222 Rutgers Ave,

Swarthmore, PA 19081

A fabulous location with tremendous potential and opportunity describes 222 Rutgers Avenue. This grand, Dutch colonial home has more than 4,200 square feet of space over three stories, plus a full basement and attic. Built in 1900, the house has six bedrooms, two sleeping porches, and 3-1/2 bathrooms. The house was built and designed with expansive and comfortable spaces for entertaining and everyday living. The front entrance has a deep porch that runs the width of the house; this a perfect place to curl up and enjoy a sunny morning or rainy day and views of the front yard and dedicated green park across the street. The front door leads to an ample entrance hall that centers the house. On the main floor, there is a formal living room with a wood burning fireplace, a proper dining room with a small fireplace that brings elegance to special occasions, and a large family room with its own fireplace to provide warmth and formality. The kitchen is spacious and designed with a generous eating area. The central stairs are beautifully and thoughtfully designed, with windows at each landing. The second floor includes a front bedroom with en-suite bathroom and a second front bedroom with a shared access pass-through bathroom that connects to a large back bedroom with a sleeping porch. The third floor has one full bathroom, two well-proportioned front bedrooms, and a large third bedroom with the second sleeping porch. The house has a number of charming architectural features, including casement windows, full baseboard and crown molding, French doors, decorative mantels, chair rails, and Wharton Esherick tiles in the floor of the front porch. The property has a large, two-car detached garage with mechanics pit, original sliding barn doors, and a brick fireplace. This unique structure has a second story with exterior access. The landscaping features low brick walls along the edges of the front yard, a brick side patio, and a wooden deck in the back off of the kitchen. Please know that 222 Rutgers was recently damaged by a fire and is in need of full renovation. Therefore, this home is being sold in as-is condition and the buyer will be responsible for the Boroughs Use & Occupancy Permit. The seller will acquire a Temporary Access Certificate by the date of settlement. More photos and floor plans to be available on Wednesday, September 27.
