Come discover this charming & spacious center hall Colonial, located on a quiet, sidewalk-lined side street. It's tucked away from everything, yet only 4-5 blocks away from the Elkins Park SEPTA station, shops & restaurants and several Township parks. The welcoming front porch spans the entire width of the house, and is the perfect spot to enjoy a morning cup of coffee or tea (in the shade!) and wave at your neighbors (both two-legged & 4-legged!) as they enjoy their morning strolls. Enter into the entry hall, and you'll begin to appreciate all the original details, like the gleaming hardwood floors & the arched French door at the rear of the hall. The front to back living room is anchored by the wood burning fireplace with windows on three side, providing an abundance of light throughout the day. The dining room has windows on two side and direct access to the retro kitchen (mid-century cabinets, upgraded backsplash & appliances). The kitchen is cozy, and will likely be modified by the next Owner. It has direct access to the side yard, and just off the rear is toe small breakfast area, and then direct access to the living room again. Rare in these older Colonials, it actually has a circular flow, which is great for entertaining. The master suite has a walk-in closet, and a completely modernized en-suite bathroom. Quite unique, the current owners vaulted the ceiling in the bath, and used beautiful marble tiles & a large stall shower with a rain shower head. The hall bathroom has also been completely renovated with tasteful subway & hex tiles in keeping with the period of the home. There are 2 more bedrooms on the 2nd floor, one with built-in shelves and the other with a double closet. The 3rd floor has the 4th bedroom, and the 3rd renovated bathroom, plus a very cozy, yet functional office room. The basement has been mostly finished, the washer & dryer are new, and the gas-fired furnace was replaced about 15 years ago (oil tanks removed, converted to gas). There is direct access to the rear-entry driveway and 2 car garage (accessed via a private drive serving all the houses along this side of Widener Road). A multi-tiered paver patio occupies the majority of the rear yard, surrounded by a privacy hedge. It's a great place for evening meals and socializing on those not so hot Summer, Spring and Fall days! There is a large side yard for outdoor play or gardening, along with a beautiful Cherry tree in the front yard and an entry arbor covered in Wisteria. The walkability from this home is fantastic, whether you want to just enjoy the local roads or travel farther afield to the library, the ice skating rink, Ogontz field, High School Park or even a longer stroll along the Tookany Creek! Here's a great opportunity to take advantage of the wonderful upgrades already completed, yet have significant equity to add your own personal touches in the near future. Come discover Widener Road, and find your next home, today!
