Fabulous, expanded, Brick & Stucco Colonial 2-story home in Wallingford is available for the first time in 41 years! 712 W Brookhaven Rd is impeccably maintained, immaculately clean and thoughtfully renovated in 1992. This stately home with 5 bedrooms and 3 full baths, is located in one of Delaware County’s most desirable communities and served by the much sought-after Wallingford-Swarthmore school district. The house features a spacious Living Room with bow window, lovely Dining Room and a beautiful 285 square foot Sunporch that overlooks a gorgeous level backyard that you will truly enjoy! The eat-in Kitchen was completely updated in 2018 with a s/c stainless steel GE oven/range, dishwasher, microwave, stainless sink, and a GE Profile French-door refrigerator; all are included. Light granite counter tops, classic subway tile backsplash, soft close white cabinetry, garbage and recycling bins, turntable corner cabinet and pocket doors are the special touches your inner top chef will appreciate! The first floor has three Bedrooms, one used as a home office/ exercise room with recessed lighting, the 2nd spacious bedroom has an en suite bath with stall shower (this was the original primary bedroom). The 3rd bedroom is also a good size and all rooms have plenty of closet space. Just off the hallway is a 2nd full bathroom with tub/shower and convenient laundry shoot in the vanity. As the seller’s family grew, so too did the need for additional bedrooms and a wonderful second floor was added in 1992. You’ll find a very spacious 4th bedroom with great closet space, and the “piece de resistance” is the fabulous second Primary bedroom and sitting area, cathedral ceiling, double closets and an en suite tub/bath. And if that’s not enough, the sliding glass doors open on to a 3 year old Trex deck with lovely views of the grounds. What a great spot to relax and unwind from your busy day! Gleaming hardwood floors are throughout the first and second floors. This home offers flexibility! Options for an in law suite on the first floor, or, for returning children, the second floor suite of rooms, full bath and deck would work well!
The finished Basement area is approximately 770 sq ft and works well as a great family room with a gas fireplace & custom walnut mantel. The bar is tucked in one corner, a fun spot for hanging out on game day. There’s a large Laundry Room with a newer double laundry tub, washer, dryer, and upright freezer (included). Walk-in closet for extra storage. A separate utility room houses the mechanicals of the home and also has a hobby area and work bench.
The house was converted to gas heat and has newer central air, 200 amp CB electric service. You’ll find gutters (with leaf guards) and downspouts. The outside of the house is surrounded by well-maintained landscaping, lovely English roses, flowering perennials and specimen trees; two car attached garage and driveway parking can accommodate 3 more cars. Swim, tennis and golf clubs are nearby. Did I mention the location is very convenient to schools, the Media-Elwyn commuter rail line, Philadelphia Airport (15 min), major roads and a short commute to center city Phila and Wilm, DE (25 min). Shopping and Trader Joe's are so close. May through September is "Dining under the Stars in Media - Everybody's Hometown. Welcome home!
