Property Description

This spacious colonial welcomes you home with an open front porch overlooking the landscaped front lawn. Enter the center hall for a taste of the picture perfect condition inside. The large living room has a pretty view from a picture window. The formal dining room introduces the beautiful natural woodwork found throughout the home. The eat-in kitchen offers oak cabinets with under-cabinet lighting, Corian counter tops and integrated sink, Kenmore gas stove and refrigerator, Maytag dishwasher, and pantry cupboard. A cozy family room is the perfect place for movie night. Off the family room is a large sunroom with a vaulted ceiling. This beautiful space is heated and air-conditioned to allow for year-round enjoyment. Two walls of windows
and sliders bring the outdoors in with gorgeous views of the rear property. Also on the first floor are a handsomely updated powder room with mosaic tile floor and a laundry room with shelving. Upstairs the master bedroom boasts glistening oak floors, a double closet and a sitting area as well as an adjoining door to the hall bath with a soaking tub, oak vanity and matching cupboard. The second bedroom is nearly as big as the master and has two closets and pretty views of the property through three bright windows. The large third bedroom has a good-sized closet and double window overlooking the lawn. The lower level has a surprisingly high ceiling. A finished family room is nearly the size of the first floor footprint, with plenty of room for a pool table, an office and a TV watching nook. The unfinished area has a handy workshop. Sensible updates include a newer heater, hot water heater and roof. Central Air keeps the house comfortable all summer long. Over one quarter acre of beautiful landscaped grounds begin with a level front lawn. The backyard slopes gently down to a useful shed. The rear tree line provides privacy. Follow it all the way down to the bank of Crum Creek to hunt for crayfish and frogs. In spite of the beautiful natural setting, 1026 Girard is just over four blocks from downtown Swarthmore's shops, library and regional rail station to Philadelphia. Ridley School District was included on Pennsylvania's 2011 list of over-achieving districts. Ridley High School is less than a mile away. Its ample resources include state of the art science labs and an outstanding athletic department.
