Welcome to 525 Penn Avenue in Swarthmore, a beautifully, recently updated 4-bedroom, 2-bathroom, 2-half bathroom single-family colonial in a quiet section of Ridley Township. The charming front entrance of this brick colonial welcomes you into the home, boasting gleaming hardwood floors throughout the first and second floors of the home, tons of natural and recessed lighting, and plenty of updates throughout. The spacious living room features three large windows, freshly painted walls, and a marble gas fireplace with a beautiful mantle. The living room flows into the dining room, with more natural and recessed lighting and beautifully painted walls. The kitchen really shines, with newer oak cabinetry, a 5-burner gas range, a huge sink, updated stainless steel appliances, a large pantry, and plenty of countertop space. A gorgeously updated powder room is also featured on the main floor. Ascending the hardwood-clad staircase onto the second floor, you will see the generously sized hallway bathroom, with its double vanity with oak cabinetry, and beautifully tiled floors and walls. It also has a heated jacuzzi tub! Three spacious bedrooms are featured on this level, perfect for guest quarters, children's rooms, or offices. The fourth bedroom is the roomy Master with a beautiful Master Bathroom with a standing shower and tiled floors and walls. Ample amounts of closet space and tons of natural light round out the bedroom level. The basement has also been finished for that extra bit of space, perfect for an entertainment area, and is currently functioning as a theater room. There is a separate space for laundry, and also a wet bar. Finally, there is an additional powder room in the basement for that extra bit of convenience. The backyard is also a sight to behold: a perfectly level and spacious yard, which happens to be fully fenced-in. A beautiful deck overlooks the yard that has a natural gas hookup for those perfect BBQ afternoons! Two storage sheds and playgrounds are present in the backyard, ideal for those seeking additional storage and entertainment for their little ones! This home also happens to offer the type of convenience rarely seen: not only is it close to Downtown Media and Swarthmore Borough, but it is a short drive to MacDade Blvd, 476, I-95, Route-1, Philadelphia Airport, SEPTA lines, and so much more.
