157 Edgewood Drive, Ambler

If you love nature and long for a private retreat to call home, yet still want to be within walking distance of a bustling downtown and the train to the city, look no further than 157 Edgewood Drive. This home is hands down, one of the most unique within Ambler Borough. Offering a peaceful, wooded setting, 157 sits on more than a half an acre of land, three times the average borough lot size. The property is located at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac with absolutely no through traffic, next to 9 acres of natural preserved park land. The home was custom built in 1965 for the previous owner and boasts distinctive details with a nod to Swiss heritage. The woodwork is exquisite, from the hand carved mahogany doors to the elaborate tracery between the foyer and living room and the coffered ceiling in the breakfast room. In addition to custom woodwork, you will find intricately carved bronze and iron work and sculptural elements throughout.

As you approach 157, you know that you are in for a treat. The hand laid brick path meanders through lush greenery and leads you to a front door that transports you to the 16th-century with its hand forged iron hinge straps, door handle, and knocker. Inside, you will find a bright foyer where the attention to detail continues. To your right is an intricately carved wood relief that houses a security system and key storage. To your left you will find a beautifully adorned door which opens to a well organized coat closet.

Further down on your right you will be wowed by the wood tracery that separates the foyer from the living room, creating a bit of privacy while bringing in natural light. The living room is a cozy space featuring solid wood built-in cabinetry with a pass through and a gorgeous swinging door that leads into the kitchen. There is hardwood flooring in both the foyer and living room.

On the other side of the living room, you will find the kitchen which offers plenty of storage space and the ideal “working triangle”, as well as a the important window over the sink. There is a second pass through from the kitchen into the breakfast room on the opposite side. 

The breakfast room also transports you to another time; from the coffered ceiling, wood paneled walls, custom built-ins, and flooring, you are surrounded by rich wood. There is a curved built-in banquette for seating and even a secret access panel in the coffered ceiling. 

On the other side of the kitchen you will delight in the huge laundry/mudroom. This room is also attached to the garage and is the perfect place to organize those items that never seem to have a home, like backpacks, cleaning supplies, etc. This room also offers a double sided ceramic utility sink, built-in shelving, and cabinetry.

Down a short flight of stairs you will find an enormous family room offering plenty of room for separate dining and lounging areas, if you so choose. The focal point of this room is the wood burning fireplace with incredible high relief sculptural detail surrounded by decorative half-timbered design. Other impressive details include the hand laid brick floor, beamed ceiling, beautiful wall of built-in cabinetry, arched opening with statue, and French doors leading to the patio and yard.

Off of the family room is the 4th bedroom, which would also make an ideal home office or playroom. On this level, you will also find access to the utility and storage room, as well as the all important wine cellar.

Upstairs, you will again be impressed by the master bedroom, which is grand in scale and boasts a vaulted ceiling. French doors open onto a private balcony overlooking the verdant grounds. The master bedroom also features an ensuite bathroom accessed through a large walk-through closet. Two additional bedrooms, a beautifully updated hall bathroom, and dual linen closets complete this level.

Outside, the grounds are absolutely beautiful, boasting established trees, thoughtfully planted perennials, copious ferns, charming paths, a paver patio attached to the house, and a separate flagstone patio that is waiting to become a fabulous outdoor kitchen and entertainment area. This is truly an oasis.

The attached two car garage is another huge bonus and a rare find in Ambler. The driveway offers plenty of room for parking, as does the typically empty cul-de-sac. The cul-de-sac also offers entry into the park. Ambler Borough park is a mostly natural park that hugs Rose Valley Creek, but also offers a small playground area.

This special home was featured in The Philadelphia Sunday Bulletin in 1971 as “From Europe to Ambler with Love”, a copy of which is available for viewing at the home.

This incredible home is located in an amazing location 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 yet another huge bonus!

A home like this doesn’t come along often, if ever, in the borough. 157 Edgewood presents an extremely rare opportunity, don’t regret not taking advantage of it while you can! For more information or a private showing, please contact me, Allison Wolf. 215-704-9888 | allison.wolf@foxroach.com

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.

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.

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!
