Some contemporary homes from the 1970s and 1980s look like period pieces today, with decor and features that look about as stylish as leisure suits and platform shoes.
This is not one of those homes. It avoids that fate through a marriage of contemporary architecture and traditional design that gives it a fresh yet timeless look. And it’s gotten judicious updates since it was built in 1988 to ensure it stays fresh.
The home’s most distinctively contemporary-in-spirit features are the two-story foyer and the skylit semicircular space next to the kitchen that can serve as either a breakfast room or second family room.
The first family room exemplifies the blending of the traditional with the contemporary via its stone fireplace and warm natural wood built-ins. The recently remodeled kitchen takes up that theme.
There’s a spacious master suite upstairs with dual walk-in closets and an en suite bath. Downstairs you’ll find a full finished basement that makes a great rec room, media room or gym, or maybe all three.
And behind all this is a huge rear deck that lets you enjoy the home’s wooded surroundings.
This home is located on a quiet cul-de-sac not far from Lankenau Hospital. Shopping in Wynnewood and City Avenue are both a stone’s throw away, and Regional Rail to Center City is equally convenient.
