Is this real life or just a dream? You’ll be asking yourself this question when you see this adorable, thoughtfully renovated, meticulously maintained 4-bedroom, 2.5-bathroom, stone colonial home located in a storybook setting in Broad Axe Village—one of the most sought-after neighborhoods in Ambler. Let’s start with the neighborhood, which features mature trees, well-manicured stately homes, and an unofficial community association that hosts fun activities and social gatherings throughout the year. It’s really something special—just ask the neighbors! Looking to get away from it all and escape into nature for a spell? You won’t have to go far because the neighboring Willow Lake Farm Preserve and Prophecy Creek Park areas offer miles of breathtaking trails through pastures, streams, and woods. Get out your binoculars for some fascinating birdwatching or bring an apple to feed the horses. It’s truly magical. But let’s not forget what you came here for—the house! Just as lovely and peaceful as the neighboring parks is this home right in their midst. Step off the front porch into a beautiful formal living room area with hardwood flooring, recessed lighting, crown molding, and a handsome wood-burning stone fireplace with an elegant white mantle. Adjacent to the living room is a bright and cheery dining room with hardwood flooring and crown molding, which is conveniently open to the charming, farmhouse-style kitchen with stylish butcher block countertops, an abundance of white cabinetry, and stainless-steel appliances, including a gas cooking range. You will appreciate the counter-style seating for breakfast or casual meals, and you will love the apron-front sink that looks into the family room. The kitchen is the heart of this home, connecting with both the dining room and the family room—it’s an entertainer’s dream. With a vaulted ceiling, skylights, a white-washed brick-front gas fireplace, and large windows that overlook the backyard, the spacious and sunny family room will surely be one of your favorite places to entertain your guests. The family room is especially attractive because it provides access to the beautifully landscaped backyard that will be the envy of your friends and family. There is a patio for dining and relaxing, a firepit area for roasting marshmallows and late-night fun, plenty of yard space for lawn games, and even a shed for storage. It’s perfection! Finishing out the main level of the home is a powder room and recently renovated mud and laundry room that is so pretty you might be finding excuses to do the wash. This area provides access to the half garage that contributes additional storage space, and can also be accessed from the driveway for easy unloading of people and things. On the lower level of the home is a finished daylight basement with plush carpeting and plenty of storage. It makes a great place to work, play, or workout. This area has also been professionally waterproofed. When you’re done hiking, entertaining, and partaking in activities in your finished basement or outdoor oasis, you’ll be happy to retreat to one of the four nicely sized bedrooms, all with hardwood flooring and plenty of closet space. Three of the four bedrooms share a hall bathroom with a tub/shower combo, while the primary bedroom features a luxury hotel-style, en suite bathroom with a glass-framed stall shower for the ultimate in relaxation and pampering. Important functional elements of the upstairs area include the pull-down attic stairs and energy-efficient whole house fan, which is additional to the central air offered in the home. As if its proximity to nature isn't enough to make the setting of this home perfect, it is also located it the top-rated Wissahickon School District and near to all of the shopping and dining conveniences of downtown Ambler along with neighboring Blue Bell, Lower Gwynedd, Plymouth Meeting, Flourtown, and Chestnut Hill.
