418 Haywood Road boasts tons of natural light, clean lines, and an open floor plan. Located in the Haywood Park section of Ambler, this mid-century split level home really maximizes its square footage, offering great living space including three bedrooms, one full and one half baths, open living room/dining room, kitchen, lower level family room, and a bonus sunroom off the back that most Haywood splits do not offer.
From the moment that you walk through the front door, you will feel at home. A wall of windows creates an extremely bright space and the vaulted ceiling gives the already spacious room an even bigger feel. The floor plan is open, with the living room flowing into the dining room, and then into the well appointed kitchen. The living room is also open to the second floor, separated by mid-century style shelving. Both the living room and dining room offer hardwood flooring. The wood burning stove is a highlight, providing a cozy environment in the colder months. The kitchen is nicely sized and offers an abundance of storage, ample counter space, and gas cooking. The addition of a convenient coffee bar allows no space to go unutilized.
Down a short flight of stairs off the dining room, is the family room. This is another bright and spacious room, featuring built in shelving and access to the covered porch and rear yard. Through the family room, you will find a wonderful window filled sunroom, the perfect spot for curling up with a good book and growing happy plants. With great views of the yard, it is also an ideal place to sit and watch the perennial gardens come to life. The lower level also provides access to a powder room, the laundry room, storage area, and oversized garage.
Upstairs, you’ll find a bright and airy master bedroom with great closet space. Two additional bedrooms are nicely sized, also offering great light and ample closet space. The hall bathroom features a linen closet. There are hardwood floors throughout the second floor, however, some areas are currently under carpet.
Outside, you will find a lovely fenced yard brimming with carefully selected flowering perennials and trees. There is a covered rear porch, the perfect place to sit and enjoy a nice rain shower. A storage shed offers plenty of room for all of your outdoor tools and toys.
Last but not least, is the huge attached garage. It runs the entire length of the house, offering a surprising amount of space, electric, and access into the house. You can easily use your garage for parking AND as a storage/work space. There is also a large crawlspace accessible from the garage that offers plentiful storage.
