This is a very unique listing as two separate parcels are being offered together. The main listing is a stately colonial home located at 623 S. Bethlehem Pike (3,639 sq. ft.) and the second listing is a cottage located at 500 Inverness Ave. The cottage offers many possibilities and can be a wonderful, separate in-law suite or perfect for a nanny or caretaker. It has been used in the past as an office and as an income producing property. It features 760 sq. ft. with full bath and is situated on almost 1/4 of an acre. It potentially could be expanded and developed on its own. Victor Potts, esteemed builder and developer of much of the Elliger Park section of Ft. Washington, lived in this home and used the cottage as his office. The main home is a lovely, traditional, center hall colonial with large rooms, hardwood flooring and plenty of windows making the home light and bright. Enter the front to back foyer and find a beautiful turned staircase. The formal living room to the right has built in cabinetry and a double sided wood burning fireplace which could also be a gas fireplace. Two doorways from the living room lead to the stunning sunroom which boasts new carpeting, picture frame molding, a bay window, fireplace and convenient outside exit to the patio. To the left of the foyer is the formal dining room which has a gorgeous stone fireplace. The kitchen and family room are adjacent and open to each other - a nice, unexpected feature so important for today's modern lifestyle. The kitchen features a small center island, double sinks, tiled backsplash, Whirlpool electric stove, dishwasher and disposal. The family room has random width oak pegged flooring and an incredible oversized brick fireplace. Sliders on two of the walls provide lovely views of the yard and pool and easy access to the flagstone patio. There are three bedrooms on the second floor. The main bedroom has an ensuite bathroom with stall shower and a mirrored wall of closets. The special feature of this room is the adjacent porch area. The second bedroom is enormous (24'x14') with a huge picture window on the rear wall overlooking the pool. The fourth bedroom is located on the finished area of the third floor. There is central air on the second and third floors and the gas fired hot water heating has five zones. The public water and sewer are shared with the cottage. The driveway winds around the house and goes past the pool and tennis court and back to the garage/pool house and connects to the parking area and driveway around the cottage. The pool house has a covered outdoor patio area and inside there is room for a pool table and there is even a kitchen area with wall oven and electric cooktop. Imagine the parties and family gatherings! This is a remarkable compound which is in need of a little updating and has been priced accordingly. It is located in the highly rated Upper Dublin school district and is less than a mile from trendy downtown Ambler which offers shopping, great restaurants, theaters and the Septa regional rail line. This is an amazing opportunity!
