322 Highland Avenue is a charming, turn of the century, Colonial home, located on a sought after Ambler Borough block, across the street from Pickering Field. You will fall in love with the huge front porch, great layout, numerous updates, and abundance of natural light. These fantastic features are complemented by important must haves such as central air conditioning, 1st floor laundry room and bath, a partially finished basement, and fantastic outdoor space.
Upon arrival, you will be smitten with the welcoming front porch. A front porch is a key element to living in the Borough, as it offers not only a place to relax and entertain, but a place to engage with your neighbors, as Ambler is a big walking town. It is also a great place to watch the games at Pickering Field, particularly if you have a little one on the field.
The front door opens into a bright dining room (or living room, depending on how you choose to use the space), offering a wood burning fireplace, flanked by character rich windows and built-in benches, a coat closet, and hardwood flooring that carries into the living room. The living room is spacious yet cozy and boasts great natural light.
The living room leads into a lovely, well designed kitchen. The bright kitchen offers a ton of counter space, including a place for casual meals and conversation, tons of storage (including a pantry area), and a great workflow. You will also find the all important window over the sink, gas cooking, stainless steel appliances, recessed lighting, and more. Off the kitchen, you will find a conveniently located mudroom which boasts a new washer and dryer (2020), and a great place to store coats, bags, and the like, as well as, access to the rear patio and fenced yard. The first floor also offers a beautiful full bathroom with lovely stone and tile detail, farmhouse style sink, flooring, and door, and a walk-in shower with rain shower head.
Upstairs, the bountiful natural light continues and you will find three nicely sized bedrooms and a hall bathroom. The master bedroom offers two closets and hardwood flooring. The other two bedrooms are carpeted, but there is original hardwood flooring beneath. All three bedrooms offer multiple windows and ceiling fans. The hall bathroom was recently renovated offering tasteful white and natural wood tones. Through the front bedroom you will find a staircase that leads to the finished third floor. This floor offers one large room that currently serves as a home office, but could easily be a workout area, play room, or just additional storage. A mini-split system offers heating and cooling for the third floor, creating its own zone, separate from the rest of the house.
Down below, the basement is accessed from the kitchen and also has a side door for exterior access. The front room is finished offering great additional living space. In the rear, there is a separate unfinished area allowing for plenty of storage.
The outdoor space at 322 is so sweet, you will undoubtedly begin to envision enjoying it in warmer months. There is a travertine patio off of the house, the fenced yard is a perfect size and has a lovely sense of privacy, particularly when the specimen trees and perennial plantings begin to fill in. To top it off, there is a one car detached garage with automatic door and overhead storage.
322 is within walking distance to downtown Ambler offering fabulous restaurants and breweries, great shops, a movie theater and playhouse, library, a seasonal farmers market, year-round festivals, and the best grocery store around. Also, access to the Wissahickon Watershed and Green Ribbon Trail is just a few blocks away. If you commute, the train is also within walking distance, and access to 309 and major routes of transportation are minutes away. If that isn’t enough, this home is located in sought after Wissahickon School District!
