Introducing the Foreman House, an absolutely incredible opportunity to purchase a stunningly renovated 1830âs federal style home that was originally part of the Thomas Leiper Estate. Uniquely zoned for Residential, Commercial, and Industrial use, the property has been home to families, as well as entrepreneurs, inventors, craftsmen and artists. This property offers a blend of residential and commercial space, making it the perfect opportunity for those seeking a one-of-a-kind residential or business experience. Surrounded by nature yet ideally located just minutes off I476 and I95 and close to both the Swarthmore and Wallingford train stations, this home sits adjacent to Leiper Park and is surrounded on two sides by Springhaven Country Club and the other by Avondale Road and Crum Creek. Both sides of the home have ample parking and offer a sense of seclusion with canopies of mature trees, lush greenery and breathtaking locally harvested quarry stone. With over 3000 sq ft, this home boasts eye-catching original crown molding, curved stairs cases, stained glass, two gas fireplaces and exposed brick. It exudes character, history and charm yet has been tastefully updated with every modern amenity needed to thrive in business and residential living. The original random width hardwood and modern concrete floors throughout add a touch of sophistication and reflect the perfect blend of old and new. The first floor features a large entry foyer with custom shelving and a HUGE studio with soaring vaulted ceilings, modern kitchen, built in shelving and access to the enchanting rear patio (perfect for alfresco entertaining). This space has limitless potential as office, industrial or residential space and is truly remarkable. There are also two additional rooms that could be used for a myriad of purposes (including meeting rooms, bedrooms, conference roomsâ¦), a glorious sun porch and a perfectly placed full bathroom with stained glass. The second floor has a separate entrance with a private deck offering lovely views overlooking the spring-fed waterfall and brook. With a blend of old-world charm and modern amenities, the recently renovated kitchen has a built-in eating area, closet space and impressive living area with plenty of sunlight. The curved stairs lead you to the ensuite bedroom which features a vintage-modernized full bath and soaking tub. The Foreman House offers infinite possibilities as both an extraordinary family home or an exceptional workspace and investment opportunity in a highly desirable location in the award-winning Wallingford-Swarthmore School District.
