A timeless classic stucco over brick American Foursquare that has been meticulously cared for and updated through the years both inside and out. Situated on a deceptively private professionally landscaped acre lot in North Wales borough this property will surely exceed all expectations. Enter through the full width enclosed front porch a hallmark of the American Foursquare design which provides a fantastic sitting area or meeting place for visits from neighbors or friends. From the porch you enter the main foyer area where your eyes will be drawn to high ceilings and gleaming hardwood floors that run throughout both levels as well as the handsome turned staircase. Open from the foyer on your left you have a large living room with built in shelves. Off the living room you have a formal dining room that boasts a wood stove with natural brick surround and a charming bay window w/ cushioned seat bench that would be most enjoyable for the family pet. Accessed from either the foyer or dining room is the updated kitchen with butcher block island , a recessed refrigerator nook, and an abundance of cabinets. Off the kitchen on the back of the home is an added mudroom/laundry closet with french door access to an absolutely amazing screened in back patio from which you will enjoy nothing but the serenity and sights and sounds of nature. The upper level of the home boasts 4 bedrooms each with a more than sufficient amount of closet space for a home built over a century ago as well as an update full bath. On the upper level you will also find a walk up to a unfinished attic space. Other interior features of the home include a main level powder room, a full unfinished basement, gas fired radiant heat, and dual zone central air, and stone off-street parking for over 6 cars. The exterior of the home deserves a write up of its own and I’m not sure I can do it justice but I will try. The owner in his professional life practiced landscape architecture and design. His residence has the feel of a natural preserve complete with a meadow, rain garden, woodland, arbor, botanical garden beds and walking trails. It is truly breathtaking. Additionally you have a garden shed, low voltage landscape lighting and a fire pit as well as a fairly large portion of open grass space. If you prefer to turn areas back to lawn that could be done very simply. The location for those unfamiliar with North Wales is ideal within walking distance to the train station (R5 rail to Philly), as well as a quick commute to Merck, major access roads (Rt 202, 309, 63), shopping, schools, parks, and restaurants. Properties of this nature do not come on the market often. After 3 plus decades of love the sellers have decided it’s time to pass their home on to its new owner as they move on to their next adventure. Don’t miss your opportunity to make this beautiful property your own.
