Swarthmore dream home new construction available today! If you were to ask anyone from Delco where their dream home would be, the answer would overwhelmingly be Swarthmore. If you were to request a brand new house in Swarthmore you'd be promptly laughed at. However, today you get a once in a decade opportunity to have BOTH of these dreams together in one home. Nestled in the woods backing up to your very own babbling brook and private wooded lot spanning an unheard of 1/3 acre in Swarthmore borough, there sits a BRAND new plantation style home ready for a lucky and fast acting owner. This MASSIVE 3600 sq ft dream home commands your presence the moment you pull onto Kenyan Ave. Our huge 4 bedroom 2 and 1 half bath has a stunning front entrance with a waterfall staircase entryway. The large front porch on this quiet street is only the beginning. The newly landscaped yard has had a brand new sewer, water and gas line brought to the property, and fresh sod put down covering the grounds. The entire home has brand new framing, insulation, windows, doors, plumbing, electrical and a new driveway being installed once the cold weather breaks. Walking distance to the borough shops, train stop and swarthmore college's beautiful arboretum and campus, this location is deeply desired by many in the area. Outside, you'll see two large rear decks, both spanning the width of the home, with the private second floor deck leading out from the master bedroom. Inside the main entry you're greeted with contemporary stylings and airy 9 foot ceilings. To your left an extra room with double doors, perfect for an exercise room or a quiet and private study / home office. As you take a few steps forward you see the beauty of newly designed homes. Before you lies an ENORMOUS bright great room, with kitchen, dining and living all in the same grand open space. A long and spacious kitchen bathed in natural light establishes itself with enough space for award winning gourmet meals, fabulous parties, and all the potlucks and friends you could find. Windows at every glance, with deep sills allow plants and dressings to customize this grand and elegant space. Double doors lead out to your private deck with calming views of the backyard and creek running through your property. Downstairs a custom stucco wall leads you to a fully finished 1200 sq ft basement that runs the entire length of the house. As an added bonus, there is an entryway from the basement to a custom cemented entertainment or sitting area, perfect for washing the dog, kicking off muddy shoes or just getting out of the rain to grill in peace. It's nook like feel will be a huge hit for anyone looking to be part of the backyard action while still retaining peace and privacy. As you walk up the stairs to the upper floor you'll notice you haven't seen a hot water heater or laundry anywhere yet. Second floor laundry hookups and tank-less water heater mean endless, instant hot water, and no hassle, stress free laundry for the rest of your time living at 246 Bowdoin. 3 Bedrooms flank both sides of the hallways upstairs with ample closet space and a large double vanity bathroom for these lodgings. Finally, the end of the hall brings you to one of the best features of this brand new home. The Master bed bath suite has massively tall ceilings, exposed beams, and a master bath with a giant soaker tub, custom bamboo vanity with gorgeous arctic white quartz to match the kitchen's flare for luxury. A rainfall shower-head and custom quartz and tile complete this master bath, but the highlight is by far the views from your private balcony overlooking the secluded, wooded, stream in the backyard. Opportunities like this come once a decade, maybe less, especially in coveted Swarthmore, one of "2019's Best places to live in Pennsylvania." With this home you get contemporary luxury and location, something few ever even dream of getting. Come see it today and snatch it up before you have to wait another 10 years.
