If you’re one of those house-hunters who’s looking for modern convenience and comfort and that old-time neighborly feel, this fabulous renovated Victorian on Schwenksville’s main drag gives you both in one package.

More:

If you have a large brood in tow, so much the better, for this home’s six bedrooms can handle your whole family.

The total makeover this home got gives it a spacious living room, a huge kitchen with espresso wood cabinets and all the latest stainless steel appliances, and a dining room on the side that gets extra character from an exposed remnant of this home’s original exterior wall.

The upstairs bedrooms all feature new carpeting and share a tastefully updated hall bath. A second full bathroom can be found at the far end of the laundry room on the rear of the main floor.

There’s a storage shed in the back with plenty of room for your stuff as well. And if all this isn’t enough, the partially updated basement offers more room for storage, recreation, or what-have-you.

Feel free to invite your friends over to show off your new home; they should all be able to park in the extra-long driveway.

When you want to get out, this home offers more than just its own backyard. The Perkiomen Trail is right across the street, the historic Pennypacker Mills house museum lies just across Perkiomen Creek, and you’re a short walk away from both the Schwenksville shopping district and Schwenksville Elementary School. Hop on your bike or put on your hiking boots, get out there and explore! There’s lots of beauty and history along the banks of the Perkiomen.
