Picturesque in the bucolic setting of Swarthmore, PA, 555 Cornell Avenue offers plenty of living space and charm. Your love affair with this 4 bedroom, 3.5 bathroom home will begin at its classic front facade with rustic stone, a pitched roof, dormers, contrasting shutters, an airy porch, and lush front yard. Step up the landscaped front path, past the driveway to the two-car detached garage to the porch, through front door, and into the foyer. To the right through, the French doors, is a large living room offering plenty of open space to entertain or to cozy up in front of the fireplace on chilly nights. The rich, finished hardwood floors beneath your feet tell the history and character of the home as you pass through to the huge formal dining room with built-in cabinetry on opposing sides of the room as well as the most charming half bath. Next is the kitchen, which is a perfect blend of design and function with a combination of closed and open storage, built-in appliances, pendant lights, and tons of counter space including the deep peninsula with a built-in breakfast area open to the family room. The light-filled family room has a custom-made seating area under large windows overlooking the tall Spruce trees in the back yard – an incredible spot to sip your morning coffee. Just off the family room is the enclosed screen porch offering a wonderful place to relax from Spring to Fall year after year. The main floor also includes a mud room with washer/dryer and storage. Upstairs you’ll find a spacious master bedroom with tons of light and built-in bookshelves lit by the skylight, and a huge walk-in closet and dressing room. The full bathrooms are modern yet rustic with upgraded finishes, shelving, and dual flushing toilets. Three more bedrooms are on this floor, one with sloping eaves and gable end windows and another with a wall of closet space and an attached deck. The basement of this home is fully finished and can double as an in-law suite with a separate bedroom, full bath, sink, laundry area, and private entrance. When you’re not enjoying the beauty of this extended Cape Cod home, you’ll love the proximity to nationally ranked top-10 schools, and the 15 minute walk to the Swarthmore town center with a co-op grocery store, more shops and restaurants, and a public library. This home also has quick access to Swarthmore College, I-476, I-95, Philadelphia International Airport, and the SEPTA Swarthmore train station!
