Sometimes you just know when it's right. And when that home is built entirely of concrete, then you know it's special. The dramatic Flagstone walk from the sidewalk sets the theme, with a riot of color from the tulips, lilacs, roses and finally the wisteria covered Veranda. In 1904, on a half-acre+ lot deep enough for this stately Colonial, and owned by William W. Turner of Turner Construction, 731 Yale has the expanse and beauty expected from a home of this era: tall ceilings in wide open rooms that flow from one to the other through wide archways; pocket doors; original pine flooring that has just been burnished to a warm glow; original wood-burning fireplaces, some with decorative Mercer tiling; French Doors from the Dining Room to the Study and the Living Room to the Enclosed Porch. Overlooking the Side and Back Yards, the Kitchen includes stainless steel appliances, a separate Island, Breakfast and Mudroom area, and loads of cabinets. The Butler's Pantry with 2nd sink and Dining Room are close by, along with the Powder Room and Coat Closet. The Formal Living Room has a coved ceiling, French Door and Wood Burning Fireplace. The Formal Dining Room has a dramatic concrete beamed ceiling, built-in Hutch and Bay Window with window seat. From the exceptionally large landing, the fabulous 3 Rm Master Suite boasts a Master Bath with Oversized Steam Shower, Dressing Room with 3 closets, and a private Sunroom/office. There are 3 more bedrooms on this floor, with a Hall Bath with Jacuzzi tub. A second Bedroom suite is located on the third floor, with a Living Room, separate Bathroom, Storage area and Large Bedroom. A 6th bedroom is also on this floor. Take advantage of this amazing opportunity to purchase this tremendous home. You can easily add your own updating & finishes to the "excellent bones" that exist. Comparable sales this year push $1M+, leaving plenty of financial freedom for your renovation budget, which you can choose to do immediately OR over time, since the home is currently in great condition. It was just a short walk from the famed Strath Haven Lake where generations came to summer; enjoying the cool breezes and shaded lawns at the rocky valley of Crum Creek~and now you'll enjoy the quick trip to Swarthmore Village. It's easy to get to Wilmington, Philadelphia and the Main Line using the train or interstates. And you'll also enjoy the restaurants, shopping and events in Media, just 5 miles away!
