Welcome to 401 Baird Rd
This well-maintained and renovated, custom-built 1928 stone Colonial combines classic Main Line charm with modern updates and an unbeatable location. It sits on a huge, flat three-quarter acre lot with mature landscaping, plenty of parking, and a private, partially-fenced backyard. This coveted tree-lined neighborhood borders the serene grounds of the Merion Tribute House, with sidewalks making it a short walk to the regional rail train station, Narberth’s charming downtown, and award-winning Merion Elementary.
You’ll enter into a large center hall with an elegant turned staircase, and will immediately notice the detailed woodwork and mouldings and the beautiful hardwood floors throughout. The living room has a wood-burning fireplace and leads to a light-filled screened porch with a slate floor and a ceiling fan. The show-stopper on the main level is the beautiful modern kitchen, open to the dining room, with a double-sided gas fireplace that joins the two spaces. Kitchen highlights include granite and quartz countertops, with honed slate features, a wall of custom cabinetry and professional-style stainless steel backsplash and hood. The high-end stainless appliances include a new dishwasher and a well-maintained Viking range. A back staircase goes from the kitchen up to a sixth bedroom and full bath that could be used as an in-law or au pair suite. Rounding out the first floor is a den/office, powder room, a small mud hall at the exterior doors, and the entrance to a full basement with recreational space, plenty of storage, and a second laundry hookup.
At the top of the stairs, a window in the recessed sitting area adds natural light to the second-floor hallway. The master suite has two closets, one a walk-in, and a spectacularly renovated master bath, with a walk-in shower and two vanities. Two more good-sized bedrooms share a Jack & Jill bath. The laundry appliances on this floor are new, and the aforementioned suite in the back of the house can also be reached from this level. A third floor has two more bedrooms and a full bath. Other highlights of the home include a New Hampshire slate roof, abundant natural light and storage throughout, gas heat, updated electric, and 2-zone HVAC. Outside, the home has a curved driveway out front, and a side drive that leads to a heated attached garage.
