What more could you ask for in your new home? This mid-Century stone fronted Colonial has all the room you might need (and then some!) located on a lovely lot of 0.4 acres. It's perfectly located within walking distance to numerous parks, either the Melrose or Elkins Park train stations and CreekSide Coop. It has been loved by the same family for over 30 years, yet significantly updated within the past 10 years. With over 3,100 SF (plus another 800+ SF in the basement!), it's a warm & inviting property. The central entry hall has a tiled floor & the powder room is tucked all the way at the end of the hall. The step down living room has a large bay window overlooking the front yard and a gas fireplace (currently not connected). The large dining room has ample room for 8+ guests for dinner, while the newly updated kitchen (renovated in 2006) has a more casual breakfast room, tons of cabinet space, a charging counter with glass fronted cabinets above, a wall-mounted TV, granite counters, all the required S/S appliances and even a built-in beverage cooler! The rear door connects to the driveway, 2-car garage, the 1-car carport & the "almost" fully fenced rear yard. The lawns out back provide ample options for playing sports or other activities or feel free to expand on the lovely border gardens of roses & other perennials. There's even ample room to add a pool if you so desire. There is a cozy family room with more built-in bookshelves. From this room, you have access to the heated sunroom & rear deck. The basement is completely finished & provides 4 distinct spaces (plus the laundry & another powder room). One room is currently set-up as gym while the other is a music studio! The remainder provides ample sitting options and is fully heated & air conditioned. The master suite includes a large walk-in closet with a built-in vanity & the original en-suite bathroom. The remaining 3 bedrooms are all large in scale. One bedroom has another walk-in closet & a lovely sitting room while another one of the bedrooms has a wall of built-in shelves & a desk wall. There is a hall bathroom to service the 3 guest bedrooms. The sitting room in the rear bedroom could easily be converted to another en-suite bath (as it backs up to the hall bathroom). The windows have all been replaced & the gas-fired HVA/C system was replaced about 10 years ago. It's a great house on a great street in a great community, waiting for you to call it home!
