Charm and character are two words that are widely overused in real estate, but it is impossible to describe this property without them as charm and character are the foundation of this home. Despite being located on one of Ambler’s most sought after streets, you may have never noticed this home, as this one of a kind Carriage House is set far off of the street behind a shroud of privacy trees.
Built in 1910, 342 Euclid Avenue originally served as the carriage house for the neighboring home. Original details like the pulley in front of the hayloft door, now master bedroom window, and the gorgeous beams showcased by ten-foot ceilings on the first floor make this home truly special. The original structure is comprised of the living room, dining room, and second floor, the kitchen and first-floor bedroom with full bath were added at a later date.
This property is unique in every way, which you will immediately notice when approaching from the street. Because the horses and carts were originally kept in the rear of the property, the house is situated at the back of the lot which allows for a lovely front yard offering a sizable grassy area, sweet cottage-style garden, and flagstone patio.
The quaint barn style door opens into an entry hall with coat closet. To your left, you will find the living room which features a beautiful floor to ceiling stone fireplace with rustic mantle. The living room is open to the dining room and both spaces boast ten-foot ceilings with exposed beams, hardwood flooring, and wonderfully deep windowsills. All of the windows in these rooms have been replaced and they offer lovely green views.
Through the dining room, you will find an eat-in kitchen which offers outside access to the rear of the property and driveway. Also on the first floor, off of the entry hall, is a bedroom with an ensuite full bathroom.
The turned staircase takes you the second floor where you will find two bright bedrooms, a full bathroom, and laundry area. The second floor features newer hardwood flooring and great storage space in the eaves. Also, you will be pleased to know that the entire interior of the house has been freshly painted.
The driveway offers ample parking, although, being located a few blocks from downtown Ambler, you could easily live here without a car. Fabulous restaurants, breweries and shops, the best cooperative grocery store, a movie theater, playhouse, library, weekly farmers market, year-round festivals, the train to the city, and several bus stops are all within walking distance! Also, sought after Wissahickon School District, located within the boundaries of Lower Gwynedd Elementary, and low taxes! This is a rare opportunity to own a very special home, don’t let it slip away.
