This exceedingly charming 5 bedroom 3.5 bath home sits on stunning grounds on Bala Cynwyd s most desirable street! The property offers private access to the Cynwyd Trail. The train DOES NOT ACTIVELY RUN behind the home. Resting in a quiet upscale tree-lined community, 308 Llandrillo Road takes the prize when it comes to location, location, location. The highly sought-after address in a family-friendly community provides excellent walkability to the Bala Cynwyd Park, Cynwyd Heritage Trail (direct private entrance), Septa Cynwyd Train Station and Cynwyd Club within minutes. Topping that are local Blue Ribbon Schools for the kids, and easy access to all transportation routes for commuting including 76. Making this gem even more appealing is its enchanting historic character and recent upgrades of which there are many. These include fresh interior and exterior paint, and an impeccable down-to-the-studs first-floor renovation creating a new richly-appointed chef s kitchen with custom hardwood cabinets, granite counters, marble backsplash and Jenn-Air appliances, plus a lovely new powder room. New high-grade Canadian oak hardwood floors enrich the first and second levels, and new wiring and electrical extends throughout the house. Other highlights are a new central air conditioning system with new ductwork, new high-efficiency Weil Mclain gas furnace and matching water heater system, new washer and dryer in the basement, a Torpedod sewer line, new asphalt driveway and much more. Further enhancing its allure as a rare and special dream home is its architectural elegance, with tasteful details like vaulted ceilings, generous windows and skylights inviting in natural light, a fabulous sunroom with walls of window for reading and relaxing, and a gracious layout with circular flow for effortless living and entertaining. The storied stone and shingled cottage was part of the development of the area in circa 1900 which demanded new roads and followed a family tradition of using Welsh names such as Clwyd, Colwyn, Llanberris, Llandrillo, Rhyl, and Trevor. The surrounding country was and still is of great beauty, very well-kept and convenient to all local amenities, Main Line points, as well as the city through Fairmount Park. The last train stop on the Cynwyd Line is Cynwyd Station, which a 2 minute walk from the home. The rail line has been converted into the Cynwyd Trail as part of the Rails To Trails project similar to the Rail Park in Philly and the High Line in New York City. There is direct private access to the Cynwyd Trail from the backyard. It s an absolute jewel in a prime locale that must not be missed and remains part of the pedigree of this coveted neighborhood.
