Welcome to 115 Glenwood Rd
This Merion Station home has wonderful curb appeal, with beautiful stone work and gorgeous slate roof, but that’s only the beginning for this well-maintained beauty. Classic Main Line character details are everywhere inside this home, with its wide doorways, vintage molding, and original hardwood floors throughout. Contemporary buyers will appreciate that the home’s original charm has been complemented with modern updates like natural gas heating and high velocity central AC, replaced windows, and updated kitchen and baths. The center hall floor plan features a generous foyer that includes the staircase and a powder room with amazing Venetian plaster walls. The living room on the left has a built-in bookshelf and cabinet, and a fireplace that the owners converted to a cozy wood-burning stove. A pane-glass door leads to the rebuilt sunroom/family room with walls of windows and original stonework. The light and bright dining room has space for a large table and leads to a cheerful kitchen with beautiful inset cabinetry, quartz counters, farmhouse sink, step-in pantry, induction stove and oven, and stainless steel appliances. A mudroom area near the back door has a built-in bench with storage, and hooks for coats and bags.
Four large bedrooms on the second floor give you options to house family members or home offices. Poised to serve as a primary bedroom, one of the front bedrooms has an ensuite full bath with glass shower, renovated in 2015. The other three bedrooms share an updated full hall bath with double vanity. A rebuilt balcony over the sunroom provides second floor outdoor space, and is accessible by the bedrooms on that side of the house. The private third floor offers space to retreat, with two more bedrooms (one currently used as an office) and a remodeled hall bath with double vanity, along with four areas for hidden under-eaves storage. The lower level provides plenty of additional storage space, laundry, plus potential for even more play or hangout space if desired. Outside, there’s lots of room to entertain on the deck off the kitchen, and on the paver patio, as well as room to play on the flat yard of this nicely landscaped lot. The yard also has a bicycle shed and a garden shed, plus a long private driveway that wraps around to the back of the house. A screen of beautiful evergreens fence the property and adds privacy to two sides.
It’s hard to overstate how wonderful this sidewalk-lined street and walkable, friendly neighborhood really are. Award-winning Merion Elementary sits a short walk away in one direction, and, just blocks away in another, is Narberth’s beloved downtown of shops and restaurants, with a regional rail station that is just three stops outside of Philadelphia. If you're looking to move right into an updated home, in a fantastic neighborhood and convenient walk-to location within the Lower Merion School District, put this one on your weekend's must-see list!
