316 Parsons Avenue is a quaint, quiet street in Bala Cynwyd, Lower Merion Township. This 3-storied “farmhouse-style” twin boasts 4 bedrooms, 1.5 bathrooms, has a dedicated 1 car driveway, a covered front porch, front, side, and rear gardens, and a back deck and yard. From the front yard to the back, newly mulched flower beds are ready for your flowers, shrubbery, and next year’s herbs and vegetables. The back yard is shaded by mature trees and enclosed at the far end with a charming stone wall. The front door opens to the living room and has a straight-through view of the dining room and kitchen. The entire 1st floor is freshly painted a calming neutral grey and is complimented by dark laminate flooring in both the living and dining rooms. The heart of this home is the bright and functional kitchen which has been updated with granite countertops and light grey flooring. A vaulted ceiling, matching stainless steel appliances, a large plate glass window with views of the deck and yard make this kitchen the perfect place to plan and cook meals, and entertain indoors and out. At the top of the stairs on the 2nd floor is a small bedroom. There is a full hall bathroom recently outfitted with a new shower surround. And a large primary bedroom with his and her closets. Bedrooms 3 and 4 occupy the 3rd floor on either side of the stairs. The front bedroom has built-in shelving, and the back bedroom has a nice-sized closet. At the bottom of the basement stairs to the right is the laundry area with a washer and dryer, hot water heater, boiler, 100A electric panel, and solid shelving for storage. Both the central area of the basement and the adjacent "bonus room" with a door are blank canvases. An uncommon feature of this home is its "2nd basement" that is only accessible from the yard through the Bilko doors. This space is perfect for tools, a small shop setup, and storage. This neighborhood is full of nearby amenities. Less than a few hundred yards from the house is a playground and just down the road the new owners will enjoy some of Lower Merion’s favorite local delicatessens, restaurants, shopping, and easy access to both downtown Philadelphia as well as the many boroughs, villages and towns of the lower Main Line. The beautiful Bala Cynwyd library and a large variety of civic and community facilities are all within walking distance. All this and the Blue-Ribbon Lower Merion School District at an affordable price.
