Welcome Home, to one of the original and most coveted homes in Ardmore. Located on a tranquil street known for distinctive architecture, this home embodies sophisticated elegance. On first view, your eyes are drawn to the wrap-around front porch, with stately columns, architectural balusters, and mahogany decking. Enter the home and feel a sense of awe as your eyes are drawn to the stunning original millwork. The elegant mantel with dental molding, the bold turned stair case, and natural wood balusters, highlight that this early 1900's home was built in an era when pride, craftsmanship and detail were driving forces. To the left you find a peaceful sitting-reading room anchored by yet another stunning natural wood mantel. Step through the hall into the large family room. Flooded with natural light from a stunning set of bay windows, this room opens into a unique dining room that features a handcrafted built-in pantry, and a ~hidden staircase~ that ascends to the second floor. In the kitchen stunning wood cabinetry integrates seamlessly with the original architectural aesthetics of the home, and a powder room rounds out the first floor. The backdoor steps out to a massive yard where light cascades through magnificent trees throughout out the day, providing privacy and a relaxing parklike atmosphere. This double lot property awaits your personal touches (perhaps a rose garden and slate patio with fire pit are in your future!) From the formal foyer, the grand stair case takes you to the upstairs landing where light and angles converge. Here you access four large bedrooms and the main bathroom. Another set of stairs ascend to the large, open, third floor which can be used as a 5th bedroom, a playroom, a tremendous home office, or one can easily convert this space to a master suite. A brand-new heating and central air system, and new range were just installed. Around the corner you have the Blue Ribbon Elementary School, Chesnutwold, and up the street you will find Carlino's Italian Market, and Sam's Brick Oven Pizza. A few more blocks takes you to the heart of Ardmore where you can enjoy countless shops, award winning restaurants and breweries, live music and shopping, or hop on the train to center city, NYC, and beyond. The current owners are members of the original family which built the home five generations ago, and are looking for new stewards to carry on the legacy.This classic Ardmore architectural gem awaits a sophisticated, discerning buyer who wants to make this piece of history their forever home.
