Description

Nestled on a secluded road in "Old Wyncote", this custom-built 1963 Colonial is a hidden gem in an idyllic setting. This unique property and its 1.4 acres provides a personal oasis with a peaceful, LOW-MAINTENANCE, fenced, spring-fed pond. (Check the bottom for more on how to care for the pond.) Imagine spending your mornings with a cup of coffee or moonlit evenings overlooking the picturesque surroundings from your elevated deck and gazebo With partially cleared woodlands beyond the pond, you'll feel like you're in the countryside or the Poconos, yet conveniently located within walking distance to the Jenkintown-Wyncote Train Station. As you step inside the home, you enter the center hall. To the left, the spacious living room has original hardwood floors, a wood-burning fireplace and a wall of built-in shelves and cabinets. A large bay window in the rear, provides excellent natural light and beautiful year-round views of the pond and backyard. To the right of the center hall, is the formal dining room. Picture the holiday dinner parties you could host in this large space... which leads into the bright and open kitchen with plenty of counter space, cabinets and a view of the backyard. Next to the kitchen, you'll find the first-floor powder room, remodeled in 2020, and a laundry area/mudroom by the rear staircase. There are doors in the kitchen that lead to the backyard patio (for easy grilling and entertaining) and to a second front door (which ended up being the main entry for the current owners because of its proximity to the driveway).The finished basement offers additional living space with a second fireplace, a full bathroom and a workshop with ample storage. The walk-out basement leads you directly to the backyard and pond. Upstairs, the primary suite consists of a large dressing room and vanity area, plenty of closet space and an en-suite with a shower and separate bathtub. Three additional good-sized bedrooms on the second floor share a hall bathroom. There's a small fifth room by the back staircase which can be used as an office or large closet. The fully floored attic, which can be access by a pull-down staircase, provides even more storage. The home has two-zoned central A/C and is serviced by a two-zoned gas boiler. While the property feels secluded and private, 431 Crescent Road is conveniently located near public transportation, stores and restaurants. This piece of heaven is the house you didn't think you'd find so close to the city.Notice the relatively low taxes. Tax assessment was appealed several years ago and taxes were reduced.Because the pond is spring-fed there is no need for maintenance. The water comes from the ground and flows over the damn into the other pond on the neighbor's property. If there is too much storm water runoff, it also flows into the neighbor's pond below. There is no need to remove leaves because they eventually sink and provide nutrients. The fish are self-sufficient so the owner only feeds them occasionally for fun.
