Can you believe this is not The Poconos? This rare find, situated on just under a 3/4 acre lot and only 20 miles outside of Center City Philadelphia, is truly a unique East Norriton opportunity! The completely fenced-in yet picturesque grounds include a 3 bedroom, 2 full bathroom main house complete with central air (added 2006), a 2-story three car garage that was converted into a 1 bedroom GUEST HOUSE/entertaining space/2 car garage WITH a full kitchen & bathroom, a stand-alone shed for yard equipment (built 2012), THREE outdoor patio areas (two built in 2010) shaded by a Japanese maple tree, parking for 10+ cars, and still a large enough lot to add an inground pool!
While the main entrance faces Swede Road, you will appreciate the expanded wrap-around driveway off Hartranft Boulevard that provides access to the property. It's truly love at first sight! Be sure to check out the video tour & have your sound on for effect!
The home's side entrance opens to a multi-purpose room that could be used as a mudroom, guest bedroom, or home office, and is conveniently situated next to the 1st floor FULL bathroom (added 2013). The exposed stone wall is beautifully highlighted by sunlight that pours into this space. The neutral painted walls in the formal dining room & extra large living room provide a calming energy that matches the rest of the house & grounds. Despite the manicured trees that shade the house, there is sunlight all throughout the first floor. The bright, well lit kitchen with ample cabinets & counter space, also provides outside access which should make dealing with grocery bags that much easier. Upstairs, the primary bedroom is complemented by a WALK-IN CLOSET (added 2011) that is the size of a small nursery. Bedrooms two & three also have large closets, and complete the 2nd floor with a shared hall bathroom giving modern meets retro vibes. Access the attic through the 3rd bedroom ceiling's pull down ladder. The basement houses the laundry room, storage area, and play room. The washer & dryer, as pictured, are included. The main house offers the best of HVAC worlds...radiator heat AND central air!
If you love to entertain, prefer separate space for overnight guests, or want a truly unique home office experience, the DETACHED 2-STORY OVERSIZED GARAGE (renovated in 2014) is where it's at! Complete with a full kitchen, modern countertops & backsplash, bar area with seating, AND a large full bathroom with a jacuzzi tub, when the chairs (as pictured) are removed, the space is still large enough to hold two vehicles! The current owners carefully thought out this renovation, and even considered the snow! The 2nd story loft provides a private bedroom and additional storage space.
What can't be said about the grounds? They are breathtaking, especially during spring blooms. Host an outdoor movie night or daytime barbeque, roast marshmallows at the firepit, admire the mature & well manicured foliage, build another structure, or install a pool! The possibilities are endless! For the nature lovers, the trail behind the house leads straight to Germantown Pike!
Whether you prefer to nickname 2202 Swede Road a compound or an estate, this beautiful & private property is located in highly desirable East Norriton, is a 10 minute drive to King of Prussia and Plymouth Meeting malls, is walking distance to Norristown Farm Park & Elmwood Park Zoo, nearby the PA Turnpike, and a easy Septa Regional Rail commute to Center City Philadelphia. Seeing is believing...so go see!
