Description

A gardener+GGs paradise! If "farm to table" is an important aspect of your life, look no further than this charming home at 78 North Prospect in West Norriton Township. The rear yard features a perfectly planned, manicured and maintained garden plot where one can putter, harvest and reflect to one+GGs heart's content, thanks to the combination of berry bushes, veggies, pumpkin patch, flowering plants and a custom meditation labyrinth (see Documents for a full list of plantings). A row of mature arborvitaes lends privacy to this very special place. Relaxing on the covered front porch will become a favorite pastime. That porch leads to a unique stained-glass-accented vintage front door and sidelights, providing a hint of the character to be found within, since the interior of this Craftsman-style home is as captivating as its surroundings. Original and beautifully refinished hardwood floors anchor the main level, and an abundance of energy efficient replacement windows throughout provide a light and airy ambiance. With custom millwork surrounding the fireplace (currently non-working), flanked by built-in glass front cabinetry, the Living Room is a reflection of 1920's craftsmanship. The generous proportions of this room allow for several possibilities, including a spot for family board games, puzzles, or poker night. Surrounded by windows and French doors, with one set leading to a Deck (one of two), the Dining Room features a lighted ceiling fan as well as glass doors to the adjacent Living Room. The Kitchen offers an expansive bay window above the sink, perfect for an herb garden, a ceramic tile floor, solid surface counters, oak cabinetry and electric cooking. An exit to the Deck and to that picturesque yard can be found opposite a pantry/coat closet. A carpeted stairway leads to three Bedrooms and an updated full Bath on the upper level. Two Bedrooms feature ceiling fans and, in addition to closet space, each Bedroom offers additional storage under the eaves. Laundry facilities (new Washer and Dryer are included) are found in the unfinished Basement, which could become additional living space. The home scores bonus points for a newly upgraded and rewired (2018) 220 amp electrical system (with outlets added throughout), new spray foam insulation, newer replacement windows, hard wired smoke detectors, and a Bilco door exit to the yard from the Basement level. A paver walkway leads to the one and one-half car Garage, which serves not only to house a vehicle, but for additional storage as well. Please note that there is gas on the street should the new owner wish to convert from oil. Only a relocation situation makes this 1,500 (+/-) square foot charming and character-filled home available; 78 North Prospect Avenue is set to belong to its next fortunate owner. List of plantings can be seen by clicking the Documents icon.
