Tucked away at the end of a cul-de-sac and situated on just under an acre of lush lawn, casual landscaping, and mature trees you will discover one of the most unique homes in Springfield Township. This cedar shingle home is something you would expect to find in a beach town in New England, not 30 minutes from center city Philadelphia! Once you manage to find this house (hint, it is in a friendly, active neighborhood but you can’t see it from the street) you will be instantly charmed by the serene surroundings and character. The original house was built around 1895, boasts wide plank floors, vaulted ceilings, dormer windows, exposed beams, and unexpected spaces. This home has had quite a few owners put their touches on it over the years and the current owners are no exception. Their improvements have taken this enchanting space and made it inviting and stylish while maintaining a touch of the whimsy that makes it so special. Most notably, the kitchen was recently renovated with all new appliances including an Ilve professional white gas range and hood that will inspire even reluctant cooks to want to spend time in the kitchen. Or at least hang out at the peninsula counter with its gleaming white quartz countertops and watch someone else cook! This house is made for entertaining with a circular flow from the spacious living room with a wood-burning fireplace to the kitchen and right into the dining area with french doors leading out to the deck and expansive yard. There is a second fireplace in the dining room for, especially chilly days. Just off of the dining room is a great flex space that can be closed off from the rest of the house. Currently used as a family room and study nook, it features an updated full bath and a separate entrance making it an excellent option for an in-law suite or au-pair suite, or a private home office. On the other side of the dining room is the most charming three-season room. With one wall of cedar and doors and windows on all other sides it is the perfect spot for your plant collection and to enjoy the views of your private sanctuary. A tidy laundry room and powder room round out this level. Upstairs the rustic and refined style continues. The primary bedroom feels like a vacation escape. Sun-soaked from the huge windows and vaulted ceilings plus a bonus loft space accessed by a spiral staircase. The primary bath is very large, full of natural light and spa vibes from the wood ceiling. It features a jetted tub, separate water closet, and a stall shower that is ready for an update to make it as fantastic as the rest of the house. There are three other bedrooms on this floor and a newly updated hall bath. With its penny tile floor, custom vanity and counter, subway tile walls, tub/shower combo, and matte black fixtures this bathroom is modern, stylish, and functional. Each bedroom is lovely in its own right. The smallest room is closest to the primary bedroom and is the perfect size for an office, nursery, or guest room. The middle room is bright and cheery with two large windows, gleaming wood floors, and good closet space. Down the hall, you will find perhaps the most unique space in this home. Walk down the windowed hall to what I call the tower, a double-height space flanked by windows on two sides, with walls clad in repurposed wood. This warm and inviting space is sure to delight and is the perfect shared room or sleepover space with custom built-in bunks. The oversized two-car garage will meet all of your storage needs plus includes a separate workshop space with its own door. If you are looking for a one-of-a-kind property, don’t delay in seeing this fantastic hidden gem in Oreland. Walking distance to the Springfield School District campus. Minutes from route 309, the Oreland Regional Rail Station, Chestnut Hill, Flourtown, and the heart of Oreland.
