    Description

    Look no further than this rare and charming 1920+GGs colonial, extensively renovated by the architect/interior designer couple who fell in love with the house in 1986! Their updated design and innovative adaptive redevelopment transformed a center hall classic into a comfortable contemporary residence with interesting spaces & materials, and unique indoor & outdoor living spaces.A quiet sought-after circle in Bala Cynwyd, Snowden Road has a small village feel with no through-traffic, in a very active, walker-friendly neighborhood. The home is steps from Cynwyd Heritage Trail, for great strolls to Manayunk for coffee or to Bala village, dinner at Bala Thai Bistro or Pescatore, or the errand at the post office. Children can ride bikes, play sports on the lane, and walk safely to friends+GG homes as well as Cynwyd School & Bala Cynwyd Middle. The large backyard is magical, especially in spring when the garden blooms & trees fill out, creating a private oasis. Grandkids can spend time in the playhouse at the foot of the hill, while families of all ages will love the hot tub year-round. A covered, columned front porch entrance welcomes you, setting an elegant tone. Inside allows for togetherness with friends & family as well as places to retreat to get things done in the office, studio or workshop. The abundant variation of social spaces works well with large get-togethers. Adults can chat in the family/living room interacting as dinner is prepared in the open kitchen, while the young watch Disney & play games in the ground-floor media/game room. Or read the paper & sip coffee by the wood-burning fireplace, as light shines into the family/living room, adjoining sky-lit sunroom & breakfast area. The gracious layout is the stunning result of a major 2-story addition affording a more open connection between the living space, dining room & kitchen, all with a backdrop of views.Sleeping quarters offer 3 bedrooms including the primary, full & half baths on floor 2 + 2 bedrooms & full bath on level 3. All bathrooms have been finely updated. The walkout basement addition presents an office/workout room, media/game room, storage & workspace, and separate family room with wet bar for hanging out. Other fine features go on & on including new solid oak & radiant heat flooring, laundry with cabinetry concealed behind sliding doors, low-maintenance AZEK vinyl decking, extensive hardscaping, plus stepped stone planter walls, stone steps & gravel path leading to a garden storage shed, 40-year architectural shingle roofing, Certainteed Cedarboard insulated vinyl siding, energy-efficient Pella aluminum Architect Series windows, freshly painted trim, shutters & porches (2020), new 2-zone AC units & hot water heater. Make this gem yours!
