First-Time Find: A Cute Country House in Schwenksville
We’re sure that some of you out there look at our Farmhouse Friday featured homes and sigh because they’re all above your price range.
If that describes you, read on, because we think we’ve found the “farmhouse” for you.
This attractive, well-maintained bungalow sits on a one-third-acre lot in Schwenksville, a world away from the hustle and bustle of the Main Line and King of Prussia. From its landscaped hillside lot, you can enjoy great views of Spring Mount and the Perkiomen Valley — the home even has a newly built deck out back where you can relax in the morning (or evening) and take in the view over morning coffee or an evening glass of wine.
Inside, you’ll find a bright, light-filled interior courtesy the home’s abundant windows and southern exposure. The living room has a handsome stone fireplace, built-in bookshelves and a recently refinished original hardwood floor.
Behind the living room is the kitchen with its included breakfast nook. This room has also been updated with white cabinetry, new countertops and a modern backsplash and appliances. A pantry along the wall by the door to the basement stairs offers additional storage space.
In front of the living room is a porch-like bedroom that could also serve as a den or home office, and there’s also a powder room on this floor.
Upstairs is a large master bedroom with two closets and a cozy bed nook beneath a Cape window ringed with modern shiplap paneling. A third bedroom and a modern bathroom round out the facilities on this floor.
The basement contains laundry facilities and plenty of storage space.
The beauty of this place is, it only looks remote. You’re close to Routes 29 and 73, which take you into the heart of Schwenksville and on to Collegeville. Routes 422 and 476 are a short drive away, and you can bike into Schwenksville to pick up the Perkiomen Trail. Your children will get a good education in the Perkiomen Valley School District as well.
