25 S Spring Garden Street, offers a boatload of living space, a charming front porch, nicely sized outdoor area, and is located just one block from downtown Ambler, the train and everything your heart desires, WOW! The home is unassuming from the street, as it appears to be your standard twin, but once inside, you will be amazed at the amount of living space.
Through the front door, you enter into what would have been a welcoming parlor when the home was originally built in 1920, but now it is more functional as a foyer, sitting room and catch all for our everyday items. Beyond the foyer, the first floor offers a huge living room, dining room, family/play room and kitchen. Be sure to take note of the fabulous pocket doors that separate the living and dining rooms. These doors are original to the home and are in perfect working condition. All rooms are large in scale offering a lot of options, high ceilings, and tons of beautiful natural light. After the pocket doors, my next favorite feature of the home is the rear staircase. Yes, this twin home is so spacious that it offers both a front and a rear staircase! The front, more formal staircase is seen in the foyer, while the rear staircase is accessed from the family room (or dining room, depending on how you choose to utilize the space). There is so much space on the first floor, that the kitchen could be combined with the adjacent room making for an incredible kitchen, while still leaving you with a huge living room, formal dining room, and front room!
Upstairs, you will find four large bedrooms (which could easily be turned back into five), one with a pass through, perfect for siblings or perhaps used as a bedroom with adjoining dressing room/closet. The master bedroom is located at the rear of the home and is very large. It offers a closet and the existing wardrobes will remain. The bathroom is also located upstairs and offers plenty of space, as well as the laundry. The second floor is so spacious that it could easily accommodate a master suite, another full bath, laundry room, you name it.
There is outdoor living space in both the front and rear of the home. The coveted front porch is a must, particularly when living so close to town! Out back, there is a patio off the kitchen, large mulched area with a stone path and naturalized area beyond the fencing.
As mentioned, this location is primo! Close to everything that Ambler has to offer including restaurants, shops, a theater AND playhouse, annual festivals, Saturday farmers’ market, coming soon Weaver’s Way grocery store, and more! The Ambler train station is just blocks away and all major routes of travel are a few minutes by car. Don’t forget about the excellent school district and low taxes!
If you have an eye and budget for design, this home offers endless possibilities for a savvy buyer who is willing to put in some sweat equity. This is a unique opportunity that you do not want to miss. Showings begin Friday, June 2nd, at 5:30pm.
