    Description

    Welcome to 216 South Chester ~ a magnificent 5 bedroom, 3 and one-half bathroom home, with many updates throughout giving it a more modern feel yet(while) preserving the fairy tale Tudor charm. As you approach the home from the stone walkway, you are greeted with distinctive detail from the half-timber framing, to the large chimneys and the arched front door. Enter to the spectacular foyer that features mahogany paneling, diamond cut lead glass windows, a high ceiling with exposed beams and a grand staircase. To the left is a sun filled Living Room complete with charming window seats and a window bench, as well as an elegant wood burning fireplace with brick surround. Continue to the cozy screened in porch that offers a beautiful view of the lovely landscaped backyard ~ a perfect place to unwind after a long day. On the opposite side of the foyer is a dining room that flows nicely to the family room. Once again you will discover special details - high ceilings, built in cabinets and another woodburning fireplace. Continue into the gorgeous updated eat-in-kitchen with a large granite island. Other features of the kitchen include stainless steel appliances, off-white paneled cabinets, marble backsplash and granite counters. Beyond the kitchen is a spacious laundry room with double sink and loads of storage space with built in shelves and cabinets. Around the corner is an office with lots of bookshelves, and next to that is a quaint powder room. A heated enclosed porch completes the first floor ~ a delightful place to enjoy your morning coffee. The grand second floor of this home can be accessed by either the main or back staircase. Upstairs are five large bedrooms including a fabulous huge master suite. The master bedroom has a lovely wood burning fireplace and a large sitting room adjacent to it. The master bathroom has been updated with neutral colors throughout. Additional features of the second floor include a window bench, and multiple large linen closets as well as two convenient hall closets outside the master suite. The third floor offers space galore for a studio or au pair suite ~ the possibilities are endless. There are two rooms that have been dedicated to storage. Additionally, there is an updated full bathroom and another large finished room. The unfinished basement is very large, and it offers more space for storage. Here you will also find the newer and upgraded heating, and air conditioning systems. There is a detached 2 car garage off the driveway in the back of the property. It has a second floor that can be used for storage or even converted to another room. All of this and so much more can be found at this very special and welcoming home. Minutes away from downtown Swarthmore and the beautiful college campus and a short drive to Media! It is also part of the award-winning Wallingford-Swarthmore School District.
