If there’s one word that could be said to describe Narberth better than any other, it’s “neighborly.” Residents adore its small-town feel and down-home charm.
And in a town that’s full of down-home charm, there are few homes that get down more than this handsome stone Colonial on a cul-de-sac in the borough’s northern reaches.
If you go to tour the place in person, chances are you may not even make it past the front porch, as you’ll be sorely tempted to just have the agent go pour you a tall glass of iced tea or make your favorite cocktail and then just sit there with you in the coolness of your outdoor front room.
But maybe, out of gratitude, you might offer to serve a drink to the agent instead, in which case you’ll find a spacious kitchen that’s up to the task. We don’t care what the folks at Zillow say about the effect of colors on house values, we’ve long loved sunny yellow kitchens, and this one’s positively beaming, with red, yellow and orange mosaic tile backsplashes offering a complementary accent. The butcher-block counters are also made for effortless food preparation, the farmhouse sink and cabinetry add a touch of rustic charm, and the appliances are top-notch too.
The family room’s as bright as the kitchen, thanks to large windows and French doors that open out onto the rear patio. The living room has a classic fireplace, and there’s a formal dining room as well.
Upstairs, you’ll find a master suite with an all-new en suite bath, three more bedrooms, and a hall bath.
And if you feel like soaking up the outdoors but not saying “Hi!” to your neighbors, the spacious rear patio and back yard are at your service.
Like most everyplace else in Narberth, this home is a short walk from absolutely everything, so you’ll get plenty of chances to get to know your neighbors as you go about your business as well.
