    Property Details

    Welcome to Serpentine Lane! This lightly traveled, meandering road has an eclectic mix of classic architecture from the turn of the last Century to unique Mid-Century modern residences, all on gracious lots. It's a welcoming community where neighbors walk frequently and have block parties. This home began its life as a simple Bungalow & was nearly doubled in size in 1955 with a fantastic modern addition (of that time) that provides the fantastic open-concept living everyone wants today with vaulted & beamed ceilings, a full-wall stone fireplace (now gas), walls of windows overlooking the rear yard, a Dutch door to the rear brick patio and just a few steps up to the foyer & dining room. The kitchen & dining room have an entire bank of Western facing windows, unique V-groove wainscoting & another door to another covered side porch. The current kitchen was custom crafted in 2008 by a Master Carpenter with inset Cherry cabinetry, hard Maple counters and all the necessary appliances. The entry foyer (with a stone floor and closet) is the core of the house, with a few steps down to the finished, walk-out basement (with a bedroom, a large open play area, a full bath & the laundry) that provides an additional 618SF. A few steps up and you find the original living room (with the 2nd gas fireplace) and the master suite (with a walk-in closet & an en-suite bath). Up one more flight of stairs and you will find 3 of the original Bungalow bedrooms and the 3rd full bath. The rear yard was re-graded with retaining walls constructed to provide for a large & level area for play and gardening. What was once a detached 1-car garage was converted to a finished art studio (240SF). It was previously heated by a propane heater. There are many specimen trees throughout the property, including a large Japanese Red Maple (likely planted with the 1955 addition), a stately Katsura tree in the front yard & a weeping Cherry anchoring the rear yard. When you sit on the rear veranda, you feel like you are out in the middle of the woods with no neighbors, yet you are just a mile from the Jenkintown SEPTA station and downtown Jenkintown. There are 3 zones for heating & 2 zones for the central A/C (3rd floor bedrooms still use A/C units). Every season gives you something new to enjoy (either outside, or the vistas through the numerous windows). It is a unique floor plan that provides spacious rooms yet distinct areas where one can get away from the crowds if peace & quiet is what you seek!
