This spectacular 1970s* contemporary home sits on a quiet cul-de-sac on Haverford’s north side.  Viewing it from the outside, you might be forgiven for thinking you’ve passed through a time warp, but on the inside, it remains fresh, clean and light, with its modernist design leavened by elements of traditional decor.

With an open floor plan, stunning hardwood floors and more windows than you can imagine, natural light is a key element in this home. Some of the more distinct elements that bring this home to life are the vaulted wood-beamed ceilings and built-ins in the family room,  a master suite with a fabulous walk-in closet and an incredible in-home sauna, and a renovated gourmet kitchen. An expansive rear deck outside offers views of your scenic backyard as well as a space to entertain.

This house has not only its looks going for it but its location as well. It’s far enough away from Lancaster Avenue to be blissfully unaffected by its bustle, yet it’s close to both the Ardmore commercial district, with its wealth of shops, restaurants and cultural activities, and to the Haverford Square shopping center. You can catch SEPTA Regional Rail in either Ardmore or Haverford, and your children will attend school in the highly regarded Lower Merion School District.

*Actually, it was built in 1981. But you know how architectural fashions don’t always sync with the calendar.
