WOW! Two open houses this week--Thursday and Sunday! Take a look at this iconic Swarthmore property that is just waiting to be refreshed! Outside-enjoy open patios and covered porches, with multiple access points, making indoor and outdoor entertaining a breeze. Large living room, dining room and kitchen on the first floor, together with a cozy breakfast room. Amazing space on the third floor with its own full bathroom and could be converted to an entertainment area, caregiver/guest suite, art or fitness studio or office. Ample square footage to work with and the high ceilings make this home feel incredibly spacious. Decades of gardening bring perennial enjoyment in a yard bursting with color. Look closely at this home and you will notice that even though it needs cosmetic upgrades, it has been well cared for--walls and woodwork are in good shape. Featured on the Swarthmore Walking Tour, it one of the first homes in the area built of poured concrete and accented with Mercer tiles. Designed by local merchant Howard Green and built by Turner Construction in 1906, this home offers period details such as pocket doors, hardwood flooring, wood-burning fireplaces, tile inlays, built-in cabinetry and even an ice box! Served by Wallingford Swarthmore School District and ideally located to Swarthmore College with Scott Arboretum, public transportation and the town center.
