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]

333 Kenilworth Lane, Lower Gwynedd

Situated on a gorgeous lot, 333 Kenilworth is an immaculate, turn-key home on a quiet cul-de-sac. This refined home has been tastefully updated throughout, has a fantastic flow, and is filled with natural light. Rarely does a home like this become available.

From the moment that you approach the home, it is evident that you are in store for something very special. 333 oozes curb appeal and is even more spectacular when in bloom.

Inside, you are welcomed into a lovely foyer that offers a view through the house and into the beautiful back yard. To your left is a spacious living room featuring a bank of windows that bathe the room in natural light. The focal point is a wood-burning fireplace complete with bluestone hearth, custom wood mantle, and lighted built-ins on either side. The living room also offers recessed lighting, crown molding, and hardwood flooring (which continue throughout this level). The living room flows into the dining room that is large enough to comfortably accommodate a sizable table and hutch.

The dining room opens into an absolutely gorgeous kitchen. This is a true cooks kitchen boasting beautiful Cherry cabinets, Soapstone countertops perfectly married with a stainless steel counter surrounding the sink, tons of workspace and abundant storage, and the ideal “golden triangle” making this kitchen not only aesthetically pleasing but extremely functional. You will also appreciate the lighted cabinets, under-counter task lighting, out of sight microwave, built-in pantry, cookbook niche, stainless steel appliances including a double oven, and fabulous bar seating. Another very important aspect of this space is the connection with the outdoors. The rear wall is essentially a wall of windows that offers beautiful views of the peaceful backyard and truly brings the outdoors in. With these three important rooms (and the outside) interconnected, this home is made for entertaining.

Up a short flight of stairs, the second level offers three bedrooms and two bathrooms. The generous master bedroom features a lovely ensuite bathroom with custom cabinetry, frameless glass shower, and radiant heated flooring. Two additional, nicely sized bedrooms share a hall bath which also boasts custom cabinetry and a heated floor. Note the transom window that was thoughtfully incorporated in order to bring natural light into this space.

Up one more short flight of stairs is the fourth bedroom. This is a large room that is currently set up as a guest suite/craft room. The room offers tasteful built-ins and a huge closet. While viewing the closet, be sure to peek into the attic and see more storage space than anyone could possibly need.

Down below on the lower level, you will find a cozy, yet spacious, family room. This comfortable space offers lovely views into the backyard and a wall of built-ins, as well as, a large storage closet, an out of the way powder room, and outside access to the driveway side of the house. Opposite the family room, you will find a large laundry/mudroom that offers access to the attached two-car garage and a huge crawlspace, offering even more storage.

With the exception of the lower level, you will find hardwood flooring throughout the house.

The owners have essentially redone the entire house, top to bottom, during their tenure at 333. Every single renovation and improvement (inside and out) was done with the utmost care and no expense was spared. Not having any intention of moving anytime soon, the roof was done with 40-year shingles and an invasive energy audit was completed a few years ago and close to $30k was spent on improvements in order to make the home as efficient as can be. This includes, but is not limited to, air sealing of the entire building envelope, replacing almost all of the ductwork, new insulation in the walls and attic, a high-end chimney damper, and new high-efficiency HVAC. When making exterior improvements, including installing Hardie Plank siding and Azek trim, they decided to upgrade the electric and have it placed underground. All of the windows and doors have been replaced. The kitchen and baths are beautiful. There is literally nothing left to do.

If you enjoy nature, you will love this private oasis. There is a large deck in the rear of the home, providing plenty of space for a dining area, a place to grill, and a lounge area. The rear yard is fully fenced (brand new in 2019) and is an absolute dream. The landscaping has been perfectly curated, boasting countless perennials and flowering trees. You will enjoy cultivating in the charming garden, tinkering in the shed (complete with electric), and playing in the grass.

Even if you are local, you may not be familiar with Kenilworth Lane as it is a small cul-de-sac of only six homes, with zero through traffic. Despite being “off the beaten path” the Lower Gwynedd location is fantastic and close to everything, including downtown Ambler and the train to the city, major routes of travel, and beautiful hiking trails. This home affords children to attend Wissahickon Schools, including Lower Gwynedd Elementary.

333 Kenilworth offers a rare opportunity that you do not want to miss. This property will not last long, do not delay in seeing it! For more information or a private showing (available beginning Thursday, January 23rd), please contact me, Allison Wolf. 215-704-9888 | [email protected]

Adjacent to the family room is the laundry room, complete with a utility sink and built-in shelving, as well as access to a conveniently located powder room. Off the laundry room is one of the highlights of the home, a huge screened-in porch that you are sure to fall in love with.

Outside, the back yard is a dream. It is fully fenced and perfectly sized. Once the trees have their leaves, it is private and lush. If you are the lucky owner of this home, you will be moved in in time to see the Cherry Tree in full bloom.

Ambler boasts an incredible array of restaurants, two breweries(!), shopping and services, the best cooperative grocery store, annual festivals, a seasonal farmers’ market, a new library is in the works, and more! There are two parks that are both located just blocks away; Riccardi Park which offers a playground, tennis and pickleball courts, a walking trail, and an open field and Ambler Borough Park, a natural, dog-friendly, park with a creek.

In terms of commuting, the location couldn’t be more convenient, as you are minutes from the train station and route 309, which leads to all major routes of transportation. This home is in move-in condition allowing you to unpack and start living your life in this wonderful town. Don’t wait too long, as this home will not last!

The cabinetry was handmade in Phoenixville (by Dilworth Custom Design) and includes a wonderful pantry with pull out drawers, a pull out spice rack, lighted display cabinet, lazy Susan, and hidden trash. You will love the gas range, wall oven and microwave, undermount sink, tumbled stone backsplash, granite countertops, under cabinet lighting, stainless steel appliances, and recessed lighting. This kitchen offers an abundance of storage and workspace.

Through the kitchen, you will find a bright dining room featuring French doors that offer a lovely view onto a private patio. The dining room is open to the spectacular 2-story great room featuring two skylights, a gas fireplace with bluestone hearth flanked by cottage windows with plantation shutters, and a view of the loft above. You will appreciate the newer hardwood flooring and recessed lighting throughout much of the first floor. The first floor also offers a powder room that is tucked away, two coat closets, and access to the garage.

A turned staircase takes you upstairs to the second floor where you will find two bedrooms, both with ensuite bathrooms, a loft, and the laundry area. The master bedroom is spacious and bright with a double door entrance, walk-in closet, separate marble topped dressing vanity, and a large ensuite bath with a six-foot soaking tub and separate shower. The second bedroom also offers great natural light and a private ensuite bath, perfect for guests.

When this home was built by Guidi, an esteemed custom builder, the loft was an upgrade in this model that few took advantage of. You will be pleased to see that 319 Bangor offers the loft, which is the perfect place to curl up with a book or set up as a home office.

Down below, the basement offers a plethora of storage, built-in shelving, and a large closet. An attached one-car garage offers convenient inside access and covered parking, which certainly comes in handy this time of year.

This is a choice location within Gwynedd Hunt offering a rear patio that is fenced on both sides for privacy with a view of open space and trees. The slate patio offers plenty of room for dining and lounging and features a retractable awning. The flow of this home, inside and out, makes it ideal for entertaining while offering a warm and comfortable feel.

Located just over a mile from 309, it is convenient to everything. Springhouse Village Center is a stone’s throw away featuring Whole Foods, great restaurants, Starbucks, CVS, and more. Treweryn Farm Trail is just up the road offering a lovely walking trail and creek. Downtown Ambler is a few minutes away boasting a theater, playhouse, fabulous restaurants, farmers’ market, train to center city, and more.

A fantastic location in an attractive community that offers a very low maintenance lifestyle. This home is it, don’t delay! For more information or a private showing, please contact me, Allison Wolf. 215-704-9888 | [email protected]
