When a home changes hands about once ever 50 years, you know it's a keeper. One of the first homes in the area built of poured concrete and mahogany timbers accented by Mercer tiles, this stately Tudor on the corner of South Chester Road and Harvard Avenue has been called home for over 50 years and enjoyed by generations. Framed by an aged Sycamore and built by Turner Construction in the early 1900s, this home has all the details you would expect in a home of this era: pocket doors, hardwood flooring, wood-burning fireplaces, split stairway, tile inlays, built-in cabinetry, a patio and large covered porches as well as a second floor balcony with wrought iron railings. The home also has some interesting upgrades in the way of energy efficient windows with electronic storm shutters. In a few short weeks, the result of decades of gardening will be evident as the yard bursts with color and Cherry Blossoms will line the street. Served by Wallingford Swarthmore School District and ideally located to Swarthmore College, the town center and public transportation, this home is ready for new ideas and energy. No doubt this lovely property will offer years of enjoyment to its next lucky custodians.
