Property Description

When a timeless older home has been lovingly cared for, thoughtfully and tastefully remodeled while keeping its character intact -- it shows. We are proud to present 8 Princeton Road in Havertown as one of those special homes. This classically beautiful Dutch Colonial has stood the test of time, thanks to conscientious and committed owners who have attended to its every need. With a graceful stone exterior (newly pointed on the south and west sides), five/six bedrooms, three full baths, a peaceful lot graced by an expansive Deck, spacious two-car Garage and private driveway with parking for 4+ vehicles, the stage is set for a residence that will please even the most exacting buyer. A traditional center entrance floor plan here affords a flow from the Foyer with cedar closet -- where the refinished original hardwood floors with walnut inlay can be seen throughout this level -- into either the Dining Room (bay window, crown and chair rail millwork, pass-through Breakfast bar to the Kitchen) or into the formal Living Room with its newer gas fireplace, bay window and sconces. Two sets of French doors here lead to the all season Sunroom (windows galore and a wood-burning Fireplace) -- the perfect destination for a sunny home office. Remodeled and very well-equipped, the Kitchen/Breakfast area (tile backsplash, granite, stainless steel, gas cooking, recessed lighting, hardwood floors) has a convenient exit to the Deck. On the second level find four newly painted and hardwood-floored bedrooms each with a ceiling fan and cedar closet, and one full Bath, (totally remodeled in 2018). As with many homes of the early 20th century, this one has a finished third floor, too. New carpeting was just installed here! With an updated full Bath on this level, this could be a private Master Suite, guest area, or aupaire quarters. There's plenty of additional living space on the partially finished lower level, too, displaying newer carpeting (2020), a built-in bar, laundry facilities, and a full Bath. Storage needs will be accommodated in the unfinished area here, or in the two-car Garage w/ 300s/f +/- loft (a rare find in Havertown). Organization will be simple in this garage thanks to a custom storage system and vinyl grid flooring. The location could not be more convenient. Steps away from the shops, eateries, and watering holes on Darby Road & Brookline blvd, and just across Darby Rd, you'll find the Haverford Township Library, HS & Middle Schools, and Veterans Park. The brand new YMCA and Havertown's convivial restaurants and pubs are neighborhood destinations. Plus, the Blue Route is less than three miles away for trips to the airport or easy access to the 95, PA turnpike, Rt 76, the Airport, and CC Philly.
