Whether you are looking for one floor living or just the opportunity to find a single house in Ambler Borough for under $300k, look no further as 226 Overlook Road has all that to offer, and then some. This charming property has been wonderfully maintained and is in absolute move in condition.
If you have been in other Capes in Haywood Park, you will likely be surprised by the layout of 226, as it is rather unique to the neighborhood. Once inside, you will be pleased to see the open concept that greets you. The wall that typically separates the kitchen and dining room has been opened up and there is a lovely bar connecting the two rooms. The eye is immediately drawn through the first floor into the living room at the far end (which is typically a bedroom in these homes). The space is vast, offering great connectivity, making it ideal for entertaining.
If you enjoy cooking, you will love the amount of counter space and gas cooking. The kitchen offers outdoor access to a covered patio, the perfect location for grilling and al fresco meals. Back inside, the dining room is very large, able to accommodate a sizable table, however, with the open concept, one could easily have a smaller dining area and a huge living room. If so desired, a third bedroom could be created in the living room space with the addition of some drywall and a door.
Down the hall off of the living room is a first floor bedroom, full bath, and large storage closet. Upstairs, the second floor offers a lovely bedroom with built-in storage and swoon worthy window seat, along with another full bath, tons of closet space (including cedar closet) and a bright sitting room. This sitting room is a fantastic space that could work as an office, library, playroom, studio space, you name it. There is hardwood flooring under the carpet in this area, similar to what is exposed in the bedroom down the hall.
The basement is unfinished but offers great work space, a laundry area and tons of storage. The ceilings are high and the basement was waterproofed years ago and comes with a transferable warranty.
Outside, the yard and patio are the perfect place to relax and enjoy a beautiful day. The perennials will bring you joy from Spring through Fall and the detached garage with electric offers a place to park or a fantastic workshop.
Some of my favorite things about this house include the abundance of natural light, the original random width hardwood flooring, the open kitchen, the charming patio with an arbor that will boast gorgeous clematis blooms all summer and the thoughtfully planted garden that will keep you in fresh cut flowers for most months on end. Also, you will enjoy the central air in the warmer months and the benefit of replacement windows in the winter months.
All of this in fantastic Ambler Borough and sought after Haywood Park! Excellent Wissahickon Schools, extremely reasonable taxes, as well as, walkability to downtown Ambler, several parks and more, make this a no-brainer. Come visit 226 Overlook today!
