The outside, the trim and the cabinetry all say "classic Colonial." But don't let those distractions fool you: this renovated 1916 classic is a totally contemporary home.

Colonial here, colonial there, colonial everywhere! The Main Line is a hub for 20th-century colonials, so it’s not exactly surprising that we found this one for sale in Merion Station.

What is surprising about this colonial, however, is its beauty. From its exquisitely maintained exterior to its completely renovated interior, this 1916 home is fit for any family.

Step inside the open foyer and you will be immediately pleased by your surroundings. On either side, you will find a spacious living and dining room, each with a gas fireplace. Oak hardwood flooring, recessed lighting, wainscoting and crown molding all make the home feel even that much more posh. Double doors in the living room lead out into a 3-seasons room, a boast-worthy bonus that contains exposed stone walls, built-in shelving and a stunning herringbone brick floor.

The updated kitchen has white cabinetry, granite countertops, tiled backsplash, stainless steel appliances, and a wine fridge. An adjoining breakfast room is perfect for a comfortable snack or casual meal.

Different from its counterparts, the family room, located in a new addition, features a trendy tiled floor. The room illuminates in the daytime thanks to multiple windows and a sliding glass door to the backyard deck. (Oh, and it has a wet bar.)

Head upstairs to the second level and you will find the master suite, as well as two additional bedrooms. The master bathroom contains a double-sink granite vanity, a frameless glass tiled shower, a Kohler soaking tub, and glass tiled floors. This colonial also features a third level, where potential homeowners will find the last two bedrooms – one of which has access to the home’s rooftop deck.

With easy access to SEPTA train stations, major roads, and all that Merion Station has to offer, this massive home is definitely worth checking out. Situated on half an acre of land, it is a stellar family home – and there’s room to grow.

This home’s price was reduced by $24,901 on Jan. 4.
