Welcome to a true Jewel of a Home. When you hear the expression that, "a home has been lovingly cared for", that doesn't begin to explain the devotion this family has to maintaining the history of the home and respect to the craftsmen that built it. If you looking for a home with all the bells and whistles available today, this is not your home. This is a home for the buyers who want a home not a house. From the welcoming front door and beautiful landscaping, a look over to the outside Living room, and a step inside, you feel embraced by the notion of "coming Home". The living room has an open feel to it with the doors to the porch and the steps to the upstairs. It can be snug and cozy with the fire going in winter or open to the sounds and light of the other 3 Seasons. the dining room has held many a dinner and celebration. The Butlers pantry is as handsome as it is useful. The Kitchen is this Professional Chefs' dream and the work table will stay. Finally there is the laundry room and Powder room and rear door to the back yard. The second floor holds four great bedrooms with plenty of closet space and a updated hall bath. The third floor is the "cherry on top". It is a wonderful retreat with a big bedroom, and seating area, and across the hall is the office/dressing room. The hall bath is a good size and there is a full shower inside. The basement is amazing! It has been cleaned out, painted, walls refinished and ready for the next chapter. The outside is truly magnificent. There is the hidden patio that is perfect for a quiet time alone with a glass of wine and a good conversation. The side porch was rebuilt from the ground up in 2008. It has a mahogany floor that with care will last for a very long time. The trees and bushes, flowers and fern, all have their time to shine from early April to late October. This neighborhood is quiet and caring, friendships last way past the moving van taking the owners to the next destination. this is a neighborhood of 20-50 year residents and many people move down the street, around the corner of even next door. It is convenient to Keswick Village, many restaurants, shopping, trains, buses, schools, and the township pool. This home has held many a great get together and been the home of generations. Its a home to hide outside or in some of the quirky nooks and crannies inside. This home is for that "Special Buyer
