In a neighborhood shot through with historic charm, it’s hard to stand out above the rest – but this Bala Cynwyd colonial built way back in 1905 makes it look so easy.

Step into the home through the two-story columned entrance and feel satisfied from the start. The large archways from the foyer give the main floor a spacious, open feel.

The completely renovated kitchen boasts granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, plenty of cabinet space, and a small work area (perfect for you to be productive and watch the kids simultaneously). The three and a half bathrooms throughout the home have also undergone renovations, one as recently as August 2016.

The third floor includes two walk-in attic spaces on each end perfect for storage. If you need even more space, the basement is currently unfinished, but freshly painted and full of potential.

Throughout the house, there are traditional features like hardwood floors and one-of-a-kind light fixtures. However, if contemporary is more your style, you might want to modernize some rooms.

If the indoor amenities aren’t enough for you, just take a look outside. A gorgeous in-ground pool will make summer days spectacular. The backyard also features a koi pond, several gardens, and a detached carriage house.

Speaking of the carriage house, this one doubles as a garage and storage space, although the driveway does not lead directly to it. It is two stories tall and ready for an ambitious owner to add that personal touch. The second level is plumbed and can be converted into an additional living space if desired.

With a suburban atmosphere but easy access to the heart of the city, this property is a top-notch find for any family.
