Welcome home to 3 Rutledge Ave, a wonderful stone and shingle Colonial that is rich with original architectural details. Sitting on a level 1/3 acre lot in Rutledge Borough, this lovely spacious 4 bedroom home offers a unique opportunity within the Wallingford Swarthmore School District. Park in the driveway or detached garage and follow the walk to the back door and deck. Or enter the front door with vestibule into the center hall of the home. The period craftmanship abounds, from the stained-glass windows, to the wood inlayed floors, the coffered ceilings and the carved newel posts. Off the foyer, to the left is a large formal living room with a decorative fireplace and soaring ceilings. Adjoining the living room through a set of pocket doors is the expansive family room where the natural light pours through the fenestration. Next to the family room is a formal dining room with bow windows and detailed woodwork. Off the center hall to the right is the charming kitchen leading to the back door and the back stairway as well as the powder room. The front ornate staircase leads to the second floor with four large bedrooms, one with laundry. The full hall bath has vintage tilework and stained-glass windows. Follow the staircase to the third floor which contains a bonus finished room as well as a large attic room with endless potential. The full unfinished basement has been professionally waterproofed in recent years, and contains the utilities, storage and egress to the back yard. Other recent improvements include knob & tube removal/rewiring, and a newer roof. Outside overlooking the level, fenced backyard is a deck, and near the deck is an area that has been traditionally used as a wildflower and/or vegetable garden. Most of the property is lawn, but the edges of the property are landscaped for privacy. In the back is the garage, sold as is, and the driveway. Rutledge is a friendly Borough approximately 4 blocks by 4 blocks in size, characterized by sidewalks and diverse architecture. The home is only a few blocks from the Morton SEPTA station and the surrounding village and offers easy access to major commercial areas, highways and airport. Best and final offers due Wednesday, November 15th at 5pm.
