Description

This property is no longer available to rent or to buy. This description is from January 05, 2022
Welcome to 243 Harvard Ave! Cute & fabulous is an understatement! Live large in this classic Bungalow style home in an awesome Collingswood location with terrific walkability to everything! Banks of windows in the front enclosed porch provide lots of natural light, and this space is perfect for relaxing or to use in a variety of ways. A tray ceiling adds lots of character to the living room space, and gorgeous hardwood floors graces most of the main floor. You'll love the versatility of the wonderful dining room, which is spacious & located off the kitchen, and features a breakfast bar & stool seating. The kitchen was nicely updated and offers stainless appliances, white and gray cabinetry, plenty of prep & storage space and a tile backsplash. The main bedroom has plenty of clever built in cabinetry to utilize space. The second bedroom also is a good size. Both bedrooms share a nicely updated bathroom with bead-board walls, tile flooring & white vanity. One huge benefit is a full basement, home to your laundry, utilities plus tons of storage! A nice relaxing patio is off the back of the home, which overlooks an easy care lawn with a shed. New HVAC was installed in 2020, and new wiring & electric upgraded to 150 amp completed in 2017. Let's talk location! Right down the street is Cooper River Park and within a two-block walk you are on Haddon Ave where you have coffee shops, a brewery, acclaimed dining of all kinds, the Pop Shop, the Collingswood Farmers Market, and the Patco Speedline to Philly - you will love the walkability to all this and much more.

    "Great commute to the city. By far the closest suburb to philly with great restaurants. We love Zeppoli, Hearthside, Porch & Proper, Bistro Di Marino, Primos, Kitchen Consigliere, Arctic Freeze, Constellation Collective, SAGAMI, Donkeys Place & Crabs plus. It’s also super convenient to cherry hill mall and wegmans. I can’t wait for the new Costco to open up! The draw for us was walking our dog in Knights Park- it’s like a nature walk every day!"

There is a Patco station located in town that provides cheap ($5.50 round trip) transportation into the city as well. Uber/Lyft services are decently priced. "

    "This is a a very progressive, vibrant community in every sense of the word. New, top-notch restaurants align Haddon Avenue....the many parks keep people moving. Pets are welcome. The residents are very friendly, educated and down-to-earth. The vibe is simply awesome for an older suburb of Philadelphia. The PATCO hi speed line whisks people into in center city Philadelphia in ten minutes. Can't say enough about this older suburb. Taxes are a little high though. "
