When peace like a river..... This home soothes the soul and offers a retreat-like experience every day. The river beckons the spirit from the moment you park. The entry foyer offers plenty of space to leave your shoes and jackets and head upstairs to where the magic unfolds. Spectacular views await through the Pella windows and doors; no need to put the lights on until evening, as the amount of natural light abounds. Plenty of room to entertain and enjoy music played through a whole home audio system. All of life’s necessities and “extras” are easily accessed behind a closed door in a massive renovated pantry. The kitchen makes life so easy; Jenn-Aire appliances, stainless farmhouse sink, and a massive quartz topped island offering additional storage. Step through large floor/ceiling Pella sliding doors to the deck off the main living area for grilling and you feel you are on vacation. (Hard to believe Philly is just down the river and around the bend!) Walking upstairs to the top floor is a large room, boasting space for two office/work areas, playroom and guest quarters. A large walk-in closet with laundry facilities makes wash days a breeze. The open air master bedroom boasts additional water views with another private deck to enjoy morning coffee and sunrises, or a glass of wine as the sun goes down. Out on the property the options for entertaining are equally unique. Relax under the lights in the evening on the bluestone patio and watch the boats go by. Or you have your choice of two fully renovated river decks, unique to only a handful of homes in this community and enjoy the serenity of the flowing water. Enjoy fishing or relax on a hammock on the lower deck and if you want to get out on the water, place your kayak or canoe directly in from the deck and off you go. If Philly is calling your name, jump in the car and you will be at the Philly Zoo and Center City within minutes. The Amtrak station at 30th Street and Philly International Airport are all nearby making travel arrangements a breeze. Rare to find a waterfront home in this area; this is a fabulous blend of city and suburbia. A truly unique, peaceful and easy Main Line living experience.
