First, a bit of Knight Park's proud history: many homes surrounding it were part of the early Collings-Knight homestead. To escape the summer heat in Philadelphia, people built summer cottages here. This Colonial beauty with an architect designed addition is on one of Collingswood's most historic and quaint streets. Custom gourmet kitchen with 2 tier peninsula/glass front hickory cabinetry blends seamlessly with turn of the century hardwood and yellow pine floors, original woodwork. Well placed task and pendant lighting, ceramic tile flooring. Commercial gas range, electric wall oven-great for entertaining. Spacious first floor Master suite w/walk-in closet is tucked at the back of the house, with large Andersen windows & French door to custom 12 x 12 trex deck. This tranquil setting offers refuge for your soul-a myriad of perennial plants and lush trees create a gardener's dream: forsythia; hydrangea; lilac; clematis; iris; peony; day lily; columbine and azalea. Mature peach and pine trees, along with Leyland cypress provide towering privacy hedges. The front and side yards offer up perennial gems as well. Main hallway with laundry has long leaf yellow pine floors. 1st floor bath is divided nicely by a pocket door between a large vanity and walk in shower. Nearby room could be a bedroom or office. Front porch is a place unto itself: Original front door, with slender window lights, mahogany flooring, stone walls and beautiful wood trim. The stone carries over to the family room fireplace, flanked by handmade glass front cabinets/shelving. Deep mantle for artwork or flat screen TV/media center. Upstairs has two very large front bedrooms with a sunny, open sitting area plus two other bedrooms. Ideally, these two rooms could be opened up to create another suite/walk-in closet since they are next to a charming full bath with claw foot soaking tub. Please review the seller property disclosure for more details. This is truly a forever home. The owners have enjoyed this neighborhood: the easy walk to downtown restaurants, shops and the Farmer's Market; concert series in the park and summer fireworks right around the corner at the high school football field. Students will enjoy rolling out of bed and to school, just around the block! 10 minute walk to the Speedline into Philly!
