This home’s got it all – a great location, gorgeous stone construction, a spacious backyard, and new interior updates.

Our favorite part is the charming front porch, which looks like it belongs on a movie set and would be a great spot to sit and read with a glass of wine in hand (are we getting ahead of ourselves?). From the front porch, enter into the center hall where you will be surrounded by both the living and dining rooms on either side. Beyond these rooms is a renovated kitchen and breakfast area. Read more »

Main Line Monday: A “Tree House” in Berwyn for $675K

3 Spoonwood Circle, Berywyn, Pa. 19312 | TREND images via Benjamin Hardy Real Estate

One of the best parts about the Philadelphia suburbs is their ability to make you feel isolated from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, without actually being isolated from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Who doesn’t love to come home to a little peace and quiet at the end of the day?

Take this home in Berwyn, for example. Sat on a quiet cul-de-sac and surrounded by nature, it is the epitome of a secluded oasis.

A large, second-level deck envelops the front of the house, where homeowners can enjoy their morning coffee while listening to the sounds of the nearby creek. Read more »

Main Line Monday: Modern History in Merion Station for $825K

79 E Wynnewood Rd., Merion Station, Pa. 19066 | TREND images via BHHS Fox & Roach

Colonial here, colonial there, colonial everywhere! The Main Line is a hub for 20th-century colonials, so it’s not exactly surprising that we found this one for sale in Merion Station.

What is surprising about this colonial, however, is its beauty. From its exquisitely maintained exterior to its completely renovated interior, this 1916 home is fit for any family.

Step inside the open foyer and you will be immediately pleased by your surroundings. On either side, you will find a spacious living and dining room, each with a gas fireplace. Oak hardwood flooring, recessed lighting, wainscoting and crown molding all make the home feel even that much more posh. Double doors in the living room lead out into a 3-seasons room, a boast-worthy bonus that contains exposed stone walls, built-in shelving and a stunning herringbone brick floor.

The updated kitchen has white cabinetry, granite countertops, tiled backsplash, stainless steel appliances, and a wine fridge. An adjoining breakfast room is perfect for a comfortable snack or casual meal.

Different from its counterparts, the family room, located in a new addition, features a trendy tiled floor. The room illuminates in the daytime thanks to multiple windows and a sliding glass door to the backyard deck. (Oh, and it has a wet bar.)

Head upstairs to the second level and you will find the master suite, as well as two additional bedrooms. The master bathroom contains a double-sink granite vanity, a frameless glass tiled shower, a Kohler soaking tub, and glass tiled floors. This colonial also features a third level, where potential homeowners will find the last two bedrooms – one of which has access to the home’s rooftop deck.

With easy access to SEPTA train stations, major roads, and all that Merion Station has to offer, this massive home is definitely worth checking out. Situated on half an acre of land, it is a stellar family home – and there’s room to grow.

This home’s price was reduced by $24,901 on Jan. 4.

SQUARE FEET: 4,396
