Unexpected. Turn key. A Rare Find in Wallingford. Take a breath as you drive down the private drive to 31 S. Providence Road. The owners have purposely kept the bumps in the drive to slow you down. You're entering another world of tranquil privacy and beauty in an extremely convenient location!Nestled in 1.5 acres of land, this 1941 Farmhouse Colonial was constructed using quality materials with a solid foundation and rugged brick siding. In those days, the walls were sheathed with smooth wallboard or plaster and the floor laid with durable wood flooring. Today, the square footage is 4,099, quite a change from its original footprint and worth every inch. Part of the one of the additions includes a stunning Sunroom that is filled with light and warmth. There is a Dining area here and a full bath. It features panoramic views of the Back Yard from the side to side picture windows, an eyebrow window to the sky and skylights. With views akin to an arboretum, the park-like Backyard includes many majestic mature trees, including several Cryptomiria Japonica, a Dawn Redwood, a spectacular Southern Magnolia, towering Sweet Gum, variegated Willow and many more specimen plantings and trees with perennials and annuals placed in beds below, that together form a dramatic backdrop to a lush backyard. You'll sit for hours there, or on the elevated Deck that runs the entire length of the house with access from the Sunroom, Living Room and Foyer. The Living Room is directly off the Foyer and with its access to the Deck and SunRoom, you'll find entertaining to be both intimate and easy for large gatherings. The custom built shelving with arch headers that surround the original fireplace fill this room with charm and character. Like to cook? The Eat-in Country Kitchen is updated for today's cook with a classic triangle design and includes a large Dining Area, warm Custom Cherry Cabinetry over a Mexican tile Back-splash, a deep and wide Quartz Island and premium Stainless Appliances. For quiet time, look no further than the Fully Finished Walk Out Basement, with 12X12 Tile Flooring throughout, Family Room, Laundry area, and beautiful Back Bedroom with picture window, walk-in closet, built-ins and full bathroom. Wake up to Hostas , Ostrich ferns and green green grass as your view! This is a perfect place for guests, an older child or a home office. On the 2nd floor, you'll enjoy large bedrooms and updated bathrooms. One bedroom includes an office that leads to the larger bedroom with a vaulted ceiling and windows that surround you with treed views. Another has an ensuite Bathroom large enough to include a Glass enclosed shower, tiled with custom shelving and built ins, and a custom Double Bowl Corian sink and solid Cherry Cabinets. And another is directly off the Hall Bath; so bright and clean! Walk up to the spacious floored Attic, yet another place for storage. Behind the yard is an adorable 16X16 Garden Storage Shed and a deep wooded area that assures peaceful privacy. A 1 car Attached Garage is right off the Kitchen. It's completely repainted and feels fresh and clean; you'll want to do more than house your car there! This house has had only two owners, each for many decades, who have both meticulously and lovingly maintained-and updated it. Central Air. The Blue Ribbon Wallingford-Swarthmore schools are across and down the street. Media, America's Hometown, is so close you can walk, cycle or drive there in minutes. The train is right around the corner. And all major routes are easily accessible, with Philadelphia and Wilmington an easy commute. Don't miss this beautiful home!
