Stunning classic stone colonial with 3 bedrooms, 2.5 ~ baths, in the most desirable section of Brandywine Hills, it was built in 1940 with all the quality of a bygone era set on a double lot. Subtle elegance and charm abound in this beautiful home. The house is just over 2,400 square feet per a private appraisal, with at least two prior additions and a walk-out basement. The kitchen was recently remodeled with beautiful custom cabinetry and granite countertops leading to the breakfast room and family room that has a side entrance to the new porch tucked away for a private place to enjoy this scenic lot or have breakfast outdoors as it is just a step from the breakfast room. Upstairs the master bedroom is large for the era with two closets and its own private bathroom with custom tile walk-in shower. The hall full bath is also recently remodeled with a tub-shower combination and custom tile work. The second bedroom has a lovely addition with exposed stone from the living room fireplace it makes a wonderful retreat for a children's playroom, reading room, or nursery. This home is spacious beyond your belief, but the lot is where the potential is greatest ~ you could expand this house three times the current size and still be within the legal property setbacks. With two fireplaces and gorgeous hardwoods, it is truly in move-in condition with so much potential and value. The family and bonus room off the living room could be used for so much, and more than one at a time - bonus room which could be used as an office, game room with a pool table, playroom, or art studio which has a section with exposed stone which is the den. Situated in Brandywine Hills you have the added benefit of City amenities including trash, leaf-removal, and snow-removal. Be sure to put this property on the top of your list of ~must-sees~ and call your REALTOR now. This splendid historically reminiscent house is priced to sell. Walk to multiple places of worship is short and convenient. Comparable homes in pristine condition on smaller lots have sold upwards of $500,000 - instant equity for you, and true move-in condition.
