Is your Ambler Borough home search leaving you frustrated and fruitless? Maybe it’s time to get creative and think outside of the box? 309 Fairview is a beautiful stone DUPLEX that could be converted back into the single-family home that it once was. Or, live in one unit and offset your mortgage payment with the income from the second unit.
This striking three-story stone duplex is located on a quiet, tree lined street within walking distance to downtown Ambler’s restaurants, shopping, theater, Weaver’s Way, the train, and more. This home has been extremely well maintained and is in move-in ready condition.
Currently, the home consists of two apartments with the layout described below, however, with some modifications, 309 Fairview would make a fantastic single family home. The first floor wouldn’t need to change much, the second floor could easily be three-four bedrooms, and the third floor could be converted into a lovely master suite.
309 boasts a charming front porch and shared foyer. The first floor unit offers 1 bedroom, living room, dining room, kitchen, breakfast room, full bathroom, and large unfinished basement with laundry and plenty of storage. Off the breakfast room, you will find a nice deck and beautiful rear yard.
Upstairs, the second unit is comprised of two floors. The second floor offers a living room, dining room, bedroom (currently being used as an office/den), kitchen and full bathroom. Up another set of light-filled stairs, the third floor features another very large bedroom and laundry room with half bath. There are also two huge storage closets located off of the laundry room. This unit could easily serve as a three bedroom if a door was added to the dining room.
There is a long driveway for off-street parking, and plenty of outdoor space to enjoy. The home offers high ceilings, tons of natural light, turned staircase, and lovely old world details.
The location is very convenient to public transportation, an easy walk to the train station, bus stops, and a very short drive to route 309 and major routes of transportation. This is a wonderful opportunity, do not delay!
