Nestled in the heart of historic Academyville, this 4-bedroom plus office, 2.5 bath home is situated on a third of an acre of greenery. This 1844 Colonial vintage residence stands directly across from Lower Merion Academy, the oldest continuously operated educational facility in the US, founded in 1813. Cynwyd Elementary (rated the 4th best in Pennsylvania) and Bala Cynwyd Middle School are just across the street. A red brick walkway and spacious front porch serve as a gateway to a living space -incorporating two centuries of construction history. The front section consists of three stories of carefully preserved historic rooms replete with original random-width wood flooring with working fireplaces in the entry room, the candle-lit chandelier dining room, and two of the second-floor bedrooms. The entry/music room with half bath flows into an early 1900's addition including a modern kitchen with an open flow access to a stunning mid-20th century sun room fully encased in wall and ceiling glass panels and a living room with French Door egress to a sizeable rear deck. The expansive two level deck overlooks a generous back yard and high-ceiling two-car garage with a large interior loft which might easily convert into a studio or in-law suite. The second-floor extensions, circa 1920, include a sizeable double bedroom and 2 full baths, which accommodate the two colonial-period bedrooms as well. A winding staircase leads to the third floor with two large rooms, circa 1844, that might serve as a mix of bedroom, office and library space. The first of these rooms provides access to a substantial attic area suitable for storage and closet purposes. This family friendly neighborhood is convenient to public transportation, major highway routes and Lower Merion's renowned Blue-Ribbon Schools with tennis courts, basketball courts, running track and playgrounds. This home awaits your family!
