Welcome home to this lovingly maintained colonial, rich in architectural details and historic charm. Through the front door, you'll enter into the center hallway which boasts gorgeous polished hardwood floors. The character of this home's 1800s construction is evident in the bright and newly painted living room. High ceilings and windows on three sides of the room allow sun to stream through, brightening the space. Two pair of French doors open to the front porch. Across the hall, you'll find the formal dining room with high ceilings, a classic built-in corner hutch and French doors that lead to the side porch. From the dining room, you'll step into the impressively large eat-in kitchen which has become this home's main gathering place. There's a sprawling island ideal for preparing and eating meals and entertaining. There's also space for a breakfast table next to the sliding door which offers a view of the large backyard. A powder room completes the first floor. Upstairs, the master suite includes a bedroom, sitting room, an office and a large bathroom with a double vanity. You'll also find two more bedrooms and a cozy reading nook on the second floor. Two more bedrooms, a storage space and another full bathroom are found on the third level. The partially fenced-in backyard is another great feature of this home. There's space for dogs to run, a garden or anything else you desire. You'll love grilling out and hosting parties on the large rear deck. There's plenty of room in the three bay detached garage for storing cars or building a workshop. There's a new roof, a new furnace and a newly installed radon system. The active owner will enjoy the home's proximity to the Logan Tennis Club, the greens at the Melrose Country Club and the Tookany Creek running and walking trail. Commuters can be at the Melrose Park train station within minutes.
