Property Description

Originally known as "Rose Hedge", this 1924 Dutch colonial-style home was built and owned by successive generations of the Furness family. The patriarch, Frank Furness was a noted Philadelphia architect. The property features generous lawn areas and is well-screened by mature trees and plantings. A perennial garden bordered by rhododendrons and anchored by tall oak and beech trees is the focus of the back yard, along with a circular pond with fountain. The Belgian block -lined driveway leads to a detached two-car garage with loft and pull-down staircase. The facade of the home is stone and wood, accented by original double-hung windows with original shutters or custom replacements. At the front, a stone walkway leads to a pillared portico and the original front door enhanced with window panes and sidelites. The gracious entry hall opens to the dining room on the left with French doors, corner cabinets and double chair rail. To the right is the well-appointed living room whose focal point is a generously sized and craftsman-detailed fireplace surround and mantle enclosing gas-fired logs. Accent lighting sets the mood for entertaining. The adjoining sunroom/family room, entered through French doors has a vaulted ceiling, accent lighting, a ceiling fan and a two-story stone fireplace, also gas-fired. With its separate entrance, the room can also serve as a home office. There are hardwood floors throughout the first floor, while the second floor is entirely carpeted. Tucked behind the main rooms is a small library with built-in shelves lining two walls and access to the powder room, coat closet and door leading to the covered porch. To the left is an updated open kitchen-family room featuring seating and dining areas, high-end appliances, granite countertops, pendant lights, Pella windows and custom TV cabinet with crown molding. The cabinet also houses a gas-fired fireplace. On the second floor, the primary suite consists of a bedroom, a dressing room with racks and drawers by California Closets and a marble tiled bathroom. Three other bedrooms open onto a central hallway with access to a second full bathroom. There is also the convenience of a 2nd floor Laundry Room. The walk-up stair access to the attic makes it possible to add a finished third floor. The home also has a whole-house Kohler generator, a security system, landscape and security lighting and a Bose speaker system. Located in the desirable Bowling Green neighborhood of Nether Providence Township, the close-knit community continues long-held traditions such as the tree lighting at Christmas and block party in early September. Neighbors also enjoy activities such as a garden tour and cookbook sale to benefit the local food bank. It is within walking distance to the trolley, shops, restaurants and street festivals in downtown Media Borough and is served by the highly ranked Wallingford-Swarthmore School District. Location, condition and size - this Bowling Green gem has it all! More pictures coming soon!
