309 E. Butler Avenue is a wonderful three story stone home in the heart of Ambler Borough, boasting a fabulous layout and tasteful updates throughout.
As you approach the home, you are greeted by a charming front porch which offers the perfect place to relax and people watch. This porch is THE place to be for the Annual Ambler Holiday Parade. The size allows you to entertain plenty of guests and the elevation offers a birds-eye view of the parade route.
Inside, you will fall in love the abundance of natural light, high ceilings, deep windowsills, and neutral color palate. Entering the home, you will find a spacious living room with recessed lighting and views into both the kitchen and dining room. There is a conveniently located coat closet and tons of windows, including a sweet bump out offering a cozy spot to sit and read, or the perfect place to fill with plants.
The living room opens into the nicely sized dining room which features a gorgeous exposed stone wall, built-in shelving, another widow seat, and recessed lighting. The dining room is completely open to the kitchen, perfect for entertaining.
Get ready to fall in love with this kitchen, as it has everything that you’ve dreamed of. Let’s start with the size, this kitchen is very spacious, offering tons of counter space, an unbelievable amount of storage, including a pantry area, and pull out appliance closet. If you like to cook, you will appreciate the flow and order of the perfect working triangle between the sink, range, and refrigerator. Chef’s will also appreciate the gas cooking and pot filler (I know you’ve always wanted one). You will also love the stainless steel appliances, quartz countertops, stainless steel farm style sink with a window above, boasting a deep marble sill, the perfect spot for your indoor herb garden.
Off of the kitchen is a convenient mudroom offering a place to stash coats, shoes, and the like. This space is extremely useful, as it is right off the driveway and likely where you will enter the home each day. Off the mudroom, you will find the powder room/laundry room.
Upstairs, the second floor offers three bright bedrooms and a hall bathroom. The master bedroom is roomy and offers two closets, one of which is a walk-in. The other two bedrooms are also nicely sized and the tastefully done hall bath offers dual vanities and a linen closet.
The third floor presents two lovely bedrooms and another full bathroom. The larger of the two bedrooms is rather sizable and would also make a great lounge area/playroom/office. Due to the roofline, these rooms all feature beautiful angles and darling little nooks.
Down below, the basement is partially finished offering three different spaces. The main room is used for entertainment and can be easily separated from the adjacent room by the large pocket doors. There is also a great space for a home gym and a separate room for storage.
Outside, the rear yard is completely fenced in and boasts a huge paver patio. There is plenty of yard, as well, offering room for play and gardening. The large shed will remain, and if you’re a fan of fresh eggs, the chicken coop can stay, as well. There is a secondary storage shed around the corner and also a corner of raised beds, ideal for veggies and flowers.
Other important details include central air, new roof in 2018, replacement windows, and a huge driveway, allowing for parking of 4+ cars. When entertaining, the parking lot across Butler is very convenient for your guests.
This home is just blocks away from wonderful restaurants and breweries, boutique shops, a movie theater, live playhouse, the library, seasonal farmers market, year-round festivals, and more! That said, you don’t even have to leave your block to have a good time as this is a very tight knit neighborhood, known for the Progressive Halloween Porch Parties and Parade celebrations! If you’d like to lessen your impact on the environment, you could easily live here and hardly ever drive as the train station and bus stop are both within walking distance AND you have an incredible cooperative grocery store two blocks away! In addition to that, this home is located in award winning Wissahickon School District, within the boundaries of Lower Gwynedd Elementary.
This is a fantastic home in an amazing town, don’t miss this opportunity! For more information, or to schedule a private showing, please contact me, Allison Wolf. 215-704-9888 | [email protected]
