Just Listed: Renovated Twin in Media
Close to the heart of "Everybody's Hometown" yet far enough away to be tranquil, this handsome turn-of-the-20th-century house has lots of nice modern goodies in it.
Everybody loves Media these days, it seems. “Everybody’s Hometown” offers a classic Main Street that’s filled with unique shops, a wide variety of restaurants, and a performing arts center in a classic movie house.
But if you want to live in “Everybody’s Hometown’s” heart, for the most part, you’re going to be a renter. Most of the housing stock in the heart of the borough is owned by investors, property management companies and the borough’s homegrown real estate firm, Media Real Estate Company.
So when a chance to own a house in the heart of Media comes along, you should pounce on it.
This house for sale is highly pounceable.
Built in 1900, it just got a total makeover that gave it up-to-date amenities while respecting its classic style.
The house has a totally open main floor that can be arranged as you wish, though the builder has given you some design cues as to what should go where.
One of them is the chandelier in the nook between the living room and the kitchen. That light fixture usually says, “Put a dining table under me.” And the person who staged this house for sale beautifully did just that.
Besides, it’s convenient to the spacious kitchen and its breakfast bar. You may note that besides plenty of cabinet space, it also has a beverage fridge.
The wide-plank oak floors throughout the house were hand-scraped and refinished to make them look like old.
Large windows let in lots of light into the four upstairs bedrooms.
A partly finished basement offers storage space, laundry facilities and room for leisure and entertaining.
You’ll also find room for leisure and entertaining in the large backyard, which includes a paver patio.
And when you want to get out of the house, Media’s lively Main Street, State Street, is a short walk away. Moylan/Rose Valley Regional Rail station is a little further away but still within walking distance. That means you can choose either small-town charm or big-city excitement whenever you feel like going out.
