Offer Deadline of June 13 by 8:00 pm. Welcome to a magnificent and very special home in Lansdale’s West Ward where superb architectural details and modern systems abound! As you approach from tree-lined Columbia Avenue, you’ll marvel at the Georgian-style front door with beautiful sidelites, a stained-glass fan light window and the magnificent turret roof standing out as an impressive feature. Enter through the covered front porch and step into a charming entryway leading to the spacious Living Room. You’ll appreciate the gorgeous, newly-refinished hardwood floors, chestnut wood trim & the freshly-painted neutral-color walls throughout the home. Although some of the wood trim is painted, much of it is exposed & is throughout the home. The Living Room features well-planned floor-to-ceiling built-ins, gorgeous Queen Anne-style windows & a brick fireplace with an elegant cantilevered solid-wood mantle. Adjacent is the formal Dining Room separated by solid chestnut wood pocket doors. Two charming corner cabinets are perfectly suited & save space while increasing storage. Beveled glass door panels are another example of the architectural details. The spacious Kitchen features hardwood floors, abundant recently-painted cabinetry, a newer induction cooktop & a newer faucet. A hallway leads to a Bonus Room, office or 5th bedroom, that includes a Powder Room & large walk-in pantry closet. Perhaps the Powder Room could be expanded to a full bath. From the Kitchen & Living Room are steps leading to the grand staircase & 2nd Floor. The woodwork & craftsmanship are exquisite! The windows showcase the 3rd group of stained-glass windows & offer a bird’s-eye view to the expansive back yard & detached garage. At the top of the stairs, left, is Bedroom 1, a delightful room with soothing paint colors, built-in cabinetry, shelving & 2 closets. Bedroom 2, currently used as the Primary Bedroom is bright, spacious & has 2 closets. Adjoining Bedroom 2 and 3 is a charming room with 3 massive windows calling you to read a good book in the abundant natural light. Bedroom 3 is also spacious with 2 closets. Bedroom 4 is perfect as a home office, nursery or studio. All mentioned bedrooms have solid chestnut wood doors. The hallway contains a doorway opening to 2 steps leading to the attic. Back in the Kitchen, the rear hallway leads to a full, unfinished basement where many system improvements were made: H-E HVAC system installed, conversion from oil to gas, removal of oil tank, extensive insulation & a sump pump & pit installed. Knob & tube wiring was replaced & electrical system brought up to code & passed inspection. The basement contains the laundry area, a workshop, plenty of well-lit storage & Bilco doors to the back yard. Exiting through the Kitchen door, you’ll love the expansive covered porch highlighted by oversized brick pavers. The porch is beautifully situated to take advantage of morning sunrises & evening sunsets with your favorite drink, people & pets. Perimeter vertical roller shades help protect from the sun & occasional rain shower. The porch leads to the level back yard with southern exposure & plenty of room to garden & enhance the lovely landscape of perennials & flowering shrubbery. The concrete driveway & paths installed in 2018 lead to an incredible 2-story garage large enough for 2.5 cars & includes a workshop area. Easy access through electric front & back doors. The 2nd floor is finished, heated & electrified! This is a perfect space for a studio, gym, home office or no-impact home-based business - check with Lansdale Borough Zoning. You’re close to Rt 202 & 309 & walking distance to Septa’s Lansdale rail station. With a Walk score of 72, you’re close to Lidl & local favorites like Stove and Tap, Round Guys Brewing Co. & Backyard Beans Coffee Co.
