Property History
Rarely does one find the perfect combination of location, function & amenities like this lovely home at 146 Glenview Avenue! One of just a few properties that backs up to the 9-acre Williams Park (with tennis courts, a softball field, basketball court, soccer field and a tot-lot) directly out your back door. This 3-story brick Colonial, built in 1927, has been lovingly maintained & enhanced over the past 17 years by the current owners. They are only the 3rd Owners in its history, and it’s never been offered to the public previously.

 
Property Description
Within walking distance of the house, there are 5 Township parks, the Glenside pool & library and the Jenkintown train station (with the best scheduled service to Temple University, downtown Philadelphia, 30th Street Station, the Penn/Drexel campuses & the airport). The architecture of Old Wyncote is extremely diverse as no two houses are exactly alike. Approach the arched front door, and there is a welcoming covered front porch to relax, wave at your neighbors and enjoy the morning light rising over the trees. Enter into the central foyer, and you will begin to appreciate many of the original details, like the double banded wood floors, the solid original wood doors, the wood burning fireplace (just recently restored with a new smoke chamber and flue liner) and crown moldings. The Owners have instilled an Arts & Crafts aesthetic through the lighting choices, Bradbury & Bradbury wallpaper in select locations, furnishings and the custom Oak kitchen cabinets. The living room has a set of French doors that lead directly to the front porch, and another French door that leads to the rear entry hall/mudroom. The dining room is adjacent to the updated gourmet kitchen that provides everything a chef could require. This includes a 6-burner Dacor gas range with downdraft, double Jenn-Aire wall ovens & a Dacor warming drawer along with a built-in microwave, Bosch dishwasher (with an Oak front panel) and side by side fridge. A wall of cabinets just inside the breakfast area has a built-in wine cabinet, glass-front upper cabinets and more storage below. The entire rear of the home was enhanced with a huge 2-story (owner’s suite above) addition that provides a large family & breakfast room overlooking the private rear yard that provides that perfect open-plan living everyone desires today. Connecting back around to the mudroom, one finds the powder room & rear coat closet as well as access to the driveway & living room. There is exceptional circular flow to the main living areas. The laundry room is conveniently tucked under the main staircase on the 1st floor. On the 2nd floor, the original owner’s bedroom is now a large guest room, while the 2nd guest room has a wall of built-in bookshelves. There is a hall bathroom with a tub-shower combo (and even a heated towel warmer!) for those two bedrooms. The owner’s suite has its own sitting room, a private en-suite bath with stall shower and three closets. With windows on three sides overlooking the rear yard, it’s private and spacious. The 3rd floor provides 2 more spacious bedrooms and the 3rd full bathroom with a stall shower. All four bathrooms and the kitchen have been renovated within the past 17 years by the current owners. There is a full, un-finished basement for ample storage. The original brick detached garage provides a ton of storage for 1 car and all your excess stuff with a loft built into the former area for the 2nd car. While that could be easily removed, you’ll find that storage area to be very helpful. Tucked behind the house is a large patio, set under the shade trees with extensive perennial gardens that surround the yard. Privacy from the neighbors is provided by a serious of shrubs and there is a direct sightline and access to the park beyond. Another small patio area is tucked behind the garage.

 
Additional Notes
Offering just over 3,200 Sq. Ft. of living space, it’s a gracious home in a fantastic walking neighborhood.
