Rare Opportunity to own a beautiful grand home on coveted, tree-lined Latches Lane, which is also home to the original Barnes Foundation Location. This Center Hall Colonial sits on 1 sprawling acre of land with a small creek running through the edge of the yard. You will be impressed with the home layout that features a large and bright formal living room, formal dining room perfect for hosting holiday dinners and gatherings, a butler's pantry and very large kitchen with a den beyond to make your own! Open it up and extend the kitchen or make a sitting/playroom area for your family. The entrance to the patio is just off the kitchen which provides for easy opportunities to enjoy al fresco meals in the summer. Additionally, you will find a wood-paneled office and half bath along with several large storage closets. Head up the grand staircase and you will find the large and very private master bedroom and full bath en-suite on one side of the home and 3 additional, very spacious bedrooms on the other side and down the hall. The second floor is completed with two additional full bathrooms, both a jack-and-jill and a hall bathroom for everyone's convenience. Even more, the home includes a very large basement, half for storage and laundry and the other half that has been newly dry walled and painted with a powder room and walk out exit, that is perfect for additional living space for in laws or an au pair. The basement leads to the magnificent backyard, covered patio and 2-car garage. This is a wonderful opportunity to customize your dream home, while enjoying the incredible original features and prime location. Walking distance to Merion Botanical Park, Septa Regional Rail, Montgomery Avenue shopping corridor and many places of worship.
