Welcome to 1333 School Lane - a Mid-20th Century home that blends modern, traditional and contemporary elements to bring you this one-of-a kind Rydal home. Tucked away on a majestic one acre lot, the home was originally built in 1952 by architect Arthur B. White, in the style of Dutch designer and architect Rietveld, an acolyte of Frank Lloyd Wright. The current owners thoughtfully and carefully expanded the home in 1996 which further enhanced the airy, open and 'bringing the outside in' feeling you'll experience the minute you enter this architecturally unique property. Walls of windows across the entire rear of the home enable you to enjoy spectacular views from each and every room. The formal living room offers a fireplace, many built-in shelves and cabinets and recessed lighting. The entertaining flow is seamless with the dining room, complete with built-in cabinets, in the nearby open area. An island kitchen overlooks a breakfast room with breathtaking views from every angle. Follow the flow into the office that features a gas fireplace, skylights, a flagstone floor, built-in desk and adjoining family room with hardwood flooring. The family room has hidden partition walls that enable the space to be converted to a private bedroom or in-law area. There is a full bathroom with stall shower on the main level. At the end of a long day, retreat to the second floor master suite where an amazing spa-like bath awaits. Relax and enjoy the jetted tub, perfectly positioned next to a glass window that once again reminds you of your nearness to nature. Three generously sized bedrooms, each with organized closets, a laundry room with pull-down steps to attic storage and a smartly designed wall of cabinets in the hallway for some extra storage complete the second floor. A flagstone patio overlooks the peaceful, serene rear yard with abundant perennials, specimen plantings and mature trees. Additional assets include a two vehicle carport with storage unit, plenty of driveway and overflow area parking, neutral decor throughout with many rooms freshly painted and new HVAC in 2010. This exceptional home is within walking distance of trains to Center City Philadelphia, local bus routes, dining, the Penn State Abington campus and shopping at Whole Foods and Trader Joes. Award winning Abington schools including Rydal Elementary. One year home warranty to buyer at the time of settlement. Welcome home!
