Welcome to 222 Moylan Avenue, a rare and beautiful Arts and Crafts home built by Walter F. Price in 1910 for Franklin N. Brewer, the General Manager at Wanamakers in Philadelphia. This 5-bedroom, 3.1-bathroom home, which was named "The Trees" in honor of its lush and tranquil setting, sits on a large, approximately 1.5-acre lot that includes an outbuilding/detached garage and a circular driveway. It feels tucked away, yet is close to Media borough, Wallingford-Swarthmore schools, and the lovely surrounding neighborhood. 222 Moylan features an original (but recently and thoroughly refreshed) ceramic tile roof, four fireplaces, soaring beamed ceilings, wood flooring, and gracious rooms, as well as newer kitchen and bathroom updates. Exquisite details abound including unique windows, gorgeous trim and woodwork, and built-in cabinets. Pull into the driveway and enter the home to the foyer with a stunning staircase and built-in bench. Take in the beauty of the vast living room, featuring a dramatic stone floor-to-ceiling fireplace and massive ceiling beams. There is a Dutch door to the charming porch that runs along the backside of the home â the perfect place to unwind or socialize with family and friends. Next is the generous, light-filled dining room with built-in cabinets. Follow along to the butler's pantry, filled with custom cabinetry, that leads to the gorgeous new kitchen with white cabinets, stainless appliances, and quartz counters. There is a back staircase for convenience, and a door to the backyard. From the kitchen discover a spacious laundry room with lots of shelving and nooks for storage, and a door leading to the side yard. A charming half bath and coat closet complete this floor. Upstairs discover the primary bedroom with a fireplace, custom shelving, and an adjoining dressing/reading room. Down the hall is a 2nd family/living room with a fireplace that could serve as another bedroom. There are 2 updated, sizable full bathrooms â 1 with a tub-shower combination and the other with a shower. A large hall walk-in linen closet, office nook, and 2 additional bedrooms complete this floor. The 3rd floor has been beautifully finished to include 2 sizable bedrooms with a large closet and lots of storage space, as well as another full bathroom with a soaking tub. The unfinished basement with egress is very large; it houses the utilities and has plenty of storage space. Finally, the grounds of this property are quite lovely, and they offer endless potential for future gardens, childrenâs play areas, a fire pit, and even a pool. There is an original outbuilding (once a stable) that is currently used for storage but could fit one car. Next to it is a large, conditioned (mini split for heat/AC) room that is currently used as an exercise room. The location of this home is wonderful â very close to two train stations, downtown Media, major roadways, Philadelphia, and the airport. Historic images courtesy of The Athenaeum of Philadelphia.
