Today’s Main Line builders produce modern homes that look like they’ve been around for decades — but you can usually tell they haven’t by examining the details.

This home, on the other hand, has been around for decades, and you can tell by its outside appearance.

But on the inside, this classic 1925 Tudor home is completely up to date, with oversized rooms, contemporary classic design and the amenities modern buyers want.

The living room and formal dining room both boast fireplaces that add to their character, and the family room’s wraparound windows give it the look and feel of a classic sun porch. The kitchen features commercial-grade appliances and quartz counters, and the attached breakfast room’s large windows fill the space with light.

Upstairs, the master suite includes his-and-hers closets, a spacious master bath and its own large deck, accessed through French doors in the bathroom. Four more bedrooms, three modern bathrooms and a study round out the package.

Its location just west of the Villanova University campus puts you within easy reach of some of the best shopping and dining on the Main Line as well as convenient SEPTA Regional Rail service to Center City and highway connections to King of Prussia and Conshohocken. And, of course, your kids will attend one of those world-beating Main Line public schools.



BATHS: 4 full, 1 half

SALE PRICE: $1,500,000

OTHER STUFF: There’s a two-car garage tucked under the home as well, and almost all of the original millwork as well as the original floors remain in place and in tip-top shape.
