This beautiful home at 118 Webster Ave offers a rare chance to own a large, well-maintained Victorian twin with wonderful curb appeal and a sizable yard in the Old Wyncote section of Cheltenham. Step across its mahogany front porch and enter a home with warm hardwood floors, a turned staircase, and an expansive living-room area with a woodstove fireplace insert. High ceilings and large windows give the first floor a generous sense of space. The living room flows into the formal dining room, complete with wainscoting, crown molding, a large bay window, and a built-in china closet. Next comes the updated kitchen, with Fisher-Paykel refrigerator, granite and butcher-block countertops, a bump-out window, and three windows that overlook a rear porch and a backyard filled with flowering bushes and trees. A back staircase from the kitchen offers direct access to the 2nd floor. The ample 2nd floor features 4 bedrooms, all with closets and 3 with ceiling fans. A row of hallway cabinets offers generous additional storage. The hall bathroom features a tub/shower with tiled walls. The rear bedroom includes an original window/door combo that leads onto the lovely 2nd-floor deck overlooking the tree canopy. The spacious 3rd floor includes a large office or bedroom suite with 2 dedicated electrical lines, another bedroom or office adjacent to a walk-in hallway closet, a storage room, and a tiled bath with shower and tub. This floor has its own zone heating and thermostat. This is a great neighborhood for walkers. Not only do grand Victorians and old stone churches abound, but 118 Webster Ave is a four-minute walk to SEPTA’s Jenkintown/Wyncote train station, with multiple lines including one to the PHL airport. Even closer are the local post office, a café, a dry cleaner, and a pizza place. You are within close walking distance of Curtis Arboretum and four other township parks, including one with a goose pond and sledding hill and another with athletic fields. The quiet location offers easy access to Rte. 309 and points north and south, including central Philadelphia. With many original details, a huge basement with parged walls, 100-amp electrical service, a hot-water heater (replaced in 2022), and first and second floor central a/c (replaced in 2021), you get the charms of a historic home with the pleasures of a well-tended property. Don't miss the opportunity to make this wonderful house your home!
