Welcome home! To this beautiful 1948 stone colonial in the heart of rydal! Situated on an open 2. 3 acre parcel that is fully fenced for gardening or playing outdoors. Situated on the corner of valley and washington with the driveway wrapping around the home between 2 gates, one on each road. Off the porch is a lovely picket fenced garden that includes peach, plum, apricot & apple trees along with blueberry bushes. Approach the front door, enter into the main entry hall, and you will begin to appreciate the details, like the wide-plank, random-width oak floors, arched case openings & the large stone fireplace in the living room. The light that streams through the abundant windows fills every room all day. The dining room (with access to the screened porch) overlooks the front yard.
