Busy streets versus nature’s finest? With a Walk Score of 65, this Penn Valley home could offer a happy middle point. It’s within walking distance of Narberth trains and restaurants, but set back from the road to maintain privacy.
The house has minor historic standing. Architect Frederic Warner — who was a short-lived partner in Wallace & Warner — designed the home in 1923 for personal use. Not to worry, though. The current owners updated and maintained the house. Maybe that’s why the Colonial-Tudor, built out of stone from Rock Hill Quarry, still looks pristine.
Inside you’ll find some divided-light windows for an abundance of sunshine, as well as a simple black-and-white color scheme in the eat-in kitchen; outside, gardens and a swimming pool.
The listing notes that a wedding took place in the basement in 1947, perhaps to illustrate the below-ground’s high-ceilings.
