Freshly painted, and enriched by newly re-stained hardwood floors, 131 Penarth stands out with its great curb appeal and elegant light-filled interiors. You’ll enjoy this home as your oasis, whether you’re lounging on the covered patio, gathered around the fire pit, watching the kids and dogs play in the fenced-in yard, or cozying around the fireplace, reading, chatting, or playing games on winter nights. There’s enough space to be together or spread out to work or study in private, and an easy layout for entertaining guests. On either side of the gracious foyer sits an inviting living room with a wood-burning fireplace and built-ins, and a formal dining room. Off the living room is the large covered patio, perfect for serving coffee or cocktails outdoors in the warmer weather. The kitchen lends itself to cooking and conversation, enhanced by granite countertops, new stainless steel appliances, plus lots of cabinetry storage and sunlight. Also on this level is a handy laundry-mudroom with new washer & dryer, and a tasteful full bath. Level 2 presents your lovely primary bedroom retreat, with a new sliding barn glass door and oversized frameless glass shower in the stylish updated en-suite bath. Three additional bedrooms provide versatility for sleeping quarters, an office, etc., and share a full bath. The 3rd story houses 2 generously-sized bedrooms as well another full bath. The dry basement is ideal for storage or can be finished to extend the living space. Other highlights are front & rear stairs, central air, security system, a private drive, and detached 2-car garage, You may feel in a world all your own, yet you’re in very close proximity to all essentials, especially award-winning Lower Merion schools which are a block away. It is only a short drive to anything you need, including Suburban Square shopping center, Whole Foods, even Center City!
