Rising Sun is one of the most coveted streets in Ardmore. This tree-lined, tranquil street is known for distinctive, historic architecture, and this home embodies sophisticated elegance. You will immediately feel a sense of peace as you enter the sun-filled living room, and your eyes are drawn to the stunning original millwork on the fireplace mantel, the lovely hand railing and balusters of the staircase, and the crown and dentil moldings. As you step into the formal dining room you pass a secondary entry door that features an elegant leaded glass window, only to notice that three of the dining room walls have windows that flood the room with natural light.
