On over half-acre at southern tip of Montgomery County in Lafayette Hill, this 3 bedroom, 3 full bath detached 2-story stone and stucco home offers history, architectural interest, and flexible floor plan for the savvy buyer. HISTORY: The Houston Family transformed a gate house into a comfortable home in 1931. ARCHITECTURE: John A. Bower, Jr., renowned Philadelphia architect, bought property in 1994 and designed and created a brilliant addition that added both space and charm to the home. FLEXIBLE FLOOR PLAN: Bower's 1999 addition, designed as a spacious 1st floor master bedroom suite with walk-in closets, large master bath and exit into small garden by the driveway, could also be a superb 1st floor professional home office with its own entrance for the solo practitioner--a use sanctioned by Springfield Township zoning regulations. FLOOR PLAN: 1st floor: Protected main entrance from rear patio into small vestibule with large closet; Formal dining room with non-functioning fireplace with Federal style mantel, tile surround and granite hearth, built-in shelving, original built-in china cupboard; Kitchen with beamed ceiling, sexagonal clay-tile flooring, gas cooking, butcher block counters, porcelain sink, dishwasher, stainless steel refrigerator, and wall of antique cabinetry dating to the Houston Family renovation; Living room, (or Library) with wall of bookshelves, beamed ceiling, fireplace, sunny south-facing windows with deep sills and exit to blue-stone patio. At one end of the living room is enclosure with washer and dryer and another small enclosure with electric panel box. The dining room and living room are connected by a landing leading to the steps to the 2nd floor. The Bower addition to the first floor includes a walk-in pantry/storage closet with access to attic, built-in cabinet that can serve as a bar, full bathroom with ceramic tile, shower over tub (whirlpool in tub never used), very large bedroom with deep walk-in closet, exit to small walled garden by the driveway and rear exit to private patio. 2nd floor: 3 rooms that include 2 good-sized bedrooms with closets and small office with built-in desk, shelving and storage, 2 full baths--one off the hall, one off the small office. Basement: Partial, under original house, for utilities, storage, work space with exit to outside. Crawl space under addition and dining room. Utilities for original house: older gas boiler, 2016 gas hot water heater, electric circuit breaker panel, brand new 2021 central air system. Utilities for addition: 1999 electric heat pump. Public water; recently serviced private septic system. Asphalt shingle roof. (See home inspection for more information.) THE GROUNDS: Spectacular, private, fenced gardens at rear of house. Wisteria guards the gate to the blue stone patio entry with pond. Colorful perennials, garden beds dot the landscape that in the rear is marked by glorious, towering evergreens. A 40' wide driveway for access and parking is shared with neighbor at 9300 (each neighbor owning 20' with cross easement in place). Finally, Montgomery County will at some point be widening Ridge Pike. It has taken 10' from the front of 9302 and 9300 for the project. At this writing, timing has not been set for the start of construction. More details/documentation available. Easy to show. Zoning, road widening, cross easement, septic docs available for examination at the property. 12 hour notice. Settlement timing flexible.
