A beautiful example of pre-war living, with a stone-and-wood exterior, a small fish pond off the patio and extensive hardwood flooring, plus many charming period touches. The huge living/dining room offers built-in bookshelves and cabinets and a gas fireplace set into its own alcove. The cozy kitchen/breakfast room opens onto a den with built-in bookshelves and its own half-bath. The second floor features three light-filled bedrooms, each with its own spacious walk-in closet. The airy master bedroom has built-ins and a ceramic tile bath with stall shower. Extensive wooden shelves line the wall of the small bedroom-- perfect for a nursery/playroom. Two large attic spaces. Half of the basement is set up for storage and laundry, and the other half is finished, could be a huge library, office space or man-cave. Best of all: attached to the house via a breezeway is a separate wood-paneled apartment with its own stall shower bath, kitchenette and private entrances-- ideal for guests, inlaws,or a home office. Mature plantings line the sidewalks. Located in one of America's best school districts, one third of a mile from Lower Merion High School. Extremely convenient to mass transit-- the bus to Philadelphia runs literally across the street, and it's a 15 minute walk to Septa Regional Rail. A lovely, distinctive, happy home. If you're in the kitchen around dawn, you can sometimes look out the kitchen window and see deer and rabbits by the apple tree. Be sure to check out the three-masted schooner over the fireplace. Previous owners lived there for almost 20 years, are retiring to California-- they say make an offer!
