If I had to choose just a few words to describe 259 Highland Avenue, they would be custom, immaculate, quality, high-end, and meticulous. This stunning, turnkey home has been updated, has a fantastic flow, and offers great curb appeal.
When this home was purchased, it was an average, builder grade, newer construction home. The owners bought this house because they fell in love with the town and its walkability, and over time, they have transformed the home to meet their high standards. With no intention of moving, no expense was spared and every aspect of the $300k+ renovation was done with thoughtful consideration and refinement.
As you approach the home, you will fall in love with the curb appeal. You are greeted by a custom driveway with paver inlay and border, carriage style garage door, beautiful James Hardie shake style siding, and charming front porch.
Inside, you will be wowed by the gorgeous hardwood flooring and spacious rooms. You are welcomed by a lovely, sun-filled living room with bay alcove. To your left is the coat closet; note the automated light as you open the door. Beyond the living room, the hardwood flooring extends into the roomy dining room. You can access the kitchen through the living room and dining room, making this a fantastic space for entertaining.
The kitchen is the heart of the home, offering space for more than one cook and plenty of guests to gather. The handmade cabinetry was custom built by Dilworth and is absolutely stunning. There is an abundance of storage space including upper and lower cabinets, an oversized center island, coffee bar/workstation, and an incredible lighted pantry. The doors to the pantry, basement, and laundry/powder room are solid core, mission style doors that were carefully selected to match the cabinetry. The door with the frosted glass window leads to the laundry area, powder room, and interior access to the garage. Other impressive features in the kitchen include quartz countertops, undermount sink, stainless steel appliances, under cabinet lighting, “hidden” outlets so as not to interfere with the custom backsplash, RO system at the sink and fridge, and custom stained glass detail over the kitchen sink. The window over the sink looks into a spacious family room boasting a gas fireplace, skylights, and sliding glass door to a wonderful screened in porch.
Upstairs, the master bedroom is spacious and bright offering hardwood flooring, two custom closets, and a spa-like ensuite bath. The bathroom boasts plenty of storage in the custom made cabinets, quartz countertop, heated floor, and sizable walk-in shower complete with overhead rain style and handheld shower heads, as well as bench seating.
Two additional bedrooms with roomy closets and ceiling fans, spacious hall bath, and linen closet complete the second floor.
Down below, the basement offers tons of space, high ceilings, and endless possibilities. The basement has been dry during their entire ownership, even during the storms in 2011 when Ambler lost power for five days. The heating ducts are closed now, but present if one wanted to finish the space.
Now, getting back to that screened in porch… If you enjoy the outdoors, you are going to love the yard and outdoor space at 259. The screened in porch is the perfect place to enjoy your morning coffee and evening conversation. The porch features a ceiling fan and opens onto a deck, both constructed with no maintenance Trex decking. The deck steps down onto a paver patio with sidewalks connecting to the fence gates on either side of the house as well as the shed in the rear. The yard is fully fenced and totally private. Having an outdoor space this sweet in the borough is an absolute dream.
The flow of this home, inside and out, make it ideal for entertaining while offering a warm and comfortable feel. Be sure to note the thoughtful design elements like the beautiful Jeld-Wen doors throughout the interior, Pella exterior doors (front, slider, and storm doors), Marvin Infinity windows (all with custom wood blinds or cellular shades), James Hardie fiber cement siding (with additional insulation beneath), tankless hot water heater, water softener, and more. Even the small details have been thought of, for example, all of the vents covers, outlet and light switch covers coordinate with one another.
Located less than half a mile from downtown Ambler, this is an incredible opportunity. Walk, bike, or drive to fantastic restaurants, the theater, shopping and services, beautiful new grocery store, awesome annual festivals, the farmers’ market and more! With the train .5 mile away and the entrance to route 309 one mile in the other direction, the location is ideal for commuting.
Very rarely does a home like this become available in Ambler Borough, do not delay. For more information, or a private showing, please contact me, Allison Wolf. 215-704-9888 | [email protected]
