53 Hendricks Street is a wonderful three story stone located in the heart of Ambler Borough. The current family has loved this home for 46 years, so as you can imagine, saying goodbye isn’t easy, but their departure opens up a golden opportunity for you that you do not want to miss.
As you approach the home, you will fall in love with the old world charm and welcoming porch. A front porch is a must have for Ambler living, offering the perfect place to relax and wave to neighbors as they pass by. Even better, this porch was recently redone with maintenance free composite decking and railings.
Inside you will love the abundance of natural light, high ceilings, and deep windowsills. Entering from the porch, you will find a spacious living room with a wood burning stove, ceiling fan, and coat closet. The living room opens into the nicely sized dining room which features a charming built-in china cabinet. Off of the dining room you will find a den that is able to serve a multitude of uses. It could also make for a great playroom, office, or could even be used as a 1st floor bedroom for guests who need one floor living. All three of these rooms boast beautiful hardwood flooring.
Beyond the dining room is a bright eat-in kitchen boasting a meticulously maintained cast iron drainboard sink (swoon!), vintage cabinetry offering plenty of storage, and gas cooking. Off of the kitchen you find the laundry/mudroom with outside access, as well as access to a full bathroom with a walk-in shower. Not only is it great to have the laundry on the first floor, but 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.
Upstairs, the second floor offers four bedrooms, a full bathroom, and hall linen closet. The third floor presents two large bedrooms featuring beautiful angles and nooks. There is plenty of space on both the second and third floor, enabling a future owner to create a fabulous master suite while still maintaining a four/five bedroom house.
Down below, the basement offers a ton of storage.
Out back you’ll find a newer landing, also constructed of no maintenance composite decking, and a sweet rear yard with fencing and a shed. Other important details include a new roof, replacement windows, and driveway parking.
This home is just blocks away from wonderful restaurants, breweries and shops, a movie theater, playhouse, library, seasonal farmers market, and year-round festivals. That said, you don’t even have to leave your street to have a good time as this is a very tight knit neighborhood! 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 bounds of Lower Gwynedd Elementary.
