Classic and charming 1930s Craftsman-style home with a welcoming Front Porch overlooking a quiet, safe and walkable neighborhood street in the heart of the Manoa section of Haverford Township. With a little TLC and updating, this wonderful and versatile home will be a shining star in the community for another 90 years. The first floor consists of a Grand Front Porch reminiscent of a much simpler time when neighbors greeted each other and stopped over to chat. Inside the front door, all of the original hardwood floors have been uncovered and are ready to be refinished to their original beauty. The large Living Room features a stunning stone Fireplace and plenty of windows for natural light. The homey covered radiators throughout the house provide a cozy and lasting warmth on the coldest days. The large formal Dining Room features a built-in corner china cabinet. The refinished Kitchen is just begging to be expanded into the Dining Room to bring it into the 21st Century. Down the hall are the timeless full Bath, the Main Bedroom with three closets and the second Bedroom that has been converted into a practical Den/Home Office with glass doors leading to the Screened Porch, Deck and Rear Yard. The second floor consists of a charming Reading Loft Landing, two large Bedrooms, a center room that has a Half Bath waiting to be expanded into a second full modern Bath, and several hall closets and walk-in attic storage spaces. The Laundry is in the unfinished Basement with high ceilings, a perimeter drain system, furnace, hot water heater and A/C unit, and a workshop area. Gas heat and hot water, zoned A/C units (2018), replacement windows, newer roof (2005) and a great 2 car detached garage complete this terrific house. A short walk to the Manoa Shopping Center with its grocery shopping, hardware store, services and local eateries, and close to schools, hospital, YMCA, the Skatium, golf and public transportation for easy commuting into Philadelphia and the surrounding suburbs, the Airport and the Sports Complex.
