148 Walnut Lane, Ambler

148 Walnut Lane is a lovely stone home tucked away on one of the borough’s most charming and sought after streets. Walnut Lane is just one block long and typically traversed only by those who call Walnut Lane home. From the moment that you pull up to the house, you will feel right at home and welcomed by the beautiful landscaping and sweet front patio.

Inside, you will find a spacious living room with gorgeous hardwood flooring, a stone fireplace flanked by built-ins that marry into a lovely mantel, and deep windowsills. The hardwood flooring carries into the adjacent dining room which boasts fantastic natural light, lovely arched openings, and chair rail. Through the dining room, you will fall in love with the spectacular custom kitchen.

The kitchen features walnut stained cherry cabinetry along with some accent cabinets, a few seeded glass doors, and hand painted knobs and pulls. The contrast between the beautiful soapstone countertops, butcher block accent, custom tile backsplash, stainless steel appliances, cabinetry, and farm sink is perfection. There is ample counter space, a great workflow, and tons of storage. All of the details have been covered, including a custom cabinet front dishwasher and hidden trash bin. Gas cooking is another plus, as is the view into the rear yard from over the sink, and access to the rear deck.

Through the kitchen, you will find a sunken family room with gas fireplace and built-in shelving. On the other side of the family room is a separate den featuring wainscoting, a striking beamed ceiling, hardwood flooring, and access to a coveted screened in porch. The porch gets so much use that many months of the year, it is essentially living space; an ideal place for entertaining, or more frequently, the perfect spot for a nap. Back inside, the first floor also offers a conveniently located powder room.

Upstairs, you will find three nicely sized bedrooms with hardwood flooring throughout and a roomy hall bathroom. The bedroom on the left offers a huge closet and skylight which brings in fabulous additional light. The bedroom at the opposite end of the hall has been used as the master, as it is quite spacious and offers two closets. The middle bedroom was initially the largest of them all but was separated years ago to give siblings a more defined space. The walls and pocket door could easily be removed to restore the room to its original shape and size, if desired. This room also offers two closets, as well as access to a huge walk-up attic. The attic space is a major bonus, as most of it is floored, offering tons of conveniently located storage space.

Down below, the basement is finished, offering even more living space and a full bathroom. The laundry is located in the basement and there is also plenty of shelved storage space, as well as outside access to the rear yard.

Outside, the back yard is absolutely charming and private. In addition to the screened porch, there is a large deck that overlooks the yard offering plenty of room for grilling, dining, and lounging. A retractable awning provides welcome shade on hot days. The entire property has been professionally landscaped and includes a wonderful pollinator garden. The garden is comprised of native plants that are beneficial to our environment and beautiful at the same time! If gardening is your thing, you will love the bee balm, evening primrose, bellflower, spirea, Joe Pye weed, and more. There are mature trees that offer privacy and also sheds for storage.

The house offers central air and gas heating, also, the roof, windows, and siding were all replaced within the past 6 years and the house has been freshly painted. 148 Walnut 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 just blocks from downtown Ambler. Fabulous restaurants, breweries, shops and services, an independent theater and playhouse, as well as the best grocery store around are all just a hop skip and a jump away. If you need to commute, the train is also within walking distance, also access to 309 and all major routes of transportation are minutes away. Sought after Wissahickon School District is the icing on the cake!

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. 

Showings begin on Friday, June 21st. For a private showing, or more information, please contact me, Allison Wolf. 215-704-9888 | allison.wolf@foxroach.com

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. There are beautiful French doors between the living room and dining room.

Beyond the dining room, you will find a very well designed kitchen that offers a great workflow. The sink, stove, and refrigerator are all perfectly located and there is an abundance of counter space. There is also tons of room for storage, including a built-in pantry and coffee bar, as well as a built-in table for casual meals. Through the kitchen is a light filled three season room that you will adore. There is plenty of room for dining and lounging, screens allowing for a lovely cross breeze and custom shades allowing for privacy. The views of the yard are spectacular.

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!

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 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.
