    Property Details

    Get away from it all, yet still be in the heart of a vibrant community. Set high on a rise across from protected green space (Jenkintown Creek), one feels like you're in the Poconos when you pull up your drive and enjoy the fully wooded views across the street. This early 60's stone & masonry Cape Cod home provides exceptional value & privacy on its nearly 1/2 acre lot. A natural woodland garden filled with ferns, Mahonia & other native plants that cover the front hillside, while perennial gardens flank the front entry. An over-sized 2-car garage (with a new garage door) is attached to the side with direct access to the screened porch overlooking the back yard that also has direct access into the kitchen. A majority of the rear yard is fenced and the siting of the house provides for longer distant views across the neighboring rear yards. Surprisingly spacious, the 2,500+ SF of living space provides all the rooms one needs. Enter into the living room that is flooded with light from the Southern-facing picture window as well as two Eastern facing double-hung windows. A wall of bookcases flanks both sides of the fireplace that has recently been enhanced with a wood-burning stove (great for reducing the heating costs in the Winter!). The formal dining room overlooks the front yard & is enhanced with chair rails & original grass cloth paper. The large eat-in kitchen overlooks the rear yard and has a wall of closets, a desk and a large breakfast area. The original lay-out of the kitchen has recently been enhanced with stainless steel appliances, new counter tops & an under-mount sink with disposal. Attached to the kitchen is a covered, screened in patio (mentioned earlier) that is perfect for al-fresco dining without the bugs! There is a full bath (with a linen closet), another linen closet as well as the coat closet in the hallway. The family room/office is tucked into the Southwest corner of the 1st floor and could also, easily be used as an additional 1st floor bedroom, as it has a large closet. Upstairs are three very large bedrooms and the 2nd full bathroom with another linen closet. As is common with the Cape Cod design, efficient use of space takes advantage of the storage under the eaves. One the bedrooms has a very large walk-in closet with a window facing the side yard and a unique elevated shoe closet! The 2nd bedroom has two closets while the 3rd bedroom has 1 closet and two additional storage areas. The basement is half-finished and half un-finished for ample storage. The roof was recently replaced with 30-year, architectural asphalt shingles. It's a spacious, light-filled home that feels like it is miles away, yet is really close to everything! Einstein & Moss Rehab are directly on the other side of the creek, while Fox Chase Cancer Center & Abington Hospital are just a mile or so away. Within 5 miles, all the shops & restaurants of Jenkintown (including Whole Foods & Trader Joe's) are easily accessible. All of the independently owned local restaurants of Elkins Park are worth experiencing. Just a few blocks away, one can access the Tookany Creek Park, which is a 30+ acre natural parkland with miles of walking/jogging trails, and the wonderful 62nd Annual Fishing Derby at Kleinheinz Pond (this year on June 1st!). Come discover this wonderful home in a great community!
