301 E. Butler is a wonderful 3 story stone home boasting lovely period details including a dreamy wrap around porch with gingerbread balusters welcoming you to the home. The porch at 301 is the perfect place to relax and enjoy a book and a cool breeze, but due to its size, your friends will certainly expect an invite. This porch is THE place to be for the Annual Ambler Holiday Parade. The expansive size allows you to entertain plenty of guests and the elevation offers a birds-eye view. You will no doubt appreciate the thoughtful details such as the no maintenance flooring, hanging baskets with custom irrigation system, and the freshly painted columns, railings, and balusters. Inside you will love the abundance of natural light, high ceilings, deep windowsills, and the beautiful stained glass window. Entering from the porch, you will find a spacious formal living room with recessed lighting, crown molding, and coat closet. The living room opens into the nicely sized dining room which features crown molding, chair rail, a charming built-in china cabinet, and access to the front porch. Off of the dining room you will find another room that is able to serve a multitude of uses. It makes for a great playroom, den, office, or a 1st floor bedroom. This room is attached to a Jack-n-Jill style full bath. Beyond the dining room is a large kitchen offering stainless steel appliances, great counter space, and tons of storage. If you enjoy cooking, you will appreciate the gas range with double oven. In addition to the under/over counter cabinets, there is a built-in pantry storage system, separate pantry closet, and a butcher block work table that offers storage below. Off of the kitchen you find access to the full bathroom and fabulous laundry/mudroom. This space is extremely useful, as when parking in the driveway, you will enter the home through the mudroom providing the perfect place to stash coats, bags, sports equipment, you name it. The exposed stone wall and beadboard are lovely touches that you will surely enjoy. Upstairs, the 2nd floor offers 2 bedrooms, a full bath, and hall linen closet. The master bedroom is huge, offering 2 closets. This room could easily spare plenty of space to add another full bath, creating a fantastic master suite. The 3rd floor presents 2 bedrooms and an additional room that has served as an office. The larger of the two bedrooms would also make a great lounge area/playroom and has one of the best vantage points in Ambler. Due to the roofline, these rooms all feature beautiful angles and darling little nooks. Outside you'll find a sweet rear porch, constructed of no maintenance trex decking, a lovely bluestone patio, and stone retaining wall that also serves as bench seating for a crowd. There are plenty of thoughtfully placed beds boasting beautiful perennials, which also include in-place irrigation. If you act quickly, you will be in your new home by the time the fig tree begins to bear fruit! You will find access to the basement under the front porch and will be thrilled to see that it offers an enormous amount of storage. Other important details include dual zoned central air, replacement windows, and 2 car driveway. When entertaining, the parking lot across Butler is very convenient for your guests. This home is just blocks away from wonderful restaurants, breweries and shops, a movie theater, playhouse, library, weekly farmers market, and year-round festivals. That said, you don't even have to leave your block to have a good time as this is a very tight knit neighborhood, known for the Halloween Progressive Porch Parties! If you'd like to lessen your impact on the environment, you could easily live here and hardly ever drive as the train station and bus stop are both within walking distance AND you have an incredible cooperative grocery store two blocks away! In addition to that, this home is located in award winning Wissahickon School District, within the boundaries of Lower Gwynedd Elementary.
