Secluded cul-de-sac in Ridley Township. Private large lot (almost an acre) is set far back from the street down an extra-long driveway off a quiet street in Ridley's sought-after part of town. The center hall colonial home dates from 1888/1937 and has been renovated throughout. Enter into a 2-story foyer with an open staircase and look up to see an elegant chandelier. An impressive extra-large living room has triple crown molding and a wall of built-in bookshelves flanking a wood-burning fireplace. The home has: 6 bedrooms - 1 bedroom has a built-in custom, full-size Murphy bed with closets; 3 full and 3 half baths; 5 wood-burning fireplaces; an upgraded kitchen with 2 walls of windows, which let the natural light stream in; and an additional set of stairs. The kitchen includes stained maple wood custom cabinetry (Mouser), high-end stainless steel appliances, 2 sinks, a pot-filler, serpentine countertops, and an island with counter-seating. 5 bathrooms are renovated; 1 has marble and a small claw-foot tub. The family/breakfast room has a bay window, custom wood cabinets, and custom wood built-in bench seating with storage. An office/den/office offers plenty of room with windows all around to provide a pleasant place to work from home and includes a lot of closets. The home boasts original hardwood floors (completely refinished; wide plank in living room), 9-foot ceilings, open concept kitchen/family room, recessed lighting through-out, and plenty of closets. The home also offers a separate dining room, sitting room/library, basement pantry, and basement laundry room with NEW washer/dryer on a custom, built-in tiled pedestal. The extra large unfinished part of the basement has a 9-foot ceiling and a fireplace - it can be converted into a playroom, media room, or work-out room. There is also an attic that is spacious with full-height in the center. Seller replaced many windows (with Marvin and Anderson). Seller also replaced the roof (with 50-yr architectural shingles); HVAC (2-zoned); NEW hot water heater, gutters (oversized with gutter guards), front patio (bluestone) and side patio (EP Henry). The home is freshly-painted, both interior and exterior (work in progress). The really large, wooded, irregular lot has spacious front, side and back yards and can accommodate a garage and/or pool (or maybe it can potentially be subdivided). There is also a shed on the property for extra storage (can be converted to a workshop). A stream flows in the back (yet property is NOT in a flood zone) and you can see deer, rabbits, foxes, hawks and other wildlife. Conveniently located near grocery stores, hospitals, dining, entertainment, shopping, SEPTA (train, trolley and bus), I-476/I-95, Swarthmore College, and PHL Airport, and is fairly close to Philadelphia and Wilmington.
