If you want to live in a part of the original Twickenham Estate you are in luck! The original home (circa 1800) was very large so the estate was split into 2 and the houses are next to each other but no longer connected. This grand 2 story home is sited on over a half acre and you will not find another home like this in Glenside! A long paver walkway takes you to covered front entrance with handsome wood door and welcomes you into a gracious foyer with hardwood floor. The foyer leads to spacious living room with custom millwork, original fireplace and opens to a solarium area. This room is drenched in natural light and has a beautiful view of the yard. The formal dining room is huge and has hardwood floor and deep windowsills. This room is so wonderful for hosting family and holiday dinners. The kitchen is bright and cheery and has tons of cabinet and counter space, breakfast room and pantry. A powder room is also conveniently located off of the kitchen. The family room has vaulted ceiling and offers a ton of space for watching TV, desk/office space and has custom windows on one side and a wall of windows on back wall-once again allowing lots of natural light in. There is also a door to patio. The second floor has 4 bedrooms and 2 full baths. The primary bedroom suite is spacious and has 2 double closets, ceiling fan and updated bath with tile floor and tub area. The second and third bedrooms are a good size and have ample closet space. The fourth bedroom has skylight and is currently being used as an office. There is also a walk in closet that can easily be converted to a bedroom or office. The hall bath is updated and has double sink, tile floor and stall shower. The third floor has loads of storage and guest room. There is a full basement with loads of potential and storage. If you enjoy gardening, spending time outdoors or entertaining you will absolutely love the backyard space. There is a covered porch with awning leading to a huge paver patio overlooking private yard with pool and mature plantings. The lot is so private and is the perfect spot for barbecues, playing ball and just enjoying the pool and the beautiful surroundings. There is a 1.5 car garage and tons of off street parking. The location is one of the very best features-it doesn't get much better than this! If you want to be in an old-fashioned neighborhood where kids play outside, ride their bikes, and walk to go sledding this is the spot for you! If you enjoy ice cream socials, neighborhood yard sales and luminaries over the holidays then this is the spot you will want to call home. You are minutes to train, library, parks, schools, shopping, restaurants, downtown Glenside, Chestnut Hill, Rt. 309 and the PA turnpike. Come and see this gracious home today! .
