Be enamoured by this original Maple Grove One Room School House which dates back to 1877 and one of the most significant homes in Gwynedd Valley. It has a mid century 20th two-story addition designed by Edwin Brumbaugh with period details, moldings and large windows from that time, while updated for today's lifestyle. The beautiful stone exterior and woodwork offers craftsmanship rarely seen in homes today. The Grand covered front porch is perfect for sipping an iced tea or entertaining guests. The formal entry foyer still retains the "old school" charm with the original bookcases and warming fireplace. The sun-filled living room of the home features 11' ceilings, enormous windows and an additional fireplace. You are drawn into this one-of-a-kind property and greeted by the touches that are a nod to the property's history, like railings, arched doorways, substantial moldings, beautiful refinished hardwood floors, and exposed stone. The Kitchen has newer backsplash with new stainless steel Bosch range and dishwasher, white cabinets, newer quartz countertop and island with seating. The kitchen and adjoining family room are the heart of the residence. Installed hardwood flooring in the 2 first floor bedrooms and new storm windows. Converted Primary bedroom to ensuite bathroom for main bedroom keeping the charm of yesteryear intact! There are dual vanities, radiant heat flooring and Plantation shutters. Upstairs there are 2 generously sized bedrooms each with unique dormers allowing for an abundance of natural light, large closets and 1 full bath. Outside the garage is a unique sitting area. There is a side breakfast patio off of the kitchen along with a French door off the family room that leads to a custom flagstone patio and expansive great lawn with significant landscaping.
