If you like to cook, you will appreciate the flow and order of the perfect working triangle between the sink, range, and refrigerator. Chef’s will also appreciate the gas cooking and pot filler (I know you’ve always wanted one). You will also love the stainless steel appliances, quartz countertops, stainless steel farm style sink with a window above, boasting a deep marble sill, the perfect spot for your indoor herb garden.

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 | [email protected]

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 | [email protected]

2429 Linden Drive, Havertown

Welcome to 2429 Linden Drive, a charming and updated Tudor home, located in the highly desirable Merwood Park section of Havertown. You will love the tree-lined street and be head over heels with this home’s curb appeal. The exterior has been meticulously maintained and the gardens are an absolute dream.

Inside the front door, you are welcomed into a sweet vestibule with space to drop your mail, take off your shoes, and hang up your coat. Through the interior door you will find a warm and spacious living room where architectural details abound. The focal point of this comfy room is the wood burning fireplace with beautiful Wissahickon Schist surround and slate hearth. To the right of the fireplace, natural light pours in from the box bay window. To the left of the fireplace, there is a glass door that leads to the swoon worthy screened porch. The hardwood flooring is original and in great shape, offering lovely walnut inlay detail in both the living and dining rooms.

The living room opens into an oversized dining room. Oversized, because 2429 Linden Drive was the original model home when the neighborhood was built, so you will find that several rooms were bumped out and are a little larger than neighboring homes of the same style. The dining room comfortably offers plenty of space for a large table and additional furniture. The bay window bump out is a highlight, but the other two windows are also oozing with character.

Through the dining room you will find a well designed kitchen, offering the ideal “working triangle” for the chef of the house. The kitchen offers hardwood flooring, soapstone perimeter countertops, and stainless steel countertops surrounding the cooktop. The wall oven, refrigerator, and dishwasher are all stainless steel. The storage is endless, including a great pantry cabinet. The expanded kitchen includes a fantastic breakfast nook with built-in banquette seating under the bay window, and sliders to the larger than life deck. The light in this space is lovely, making it the perfect spot to greet the day. The kitchen also offers access to the basement and the side garden door.

Traveling upstairs to the second floor, you will appreciate the jetty on the landing of the turned staircase. This little detail is one of the many that make this house so special. The second floor has been reconfigured to better accommodate modern living, allowing for a spectacular owner’s suite. This space is truly a respite, one that you will look forward to retiring into at the end of the day. The bedroom itself is nicely sized, offers pleasing natural light, and features a thoughtfully designed enfilade, creating beautiful sight lines and an ideal connection to the professionally designed walkthrough closet and into the private ensuite bath. Of course, there are pocket doors for when privacy is desired. The ensuite bath offers a large shower with rain head, multiple body sprays, and handheld shower head. There is a separate vanity area with backlit mirror, recessed toilet area, and built-in speakers.

This floor also offers a second bedroom, a second full hall bath, linen closet, hardwood flooring, and gorgeous custom solid hardwood doors throughout. Up another flight of stairs, the third floor offers another bedroom and full bath, providing endless possibilities.

Down below, the basement is fully finished, boasting an additional 500(ish) square feet of living space, a powder room, laundry area, storage, and access to an unbelievable attached two car garage. It is essentially impossible to find a home of this age and character with an attached garage, let alone one this impressive. At 425 square feet, there is plenty of room to park two cars and still have space left over for storage and/or a shop area. There is a built-in Gladiator storage system including cabinets that will remain, a double sided utility sink, and new insulated electric garage doors. Outside the garage is a private driveway that will accommodate parking for at least two cars, another rarity for this neighborhood.

You will be pleased to see that the outdoor space lives up to the rest of the house. Meticulously landscaped, the yard is lush, private, and fully fenced, offering specimen trees and perennial gardens. There is a 24’ x 24’ deck off of the kitchen, an ideal place for outdoor dining and a fire pit. The screened porch is set deep into the yard, privatized by the landscape, and perfect for quieter times. Better yet, a rain storm. On a cool night, let’s just call this a sleeping porch. The porch opens onto a newly installed slate patio overlooking the yard.

The owners are being called out west, otherwise, they would never leave the beautiful home that they created. All of the renovations and restorations were done with a view to stay for a long time, which is a huge benefit to the lucky new owner. All three full bathrooms have been renovated, the heating fuel was converted to gas when the new boiler and hot water heater were installed, a combination of central air and split systems were installed to most effectively and efficiently cool the home, the interior of the firebox and chimney (inside and out) has been restored, a historical plaster artist restored all interior walls, the radiators have been refinished, porch screens refinished, and the list goes on, and on. The location is fantastic, in the heart of Merwood Park, down the street from the park, walkable to restaurants, public transportation, easy access to downtown Ardmore and the city, and award winning Haverford School District.

This is a very special home, one that you will be delighted to call your own. For more information or a private tour, please contact me, Allison Wolf. 215-704-9888 | [email protected]

Glass sliders lead from the sunroom to a wonderfully private, fully-fenced backyard, complete with a covered grilling station and storage shed.
