Quiet Stone House with Private Access to Walking Trail and Park

This quiet, 3-bedroom, 2.5-bath stone home in Lower Merion School District has a friendly neighbors, large bedrooms, lots of closet space, a shady back yard with a Weber gas grill, a beautiful creek and outdoor eating area, a private driveway with garage, an eat-in kitchen, a foosball table in a dry basement, and private access to a public walking trail (Cynwyd Trail). Kids can walk in a minute to a park with a playground, baseball and soccer fields, and basketball and tennis courts without crossing a road (from the walking trail). Elementary and middle schools are .7 miles away by foot, car or bus. The best school district in the area, Lower Merion Schools currently allow a choice of online or in-person instruction. The house is less than half a mile's walk from a commuter train to Philadelphia (Cynwyd Station, with trains during rush hour), a mile from the Schuylkill Expressway and a twenty-minute walk on the trail to Manayunk. It's fully furnished for a family of four or five (4+ years old recommended because of the creek). The home has a four year-old HVAC system with central air and efficient natural gas heating, along with a convection oven and a new Bosch dishwasher in the kitchen.

A real Sabbatical Homes gem! Recently restored classical stone house in a quiet, low traffic, family friendly neighborhood. Modern well-equipped kitchen, family room, dining room, and living room make for a cozy first floor. Second floor has three roomy bedrooms. The good sized lot has a private access gate to the wonderful Cynwyd Trail, great for walking, running and bike riding. The small stream running through the yard creates a calming natural setting. Easy highway access, nearby shopping and library make this an ideal house we were happy to find! The owners are friendly, easy to communicate with, and very responsive to any questions.
