This right-sized detached home is in a picturesque setting in desirable Blue Bell Hill. The location and block, lined with magical gardens, can't be beat: Walk out the door and within 50 feet slip away into off-the-beaten-path Clifford Park for quick nature escapes, or go to the other end of the block to choose from Blue Bell Hill Park or several other entrances into the Wissahickon Gorge. Easy access to 50 miles of hiking/biking trails including the iconic Forbidden Drive and Lincoln Drive make weekend adventures or bike commuting into the city a breeze. And with a pristine retro-cool aesthetic, the home itself is totally move-in ready with a spacious and functional layout to personalize and update as you go. The main level is airy and bright, the living room has two sweet storage nooks with downlighting and a scalloped arch, and the formal dining room features two large closets and access to the basement. The kitchen is extra sunny with two exposures and connects to the rear laundry area, sweet powder room and enclosed porch, which has tons of potential for year-round entertaining or maybe even a greenhouse. The yard is the perfect balance of low-maintenance hardscaping and planting beds to satisfy any level of gardener; it wraps around to the front with more planting beds to enhance curb appeal. The two bedrooms on the second level each benefit from two exposures and have good closet space. The larger bedroom sits at the front, and the rear has plush carpet. The time-capsule hall bath is a vision in blue with an extra-long vanity, original cast iron soaking tub in great condition and built-in shelving for linen storage. Off the second bedroom is access to the finished attic space, which is large enough for a bedroom but would also make a great home office, library or retro-chic lounge. Enjoy easy city access along with a peaceful suburban vibe in this awesome home.
