Newly Listed: Main Line Home Made From Rock Hill Quarry Stone

Exterior of 1103 Montgomery Avenue, PA, Penn Valley, PA

Exterior of 1103 Montgomery Avenue, PA, Penn Valley, PA

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.
