Description for 609 Hill Avenue Langhorne, PA 19047
Nestled in Langhorne Manor, 609 Hill Avenue is a spacious sun-filled craftsman cottage style home with an interesting connection to famous American author Ernest Hemingway, who visited with his dear friend, the original owner, Doctor Henry Fowler who built the house in 1918. A lush landscape and award-winning gardens with many specimen plantings, including a fern garden, creates a welcoming entry as the pillared steps lead you to the sunroom entrance. This amazing space with hardwood floors, and glass reclaimed from the Academy of Natural Sciences of Philadelphia where Doctor Fowler served as curator of fish and reptiles allows yearlong viewing of the award winning gardens with a relaxed ambiance. Stepping into the living room you see this home has been meticulously restored and maintained with love. The original river stone hearth stretches to the ceiling as an iguana artifact rests above the fireplace. Doctor Fowler wanted to share his passion for his study of rare fish with all the owners of his home through this very unique design element. You will also find a sun and a paw print embedded among the fireplace rocks by Doctor Fowler, which you can be sure was a topic of discussion between him and Mister Hemingway. The gleaming hardwood floors continue throughout the entire main level as the banquet style dining room opens with a blissful color palette and plenty of streaming rays of sunlight. Giving the chef a warm and endearing workspace the kitchen features a tiled backsplash with contrasting earth tones, an original built-in with an array of additional cabinet space and shelving, and a convenient secondary entrance from the driveway. Bedroom one is nicely sized and offers a lovely infusion of natural light and neutral d~cor. The hall bath with double vanity boasts bronze hardware and a window with privacy glass. A bedroom and a sitting room can create a master suite on this level if you choose. The wide landing upstairs adds to the homes spacious appeal and leads to three additional rooms. Each room offers its own characteristics and there is also plenty of storage and a second full bath on this level too. Outside, a peaceful patio setting off the sunroom is surrounded by thoughtfully designed gardens, a grassy knoll bordered by evergreens and a second flagstone patio create outdoor living areas that will bring you hours of enjoyment. And a quaint, large shed keeps lawn and gardens neat and organized. Call today for your private tour.
