On a quiet, tree-lined street in the wonderful borough of Swarthmore, this charming custom center-hall colonial was built in 1927 by George Gillespie & Company. The house was first owned by the founder of the Wilson Oil Company. Since then, it has been lovingly cared for and passed along to the current owner who has maintained its' handsome curb-appeal and classic early American interior. Upon entering through the front foyer, you immediately sense the rich history of this home and the quality built into it. To the left, the living room is a great place to sit with a book by the wood-burning fireplace, relax or to entertain guests. Just beyond that is a Sitting Room currently used as a semi-private Office. To the right of the Foyer is the formal Dining Room that is large enough for any Thanksgiving feast you could host! Through the Dining Room is a large Eat-In Kitchen with updated appliances, lots of cabinetry for storage and beautiful natural lighting. At the rear of this house is a sitting room leading in from the oversized two car Garage. Following the stairs to the second floor you will find a spacious Master Bedroom with updated Bath and entrance into a smaller Bedroom, well-suited for a Nursery, Office or Sitting Room. The additional Bedrooms and two full Baths are updated and sizable. Topping this all off, is a walk-up Attic that was finished by the original homeowner Mr. Wilson, whose wife was known to have a penchant for fur coats, so there are six cedar closets in the Attic providing an abundance of seasonal storage space. Complementing this well-maintained home is a back yard guaranteed to delight any homeowner. The larger lot size allows for a huge rear yard with a lovely slate Patio, mature landscaping and a second, expansive paver Patio with fire-pit for enjoying crisp, fall evenings with friends and family. As a special addition, the owner has restored a small outbuilding and added power and heat - a year-round hideaway that he calls The Lodge. This is a great street that values community. Every year, for over thirty years, this block has hosted a Fourth of July block party that brings together all the wonderful people living in the area. Just a short walk to recreational fields and playground, and a stone's throw from the town center, train station and Swarthmore College. Don't let this one get away. Make your appointment to see it and fall in love today.
