Relocation for work has the current owners of 229 Highland Avenue very sad; sad to leave their home that they love and sad to leave the wonderful town of Ambler. That said, their unexpected change is your golden opportunity as this home offers a fantastic open concept, spacious rooms, tons of natural light, an amazing back yard, and is in absolute move in condition. As you approach the house, you will be charmed by the sweet front patio surrounded by a beautiful Japanese Maple and hearty hydrangea. Once inside, you will be wowed by the open space and sightline from the living room all the way into the kitchen. The living room and dining room are open to one another, boasting a vaulted ceiling, recessed lighting, architectural beams, and several windows which bathe the space in natural light. Beyond the dining room, the kitchen is thoughtfully designed, offering tons of storage space, plenty of countertop workspace, glass tile backsplash, stainless steel appliances, gas cooking, and more. This layout allows you to be working in the kitchen and be fully engaged with those in the living and dining rooms or just be able to watch TV while cooking. Upstairs you will find three nicely sized bedrooms with ample closet space, a full, recently renovated, bathroom, and access to convenient attic storage. Downstairs, the lower level features a fabulous family room. This room is huge and was designed with entertaining in mind as it features a bar, complete with a built-in beverage fridge, and surround sound. Extra measures were taken to soundproof this space, so you can play the Eagles game as loud as you want and not disturb those who may be sleeping upstairs. You will also find access to a crawlspace from this room which offers plentiful storage. Adjacent to the family room is a large laundry room and mudroom/workspace, which also includes a conveniently located powder room and access to the rear yard. Outside, you will fall in love with the back yard, as it is perfectly sized, fenced-in, and private. Just off of the back door is a large patio area, accommodating dining, lounging, and cooking areas. You are sure to spend countless evenings enjoying the built-in seating area and fire pit. There are raised beds for gardening and a sizable shed for storage. While fenced, the rear of the property offers additional privacy in the way of a bamboo 'privacy wall'. This bamboo was installed the right way, in a retained bed with root (shoot) barrier, so it grows only where it was planted and does not travel. 229 Highland also features a high-efficiency heater, central air conditioning, off-street parking for two cars, and more. The location is ideal; sought after Wissahickon School District, and just a few blocks from downtown Ambler and the train into the city. Living in Ambler is a dream, as not only is it a wonderful, tight knit community, but there is so much to do. Ambler boasts an incredible array of restaurants, two breweries(!), shopping and services, the best cooperative grocery store, annual festivals, a seasonal farmers' market, several great parks, a library, and more! Did I mention that this is all within walking distance??? This home is a special opportunity, one that you do not want to miss!
