Wander down this hidden lane in the heart of "Olde Wyncote" to discover this custom-crafted 1963 Colonial (designed by Sydney Jelinek, constructed by Robert Lipschutz) with the most amazing surprise in the back yard. An idyllic setting on 1.4 acres where nature surrounds you & one feels like you are out in the country, yet walkable to the Jenkintown SEPTA station! Nearly 1/3 of the property is the most amazing spring-fed lake (fenced) that is well stocked with fish, several specimen Koi & the largest bullfrogs I have ever seen! A secret Grotto & a hidden hammock are there for the finding! The vistas are protected, as a large amount of the woodlands beyond the pond are owned by this property. The sounds of nature surround you, whether on the rear brick patio, deck or gazebo & even while inside the home. There is ample space to relax & enjoy all 4 seasons. Inside, the living & dining rooms have random-width, pegged flooring while Oak floors cover the hallway, den, stairs & the entire upstairs (some under w/w). There is not a bad view from any of the large windows. The living room has 1 of the 2 fireplaces with a wall of built-in cabinets & shelves along with a large bay window overlooking the lake. A cozy den with a dry bar & direct access to the rear deck occupies the space behind the stairs. The powder room is conveniently tucked next to the kitchen. The kitchen is three distinct spaces, the main cooking area has ample cabinets & all the necessary appliances, then there is the laundry area & the breakfast area with a rear staircase to the 2nd floor office & bedrooms. One can either access the front patio & drive or the rear patio & yard from the kitchen. The finished basement is fully floored in Terrazzo marble flooring with walk-out access to the pond, a full bath & a huge amount of storage. The 2nd fireplace is located in the finished family room. The master suite has a large dressing room, an en-suite with both a tub & shower & ample closets. Three more bedrooms are accessed off the hallway & share a hall bathroom. There is a pull-down staircase to access the fully floored attic for yet more storage. The house is serviced by a 2-zoned gas boiler and also 2-zoned central A/C. It is an impeccably maintained property, hidden from the crowds & worlds away from the everyday. You'll never believe that you are just minutes to shopping, major highways & public transportation. Come explore 431 Crescent Road for yourself & make sure to stop & listen to nature.
