Mary Lou and Rob Boyd found a house in Radnor that has it all—10 minutes from the train station, but deer and foxes within sight, writes Paul Jablow for The Philadelphia Inquirer.
They were looking for privacy but also the convenience of getting to Center City, where Rob Boyd worked as an attorney.
The three-bedroom, two-bath house sits on a gentle slope on an acre of land with a stream running through it.
“We wanted something unique,” said Mary Lou. “It was a very emotional buy.”
The oldest section of the three-story house dates to 1840 and has yellow-painted German siding with green accents on shutters and doors.
The second floor has a formal dining room, a living room with a front door to the elevated exterior, and a master bedroom.
Both the bedroom and the dining room have built-in bookcases. The third floor has two bedrooms.
The kitchen has a beamed ceiling, hardwood floors and granite countertops. The family room features white-painted tongue-and-groove paneling and beamed ceilings.
There’s a slate patio and a detached two-car garage with storage.
The property is listed with Michael Wallacavage of James A. Cochrane Inc. for $543,500.
