Looking for a neighborhood feel without actually having to live in the city? Looking for restaurants, independently owned shops and fantastic live music and cultural events? Welcome to Glenside; one of the best places to live in Pennsylvania! If you like parks and farmers markets we have them too. The Glenside Septa train station is less than a ten minute walk away. This 100+ year old house is a treasure. So much of the original detail remains. Beautiful stone exterior, thick six panel wood doors, wood floors (some painted), wide windowsills and large sunny windows (most have been replaced) and six genuinely large bedrooms. Unusual for a property of this age is the amazing amount of closet space. These are not tiny little Victorian closets - these closets have depth and breadth and in some most cases there are more than one to a bedroom! The enclosed wrap around sunroom is simply lovely with walls of windows topped with leaded glass gothic arch transoms. The wide wood floor has been painted and combines beautifully with the exterior stone walls. Entering the living room you’ll find hardwood floors (found throughout most of this home) a gas fireplace and high ceilings. This large living room opens to the formal dining room – big enough to feed your whole tribe at one large dining table and still have room for sideboard and breakfront! The eat in kitchen is sunny and bright and opens to the laundry/mudroom/half bath which also acts as the side entrance. Up the gracious turned staircase to the second floor and three of the six bedrooms and one full bath. The full bath is so bright and quite large. Each of the bedrooms has at least one large closet and all have hardwood floors. Sun licks each room and they all have distinct characteristics. Don’t need six bedrooms? Do you need one or two offices? Playroom? Homeschool room Exercise or craft room? The possibilities are endless. On the third floor are three more bedrooms and a second full bath. This bath could actually act as an ensuite which would be wonderful for a teenager. This home is side facing which means the lot is all in front of the main door. There is a small composite covered porch at the mudroom entrance. The basement is full with stone foundation and sump pump. Beautiful vintage craftsmanship, modern convenience and a fabulous location combine for a great opportunity to purchase a property that has seen generations of owners. You can put down roots and be the steward of this home's legacy, creating memories for the future.
