Property Description

Stunning FIVE Bedroom home with a fabulous THREE CAR GARAGE with a LARGE GARAGE LOFT/GREAT ROOM in the heart of Swarthmore Borough. An amazing blend of old world CHARM and MODERN updates! This home was renovated top to bottom by the previous owner and the current owners have continued these renovations with a vengeance, including turning a three-season porch into an office and removing a second stairway to make way for a Mud Room. The Mud Room has built-in cubbies and a large closet – features you will not find in many older homes! There are beautiful HARDWOOD floors throughout. 323 Park Avenue is flanked by a refurbished front porch with MAHOGANY decking, NEW posts, and NEW Lighting First floor features a fantastic Great Room, currently used as a combination Family Room and Living Room. This was previously two rooms. A newly installed gas fireplace is the focal point of the room with charming POCKET DOORS at the entrance, high ceilings and NEW lighting. There is a gorgeous, newly revamped Kitchen, featuring white cabinetry and marble countertops plus a peninsula with bar seating and plenty of room for a substantial dining table. The Kitchen opens to one of the home’s most beloved features: a glorious covered deck with a skylight, ceiling fan and new lighting. A real show stopper! There is an adorable Powder Room on the first floor, too, tucked under the grand hallway staircase. Upstairs you will find three Bedrooms on the second floor, including a Master Bedroom with private Bathroom featuring a Japanese soaking tub/jacuzzi and luxurious shower. There is a nice Hall Bathroom and a Laundry Room is conveniently located here. There is a NEW linen closet on this floor, too. The third-floor features two more Bedrooms plus a wonderful bonus space that has been used as a Playroom and mini Guest Bedroom over the years. There is a full Bathroom on this floor as well. The Basement, currently unfinished, has French drains and a sump pump and provides major storage space. The Garage offers three bays for cars, workshop or storage with another show stopper: a heated Great Room above the garage, which can be used as an office, hang out space or home gym. A beautiful, deep yard rounds out the property. The list of improvements is long and mighty. 323 Park Avenue is just three short blocks to the center of town, where you’ll find a SEPTA Train Station, cute shops, restaurants, a town library and more. A wonderful house to call home!
