300 Mather Road was built by the Jenkins family over 100 years ago, and is now available for new owners for only the third time! It will not last long. This center hall colonial 4br, 2.5 half bath home full of charm and updates on the most desirable street in Jenkintown, Mather Road. Hardwood floors throughout, neutral cordless blinds, fully updated electrical (no knob and tube!!), recessed lighting, upstairs full-size washer and dryer, brand new sewer lateral (where else but a home listing do you get to brag about that?) a free-standing garage, and lovely private yard that includes lots of mature plantings from gardening enthusiast owners over the years, including a fruit-producing fig tree and plenty of hydrangeas.
The downstairs includes: foyer with working dutch-door and expanded crown molding; living room, with three large built-in bookcases and cabinetry and wood burning fireplace with insert that can heat the downstairs; separate enclosed sunroom with lots more built-ins and cabinetry and original brick flooring; dining room with chair-rail and built-in china cabinet and chair rail, kitchen with vaulted ceiling, sky lights, original brick wall, and a lovely huge window overlooking the backyard; separate large breakfast room; walk-in pantry; mud-room with dutch-door out to patio; and powder room with under-stair storage and extra closet.
Upstairs includes an expanded primary bedroom with en suite bathroom, hall bathroom with full sized washer and dryer, and three additional bedrooms.
This house has so many delightful details: working original shutters, brick walkway up to the front door, additional back porch with back door entrance, tons of original molding, and in-laid hardwood floors, and the original features have been restored and updated for the new owner.
If you are looking at moving to Jenkintown from outside the area, it’s basically the Disney World of suburban life. Your castle will be walking distance from Jenkintown schools (and yes, kids actually walk to school), shopping at local shops, Jenkintown Library, a great playground, restaurants, a movie theater, a brewery, and enough bars for a very rousing pub crawl. Jenkintown community includes many wonderful events and traditions, including Jenkintown Arts Festival, Summer Concert Music Series, Night Market, Red & Blue Fair, Sunset Run 5k Race, Jenkintown Newcomers’ Club, Progressive Dinner, Color Day, and many others. Mather Road is in its own special category, and life on Mather includes block parties, holiday caroling, happy hours, and the most epic Halloween.
But wait: there’s more! If you ever want to leave Jenkintown and your beautiful home at 300 Mather Rd., the Jenkintown train station (few short blocks away) has not one, not two, but THREE train lines running through Jenkintown. You can easily hop into Center City or down to the airport without ever getting in your car. It’s like your own personal monorail. Numerous grocery stores (including Trader Joe’s and Whole Foods) and even more shops and restaurants are just a short drive away.
