The best of all worlds – your private oasis in the middle of everything - can be yours! Nestled on a rarely available street in a park-like setting, this expanded, potentially-six-bedroom, cape cod style home sits in one of Wallingford's most desirable and coveted neighborhoods. With large lots, homes set far back, and mature trees and flowering bushes everywhere, this entire street is ablaze with breathtaking colors in Spring and Fall. You can WALK to the nationally recognized elementary, middle, and high schools, the Wallingford train station (20 min to Center City), library, ball fields, parks, and stunning nature/hiking trails. This is a convenient, central location with easy access to highways, the airport, center city, and the vibrant town of Media with its shops, restaurants, professional theater, and festivals. The unassuming front façade completely disguises the surprising, rambling spaciousness of this cape. Do not be fooled! A large, bright, atrium-style foyer with a skylight and cedar closet greets you. To your right is a Primary Bedroom with a wall-to-wall mirrored closet and en suite bath with a skylight, large Jacuzzi-style tub, and separate shower. Sliding doors lead to a private deck-for-two that connects to a larger multi-level deck that runs the length of the house, beyond which is a limestone terrace. Already you can feel the vibes of a forever home. To your left is an expansive Living Room with hardwood floor, built-in shelves and cabinets, stone fireplace with wood stove insert, casement windows, and a large bay window letting the light pour in. This space is just begging for holiday gatherings. Beyond that at the center of the home is an efficient u-shaped Kitchen with many cabinets, granite counters, stainless appliances, and a huge picture window overlooking the back deck and yard. An adjacent Dining Area has room for a sizable table and chairs. The flow of these major spaces in the home creates endless opportunities for entertaining or intimate just-family gatherings. Sliding doors from the Dining Area lead to a large Sunroom with skylights where you could watch movies or host a small gathering, while enjoying outdoor views, even in Fall and Winter. At over three-quarters of an acre, the fully fenced, multi-level backyard backs to school playing fields, offering terrific privacy for gardening, barbecues, and birthday parties. 2 additional bedrooms complete the main floor. One is very large, with hardwood floors, 3 closets, and built-in drawers; this would also make a terrific den, rec room, or gym. The second is a medium-sized room with wrap-around, built-in, desks, cabinets, and shelving, with verdant views of the rear yard, making it a natural choice for an amazing home office. These two bedrooms share a hall bathroom with an updated frameless glass shower and built-in linen storage. In addition to the 2-3 three bedrooms on the main floor, the upstairs has 2 large bedrooms, a smaller office/bedroom, and a shared bath. This whole floor could be a deluxe Primary Suite, Teen Suite with a den/study/rec room, or keep it simply as 2-3 bedrooms. The smaller office/bedroom includes some built-in cabinetry and large windows looking out to the backyard, giving this home the possibility of a second home office. A finished basement with tile floor rounds out the living spaces and offers recreation, Laundry, cedar closet, steel dog wash, and copious storage. A detached 2-car garage and driveway for 4-plus, round out the exterior. Though this home is a diamond in the rough awaiting your vision and cosmetic touches, the heater is only 13 years old, the water heater is only 3 years old, the neighborhood is the stuff of dreams, and the floor plan offers the tremendous flexibility needed in modern lifestyles for recreation, entertaining, and working from home.
