About This Property

Rising Sun is one of the most coveted streets in Ardmore. This tree-lined, tranquil street is known for distinctive, historic architecture, and this home embodies sophisticated elegance. You will immediately feel a sense of peace as you enter the sun-filled living room, and your eyes are drawn to the stunning original millwork on the fireplace mantel, the lovely hand railing and balusters of the staircase, and the crown and dentil moldings. As you step into the formal dining room you pass a secondary entry door that features an elegant leaded glass window, only to notice that three of the dining room walls have windows that flood the room with natural light. The large modern kitchen is a chef's dream. Stunning cabinetry is integrated into the original architecture and highlighted by well-placed lighting. A central island enhances workflow and provides a place for guests to keep you company while you entertain and cook. The kitchen is unusually spacious, thanks to the extra-wide footprint of this elegant home. The kitchen steps out to the back yard where, light cascades through the magnificent pine and cedar trees throughout out the day providing privacy and a relaxing parklike atmosphere. Nestled in the far end of the yard is a patio perfect for entertaining or simply enjoying the tranquility. Upstairs the landing features an original architectural cathedral window and 3 bedrooms, including the master that has its own entrance to the hall bathroom. This bathroom is unusually large and offers historic charm with the original cast iron bathtub and tile floor. Ascend to the third floor, where you will find two additional bedrooms and an even more spacious bathroom complete with both a bathtub and a stand-alone shower. The floor's dormer widows blend architectural angle and natural light and create venues ideal for work, creative, and reading areas. It's just a short 4-block walk to the Blue Ribbon Elementary School, Chesnutwold, or a brief stroll up to Carlino's Italian Market, Lancaster Avenue~where you can enjoy the award-winning brewery, Tired Hands, Madido Market place of Japan, The Bercy~Suburban Square, and many more restaurants and shopping establishments. There are many local parks and playgrounds, public transit is only a few blocks away, and you are literally steps from Haverford College's arboretum, perfect for exercise, strolling, and reflection. A true classic Ardmore architectural gem!
