Landmark property and treasured home since 1968. Featured on the Swarthmore Walking Tour, it one of the first homes in the area built of poured concrete and accented with decorative tiles. Designed by local merchant Howard Green and built by Turner Construction in 1906, this home offers period details such as pocket doors, hardwood flooring, wood-burning fireplaces, tile inlays,built-in cabinetry and even an ice box! Builders and engineers will appreciate the solid construction. Designers and decorators will enjoy bringing to life the many details of this lovely home. An open patio and large covered porches are accessible through several doors, making indoor and outdoor entertaining a breeze. If you don’t need for 8 bedrooms convert the third floor, with its own full bathroom, to an entertainment area, caregiver/guest suite, art or fitness studio. There is certainly a lot of space to work with! Decades of gardening bring perennial enjoyment in a yard bursting with color. Each year, neighbors anticipate the blooming of the Cherry Blossoms, which line Harvard Avenue. Look closely at this home and you will notice that even though it needs cosmetic upgrades, it has been well cared for–walls and woodwork are in good shape, with the price per square foot well below market comparables. Served by Wallingford Swarthmore School District and ideally located to Swarthmore College with Scott Arboretum, public transportation and the town center. No doubt this home will offer years of enjoyment to the next lucky custodians who have the vision to make it their own.
