Lot Size








With its distinctive red brick & stucco exterior, wood detailing, lush landscaping & mature trees spanning the entire lot, 301 Cynwyd Rd has character galore & is an excellent family home. You'll love the friendly community & great location near award-winning Lower Merion schools (choice of L Merion of Harriton High School!), the many shops & restaurants down Montgomery Ave, close proximity to bike trails & the train to Philly. The 6 BR 2.5 bath residence previously housed the likes of the presidents of Girard College & Nabisco Philadelphia. Current owners once used it as a bed & breakfast due to its expansive size & prime address. Upon moving in they installed a state-of-the-art heater system, converted from oil to gas heat, insulated the basement & attic, upgraded the electrical & recently did extensive renovation in the basement & kitchen. A beautiful glass detailed entry door brings you into a large foyer & elegant living space graced by original wood floors, 5" original baseboards, curved walls & other period details. The foyer opens through an archway to a large living room with a sunny bay window & wood-burning fireplace flanked by built-ins. The expanded year-young kitchen features new wood floors, granite countertops, abundant cabinet space & stainless steel appliances , and island legs made from reclaimed wood from the renovation. The well-proportioned dining room with new lighting & butler's pantry access can fit a huge table & accommodate plenty of your guests! A sunroom off the front entrance with tile flooring & exposed brick walls is divine, with soapstone beds for growing orchids & a functional hot house for year-round plants. Also on the main level is a powder room, mudroom area with laundry & a pantry off the rear entrance. On the 2nd level are 4 light-filled rooms & a full hall bath with a separate tub & shower. The bright, smaller BR off the staircase, which has access to the veranda, could be a perfect library! An additional 4 rooms, one of which is currently used as an office, & full hall bath with original & newer elements occupy level 3. The unfinished walk-out basement with sealed walls & floor, glass block windows & a workshop space also offers tremendous potential & versatile use of space. Other highlights of this special abode include a lovely deck & veranda for enjoying dinner, drinks & entertaining, wide driveway for parking, backyard shed & wood shed for storing firewood for those cold winter nights.
