Eye catching is how you would describe this Garden Paradise of a home on a side-walked street with a parade of changing colors throughout the seasons. Walking entirely around this home is a must. Gorgeous perennial specimen plantings are in view as you gaze out the wall of windows at the back of the house. Impressive also comes to mind as you take in the inviting deep, full-length covered front porch with majestic stone pillars and party lights. Welcome to 230 Merion Road, a house with oodles of charm both inside and out. Entering, you will enjoy the spacious foyer with coat closet, and lovely staircase with a peek-a boo window that allows the natural light to flow from the back of the house to the front. There is a living room to the left and an adult family room to the right. Both rooms have beautiful marble surround fireplaces, gleaming hardwood floors and lovely mill work. Through the living room are two open space rooms with cathedral ceilings that connect to the kitchen. The current owners opened the wall between the kitchen and breakfast room for ease of flow. All of the rooms on the first floor are multi-purpose and may be set up according to your choice & life style. For example- the ~adult living/reading~ room at the front of the house and across from the living room was used by the previous owners as a dining room. The current owners prefer dining while looking out onto the back gardens. The kitchen is large and functional with stainless appliances including a Thermador six burner gas stove. Back stairs off the kitchen offer an informal way to the second-floor bedroom area. Off of the kitchen is a cute mudroom for wet coats and school bags. There is driveway parking and a detached two car garage plus a backyard flagstone patio. The second-floor includes the master bedroom with an abundance of closet space, a sitting area, en-suite bath with jacuzzi tub and walk in shower. Two other generously sized bedrooms with a second full bath and laundry room complete the second floor. There is laundry in the basement level too. The third floor has two large bedrooms and an additional updated full bath and an abundance of storage. This home is complete with energy efficient replacement windows, hardwood floors, new high efficiency HVAC with airscrubber (installed 2018). This is a much coveted neighborhood walk-able to the fun town of Narberth, The Merion Botanical Gardens, Merion Elementary School and the Paoli Thorndale train to Center City. This house does not back up to the train.
