1200 ANDOVER RD,
Designer owned home: Wynnewood Stone Center Hall colonial tastefully renovated while preserving original. One is immediately smitten with this sweet home! Admiring the front elevation, appreciate the elegant original details and the symmetry with the front door flanked by lead glass panels and bay windows topped with copper finishes. Surrounded by lush vegetation and three amazing sycamore trees this corner lot makes the home feel very private and gives it nice curb appeal. The private driveway leads to the one-car garage with additional 2-car parking in the driveway. Great first impression upon entering the home as the entry opens to the beautifully curved original staircase. To the right find the wallpapered dining room with original wainscoting and crown molding, built in corner cabinets and beautiful bay window with custom window treatments. To the left you will see the spacious living room, which has the same elegant wainscoting and crown molding as the dining room, plus wood burning fireplace and patio doors that lead to a serene landscape enclosed flagstone patio for outdoor dining and lounging. The kitchen will not disappoint; upscale stainless steel appliances, custom cabinetry, island seating, quartzite countertops and as in the rest of the house, beautiful designer light fixtures. The kitchen has great circulation and one can enter it from the dining room, descend to it from the secondary stairs or enter directly from the driveway. Just inside the kitchen door from the drive is a “mudroom" with cubbies for coats and bags. Also off the kitchen a hallway directs you to the powder room, entrance to the home office or door to the lower level. The home office is adjacent to the outdoor flagstone patio so it can easily be used as a family room as well. Proceed to the second floor to find an owner's suite, three additional bedrooms and two full baths. The owner's suite is compact but cleverly designed to accommodate a dressing area with a vanity and en suite full bath and extra closet space. All other three bedrooms are spacious and bright. An oval shaped hall bath is situated close to two of the additional bedrooms. The back bedroom has an en suite full bath. Last but not least is the lower level; a great floor for an au-pair or in-law suite, it has a family room with a wood-burning fireplace, a full bedroom and full bath as well as the laundry area, ample closets for dry storage and a separate entrance to the driveway. This beautifully designed home is close to Center City commute, public transport, local schools, shops and restaurants, nature trails and parks. Please note that the dining room pendant, office and lower-level shelves as well as the medicine cabinet and mirror in the powder room are excluded.
