This is it, the Ambler home that you have been waiting for. Fabulous open concept, tons of natural light, great updates, amazing back yard, and all for an incredible price. 229 Highland Avenue has been well maintained and is in absolute move in condition.
As you approach the home, you are greeted by a sweet front porch and beautifully established Japanese Maple tree. Inside, you enter into a spacious living and dining room, bathed in natural light with a vaulted ceiling, architectural details and recessed lighting. This lovely space is open to both the kitchen, and the hallway above. Through the dining area, you’ll find a thoughtfully designed kitchen, offering tons of cabinetry and storage space, plenty of work space on the counters, a bar area, glass tile backsplash, stainless steel appliances, the perfect spot to tuck away trash cans and the like, and more.
Upstairs you will find three nicely sized bedrooms with ample closet space, a full hall bath and access to attic storage.
Downstairs on the lower level is a fantastic family room. This space was designed for entertaining and features a bar, complete with built in beverage fridge, and surround sound. When this room was renovated, extra measures were taken to sound proof the space, including using sound proof insulation and vibration dampening brackets in the ceiling. There is also access to additional storage in this room. Adjacent to the family room is a huge laundry/work room, which includes a conveniently located powder room and access to the rear yard.
Once outside, you are guaranteed to fall in love with the back yard. The size is just perfect, and the space is private. Immediately outside the back door you will find a large patio, which easily accommodates dining, lounging and cooking areas. The yard is level and completely fenced in, perfect for containing two and four legged friends. There are lovely beds, filled with bulbs waiting to bloom into beautiful flowers this Spring, a fire pit, and nice sized shed for storage. While fenced, the rear of the property offers additional privacy in the way of a bamboo ‘privacy wall’. While some may cringe at the thought of bamboo, as it is known to travel, this bamboo was installed the right way, in a retained bed with root(shoot) barrier, so it grows only where you want it to.
229 Highland also features a newer, high efficiency heater, central air conditioning, off street parking for two cars and more. The location is incredible; sought after Wissahickon School District, and just a few blocks from downtown Ambler. Living in Ambler is a true joy, as not only is it a wonderful, tight knit community, but there is so much to do. Ambler boasts fabulous restaurants and bars, shopping and services, annual festivals and parades, seasonal farmers’ market, a cooperative grocery store is on its way, there are several great parks, a library and more! Did I mention that this is all within walking distance???
This home is a special opportunity, one that you do not want to miss. For more information, or a private showing, please contact me, Allison Wolf. 215-704-9888 | [email protected]
