Becky Krevitz from BHHS Fox Roach announces a price drop for what is likely the oldest house in Jenkintown at the corner of Walnut and Runnymede.
Attention: Lovers of history!
A very special house awaits a very special owner. This 1780 Farmhouse is known by many as the oldest, and most beautiful, home in Jenkintown. Local lore claims that it was a stop on the Underground Railroad. It was originally part of the Baeder Estate and later the Wanamaker Estate.
The Kitchen is large, with beamed ceilings, soapstone counters, tile backsplash, dishwasher and garbage disposal. Previous owners added a convenient laundry room and powder room to this space. A door from the kitchen area leads to the beautiful back and side yards, with 2 patios and a lovely pergola for easy outdoor entertaining.
The Formal Dining Room boasts an original walk-in fireplace (non-operable), beamed ceilings and beautiful built-ins. The formal living room features another fireplace (non-operable) surrounded by built-ins, and has doors to the front of the house and the Sun Room addition.
The Sun Room features soaring beamed ceilings, a wood stove, and exit to the side yard. The second level includes the large master bedroom with fireplace (non-operable) and 2 closets, 2 additional cozy bedrooms and a full bath. The third floor makes a perfect guest suite with a large bedroom, a small bedroom and a very large partial bath that can easily be converted to a full bath.
Additional home features include an attached one-car garage, central air conditioning, newer furnace (2010), replacement windows, newer storm doors, newer appliances and much much more! Enjoy the convenience of the 21st century and the romance of the past in this beautiful dwelling. Jenkintown Boro is a lovely walkable community located just outside of Philadelphia, near major highways, shopping, dining, and the Jenkintown Train Station.
