This beautiful well-maintained 4 bed / 3.5 bath Stone Colonial is located in one of the most desirable Bala neighborhoods; walkability to Cynwyd Elementary, Bala Middle school, tennis courts, Amherst Park, shops and Lower Merion choice zone for high schoolers makes this one of the best locations for a home on the market. Upon stepping into the foyer, you'll immediately notice the traditional floor plan and well kept hardwood flooring throughout. The expansive Living Room with newly converted gas fireplace (Nov 2021) and newer chimney liners coupled with newer white built-in shelving and cabinetry offer the perfect entertainment space or room for a family movie night. The sunny Dining Room is open to the Kitchen and provides ample space for a large dining table while still leaving room for bench seating at the Kitchen bar for quick meals. The neutral Kitchen has granite countertops, tile flooring and a plethora of cabinets for storage. Stainless steel appliances, modern range hood, access to driveway, yard and basement make this a very functional Kitchen for the busiest of families. The second floor doesn't disappoint with 2 En Suites plus 2 additional Bedrooms and a Hall Full Bath. The Primary Ensuite addition was added in 2014 and is sizable with Bonus Room currently used as an office with custom built-ins and french doors that could easily be a nursery. The Primary Full Bath has shower stall with glass doors, double vanity with granite countertop and a walk-in closet. The second Bedroom En Suite is large and full bath has a shower stall. The 3rd and 4th Bedrooms, Full Hall Bath with tub, upper floor Laundry and hardwood flooring complete the Second Floor. The lower level has a walk-out access to backyard, a Family/Play room, two storage areas, and Half Bath convenient when kids are at play. Attached oversized garage with high ceilings is currently used as home gym, but usable as 1-2 car garage once equipment is removed. Backyard is fenced in 2016 leaving plenty of entertaining space with stone patio and fire pit. The black top driveway was resurfaced in 2017 and has room for those afternoon basketball games. Additional updates include Roof replacement in 3 sections 2006 (main), 2013 (metal) and 2014 (rear), heater chimney liner in 2013, fireplace conversion to gas with new liner in 2021, new foundation for front porch in 2013, entire house repainted in May 2022 and so much more.
