    Description

    This stately stone colonial in Abington School District can be yours! Built in the 1920s with old world craftsmanship. The 9 bedroom home sits high above Huntingdon Valley Country Club on 2-acres with sweeping views from the sprawling stone patio. From the moment you drive down the circular driveway you can't help but marvel at the workmanship and elegance ... nothing cookie cutter about this place! President Carter once slept here. The home needs TLC and updating but it is rock solid. A brand new roof was installed in 2016 and repairs made to the original copper gutters. The main entrance to the home is through Grand foyer. The foyer opens up to a magnificent study/library with original woodwork. Off to one side is the formal living room with wood burning fireplace, crown molding, magnificent views and separate entrance to the stone patio. The living room opens to the tiled sun porch which is heated and was used by previous owner as their family room. On the other side of the foyer is a formal dining room with an elegant crystal chandelier. Original hardwood floors throughout the home. The floors have been covered with wall to wall carpeting since the 70s. Carpeting on the main floor has recently been removed to expose the wood floors. A swinging door connects the dining room to the spacious eat-in kitchen.
