Fabulous "Urban Suburban" center hall colonial located on a stately tree-lined street in a super-convenient walk to location in sought-after North Side Ardmore. Located in the sought after Lower Merion School District and blocks from Suburban Square shopping (Trader Joes, Apple, Di Brunos, Farmers Market --open daily-- and restaurants such as new indoor-outdoor Lola’s Garden, Ripplewood Whiskey & Craft, and Tired Hands Brewing, as well as the new LIFETIME Fitness). The Ardmore Septa station stop is only a few blocks away for 20-minute trainride to Center City (and U Penn/HUP). The Ardmore station is also an AMTRAK stop that takes you directly to NYC! Inside, this home is elegant and grand at the same time with 7 bedrooms, 4 full & 1 half baths, brand new detached 2 car garage and flat rear yard! From the meandering flagstone walkway you are taken to a delightful front patio, perfect for enjoying a morning coffee or an evening cocktail. Enter the oversized foyer with plenty of room for receiving your guests, 9-foot ceilings and gleaming hardwood floors. To the right you will find a cozy formal living room/den/home office or library with a warm gas fireplace, built in bookshelves/cabinets and door that leads to the rear exterior patios. To the left of the foyer is the formal dining room, with gas fireplace, which is filled with two walls of natural light and perfect for large gatherings. Off the dining room is the recently remodeled 600 sq. ft. gourmet kitchen (featured in the Ardmore Kitchen Tour) with three walls of windows and large skylights for plenty of natural light, a 10-foot center island w/ counter seating, Wolf, Bosch and KitchenAid professional-grade appliances, heated tile floor, plenty of room for a full sized breakfast table, additional counter and cabinet space surrounding the room and a handsome gas fireplace. Off the kitchen is a powder room and full sized bar/butler’s pantry (with wine fridge) that leads right to the coveted family room with the 4th gas fireplace on this floor. From this room you can exit through French doors to the outdoor patios and beautifully landscaped yard! Out back you will find plenty of room for outdoor dining and gathering with both a covered rear patio and 2 additional flagstone patios for plenty of outdoor opportunities. With Sonos speakers and wiring throughout most of the first floor and the rear and side patios, it’s the perfect time of year to entertain indoors and out. Up the stairs to the second floor you will find a delightful primary suite complete with a large ensuite bathroom, a separate window-filled room for either a sitting room or home office, and a nicely sized primary bedroom with 2 walk-in closets. Also on this floor are 3 additional bedrooms (one with ensuite bathroom), plus another full hall bath. Finishing this floor is a linen closet and laundry room with utility sink and storage. On the third floor you will find 3 more bedrooms, all nicely sized, and a full bath plus two large storage closets. Current owners used the middle bedroom as a children’s playroom and later kids’ hangout space/TV and Game room! Downstairs the basement is unfinished but could be finished for additional living space. All of this plus a flat and spacious rear and side yard (complete with a secret garden) offering a large private driveway and detached 2 car garage that was just completely re-built less than 1 year ago. Classic and elegant home with abundant space, fabulous location, low taxes & award-winning schools. A truly perfect combination that should not be missed!
