The farms have all but disappeared from this part of the Main Line, but this handsome 1908 farmhouse remains standing as a reminder of what used to be.

But just like what’s around it, this home has likewise changed. Thanks to a top-to-bottom refresh this year, it’s equipped for both the here and now and the small businessperson or creative entrepreneur.

It presents a welcoming face to the street in the form of its spacious wraparound front porch. Walk onto it from the steps leading from the side driveway and take in the charming view.

Then walk through the large front door and find yourself in an open main floor. The original details shine in the natural light of the living and dining rooms’ large windows. The kitchen offers 21st-century style, convenience and luxury (check out the cabinet-front fridge). The family room is full of warmth from its built-in cabinets, decorative fireplace and beamed ceiling, and there’s a modern mud room with laundry and powder room in back.

The second floor contains four bedrooms, including a master suite with an updated bathroom, and a hall bath.

The third floor has its own separate entrance and stairs in an ell attached to the back. This large, skylit space makes an ideal home office or can serve as a den. There’s also a storage room, a bedroom and a half bath with plumbing in place to turn it back into a full one.

The spacious rear yard preserves the woodsy charm of this area.

All this is wrapped in vinyl siding and located within walking distance of both the Berwyn business district and its SEPTA Regional Rail station. That makes it easy for you to get into the city — and for your clients in the city to come visit you out on the “farm.”
