Ideally located just off Yale Ave between Cornell and Rutgers and a short walk to Swarthmore College, 508 Harvard Avenue is a rare find. This charming old world brick and cedar Arts & Crafts home was built in 1910. Retaining many of its original details, the present owner has made $100,000 in thoughtful upgrades installing central air, new electric, completely renovating the kitchen and 2 of the bath rooms and opening rooms to accommodate a more modern floor plan. A wide brick path and manicured front yard provide a distinguished entrance to the home. Past the covered porch entry is a large reception room warmed by a brick fireplace. Mellowed hardwood flooring ushers you through the living room and dining room. Sunlight dances through the original leaded glass windows in both rooms. The updated kitchen has a European flair with its crisp white cabinetry, stainless appliances and distinctive herringbone patterned brick floor. There is also an updated half bath and a rear staircase to the second floor. A convenient door leads out back to the nicely landscaped and fenced in yard and a two car garage. The large enclosed porch off the foyer is a delightful place for morning reads and evening cocktails. Up the handsome main staircase to the second floor offering a main bedroom with lots of closet space and 3 secondary bedrooms, all featuring more of those beautiful hardwood floors and lots of natural light. An updated bathroom services this floor. A finished third floor with hardwood flooring has an additional bedroom and full bath. Just 7 minutes to the Swarthmore train station to Philly and walking distance to the park and College. Thoughtfully updated, conveniently located, this gem of a home succeeds brilliantly!
