Property Description

Take a step back in time to a simpler life! Be delighted by the beautiful details of the Victorian age and the conveniences of modernity. You will be impressed by this late 19th century shingle-style Colonial on one of the most intact, historic streets in all of eastern Montgomery County. What one finds today at 142 Fernbrook Avenue is a manageable gem, with exquisite details. The entire outside of the house was just painted in period-appropriate colors. The large & level rear yard is fully fenced & has no neighbors to the rear. A brick patio is the perfect spot for al-fresco dining while there is a large shed for the storage of lawn & gardening equipment. Step inside to the delightful 3-season sunporch with windows on 3 sides. In the
cooler months, simply throw open the windows and enjoy the breezes that flow down the hill. Into the main entry hall and one will be delighted that all of the original millwork has never been painted. There is a wonderful arched entry to the dining room (with decorative fireplace & a rounded bay window) and a standard cased entry to the living room. The coat closet is tucked under the staircase. The modern, updated kitchen is a delight! It takes full advantage of the extra-tall ceilings with white floor-to-ceiling cabinets. All of the appliances have been replaced with energy-efficient GE Profile S/S units while the counters are quartz. There is even a small pantry that re-uses an original leaded glass door. It is an extremely efficient design that makes use of every inch, with a prep peninsula and a breakfast area to seat 4 people. The powder room is tucked away at the rear door to the backyard. On the 2nd floor, the master bedroom overlooks the front yard, has another rounded bay window & a wall of custom closets. The 2 remaining bedrooms on this floor are very spacious, and there is even a small nursery/office room with yet another closet. The hall bathroom is efficient with a tub-shower combination. On the 3rd floor, one will find the 4th bedroom as well as another room (family room?) and attic storage. The basement has overly tall ceilings, direct access outside & walls of built-in shelving for yet more storage. The furnace was replaced in 2011 with a high-efficiency, direct-vent unit, cutting the utility bills drastically. The entire roof was replaced in 2009, and the H/W heater replaced in 2012. Perfectly sited off the beaten path, yet only 2 blocks to the Wyncote/Jenkintown train station. Come home and relax!
