Description

Be prepared to fall in love! Amazing opportunity to own 1259 Fairacres Road in the established charming neighborhood of Rydal! This timeless, elegant home is nestled on the former site of the John W. Pepper Estate, a Gilded Age mansion with expansive gardens where a large remnant of the garden remains today! This breathtaking garden includes two large walls, one smaller wall, and a gazebo, all of which have been recently renovated to ensure that they last another hundred-plus years. Step inside to find gleaming hardwood floors, neutral paint, and a completely rehabbed show stopper kitchen! The eat-in kitchen offers a dedicated area for a full dining room table, as well as bar seating, stainless steel appliances, light cabinets, granite countertops, chair rail, and recessed lighting. Each room is flooded with natural light, creating cohesive and bright living spaces. The formal living room centers around an exposed brick mantel fireplace and has french door access to the back patio. Finishing off the main level is a convenient half bath. Upstairs, the spacious primary bedroom has ample closet space as well as an ensuite bath with a walk-in tile shower. The remaining bedrooms are spacious and bright, and share access to a full hallway bath. This home is nestled on a quiet block within a great neighborhood and is the perfect place to raise your family. The location is superb, in the award-winning Abington school district, close to both the Rydal and Noble train stations, Abington Art Center, Wawa, Trader Joe+GGs, Starbucks, Whole Foods, and minutes from downtown Jenkintown and the diverse local restaurants and shopping it offers. It also has easy access to numerous parks and green spaces, including nearby Alverthorpe Park (only open to Abington residents). This gem will not last long, call to schedule an appointment today!
