private bird sanctuary. I could sit here all day and there would never be a dull moment. If you enjoy gardening, you’ll be pleased to see the sizable shed to house your tools and equipment. 

Wissahickon School District has become one of the most sought after in the region AND the taxes are incredible ($2,761/year!). The proximity to the train station and all major routes of transportation is a commuters dream. Action packed downtown Ambler is moments away; you could even walk there if you’d like. 421 Hoover Road is truly a great place to call home, come see for yourself!

Showings begin Saturday, May 13th. For more information, or a private showing, please contact me, Allison Wolf. 215-704-9888 | allison.wolf@foxroach.com

To the left, you’ll find a nice dining room with convenient access to the kitchen, as well. Straight ahead, you’ll be pleased to find a huge eat-in kitchen which is open to the family room. Everyone knows that whether it’s just the members of the household, or you’re entertaining, this is the spot where everyone gathers. It is so nice to be able to work in the kitchen and have a connection to those watching television or playing games in the family room. The family room is also spacious and features a wood burning fireplace and sliding glass door that leads to the rear patio and yard. The kitchen offers a wrap around counter with plenty of work space, double sink, tons of cabinetry for storage, in addition to a pantry, and eating area. Through the kitchen, you will find access to the garage, and a laundry room with access to the rear yard and an out of the way powder room. Hardwood flooring connects the foyer, family room, and kitchen.

As you make your way upstairs, you will notice the newly installed carpet that extends throughout the entire second floor. Upstairs, to your right, you will find the master suite. You are sure to love this space, as the room itself is very spacious and offers two walk-in closets and a full ensuite bath. You will also find two nicely sized additional bedrooms and a large, updated, hall bath on the second floor.

Down below in the basement, there is a ton of extra space. You will find one room that is mostly finished, with drywall and climate control, while the rest of the basement is unfinished, offering high ceilings and great storage space.

The outdoor space at 324 is just as wonderful as the inside space! At about a quarter of an acre, the lot is a perfect size, not too much to take care of, but enough space to offer privacy and a wonderful yard to enjoy. There is a sizable shed in the corner of the yard that is in excellent condition and offers plenty of space for a lawn mower, gardening tools and the like. However, if you have kids, good luck convincing them that this isn’t a perfect little playhouse and hideout. That said, you could easily be convinced, as the two car garage is oversized and affords space for two cars, as well as all of your lawn equipment, bikes and even lawn furniture during the offseason.

The cul-de-sac location is ideal as is the proximity to several local parks, the train, and all that downtown Ambler has to offer. You can walk, bike, skate, you name it, to fabulous restaurants, the Ambler Theater, shopping and services, awesome annual festivals, the farmers’ market and more! This home is what you’ve been waiting for, but I wouldn’t wait too long to see it!
