Usually, when you hear the term “Cape Cod home,” the image that pops into your head is one of a charming little saltbox of a house with dormer windows peeking through its peaked roof.

More:

This handsome home in Villanova has those dormers. But there the similarities to the traditional Cape Cod home end, for this home has loads of interior space, a good chunk of it located in a newer addition at the back.

The spaciousness hits you the moment you step into the foyer and look to your right and left. To the right is a large, light-filled living room with a handsome marble fireplace, while on the left, a formal dining room exudes grace. It too gets lots of natural light through its large window.

Speaking of windows, that addition at the back contains a ton of them, both in the walls and in the overhead skylights. The huge open space combines a breakfast room/sun room and family room, all with a radiant heat tile floor. A pass-through window from the up-to-date kitchen allows you to serve family and friends easily.

Behind the addition lies a large stone terrace and a level, lovingly landscaped backyard that features a koi pond with a waterfall.

There’s also a billiard room on the main floor with its own stone fireplace.

Two of this home’s five bedrooms are on the main floor. One of them has an adjoining bath. A hallway leads from the bedroom wing to a small slate patio out front. Three more bedrooms and two bathrooms are upstairs.

This home offers convenience along with plenty of space: it’s close to the Blue Route and a short drive from Villanova, St. Davids and Wayne.
