Situated on one of the most secluded streets and lots in Rydal, and yet, still within walking distance or a short ride to Whole Foods, Penn State or the Rydal train station. This 2 story colonial is a Rydal GEM. Set on almost 2 acres, and offering 3,500 square feet, this house has it all! A gracious large tiled floor entry welcomes you. Magnificent views of your grounds begin in the living room with light streaming in through the new bow window. H/W, recessed lighting and a wood burning fireplace placed within a floor to ceiling stone wall divides the living room from the dining room. The dining room has H/W floors and sliding glass doors that lead out to a concrete patio with a newer retractable awning. The large, eat in kitchen boasts granite counter tops, numerous wood cabinets, h/w floors, GE Profile appliances and gas cooking. Access the patio or view the magnificent backyard from the kitchen, also, through sliding glass doors. You will love the three large closets conveniently placed in the kitchen area. One is now used as a pantry and the others for coats and storage. Next to the kitchen you will find the laundry room with updated cabinets and granite to match the kitchen, S/S sink and newer Whirpool washer and dryer, and, an outside exit! The den/guest room/aupair suite is complete with it's own full bath and shower. You will find an additional 1/2 bath and coat closet on the main floor. Read a book, or just relax in the family room. It has the ever loved pocket door, walls of built-in book shelves and cabinets. Double doors lead from the family room to your 22X7 glass enclosed sun porch with slate floor, skylights, and inside access to your 2 car garage. Upstairs are 5 nice size bedrooms including the master B/R with H/W floors, ceiling fan, 11X5 walk-in closet with drawers and shelves. The master bath has tile floor, a 2 person Jacuzzi tub and large shower with 2 - 2 jetted shower towers. Hall bath has double sinks, tub and shower. The 15 X 15 5th bedroom also has a full attached bath with shower. Keep the upstairs cool with the attic fan in the walk up attic. Gaze around outside, and you'll find the grounds amazing. Mature shrubs and the entire 1.85 acres are fenced. Dive into the beautiful heated Sylvan In-ground pool, or relax in the Jacuzzi hot tub. Add to all this a new roof (2014), outdoor gas line for the grill, all pool equipment, new garage door, garden equipment, heater/hwh, (2014), and wired alarm. A True Gem!
