This 1920 Tudor Colonial has only had two families in residence in its 100+ years. The current owner's parents purchased the home from the original Owners in 1955. This lovely Tudor Colonial has an ageless aesthetic from the moment you pull up to the curb. Set into the landscape, the gently sloping lot provides for direct access to the deep & private rear yard. With over three quarters of an acre, the rear yard extends over 350' down to the Tookany Creek. One enjoys all the privacy that is afforded from a beautiful waterway & the Township pool beyond. It's a nature lover's paradise with a beautiful canopy of mature trees along the creek's edge. The rear yard provides ample room for playing, gardening or any other outdoor activities one could enjoy. Offering over 3,300 sq. ft. of living space, you will begin to appreciate all the beautiful details the moment you approach the front door. What stands out as soon as you enter the central hallway is the quality & richness of all the original oak detailing that has never been painted! Under the staircase behind a wall of oak paneling is a large coat closet & the powder room. The dining room has random width, pegged & butterflied oak flooring & two amazing arched oak doors with leaded glass windows. The first door provides access to the kitchen while the 2nd door opens to a china cabinet that has a sliding pass-through to the kitchen! A large bay window provides one of the best views from inside the house, overlooking the rear grounds. Between the dining room & the kitchen, one accesses the basement through a nautical-themed door with a porthole window! The efficient kitchen with solid oak cabinets overlooks the front yard. One may want to change this space, but it does retain a very 'Mid-Mod' 50's aesthetic. The living room has a wood burning fireplace & a large picture window overlooking the front yard. The most detailed room is the home office area tucked off the living room with rich paneling, bookcases & original art panels built-in along the ceiling. The family room is accessible from the family room or the central hallway. This space is tucked at the rear of the first floor & also provides great views over the rear yard. Direct access is provided to the elevated stone patio that has a staircase down to the yard. The owner's suite overlooks the rear yard, has two large closets as well as a 'secret' cedar closet tucked into a portion of the attic space. The en-suite bathroom was renovated in 2012 and provides a large stall shower, a vanity area with built-in bookcases & two sinks. The three remaining bedrooms on this floor share the hall bathroom with a tub-shower combination. One of those bedrooms has a large dressing area with a wall of closets. The third floor provides two more large bedrooms and the 3rd full bath with a stall shower. Tucked into one of the roof eaves one will find the air handler for the high-velocity central A/C system that services the entire 2nd & 3rd floors. For the 1st floor, the owner's installed 3 mini-split systems in the family room, living room & kitchen. That system does have the capability to add one more unit if needed. The entire HVA/C system was installed in 2014. The full basement is partially finished with wood flooring and direct access to the driveway through two exterior doors. Also in the basement is the laundry area as well as a 4th full bathroom along with ample storage areas. From the basement, one can also access the 2-car, heated garage that also has a heated workshop. The oil-fired boiler was replaced in 2014. It's a solid house on a great street in a great community. Within walking distance, one can access many of the Township parks and the Glenside Pool and Library. Just a few more blocks away are all the restaurants and shops along Easton Road in Glenside as well as the SEPTA train station. Always buy the house you love because the house will love you back!
